Bulrush Barn is named after the Bulrushes that can be seen on the Salt Marsh from the bedroom which views down to the river. It is a traditional stone barn set on the upper floor which provides romantic cosy accommodation for 2-3 people staying at Lower Marsh Farm. Converted in 2018 with a open plan living space with a modern kitchen area, dining area and comfortable corner sofa  near the log burner with views into the garden. There is a spacious bedroom with a king sized bed and separate single day bed (suitable a young child or just relaxing on with a good book!). The luxury en-suite bathroom has a walk-in shower and separate bath for soaking in.

Outside there’s a private garden area with views across fields, outside cooking facilities with a table and chairs for al-fresco dining. Also in the large, fenced, private garden, is a stylish *wood-fired hot tub (logs are free of charge and sustainably sourced from the farm).

Guests have full access to all of our amenities – including tennis court, orchard and picnic area, basketball hoop, woodland and private shingle beach. Also we are Cornwall Wildlife Trust Members which gives our guests access to their wildlife education sessions for children which include mini-beast safaris, rock pooling events and bird box making. We can also offer our guests discounted tickets for the Lost Gardens of Heligan  and Eden Project. The farm is managed in an eco-friendly manner and you can find out more about this here – we are happy to explain how this works during your visit.

Should you find yourself needing to attend to a little ‘office’ work during your stay, then we even have that covered. Our guests are welcome to use our brand new  ‘hot desk’ facility free of charge. Fitted with a convenient kitchen area, you can help yourself to complimentary tea and coffee, knowing that you are not too far away from your friends and family. You’ll be back to relaxing in no time!

After a day of exploring the Farm and nearby areas, relax with a drink in front of the roaring log burner. You are welcome to use wood from our wood store.

There are so many things to do here and out and about, but we have rainy days covered too.  The barn comes complete with a flat screen satellite television and DVD player. There are books and DVDs in the property for your use.
