Experience the ultimate eco-friendly self-catering holiday

Introducing your cottage

The name, Lowen, stands for ‘low energy’ – but it’s also Cornish for happy. It’s a zero carbon, energy self-sufficient house using energy from the sun and ground to provide electricity, heating and hot water for guests – and it also sends surplus electricity back to the grid. Lowen has parking alongside with a Type 2 EV charging point for electric vehicles. 

Everywhere you look there are huge wooden beams, reclaimed from demolition and full of irreplaceable character. We put them together like Meccano and filled in the gaps with straw bales, pegged with hazel twigs, reminiscent of a ‘Grand Designs’ project – covering the structure with lime mortar and breathable Eco paint. We have left some peep holes for you to look inside and hope you will be intrigued as we were when we set out to recreate a building using traditional regional methods of construction.

The living space

The living space is perfect for families or groups of friends and great for celebratory stays. Downstairs, it’s open plan, with huge windows offering beautiful views down the valley towards the woods. Facing south, the light filters in throughout the day, making the living space wonderfully inviting. There are squashy sofas to sink into as you watch the wildlife, our ponies grazing and the chickens and ducks pottering about in the fields outside. The cottage has gentle LED lighting, designer fabrics and cushions and local art and craft work to enhance the decor.

The house is always warm but to give extra ambience in the winter months there is a stylish modern wood burner (and the logs to feed it in the shed outside). The lounge also has Sky TV and a 65” LED wall-mounted screen – perfect for a film night.

The kitchen

The bespoke kitchen is locally handmade of whitewashed beech wood with a range of luxury fittings, including a retro American style fridge/freezer, electric cooker with induction hob, slate floor and granite work tops. We provide all the equipment you might need to rustle up a family feast or a bumper holiday breakfast.

The ground floor

On the ground floor there’s a twin bedroom with two 3ft single beds and a king size bedroom with a shared wet room with walk in power shower and stylish fitments suitable for guests who use a wheelchair.

The first floor

The first floor has a super king bedroom with a zip-link bed (which can be separated into twin beds on request) with lovely views over the valley to the golf course beyond, and ensuite bathroom with shower over the bath. Another double bedroom with handmade four poster bed and ensuite shower room can be found on the opposite side of the interior glass balcony which gives a wonderful feeling of space and light.

Outside space

Outside, there is a sheltered patio with outdoor furniture and barbeque perfect for al fresco group get-togethers. The garden hot tub has  glorious views over the fields by day and the star-strewn sky at night.


Lowen is ideal for families or groups with a member with mobility issues. It has level access and parking right outside the cottage, plus two ground floor bedrooms with shared wet room which is fully equipped for wheelchair users (including a walk/wheel-in shower and grab rails for easy transfer). We’ve also got a shower stool or shower wheelchair you can borrow – just let us know what you need and we’ll do our best to help.
