£115 per room per night including breakfast and cream tea on arrival
Our home has two spacious ensuite double rooms - "The Fal" and "The Minack". Our prices, per room range from £90/night including breakfast (low season) to £115/night including breakfast (high season).
We're located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the Cornwall Coastal Path. Many gorgeous walks start from our house.
As well as being awarded a 5-star rating by enjoyEngland, our accommodation has a Gold Award for the quality of accommodation and customer service and a Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
We believe that we offer many of the facilities of an hotel on the Roseland and in St Mawes, but with greater attention to detail and a more attentive personal service. We have also been awarded an enjoyEngland breakfast award for the quality of the locally sourced breakfasts we provide.
Both of our boutique B&B rooms have flat-screen TVs, DVD players and Vita R2i integrated digital radios and iPod docking stations. Their sound quality is superb.
Both rooms have a contemporary B&B feel and we provide tea and coffee making facilities, Cornish biscuits and silent mini-fridges stocked with a selection of complimentary fruit juices and Pure Blue mineral water.

"This is the ultimate 'relax and unwind' destination. Miles away from even the hint of a busy road, the green fields seem to stretch on forever in all directions. The accommodation may feature some truly luxurious interiors, but it is also the warm, homely atmosphere (and delicious home-cooked food) that no doubt keeps guests coming back to Roundhouse Barns."

How does Roundhouse Barn minimise its impact on the environment and contribute to a sense of place?
Having earned Gold from the GTBS, Roundhouse Barn has implemented a wide range of green initiatives to reduce its draw on natural resources. These include a solar thermal for hot water. We also have a new sewage treatment plant replacing our septic tank and highly efficient oil fired boilers. All our appliances are A rated and there is low energy lighting in the accommodation. They recycle paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and tin as well as responsibly disposing of low energy light bulbs and batteries. In 2010, they recycled over 2 tonnes of paper, glass, plastic, tin and cardboard. They have bulk dispensers of toiletries, and use ecover products for cleaning.
They have a private water supply and have installed a water meter to monitor our water consumption on a monthly basis. They have low flush toilets throughout and low flow dishwashers. All of the B&B food is sourced locally, with 95% from within 5 miles of the accommodation. To reduce the impact of traffic congestion on the natural landscapes and biodiversity of the Roseland Peninsula, they actively encourage leisure pursuits that do not need a car and guests can easily arrived on food or by cycle.
