Sustainability ruled the design, build and furnishing and the cottage is set to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes level 5. Materials are eco-friendly, recycled and locally sourced.
The photography throughout the magazine article showcases the enormous timber beams that were reclaimed from the old St Lawrence’s Hospital in Bodmin. Owner Pat Smith was amazed when she determined an approximate age of the wood.
“There were 265 rings on just one of the beams which was almost a whole tree, plus the 100 years since they were used at the hospital means the tree was alive in the 1600’s. That beats stress graded timber!”
She is delighted with the Ideal Home feature.
“It is so important to us that Lowen’s décor would feature artwork and furniture from Cornish artists and crafts people. It was hard to do but an article like this shows that we were successful in achieving both ethical and aesthetical beauty.”
The magazine then goes on to detail the suppliers that helped to make Lowen such a unique holiday let, which is all good for local business.
The feature is an endorsement of the painstaking decisions that the Smith family took to create a sustainable and beautiful new addition to their set of 19 holiday cottages, set in 30 acres of meadows and woodland.
