Old Lanwarnick now fully open

Joanna Somerset-Wood

A Cornish five star luxury holiday hamlet has completed its final development phase with the opening of a fifth listed self-catering barn conversion.

Listed Luxury at Old Lanwarnick is located at Duloe near Liskeard and was developed by owner Joanna Somerset-Wood and her partner Michael Harvey from a group of derelict farm buildings in a small hamlet recorded in the Domesday Book nearly 1,000 years ago.

The completion of the conversion of the two-bedroom Blackberry Barn completes the accommodation side of the project, but here are plans to introduce new holiday and wedding opportunities to the business.

Somerset-Wood said: “This has been a real labour of love. We fell in love with this place as soon as we saw it and could see how it could be developed. In the event we had to remove 17 buildings before we could make a proper start but we were superbly supported by the local conservation officer and Charles Hunt, our architect.”
