Here’s what our visitors say about Lopwell Barn. 

Claire – Plymouth

We’ve just spent the weekend at Lopwell Barn for a 50th birthday. What a fab place, lovely surroundings, a well equipped barn perfect for gatherings full of food, drink and good company. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to hire a location for any social gathering.

Abigail – Plymouth

Had a brilliant weekend at Lopwell barn for a family gathering. Great place for large groups. Has everything you might need. Fun games, stunning views, walks, pizzas in the cob oven outside, BBQ fire pit, guitars , big cook ups Absolutely recommend Lopwell barn.

Rob – Plymouth

To paraphrase Bill Bryson: Best bunkbarn ever! What do you mean you’ve never heard of it? Here are my car keys. Go immediately.

Fabulous location of course, but the attention to detail is a great credit to Jon and the team. Pizza oven is particularly fun, the roof over the [amazing] firepit makes the outdoors rainproof, and the chill-out benches out front are perfect. Tremendous.
