Kestle Barton is an ancient Cornish farmstead situated above the Helford River. Following an award-winning conservation and conversion project the beautiful old farm buildings have new uses, one of the barns becoming an elegant gallery that opened in 2010.

In the gallery, garden and wild flower meadow beyond, we have a programme of four free exhibitions and a number of other events open to visitors each year, from early April to late October.

Surrounding barns and the old farmhouse have been converted into stylish and comfortable holiday accommodation, all profits from which go towards funding the exhibition and event programme. We are grateful to Arts Council England for further support.
