Exploring the Barrow Centre at Mount Edgcumbe
The Upcycled Home Co. are very lucky to have our gorgeous shop situated in the simply stunning grounds of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park. But, we're not the only small, independent business that calls the Barrow Centre home. Situated just behind the main house and at the bottom of the steps from The Barrow Centre Car Park you will find several small businesses all offering unique experiences to enhance your visit.
The Farriers Cafe
The Farriers is a family run cafe situated in the old Edgcumbe stables next to the shop. It’s mission is to provide locally sourced, great homemade food. You’ll receive a warm welcome from their friendly team and they welcome children and dogs too.
Kate Williams Weaving
Upstairs in the Barrow Centre is the weaving studio of artist Kate Williams. Kate is a weaver who tries to make life difficult for herself. She uses a mechanical dobby loom as a constraint and challenges herself to find ways to convert her ideas into lively woven wall hangings of rich texture with plenty of colours. Every piece is designed and made on site in the studio which is generally open to the public on weekdays.
Our lovely shop and studio at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park sustains our connection with our community in what many people describe as “the forgotten corner” of Cornwall. You'll find us sewing, cutting and printing in our studios next to the shop. Open weekdays from 10-4, come and browse our collections of Cornish made, sustainable linen and bamboo homeware - great for gifting and for treating yourself too! Choose from lampshade and cushions, beautiful handprinted kitchen linens including tea towels, bread bags and bowl covers, our bamboo wellbeing range includes shower mitts, hair towels, makeup wipes and more. We even sell fabric and threads.
