Our small bathroom ceiling is covered in this and varnished. Likewise our flat roofed sun-room. Is there a reason why these surfaces can't be painted white?

To do the job properly you'd need to get rid of the layer of varnish that tongue-&-groove pine comes with. However it's not impossible:
I should have mention that it needs finishing off with 2 coats of oil based eggshell.
As long as you clean the surface, and sugar soap is the best for this, there should be no need for the laborious process of stripping off the varnish, BUT do not use emulsion paint, use only oil based paints, undercoat and finish.
