An impressive 1930s detached property close to all amenities including the St Austell rail and bus station which are within a 10 minute walk. Claire and Brian give you a 'home from home' Cornish welcome and provide a wonderful breakfast from full English to freshly made fruit salad with yoghurt, toast and home-made jams.

We stayed for 2 nights with our teenage kids and our little dog as part of our Cornwall trip. Claire and Brian are so welcoming, that you feel as if you are visiting friends. To say the place is spotless is an understatement! Claire is a talented cook. I know that B&B's knock
