Harmony Homestay
Ranked #23 of 97 St Austell B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 July 2013

In June 2013 we spent three nights at Harmony Homestay. Hosts Charlie and Nigel were very welcoming, charming and knowledgeable of the local area. The accommodation was absolutely spotless and comfortable and the breakfasts delicious. We cannot recommend Harmony Homestay too highly and plan to return soon.

My wife Fiona & i recently stayed with Nigel & Charlie at Harmony Homestay on the outskirts of St. Austell. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone wishing to visit the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan etc. The house & bedrooms are spotlessly clean, excellent en-suite bathrooms & a breakfast that will see you through the day! As hosts Nigel & Charlie are welcoming & very helpful but allow you the privacy you need to relax whilst away from home & work. Nigel was helpful in making our day trips interesting by showing us places to visit that would otherwise have been missed. If you want a B&B of quality this is it...Steve & Fiona Barber, Glossop, Derbyshire.

Spent last weekend at Harmony Homestay with Charlie and Nigel and was very impressed. From the time we arrived with our friends, till the time we left (and returned again to collect shirts left in the wardrobe!) nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. Starting off with tea or coffee and home made cake on arrival, they were happy to put a bottle of wine in their fridge for us and to provide glasses when we were ready to drink it in the evening.

The rooms were immaculate - we had the smaller room downstairs and our friends had one of the large ones upstairs. They offered to move us upstairs for the second night but we found the "small" room more than adequate for us and didn't put them to the trouble of making up another room. Our bed was very comfortable indeed and we appreciated the tea, coffee and biscuits provided for a late night or pre breakfast drink. And the breakfasts - Charlie does a wonderful full English ( or is that Cornish?) complete with cereal, yoghurt and as much tea, coffee and toast as you can eat! Really set us up for the day - we shouldn't have needed to eat again until tea time!

Nigel is a mine of information about the area and has all sorts of brochures and printed sheets for driving instructions along the scenic routes, rather than the main roads.

All in all, a great stay - we left feeling as though we had made two new friends and would highly recommend Harmony Homestay for your next trip to Cornwall.

Room Tip: The larger rooms upstairs have views but the smaller room downstairs is a good size too so I wouldn...

Anyone fortunate enough to stay here with Charlie and Nigel are in for a real treat. Kind, knowledgeable and friendly - nothing is too much trouble in this lovely and beautifully appointed house, which feels like a home from home. Comfortable, spotlessly clean, immaculate bedrooms; splendid breakfasts, and a lovely little oasis of a garden. Your hosts have a deep love and knowledge of Cornwall, and are full of ideas and suggestions as to interesting things to do and marvellous places to see. It feels more like being pampered by special friends. Can't wait to go back again.....soon!

Charlie and Nige made us feel we were real friends during our stay. From tea on the lawn with sponge cake when we arrived to the wonderful breakfasts each morning.
Made us feel that they were privileged to have us stay with them, but the truth is, it was our privilege to know them as great hosts providing as much, if not, more than any 5 star hotel could give us.
Highly recommended does not go far enough to describe our experience.

We have rarely been so well looked after! Fantastic cream tea on arrival, freshly baked scones and lovely tea, a beautiful bedroom with a very comfy bed even for someone 7 months pregnant as I was at the time, and a very substantial and excellent breakfast, everything fresh and absolutely gorgeous!

The owners are so friendly, kind and thoughtful, giving excellent recommendations on restaurants, sights and things to do in Cornwall. You can tell that they love what they do, fantastic attention to every little detail, highly recommend it!

Truly a home from home. A friendly welcome with a homemade afternoon tea. Spotless and well thought out accommodation. Knowledgable hosts that could not do more to make our stay comfortable. A lovely breakfast with plenty of choice. This B&B can not be beaten. Looking forward to coming back next year!

Room Tip: Lovely views of the countryside from the rooms upstairs.
