A very nice B&B. We booked here after reading the positive reviews on Trip advisor and were not disapointed. It is clean, comfortable and the owners are two of the friendliest people you could hope to meet. On arrival we received some lovely scones, tea etc. The room was small, but adequate, clean, and came with en suite bathroom. The breakfast was great and one of the largest breakfasts I have ever eaten.
The only downside is the location. St Austell is very handy for the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, but the centre of St Austell is a bit of a dump. There was nowhere within walking distance that I would recommend eating in, the best place we found was a Wetherspoons. But don't let that put you off, there are plenty of nice places within 2-3 miles. The second night we drove down to Charlestown and found a host of nice rstaurants/bistros down by the harbour.
