My partner and I have just returned from a short break to St Austell, where we stayed at this wonderful B&B.
We had a very warm welcome from the owners Greg and Lynda.
On arrival, Greg showed us around the fantastic house they have, showing us our lovely double bedroom (larger than many hotels we have stayed in and including tea and coffee making facilities and biscuits) and also showing us the guest bar, lounge and outside areas. The bar, lounge and outside areas are a great space for use by the guests and we enjoyed a drink on the deck on one particularly warm evening. Greg has a barbecue he is happy to fire up for you should you wish. There is an honesty bar should you decide to use it, where Greg just asks that you let him know what you have had so he can make a small charge. There is also a sauna for guests use, but we did not get a chance to use it. Maybe next time.
Greg brought us a cup of tea and a toasted teacake to our room, along with a map he had very helpfully prepared showing the local area and points of interest, restaurants, shops, etc.
We found ourselves visiting places we had not even heard of before (Fowey and Charlestown) on Greg's recommendations and they were all worth the visit. Greg's knowledge of the area was very helpful. Let him know where you are going each day and I am sure he will offer you the best advice on travel, parking, what to see, etc.
The bedroom was very well appointed and had one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. There was a lovely, modern en-suite and the whole accommodation was spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was lovely, with cereal, full English, toast, yoghurts, tea & coffee and juice. It filled us up until lunch-time.
We would definitely recommend this B&B for its warm welcome and excellent accommodation and will definitely be back when we next return to Cornwall.
Accommodation is about ten minutes walk or a two minute car drive to the centre and was a great central base for all we wanted to see in this area of Cornwall.
Thanks again Greg & Lynda (and two beautiful cats)
