What a lovely place to stay with two very good hosts, Claire and Brian. The facilities were great and the breakfasts were scrumy and kept us going all day! Claie and Brian made us feel so comfortable and our room was lovely with beautiful views. The guest house is very accessible to the local facilities and only a short drive...

We've just spent 3 nights at Stowford Guest House and really enjoyed our stay. We had our pick from two lovely rooms as Claire only accommodates one group at a time which means you have your own private bath room across the landing (robes were provided). The view is fantastic. The house is lovely and well decorated - you really...

Very welcoming throughout the whole weekend that we stayed, very helpful, very attentive, very organised and even dropped us of at the train station. We stayed in the family room which had a double and a single bed which were both very comfortable also a tv and wi-fi. The view from the bedroom topped it off nicely. Facilities were very...

This was a really lovely place to stay in St Austell, and Claire went above and beyond the call of duty in making our stay an enjoyable one. Stowford is a beautiful house near the centre of town (but still seconds away from the rolling hills and country lanes), with smartly furnished rooms that have a grand views over the...

The friendly welcome at Stowford Guest House just makes the stay in Cornwall a happy one (even though it rained). The bedroom had been redecorated and refurbished to a high standard. Tea & coffee making facilities available in the room. The view from the window is gorgeous. Claire and Brian make your stay really special. Lovely breakfast, good choices of...

I just wanted to leave a message for other users about this wonderful guest house. This is the second time that we stayed with Claire and Brian and they were just as hospitable and welcoming as the first time. The rooms were clean and the breakfasts were still as spectacular. Claire especially was a wonderful host and helped us to...

We spent an excellent three days here in June. Claire and Brian couldn't have been more welcoming with some good hints as to where to eat in the evening. Decent sized room, comfortable bed, superb breakfasts, ample parking, easy to find and ideally located for Eden Project, Helegan and Cornish coast. Much better than a B&B in a seaside village...

A lovely house and friendly hosts who couldn't do enough for you. The views from the room were beautiful and the countryside is just down the road. A good base for visits to Heligan and Eden. No need for lunch after Claire's superb breakfasts. Altogether a very enjoyable stay.

We have just had a wonderful weekend in Cornwall staying at the Stowford Guest House in St Austell. Great hospitality in a lovely 1930's house with the most marvellous breakfasts, we were extremely well looked after.

On our holiday to Cornwall we wanted to visit the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and decided to book the Stowford after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed, it was the ideal location for the E.P & the LGH, Padstow, St Ives, Fowey and Charlestown are also within easy reach and well worth a...
