Claire and Brian have the balance of friendliness and privacy just right. It's good to know that the rooms are only let to one party at a time, so you don't have to share the bathroom or breakfast table with other guests.The rooms are very clean, comfortable and spacious, with lovely views and the breakfast is plentiful and delicious.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to Claire and Brian. We rang on the off chance at 4.30pm and luckily for us (due to cancellations) - both their lovely rooms were free and we turned up at 7pm that same day. We had a fab time - the rooms are lovely - the views are lovely - the hospitality was... More

A trip to Cornwall wouldn't be complete without a stay at Stowford Guest House. We love to visit Claire and Brian's lovely home. Visitors get a warm, friendly welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Stowford is so convenient for St Austell town centre, so you can leave the car and walk to the pub. I love the view from... More

We, two students, stayed at Stowfords Guest house for one night and it imediately felt like home thanks to Claires (the owner) friendly and warm-hearted welcome. After the night in the comfty bed in a pretty room with a breathtaking view on the countryside we had a delicious english breakfast. In the breakfast room, with a nice view as well,... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Stowford Guest House and are already missing it. We struggled to find a good value B&B in the area that would accept children (we have a one year old toddler), however, not only were Claire and Brian happy for a child to stay, they welcomed him with open arms.

Thank you so much for the great review. Your little boy was lovely and it was a pleasure to have you all stay at our guest house. As you said, we welcome families and with the knowledge that we only take one booking at a time, we think it makes it more relaxing for mum and dad, particularly if they... More

Claire and Brian Waters are the ideal hosts. They greeted us at the door with big smiles. Showing us our rooms was next on the agenda. They have only two guest rooms and let them to only one party at a time. In addition to my husband and me our party included our daughter and her boyfriend. We took over... More

We have stayed with Claire and Brian many times and it is always a great pleasure. The room has been upgraded and is so comfortable - just like home. The breakfast is lovely, Claire makes the best scrambled eggs! The "full English" will keep you going all day long. There is always a good choice of cereals, fruit and yogurt... More

From the moment I met Caire and Brian I was made to feel very welcome, I stayed here for 2 nights as it was a central location to tour Cornwall and as an added bonus saw some amazing places I would not have seen if it wasn't for their "local" knowledge of the area. The room and ALL the facilities... More
