We stayed here as a family back in June and never got round to writing a review but have been away to Somerset last week and the places we stayed at we're not as good as Stowford so I felt compelled to write something. The owners are amazing and incredibly friendly. Very comfortable stay and breakfast was amazing. They even... More

Thank you so much Tallulah for your wonderful review, apologies for taking so long to respond! Many of our guests feel like friends by the time they leave and we're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We do advertise the fact that we only take one booking at a time so you would not have to share the bathroom... More

We stayed for 2 nights with our teenage kids and our little dog as part of our Cornwall trip. Claire and Brian are so welcoming, that you feel as if you are visiting friends. To say the place is spotless is an understatement! Claire is a talented cook. I know that B&B's knock out good breakfasts all over the place,... More

What appealed was the exclusive use so that we weren't sharing with other people and we had our own bathroom and toilet. The house is very nice and spacious and immaculately clean. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Claire and Brian were great hosts and our two night stay was really enjoyed by us all.

RosieCornwall, Owner at Stowford Guest House, responded to this review

It was lovely to meet your family and to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. We think the two rooms are ideal for families as they give mum and dad some privacy whilst they will still be safe in the knowledge that there are no other guests staying. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. 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
