Don't be discouraged by the title. It's true, we did catch colds but this was due to the weather, not Polgreen. We had an extra long weekend in St. Austell, choosing to stay at Polgreen, which is just outside the town, but convenient for both Eden Project and Heligan. These are both worth a visit, by the way. We had...

We can only really echo other reviewers - Polgreen is an excellent guest house with lovely rooms, friendly owners and great food. If you're looking to visit the Eden Project and explore the nearby coast then stay here, you won't regret it.

We enjoyed a three night stay at Polgreen Guesthouse in March 2010, our third stay at Polgreen. We were welcomed from the second we arrived and were made extremely comfortable throughout our stay.
