“A decent B&B with a fantastic owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

In short: great - if I am in Cornwall I will come again.

After a very difficult day of an 80 mile cycle trip, I was exhausted but I felt instantly welcome. I am glad I chose to come to Sedgemoor Heights.

The accommodation was fine in itself - very clean room, comfy bed, clean and functional bathroom and nicely chosen bits of decor.

However, when the owner is someone you would happily spend evenings down the pub with, you know you are onto a winner. Ray was polite, friendly and erudite. The best B&B owner I've had the pleasure of staying with. I would happily return for another visit if I was to be in that part of the world again.

Please do ask to listen to the record collection. Audiophiles will LOVE this place.

Obligatory criticism: I only got one slice of toast in the morning because the bread ran out when my cycling partner ate the rest. Breakfast was otherwise very good.

As for the need for matching towels - DILLIGAF? Give me a charming host any day.

Ticks all the important boxes - friendly owners, good room, excellent breakfast, hot shower, quiet and relaxed. Blue (the dog) is a definite plus for a dogophile like me. It is also very convenient as a base for most of Cornwall if you are on public transport.

It's a bit of a pity that it's let down by the town itself (but then, I remember St Austell before it was ruined by the big supermarkets)!

All in all, a good experience.

Room Tip: I'm sure Ray would give you the best room to meet your needs - for example, the Butlers Room was...

I travelled from London to St Austell, Cornwall recently to perform at the Eden Project Cafe, staying at the Sedgemoor Heights b&b. The Sedgemoor is wonderfully arranged with a sense of privacy and comfort. The staff are seasoned pros and genuinely interested in the experience of their guests. I had a wonderful time and would stay there again absolutely.

Room Tip: The double room is great. Wifi signal a little weak upstairs, but there is a good common area where...

Both myself and my staff (it's the same person) thank you for your enigmatic review. As I cannot publish your name, or the title of your latest cd you so kindly gave me, all I can say here is, "Many thanks, and may your glass necked guitar never break."
I apologise for any confusion caused by this review and its response.

SEDGEMOOR HEIGHTS B&B is good place to stay, we spent 3 nights there, at the day time we visited different places around Cornwall, Eden project is very close to this B&B. Host is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Rooms are clean, good size. Definitely would stay again.

We spent 3 days in this b&b when we visited Cornwall and used this accommodation as base camp for our tours. We liked the house, it has an atmosphere and we got great breakfasts from the owner of the house. The house has a dog, it is a very friendly pet, our children liked to play with it after the morning routine.

Room Tip: We used 2 rooms, the Nursery on the first floor and the downstair's room, maybe the Butler's...

This is a tastefully furnished B&B, five minutes from the town centre, with its own entrance and lobby at the rear of the main house, quiet and secluded, with a lovely little patio. The rooms are immaculately clean and the en suite bathroom facilities are better that those of many hotels, certainly a cut above the piddling showers of most B&Bs! Tea and coffee facilities in all rooms. Breakfast is served in the dining room of the main house and includes organic produce and fresh eggs from the hens you can hear clucking in the garden. You may ask for anything (within reason!)
Ray was extremely helpful and informative; by the way his list of 'things that could go wrong' is called 'Health and Safety Information' and could save your life, so shut up and listen!!!
Ray has a well-developed sense of humour; if you do not, please don't call him eccentric as you are merely revealing your own lack of sophistication.
I stayed for four nights and wish I could have stayed longer.
Excellent value for money and thanks Ray, I'll be back!

My husband, son and I had a fantastic time here. We though that the B&B was exceptionally clean (better than 5 stars we'd stayed in) and that the host, Ray was friendly helpful and accomodating and made us feel as though we were part of the family. The room was lovely for our little family and easily coped with all the baby clobber we have to take and came with it's own travel cot. It also was very peaceful and was not affected by any road or city noise. The tea andcoffee facilities were great and so was the TV - which is safley tucked away from little fingers. We chose the B&B as it is located not far from the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan (it also has a good public transport option) and this was a very easy commute. Would definitely stay again and have recommended the B&B tp family and friends. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Oh and the breakfast was FAB.

Thanks for the kind comments. Glad you enjoyed the room and your stay in the the Nursery. You might be interested to know we are in the process of "revamping" the room. [We have replaced the bed-side cabinets and the chest of drawers since your visit and it all looks much smarter; more improvements ongoing...]
