We couldn't have received a better welcome. Lovely hosts and great breakfasts. Mushrooms tasty,beautifully cooked and plentiful. Bacon the best we have ever tasted. Two roomy lounges with lots of information for planning days out. The location is quiet and not far from anywhere you want to visit:it is always a relief to return after a hard days holiday making.... More

We have just returned to Surrey after a 3 night stay at the Elmswood House. To be honest, if you haven't been recommended anywhere to stay, then looking for accommodation in an unfamiliar place is highly daunting. So, the search began. We wanted somewhere that was going to be central to the location we were exploring, so somewhere near Fowey... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and even if I tried really hard I could not find one fault this excellent accommodation. We booked Elmswood House after viewing the Web site and seeing some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We do not usually book a guest house and tend to always choose hotels. We realise we might have been... More

We stayed for 3 nights in April/May in room #4. The room was bright, spacious and very clean although the furniture and decoration was dated and not to our taste but didn't show signs of wear and tear. We had a nice view of the church and valley which could be enjoyed from the 2 comfy chairs in our room.... More

This b and b deserves an extra star for having something you don't normally see these days - not only one guest lounge, but two! And they are both on the ground floor, with views of a charming garden and the hill beyond. This is so unusual and a real treat. The house itself is old, but very nicely brought... More

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay. We had the room facing the church, which gave a lovely view and did not hear the bells at all. The bed was huge and wonderfully comfortable! The breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of choice. Par beach is close by and worth a visit. The New Inn pub is a minutes... More

I stayed here for two nights in Feb 2015. The room was the superior kingsize ensuite and was very nice indeed. It wasn't cheap (£80 for two B&B) but well worth the money. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the outlook was lovely. The breakfast was enormous and I had to lie down afterwards for a little... More

We stayed here for 2 nights early Sept with friends & found it an ideal place to stay. The hosts were very friendly & helpful & the breakfasts were excellent. There is loads to do around this area as indicated in other posts (but be prepared for some very narrow lanes though !). There is a small supermarket at the... More

We recently spent two nights at Elmswood House, during our recent visit to Cornwall and must say that we couldn't find more welcoming hosts than Graham and Angela, who provided most helpful information on the surrounding area, a very comfortable and spotlessly clean, spacious front bedroom with excellent views of the village and countryside around. My husband and I had... More

I stayed for 2 nights with a friend in their twin room and it was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Breakfasts were excellent and freshly and well cooked. Altough a little off the beaten track, Elmswood House is very close to many attractions including the Eden Project, Lanhydrock House, Lost Gardens of Heligan and the beautiful Fowey and Mevagissey....
