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....

Dy and I stayed with Graham and Angela early in July 2014.Our room was at the rear of the house overlooking the carpark. We had an enormous bed that was recommended by Angela.We have all seen those Lenny Henry adverts about a good nights sleep well....he hasn't stayed in that bed at Elmswood. We haven't slept so well in years.... More

I think this is the best place we have ever stayed in! Some places excel in different areas, but the Elmswood has it all! From the welcome upon our arrival to the delicious breakfasts, the beautiful rooms, and everything spotlessly clean. The hosts are so friendly and welcoming. Location is perfect and so quiet. The church chiming is wonderful to... More

We had to go down to Cornwall at very short notice as my father was seriously ill and in hospital in Truro. Angela & Graham were fantastic ... Because of the situation we didn't actually know how long we were going to stay and only let them know every morning if we needed a room. We were with them for... More

Lovely room with great view of church and rolling hills. Double glazing so also very quiet. The bed was very comfortable. Angela and Graham made us very welcome with a most appreciated cup of tea when we arrived after a 4 hour drive and the breakfasts were super. They recommended a good restaurant in Lostwithiel for our anniversay dinner and... More

We've stayed at Elmswood House a few times, travelling with both our family and with friends, always made to feel very much at home and well looked after. We've stayed in various rooms and always found them to be comfortable & absolutely spotless. Angela and Graham always provide a warm welcome and do a fantastic breakfast cooked to order.
