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....

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

This is a family room with all the accessories you... 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
