We had a very enjoyable stay at Rosecraddoc Manor. The setting is beautiful - very peaceful and relaxing. The accommodation was adequate - very clean but in need of updating. The bathroom was very tired looking and the mattress and sofa have definitely seen better days. However, as the weather was glorious we spent most of our time outside so this was not a big issue - but, for the money, I would expect higher quality accommodation.
The Village Inn on the nearby Rosecraddoc holiday park serves good, simple food at reasonable prices. The staff here, and the manager of the estate, are very friendly and helpful.
Rosecraddoc is a good base for visiting a number of locations. The train to Looe, a pretty seaside town, is highly recommended. We also enjoyed the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lanhydrock but would not rush back to the Eden Project.
