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...

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....

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...

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...

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.
