We stayed at Elmswood for three nights and were very well looked after. The house is spotless and the proprietors very helpful.
Breakfast is plentiful with a good selection.
The room we had (4) was very well appointed with a nice view over the countryside. Elmswood has a couple of residents' lounges, one with an "honesty" bar.
We went by train and it was only ten minutes walk from Par Station.
There are good eating places within walking distance The Ship Inn (15 to 20 minutes) and The Royal Inn (10 to 15 Minutes) Our preference was the Royal Inn. A bit more upmarket than the Ship with enormous and beautifully cooked servings and delightful staff.
The Eden project is only a short taxi ride away (cost £7) and if you use A & J Private hire (01726 814892) they will collect you at a mutually convenient time.
A car in high season in Cornwall could be a disadvantage rather than a benefit and it is very easy and not too expensive to visit the surrounding country by train or bus particularly if you have a rail card. The young man who mans the ticket office in Par station is very helpful and a credit to his employers.
St Ives, Penzance Newquay etc are all within easy travelling distance.
