Elmswood House


Elmswood House is a superb Victorian guest house retaining many of it's original features. It is situated in the historic village of Tywardreath just 4 miles from Fowey and the Eden Project, and close to Heligan, Mevagissey, local beaches, coastal walks and many popular attractions. This lovely rural village inspired Daphne du Maurier to feature Tywardreath in her classic novel "The House on the Strand" and it is only a few minutes walk from Elmswood to a couple of local pubs offering well kept beers and good food

We offer 6 beautifully appointed en-suite rooms including a king size double, twin and ground floor family rooms, which are all luxuriously appointed and feature quality bedding with Egyptian cotton sheets, freeview digital TV, tea & coffee making facilities and many extras.

Start the day perfectly with our mouthwatering quality breakfast cooked to order from our breakfast menu, using locally sourced produce, which includes cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, fruit juices, award winning sausages and bacon from our local Tywardreath Butcher, delicious local eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms and as much tea, coffee, toast, home made marmalade and preserves as you want!

Guests can relax in the garden view lounge, the TV lounge or the sunny gardens with views over the sweeping valley landscape. We are centrally located on the Cornish Riviera just 4 miles from Fowey and the Eden Project, with St. Austell, Mevagissey, Heligan’s gardens, local beaches and coastal path and many other popular attractions very close to hand. The village is served by the Fowey-St Austell bus service; and Par railway station on the London-Penzance and Aberdeen-Penzance lines is only 5 minutes walk. Newquay Airport is a 40 minute drive and for motorists we have a private car park.

Elmswood House is a family run guest house where you can be sure of a warm welcome and personal service
