We did the same journey this summer - I can't help you with accommodation as we travelled from London to the IOS in one day and the return the same. The train station is approx 4 mins by car from the heliport (a very tiny cafe serving drinks and sandwiches during the day is at the heliport - the later in the day the less choices are available). There is a shuttle bus that runs between the train statin and the heliport. On our return journey the helicopter was delayed by 50 mins and although we had been advised that we should allow 1.5 hours between helicopter and train we managed to miss our train by seconds (the train was on the platform but the doors were locked) and had to wait for 2 hours for the next one. Penzance train station is small (4 platforms. I seem to remember that there are some B&B's just outside the station on the same road that the heliport is on (the main road into Penzance) but cannot help you with names. Have a great time in the IOS June

Accommodation

Susan I have just google mapped Penzance and if you put the satellite view on there are several B&B;s just outside the station, Whiteways, Honeydew and Cornerways - I am sure that Tripadvisor may be able to help you find the best one. As you will be without a car they are also in the on the edge of the (small towncentre) that is there so will give you some choices of eateries etc and if you want to stretch your legs somewhere to walk. The train runs along the coastal road and goes past the heliport on your arrival to Penzance.
