This was our second visit and from the time that we entered over the cattle grid and saw the enchanting garden and house it was breathtaking. We were immediately greeted by Sally and Milly and invited into the conservatory for tea coffee and home made biscuits. We spent 8 days in the Stables which is ideal for us with our...

This was our 3rd stay,it was as wonderful as the first. The greeting from Sally,Chris and Anna felt as though you were being welcomed by long lost friends. Tea,home made shortbread and warm conversation to begin our stay,what more could you ask for! We have stayed in Emma's room and the Rector's room,both are very comfortable, the furnishings make it...

I stayed here for two wonderful nights. The hosts were charm personified, more like friends than never-met-before proprietors. The old rectory is in a magical setting, looking very much as it must have in Thomas Hardy's day. He stayed here while engaged in renovating the nearby St Juliot's church, a gem in its own right. In fact I slept in...

My husband and I just returned from a 3-day sojourn to Cornwall. We couldn't be more pleased with our 2-night stay at The Old Rectory. The rector's room was spacious and had a very comfortable king-size bed, handsome antique furnishings, plus 2 sitting chairs and a modern bath. The view of the garden and rolling hills was stupendous. The isolated...

We booked a few days away to go walking with our dog. On arrival we were met by Sally who was very welcoming, we were shown to our room which had a fire lit and coffee and homemade biscuits were offer. The house was beautiful and our room was very well equipped with a lovely wood burner. Breakfast was very...

A perfect retreat for a long weekend, off the beaten track, walks from the door and well located for access to town & coastal walks Made to feel very welcome, great home cooked breakfast with fresh produce mainly from the garden (Which you are free to wander round with good views over the countryside), lovely lounge to relax on a...

We booked a few days getaway at half term with the children and our ageing dog. Sally couldn't have struck a better balance between making us enormously welcome and yet not intruding. The house and rooms were so comfortable and a perfect base for local adventures. The breakfasts and evening meals were absolutely delicious - not having to go in...

We spent the weekend in the converted stables and were amazed at every attention to detail that had been carefully thought out to make every part of our stay the most enjoyable. It would be too long a list to state all the amazing things about this B&B, but we thouroughly and genuinely highly recommend this beautiful place.

We, too, find it hard to understand the previous less-than-positive review. Our only regret about the Old Rectory is that we couldn't stay longer. Everything you could want in a bed and breakfast is here. Sally offered a warm welcome, but wasn't intrusive or fussy as some proprietors can be. The house and garden are delightful, the food--both Anna's dinner...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Rectory is in a quiet and secluded area offering four luxurious en-suite rooms in a historic house with Thomas Hardy connections close to the picturesque village of Boscastle. We are surrounded by 3 acres of our mature gardens including a productive walled Victorian kitchen garden, producing fruit and vegetables for breakfast and evening meals (by arrangement). Guests can enjoy our viewing deck over looking the sea and Valency Valley. Hardy wrote he left with "Magic in his eyes" and we hope you will do the same! Dog allowed in The Old Stable Room only. ... more   less
