The Old Rectory offers luxury Bed & Breakfast in a historic house.

Situated near Boscastle on the beautiful North Cornish Coast.

Within an hours drive of the M5 at Exeter.

An ideal base to visit Cornwall's Eden Project, Lanhydrock House, a variety of Cornish gardens, unspoilt beaches and many other Cornish treasures.

Our house is surrounded by three acres of beautiful mature south facing gardens including a productive Victorian walled garden.

Thomas Hardy stayed here as a young architect and met and fell in love with Emma Lavinia Gifford. The romance led to the novel "A Pair of Blue Eyes", and to some of his finest poetry.

Guests are welcome to enjoy a drink in the guests own sitting room, or on our viewing deck over looking the sea and the Valency valley.

We are also able to serve evening meals by arrangement in our newly rebuilt conservatory overlooking the garden.

All the produce we use is either from the garden or sourced locally and we use Fair Trade products where possible.

Come and stay as our guests and enjoy a brush with history.

We are a non smoking establishment.

No pets in the house, but one well behaved dog in the Old Stable.

  • A quite secluded location close to Boscastle.
  • 3 acre mature garden with a walled kitchen garden
