Perfect location for a quiet retreat, therapy, walking and classes, yoga, meditation. Cape Cornwall is simply stunning and it's a great place to explore the south west peninsula from. Lovely and peaceful.

Boswedden House is an oasis of peace. From the moment you step through the labyrinth gate and head for the entrance, a feeling of stillness and well being surrounds you. Each room is thoughtfully decorated, has beds made with spotless, white linen and window seats looking out onto the wild Cornish landscape. The food is plentiful, homemade from fresh, local... More

What a wonderful B&B. Such an amazing location. Just 10min walk from Cape Cornwall and about 20min walk to St. Just village if you keen to have a nice diner. We stayed in a room 1 which was really bright and spacious. Really big thanks to Nigel for such a good tips about Cornwall history.

I went to Bosweddon House with very specific needs and just 4 days to fulfil them. It was a Big Ask. Especially as I knew the basis needed to be rooted in relaxation, meditation and inspiration - never easy for a worrier like me. From the moment I arrived I knew I was in the right place. Cape Cornwall is... More

Lovely, comfortable, light room with fresh white bedding. Thelma, Nigel and their staff are helpful, friendly and the food is excellent. The house is a short walk down to the dramatic coast, and perfect for visiting West Cornwall.

Clean bedding daily, a lovely holiday treat. Stayed here to have treatment with Delphiris the woman who talks to dolphins. Husband enjoyed a good massage with Katy. Splendid views from room 1. Very good breakfast! Delightful friendly team. Thank you all.

We were staying in Cornwall and needed a couple of nights in a relaxing hotel near the cape of Cornwall. We saw this place on booking.com and saw that they had a lovely looking pool with a sauna. However when we then booked and paid for the initial payment we received an email to inform us that check in is... More

We spent one night at Boswedden House before flying from Lands End to St Mary's in the Isles of Scilly the following day. The house is in a lovely position, close to St Just, and the coast where there are wonderful walks. We had a very comfortable room, and as we had to leave early for our flight some delicious...

I was part of a weekend retreat at Boswedden House and loved the experience. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food was excellent and gluten-free diets catered for. Boswedden's position so close to Cape Cornwall and the coastal path meant it was easy to get out there into the landscape. Glorious! Then back to a swim and sauna. Perfect... More
