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... More

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

What a fantastic place to stay...great location and wonderful helpful staff. Food was great and cake delicious! Great place to relax and it was so good to have the opportunity to choose between a wide variety of therapies and relaxation sessions plus the use of the pool and sauna. I shall be back. Highly recommend.

I love this unspoilt part of Cornwall - beautiful scenery and in effect an open air museum with so much archaeology. Boswedden House is the ideal place to stay. Warm and welcoming with a pool and sauna and no TV to waste time on scrolling aimlessly through the channels. Read, walk, swim and enjoy the generous cooked breakfast with superb... More

My Mum stayed at Boswedden for 5 nights in January whilst I moved us into our new home in St Just. Mum was well looked after and had a lovely room overlooking the gardens. The bed was as good as her own, excellent and Mum needs a good mattress etc due to a hip replacement. The food was perfect for... More
