We stayed for two days in Boswedden house. A very friendly and quiet place, located quite close to Cape Cornwall. The beds were not very comfortable unfortunately. That's why our rating is average; we didn't sleep very well. When this probleem is solved we will return someday. Thanks Thelma for your kind hospitality!

As soon as I arrived at Boswedden House I was greeted by Thelma with a welcome tray of tea and biscuits in the lovely lounge. Nigel popped in a little later to say hello. The bedroom was compact but perfectly adequate and clean. The indoor pool was a lovely bonus, as was the labyrinth. Breakfast was delicious. A wonderful stay.... More

Stayed at Boswedden House to attend training little did I know what a gem it was. The peace and tranquility has to be experienced to be believed. The rooms are clean and have lovely views of the cape cornwall some with sea views. Thelma and her team work hard to provide lovely meals and everyone is welcoming. Lots of therapies... More

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.
