An absolutely amazing B&B. A very warm welcome on arrival. We could not fault the rooms in anyway at all with everything needed for our stay. And breakfast in the morning was the best ever . And a walk round the garden is a must with stunning views.

Didn't know what to expect when we booked this accommodation and were told we were staying in the room Thomas Hardy once stayed in. It's a little off the beaten track but in a beautiful setting surrounded by 3 acres of garden which supplies fresh fruit, eggs, and vegetables for the guests The house has its own history but also...

I have never written a review before but we was so blown away by our stay at The Old Rectory I had to post one. I booked 2 nights here for myself and my partner for a little bank holiday break.

Lovely old house well away from the village with lovely not so old hosts, very good food, we had dinner in the first night and then tried several local pubs none of which could come close to matching their food much of which is home grown. Breakfasts also excellent. Would thoughly recommend .

My partner and I stayed here in late May for my birthday and we can honestly say it was the nicest B&B we have ever stayed in. We stayed in the The Old Stables purposely so we could bring our dog. The room and bathroom was spacious, cozy and very comfortable. We essentially had our own private patio which in... More

Went away for a long weekend escape. We were greeted by the friendliest of owners, offered a pot of tea after settling into our bedroom. It is placed Idyllically near many lovely walks. One to nearby Boscastle. As it is fairly far from many eateries they serve most days a set two course evening meal. Fabulous and very tasty for... More

Tucked away, with old world charm, half expected miss marple to be sitting in the garden, The whole place was spotlessly clean and comfy. Breakfast was of a good standard, Pleasant hosts, very difficult to find on map & don't belive your sat nav.

We stayed in this very nice B&B for a few days recently and were welcomed with tea and biscuits by Sally, the owner and later met Chris, her husband, and Anna, her daughter.

The owners ran the place as a business, they are very good at self sustainability and it is very charming to see people at home as small holders. My only gripe was a lack of connectedness from the owners who were (understandably) also organising a daughters wedding and focusing on the Literary Values of the Property. That of course is...

Thank you for your review. We try and welcome our guests and take the time to have tea and biscuits with them and show them the house and garden so they can use it fully while they are here.

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
