A wonderful place to stay! We stayed in Emma's room, which is very comfortable with a beautiful view of the garden and a very modern bathroom. Sally and Chris were very welcoming. The breakfast was excellent every morning.

We had a wonderful visit at the Old Rectory. The rooms were spacious, showers new, and the heat was just right! Sally and Chris, our hosts, could not have been more gracious with terrific made to order breakfasts and a nice dinner where they joined us along with other guests. The place is steeped in history--Thomas Hardy actually lived and...

A perfect break - this was probably the best B&B we have ever stayed in. We were welcomed by Sally, and Millie, with a pot of tea in the residents lounge and that was just the start of perfect stay. We were there for three nights and thus had the opportunity to try six of the breakfasts - but we...

I stayed here with a friend and was not disappointed. It's a beautiful house set in it's own grounds and is steeped in history. The rooms are well appointed in a period sort of way and are clean and cosy (but not small). I stayed in the Stable room which is excellent and very roomy with it's own mini lounge....

I needed a weekend break and picked The Old Rectory at random. Though tucked out of the way I found it very easily with the directions given on the website. Really didn't know what to expect but was greeted by Sally, the owner, who proceeded to welcome me and take my bag. I was showed to my room which was...

We look to come to stay at The Old Rectory at least twice a year and this was our first visit of 2014. We stayed for nine nights this time and our visit was for the Boscastle Walking Week [a must for 2015 if you've not been before - 18th - 25th April - stick it in your diary]. We...

Welcoming hosts. Beautiful and quiet setting yet quite close to A39. We stayed for six nights and only met one car on the approach roads so it was easy to access, signposted from where your Sat Nav takes you. We really enjoyed our stay and the evening meals and the exceptional breakfasts. We had dinner there on five nights and...

My husband and I still wax lyrical about our stay at the Old Rectory a few months ago. It was such a wonderfully relaxing place to stay and the hosts made it such a great experience with their local knowledge and the stories they shared over dinner. Not only was breakfast delicious, but dinner (which was offered on several nights...

Since we're not English (or Cornish) we don't quit grasp the "thomas Hardy" thing. But we can understand now why he wrote some of his poems in that surroundings. The fact the even in modern society a family sets out on this journey to become totallt self supporting is amazing. We stayed for a whole week and found it always...

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
