The Experience

On the southern fringe of Boscastle lies this handsome Georgian parsonage, a grand base for exploring the Cornish coast.

Behind the picture-perfect exterior find elegant, light-filled spaces and four big, bright, modern bedrooms. After a restful sleep take a seat at the convivial table in the pine-floored dining room. This is a breakfast well worth waking up for. Jon and Delyth are big foodies and like to show off local produce, so along with their homemade bread it’s the perfect fuel for your seaside adventures.

Hikers can stride out onto a spectacular stretch of the South West Coast path, boat spotters can wander down to Boscastle harbour, and the more laid back may relax with an afternoon tea watching the Cornish world go by.

We had a very pleasant stay with John and Delyth, who were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the breakfasts first rate. Even cake daily to have with our tea when we got back to base after a day out. Local produce used and Delyth bakes bread daily and cakes, too. I'm a great lover of porridge and this was done very imaginatively - a little different every day. So Maggie and we have no hesitation in recommending the Old Parsonage. We hope to pay a visit again in the not too distant future. Evening meals? Try the Napoleon Inn.

We always go to Sawdays' B&Bs because we know they will be good. However, this one was exceptional. We loved everything about it - nothing was too much trouble for our lovely hosts.

Mary, East Grinstead

A wonderful stay, delicious breakfasts with home made bread and different daily specials each morning. Wonderful home made cake was left in our room every afternoon and was really welcome when we returned from our walks. The room was large with a great comfy bed. Would certainly recommend a stay here and will definitely return.

The neighbourhood

The Old Parsonage is a short walk to Boscastle harbour and the South West Coastal Path is a five-minute stroll across the Forrabury stiches. The local pub, The Napoleon, serves great food and lots of other cafes, pubs and restaurants can be reached on foot. The Museum of Witchcraft, Willapark and the famous Boscastle Blowhole are also well worth a visit. Charming Boscastle and the surrounding coast are popular with walkers, offering spectacular views and dramatic landscapes.

Jon & Delyth Ward

Jon and Delyth started doing B&B in 2017 after falling for the charms of the Old Parsonage. Keen walkers, they spend lots of time on the South West Coastal Path and love sharing this passion with their guests.
