The Old Parsonage

Boscastle, Cornwall
Bed & Breakfast

A stroll away from Boscastle harbour and the spectacular coastal path… a warm welcome and breakfast of champions awaits


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


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.

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.

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.
