Well, here I am, back again :-). This seems to be getting a regular, every 6 months. The garden is full of birds, I arrived and was immediately given a pot of tea and delicious biscuits, checked the menu for the evening meal and am now ensconced in my very comfortable (luxurious even) en-suite bedroom. Free superfast broadband too! And...

We spent four nights in this beautiful B&B over the Bank Holiday weekend. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Home comforts include a kettle and selection of tea bags in the room. There's a guest fridge in the breakfast room, and a selection of maps that we were welcome to take with us on our walks (the maps, not...

Where to start? At the beginning, of course. We drove down a narrow lane to The Old Rectory, where we were greeted by Sally and the gorgeous dog Millie. Sally served us tea on the terrace and joined us, telling us about the history of the place and its close connections with Thomas Hardy. Hardy first met his wife Emma...

Tucked away in a truly peaceful and quiet woodland, The Old Rectory in St Juliot offers a magical atmosphere and excellent service. The spirit of the place is everywhere: in the names of the rooms, the pictures and other memorabilia on the walls and the rectory-like communal breakfast table. It was not very easy to access the place, although compared...

For the second year in a row we visited The old Rectory. Sally still keeps amazing me the way she runs this beautiful B&B. We stayed for 4 nights and 3 times we were lucky to be able to appreciate the cooking skills of daughter Anne. With the garden in full bloom it just is a lust to stroll around...

Very beautiful, peaceful location. The owners are very helpful, the room was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Evening meal by Anna also very nice. It's a little far from Boscastle, but if no-one is available to take you, it seemed easy to get a taxi.

Stayed a week in the suite and wanted to stay longer. Very friendly hosts, Sally and Chris, who treat you like friends. Breakfast first class with home and local produce with a good variety. Beautiful house and gardens with historical interest. Home from home experience and would definitely go again.

We returned and stayed two nights 4-5 June with our two little dogs. We had stayed here eleven years ago and always said we would again if in Cornwall.

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!
