We, too, find it hard to understand the previous less-than-positive review. Our only regret about the Old Rectory is that we couldn't stay longer. Everything you could want in a bed and breakfast is here. Sally offered a warm welcome, but wasn't intrusive or fussy as some proprietors can be. The house and garden are delightful, the food--both Anna's dinner and the breakfast (eggs from their chickens, sausage and bacon from their pigs)--is amazing. We stayed in Emma's room and found it clean, well-equipped, quiet, and peaceful. Sally anticipated everything we could want--robes in the room, lavish tea/coffee tray, sewing kit in the drawer. Chris and Sally have put sustainable, environmentally friendly management and the traditional, homey B&B together in the perfect package. If you are looking for a retreat, a base for walking in the countryside, or a wonderful place to curl up with a book you won't go wrong with the Old Rectory.
- 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).
