    Overlooking the harbour in the Cornish fishing village of Boscastle and surrounded by the beautiful North Cornwall coastline, the Wellington Hotel has been providing a warm welcome to its guests for many years. It is one of Cornwall s oldest Coaching Inns and dates back to the 16th Century. Originally known as the Bos Castle Hotel, the Hotel was renamed after the death of the Iron Duke, the Duke Of Wellington. Past guests have included royalty and celebrities such as King Edward VII, Sir Henry Irving, Guy Gibson and Thomas Hardy. The Wellington has a long history of offering fine accommodation, food and drink. Our 14 bedrooms are traditional yet equipped to meet the needs of the modern world. In the morning, you can wake up to a leisurely Cornish breakfast before a refreshing walk through the harbour and along the coastal cliff path. You can enjoy home cooked food, Cornish real ales or a glass of wine in the Long Bar, while relaxing next to the open fire. You can take afternoon tea or just unwind with a good book in our Lounge. In the evening, our restaurant, made famous following its appearance on Changing Rooms, offers gourmet dining and fine wines. Everyone is welcome at The Wellington whether you stay at the hotel or just come for lunch or dinner in our bar or restaurant.
