The Old Rectory

The Old Rectory

Boscastle

The ‘magical setting’ in the Valency valley is the perfect spot for a whimsical tale. Thomas Hardy arrived here in 1870, to be met at the door by the rector’s sister-in-law, Emma Gifford, his future first wife. If it’s the romance of the story that draws guests to Sally and Chris Searle’s B&B, it’s the hospitality that inspires them to return.
