ABOUT THE VENUE:
The Wellington Hotel dates back to the 16th Century as a coaching inn and parts of the hotel date back 300 years. It was extended in the 1860s and it was originally called “Bos Castle” Hotel but it was renamed the Wellington in 1852, after the late Duke of Wellington.
A fantastic location in terms of both setting and reputation, The Wellington Hotel delivers on both fronts! The village and harbour of Boscastle are stunning regardless of the weather; whilst the hotel itself is furnished to a very high standard and the food is truly outstanding!
A number of famous people have stayed at the hotel, including Edward VII, the novelist Thomas Hardy and Sir Henry Irving, the first actor to be knighted.
This is a
fantastic opportunity to investigate one of Cornwall’s most famously haunted
hotels as seen on Most Haunted and other TV programmes.
As for the hotel's paranormal reputation, well, it has quite a reputation and has appeared in numerous publications. Also, we certainly weren't disappointed on our last visits when several of the team experienced an array of phenomena.
