Wellington Hotel. Boscastle

Wellington Hotel. Boscastle, Several ghosts are said to haunt this Hotel.

Overlooking the harbour in the Cornish fishing village of Boscastle, The Wellington Hotel is haunted by the ghosts of a man and young lady.

The Wellington Hotel 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.

The ghostly figure of a man, complete with frilly shirt and ponytail, has been seen disappearing though the wall near the Hotels reception room. The ghost of a young lady who committed suicide by leaping from a tower attached to the building has also been seen in the area.


Loves a good ghost story, especially whilst sat in front of an open log fire on a cold and dark winters night.

Got something to say? Go for it!
