The Wellington Hotel is one of North Cornwall’s oldest Coaching Inns, dating back to the 17th Century. It was originally known as “The Bos Castle Hotel”, but was renamed in memory of the Duke of Wellington following his death. Its Castilian tower, still seen as the main feature on the exterior of the hotel, was added and the hotel renamed The Wellington Hotel.
According to Peter Underwood, the hotel has a number of ghosts associated with it. These include a figure that could be “a coachman or stable lad”, a male that allegedly committed suicide here, a little old lady and that of a young girl. Presences have been felt in rooms.
