Welcome to our hostel

Located 10 miles from St Austell on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, YHA Boswinger is perfectly located for garden-lovers with the Lost Gardens of Heligan just down the road and Eden Project 15 miles away, both accessible by local bus. We have the perfect family-friendly sandy beach at the bottom of our hill, and many more within walking distance. The South West Coast Path is on the doorstep., The hostel is an old farmhouse with a sunny courtyard and a small garden, in a quiet village by the sea. Home-cooked meals can be enjoyed in our beautiful courtyard or garden. Boswinger youth hostel is one of the oldest hostels in Cornwall and is perfect for quiet and relaxing breaks.

Super Einsatz der lokalen YHA Mitarbeiterin, die sogar nur zur Vertretung da war: durch private Gründe wollten wir kurzfristig einen Tag länger bleiben, obwohl wir in Mittelengland eine andere YHA gebucht hatten. Trotz kurzfristiger Umbuchung mussten wir dank Ihres Einsatzes keine Stornierungskosten bezahlen - vielen Dank. Die Lage der YHA ist einfach großartig, wenn man keinen Trubel mag.
