About
Description
Offering private rooms (2-bed, 4-bed, 5-bed or 6-bed) and single-sex shared dormitories, YHA Boswinger is part of the YHA England and Wales hostelling chain.Take advantage of our great self-catering More kitchen, communal lounge-dining areas and the lovely courtyard and lawn, complete with tables, picnic benches and barbeque area. Located in the small hamlet of Boswinger, we are 15 miles from Eden Project, 5 miles from Lost Garden of Heligan, 3 miles from the picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey and 10 minutes walk from a sandy family-friendly beach. The South-West coastpath is on our doorstep and there are many short and long walks from the hostel - ask at Reception or hire an OS map.Arriving on public transport? Take the 471 First Bus outside St Austell train station and get off at Gorran Churchtown for an easy 1 mile walk to the hostel. Otherwise consider booking a spot on the Gorran Community bus, running weekdays. Less
