We did a coastal walk from Boscastle today We could not fault the paths at all they have been well maintained My only quibble was us deciding to go fully coastal walk rather than the in land option in the windy conditions today

Really is a lovely walk on a sunny day along the river to the harbour. Great way to walk off lunch as well

A very pleasant little working fishing village. We often come here for a stroll around throughout the year as we live fairly close. Plenty of little shops to browse in with just about something for everything. Great choice of cafes and tearooms. Food also available...More

This is a lovely place to go for beautiful scenery and a lovely walk. Wouldn’t recommend on a wet day as can get slippery. Take plenty to drink too.
