Overview
More
This 3.6 mile moderate walk follows part of the South West Coast Path from Boscastle along the cliffs bordering the ancient fields of Forrabury, before heading inland through Minster Wood,and then along the Valency Valley. In 2004 these steep-sided valleys funnelled 440 million gallons of water through Boscastle village in 5 hours, causing devastating flooding.

Absolutely beautiful!! Would recommend a stroll up to the harbour where the river meets the sea and look back for some lovely views! Especially in the sun :)

Walking from Tintagel to Boscastle along the coast path was a great day, with only a few steep ups and downs. Boscastle is always worth a visit, even for an hour or so to wander around the village!

Have visited this area several times and highly recommend it. Lovely little buildings and nice pubs and craft shops. Poured with rain last time but still a good trip

An absolutely stunning walk with amazing views. Wear sturdy walking boots as it does take you along some cliff edges (no barriers) and along some rocky paths. Would certainly visit again.

Highly recommend a visit to this pretty little village and harbour. National Trust shop, cafe, pubs, galleries, museum of witch craft, and above all some of the best walks in Cornwall

Nice little walk around the village towards the harbour. Paid a little visit to the witch craft museum very interesting worth a visit and a nice coffee stop off at the national trust cafe. Lots of places to eat and drink. Recommend wearing suitable footwear...More

Spite mixed showers, my students and I had a great time exploring and learning the history. From witchcraft to the floods. Great time with great people!

The walks along this coastal path are amazing. Wise to wear sensible footwear like trainers/walking shoes as ground can be uneven. Sime steps are steep.

Did the coast path walk from bossiney to Boscastle and back! Not a walk for the faint hearted but really is worth the effort!
