The coastal walk is spectacular and generally well maintained. A good tip is to get the bus to Crackington Haven and walk back, only 7 miles but has some steep climbs and descents. The last steps are only about a 150ft but on top of...More

Many may not agree with my opinion or view of Boscastle, but then that is the beauty of this forum, we tell it as we see it individually. Boscastle was devastated by a flash flood in 2004 and for me it is a pity it...More

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 :)

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

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
