Did part of the walk today from Boscastle and have to say loved it. The views are stunning and you could easily spend hours just taking in the views. Walking conditions were very good and not difficult.

Do visit the lovely harbour and great pubs and restaurants. Walking is strenuous, but the views are amazing in good weather. We hope to return.

We visited here today, it was quite a mild afternoon. Lovely quaint atmosphere, quite a few shops. The cliff walk is steep so we would recommend good walking shoes, we just pottered around for a few hours. Very nice.
