Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

A facinating place to walk round, with wonderful views. The sort of place that is worth a repeat visit.

What a lovely place to stay ! Lovely walks around the harbour and shops as well as options to walk the coastal path in both directions and walk up alongside the river. Some interesting shops there and plenty of cafes/pubs/tea rooms to get refreshments. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. A perfect place to visit especially if you like good scenery and walks.

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

We walked up to the watch tower and around the cliff edge there and were afforded the most spectacular views. Steep climb and sturdy walking shoes needed but well worth the climb.
