On a recent trip to Cornwall we were spoilt for choice with places to visit. We chose Boscastle as one and we weren't disappointed. A lovely little village nestled around a harbour. Accessible walks along harbour walls or a moderate headland walk up to coast...More

Quaint little harbour. Nice walk on a beautiful day, stunning views and plenty of ice-cream on offer when you get back.
