The cliffs of the North Cornwall coastline shelter this harbour town from the Atlantic rollers and the unique S shaped Elizabethan harbour is preserved by the National Trust. The small village is romantic and picturesque and was once home to writer Thomas Hardy.

The wonderful holiday cottages, tea rooms and traditional pubs in Boscastle make a day out here a real treat. The unusual Museum of Witchcraft adds an element of the occult and the National Trust trails; wooded valley walks and coast path trails offer scope for exploration in the fresh air.
