Welcome to Boscastle
Boscastle, village lies within the parish of Forrabury and Minster on the North Cornish Coast 14 miles south from Bude and 5 miles from Tintagel, a conservation area amongst some of the most beautiful countryside within the British Isles, and is one of the few remaining unspoilt harbour villages in Cornwall. Designated an Area of Outstanding beauty, the National Trust own and care for the beautiful medieval harbour and surrounding coastline.
An excellent base for touring the area, all of Cornwall or North Devon,
including moorlands, sheltered wooden valleys and coastal footpaths offering
magnificent views, are all on our doorstep.
The small harbour now hosts a number of little fishing boats but was once a hive of activity with trade taking place between Wales, Bristol and the south of England. Here too a lovely valley heads inland, a path follows a fast flowing burbling stream which leads to several hidden churches allowing you to discover the little known connection between North Cornwall and Thomas Hardy.
It should be a most interesting and entertaining evening.
As usual we meet from 7pm at Boscastle Village Hall, and will sit down for a meal at about 7.30.
Please bring food and drink to share.
