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.

Boscastle Walking week
The Walking Week 2015 will be from Saturday 18th April to Saturday 25th April. From the very best of Britain’s coastline to wonderful walks amid woods and streams, it’s all on offer during Boscastle’s increasingly popular Walking Week. This year sees an extended range of walks and activities for you to pick and mix from. We aim to have something for all ages and abilities. You could join one of our experienced and informed local guides on a ramble to waterfalls or steep climbs to Cornwall’s highest coastal cliff top, or meander along the country lanes and pathways that would have been familiar to the writer Thomas Hardy, whose life-changing visit to Boscastle produced poetry regarded by many as amongst the finest in the English language. As well as walking, a range of events including Cream Teas and special ‘Meal deals’ will be available. The Festival Dinner will again be held on the Thursday with limited places available on a first come first served basis. More information on all the walks and the week’s activities and accommodation can be found on the Chamber of Trade and Commerce
