Area Overview

The village of Boscastle is nestled on the North Cornish Coast between the parishes of Forrabury and Minster, 14 miles south from Bude. It is a conservation area set amongst some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside. The National Trust have designated it as an area of outstanding beauty, and continue to care for its beautiful, small medieval harbour, which houses a number of small fishing boats, and the surrounding coastline.

A picturesque valley heads inland via a path that follows a fast flowing stream, and there are several churches where you can discover the village’s connection with the famous writer Thomas Hardy. You’ll also find enjoyable walks along coastal footpaths, moorlands and sheltered wooded valleys, that all provide magnificent views of the local area and beyond. Bocastle is an excellent base from which to tour the local area, whilst all of Cornwall and North Devon are within easy reach.
