Boscastle Village Cornwall

Boscastle WoodsProtected by timeless cliffs, the picturesque village of Boscastle nestles prettily in North Cornwall. Set against the backdrop of rugged rock and a refreshingly green countryside, Boscastle is a hidden harbour soothing song for the soul.

The Beach
The beach at Boscastle with its pale gold sand and delightful rock-pools is a secluded haven. The waters are mild around Boscastle and perfect for bathing. Lie on its sun-caressed soft sand...listen to the calls of the sea-gulls and lose yourself to the embracing tranquillity...
It is a pleasure very few beaches can offer...

Walking in the wilderness
You can explore and absorb the beauty of Boscastle by walking on its many trails. The tall craggy cliffs with its deep dark caves make for an interesting quest. The cliffs at Boscastle are a geological wonder, and you can observe the rare patters and textures on the rocks. Hike across the countryside and you're in for a rare treat. The wild woodlands with ancient trees and happy flowers is perfectly enchanting. And an occasional rabbit or deer may even join you in your enjoyment!

A walk to the 'Valency Valley' at Boscastle is like a walk back in time. The magic and romance of bygone eras flows to life. Take a picnic basket and enjoy the enchantment of the lovely landscape...
...its the same enchantment which helped Thomas Hardy woo his Emma...

Cliffs CornwallBoscastle Blowhole
Dating back to 1584, Boscastle's Elizabethan harbour boasts of an amazing blowhole. For nearly an hour before low-tide, and unto an hour after, you can experience this exhilarating phenomenon - A wild jet of ocean water fountains and froths to the harbour, all the while singing a strange arresting song...
Simply fascinating!

The Museum of Witchcraft
This forty-year old museum in Boscastle is home to "the world's largest collection of witchcraft artefacts and regalia". Their collection has various rare and mystical objects dealing with images of witchcraft, labyrinths, curses, working tools, divination, spell and charms, fortune-telling, persecution, satanism and devil worship, ritual magic and many other occult classifications. A wooden witch mirror, wax figures, bronze horn gods, phallic-shaped engraved tusks, mandrake roots, a sickle with black magic carvings, a cup and saucer set with zodiac symbols, a necklace of snake vertebrae, iron shackles, a pair of silver-plated chalices engraved with magical scripts, an ancient bronze cauldron and a stuffed toad are some of the bizarre and bewitching objects in their vast collection.

Local colour
The village of Boscastle stands in a deep valley. After being struck by the flash-floods in 2004, the locals have carefully rebuilt the village with love. Walking down the crooked lanes of the quaint hamlet is a warming experience. Charming cottages with higgledy-piggledy roofs sit in content and soak up the sun. Delightful little shops display their attractive wares. Do take a peek!
