Boscastle is a picturesque working harbour amongst a rocky entrance at the end of a long narrow valley.
This is a beautiful location with stone-built cottages, shops and tea-rooms but you never forget how wild this coast can actually be.
Much of the area is managed by the National Trust and plenty of options for some walks along the coast path with excellent views from the cliffs.
Why not check beaches nearby as we have 2 beaches around Boscastle, 215 beaches in Cornwall, or have a look at our list of Cornwall dog friendly beaches, or even our United Kingdom Blue Flag beach list.
