There’s more to Boscastle than a picturesque natural harbour and village.
The Elizabethan quay sits in an impressive amphitheatre of steep cliffs and is home to quaint stone-built cottages, shops and tea-rooms.
Much of the land in and around Boscastle is owned by the Trust. Venture beyond the picture-postcard harbour and a cliff path takes you to the Willapark headland and an intriguing ex-folly, now used as a Coastwatch lookout.
Nearby walks around Forrabury Stitches offer a rare glimpse at a surviving farmed landscape showing ancient celtic strip fields. If you wander further afield, you’ll discover the half-forgotten churches of Minster and St Juliots – once made famous by Thomas Hardy.
This is what the National trust website has to say about the accessibility of Boscastle and Boscastle Harbour:
- Disabled parking and facilities in main car park (Non NT)
- Level tarmac riverside roads in harbour area
- Level access to National Trust café/shop/Visitor Centre
