Cottages Boscastle and area

Boscastle fishing village and harbour is a favourite with photographers, a traditional and picturesque village and natural harbour with many thatched and white-washed cottages. Boscastle proper with its old cottages and Inns are at the top of the hill, the Boscastle that visitors flock to is at the bottom of the hill, with a walk to the harbour, set in a narrow ravine. The harbour entrance is little more than a cleft in the slate cliffs. The tiny pier dates from teh early 16th century and the entrance is so tortuous that rowing boats had to be used to haul boats into the harbour. Visit the harbourside Witches Museum. The heather covered sides of the valley snake inland to a few cafes and restaurants, interesting little handicraft shops and the pretty cottages.
