Cottages Boscastle and area

Boscastle is a photographers's delight. Although Boscastle proper with the old cottages and Inn are at the top of the hill, the Boscastle that visitors flock to is at the bottom of the hill, with a wlk to the harbour. 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. The heather covered sides of the valley snake inland to the pretty cottages.
