Boscastle lies on the North Cornish Coast 14 miles south from Bude and just 5 miles from Tintagel.
Boscastle has been designated an Area of Outstanding beauty and the National Trust own and care for the beautiful medieval harbour and surrounding coastline.
It is an excellent base for touring the area, all of Cornwall or North Devon, including moorlands, sheltered wooden valleys and coastal footpaths offering magnificent views, are all on the doorstep of Boscastle. The small harbour hosts a number of little fishing boats but was once a hive of activity with trade taking place between Wales, Bristol and the south of England.

This beautiful location has also been used for filming many productions such as Doc Martin and Saving Grace.
