Boscastle is a spectacularly located fishing village and tourist attraction on the north coast of Cornwall, in the southwest of England. The oldest and most attractive parts of the village surround the cliffbound harbour, and they extend up the river valley. The more modern part of the village rises up the steep valley sides surrounding the harbour.
The main things to see in and around Boscastle are the village and the harbour, (especially at sunset) nestling in a spectacularly steep sided narrow valley, together with the surrounding cliffs and coastal scenery. Most of which is accessible via the Cornish Coastal Path:
