Local Villages and Towns:

Even after the devasting flood of August 2004, there is something for everyone, magnificent cliffs and scenery, rare seabirds, a beautiful functional Elizabethan harbour. The chance to take fishing trips, the unique Boscastle Pottery, a gentle stream with ducks bobbing in it. Historic old Cornish Cottages with sagging roofs, the Boscastle Blowhole - an astonishing feature that emits a loud booming noise, and sends a spray of water across the harbour.
Wonderful pubs full of character, some with live music in the bar on certain evenings, an abundance of eating-places, to suit every pocket. The medieval 'stitches' near Forrabury Church, a relic of times past, the newly opened Visitor Center with lots more information!

Tintagel - 6 miles
Many like to believe that this was the birthplace of the legendary King Arthur, or even the site of Camelot, the mythical headquarters of the Knights of the Round Table. The Castle ruins that can be seen today date from the twelfth Century. Whatever your views of this magnificent place, the steep scramble down the cliff and onto the Castle Island will leave you feeling exhilarated.
Also worth a visit, 'King Arthur's Hall' a magnificent hall with over 70 stained glass windows, and a fine display of stone. In the centre of the village is the picturesque and much photographed Old Post Office, a small 17th century slate manor house that was converted to a Post Office in the 19th century. The Parish Church set on the windswept cliffs is Norman in origin and retains much of its original fabric, including the font, windows and some walls.

Bude - 13 miles
A thriving seaside town with two beaches, and for those who like to give the beach a miss, you have the Canal to walk along side. There is an interesting museum and a wide range of shops. The Rebel cinema is only 9 miles from here.

Wadebridge - 15 miles
With its new Bypass this has become a rejuvenated town. You can hire a bike and cycle to Padstow along the Camel trail (A disused railway track) and in the opposite direction to the foot hills of Bodmin Moor. Wadebridge has a cinema and many small delightful shops.

Port Isaac - 15 miles
Enjoy the fabulous coastal road to Port Isaac, a traditional fishing village that has recently found fame through the TV drama series 'Doc Martin' and the singing group 'Fisherman's Friends', who often sing down by the sea during the summer.
