Boscastle is a beautiful unspoiled coastal village located in North Cornwall on the coast north from Tintagel. Sturdy cottages cling to the hillside above the tiny rock-enclosed harbor at this National Trust village. The river Valency runs down the middle of the main street to the fishing harbor which is sheltered from the sea by high slate cliffs. Once busy with sailing ships loading slate from local mines, it still provides a refuge from the stormy seas along the treacherous rocky coast.
