After a morning spent at the campsite, we walked along the coast path to the quaint harbour town of Boscastle. The walk is about 5 miles in total and very scenic following the rugged Cornish coastline, a little bit undulating but not too difficult.
On the way, we stopped for lunch where there happened to be a number of Shetland ponies roaming free and wanting us to share our lunch with them!
In 2004 Boscastle was devastated by one of Britain’s largest-ever flash floods, which carried away cars, bridges and buildings. The village has since been rebuilt and it is difficult to find any evidence of the devestation caused. There are some cottages with very narrow front doors, how they get their furniture in and out is a mystery!
We left Boscastle via the high road lending us suburb views back to the village and the harbour below.
