Boscastle - rugged coast, tranquil valley

This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.

A circular walk starting from the lovely village of Boscastle. We view the harbour as we climb up to the coast path on the clifftops for spectacular views of the North Cornwall coast. After a few kilometres we head inland across farmland and country lanes to reach the tranquil Valency Valley, along which we walk along in woodland to return to our transport.

PLEASE NOTE Despite the devastating flash floods experienced in Boscastle during August 2004 this walk guide is still accurate. There has been a great amount of repair work done to Boscastle, and the village is practically back to normal. The car park has been completely rebuilt and the exit from the valley is through the car park - or there is a direct path to the road about 100m from the car park entrance.
