Boscastle fishing village has to be one of the cutest villages I’ve been to, and very much the closest I’ve come to a real life ‘Thomas Kinkade’ scene.
Many of Thomas Kinkade’s pictures are like snapshots from a fairytale.
You’d be forgiven for thinking you were walking through the set of a film and it’s easy to see why so many authors have found inspiration from Boscastle’s quaint scenery.
The fishing industry isn’t as busy as it used to be due to the introduction of a railway system in late 1800s – which means it now serves more as a place to admire and enjoy.
Walking in Boscastle fishing village
- Go walking and enjoy the coastal cliff lined views. You can walk a straight coastal route from Boscastle to neighbouring Tintagel
- Show off your dog – in Cornwall, everyone seems to have a dog, and in Boscastle village it looked like an outdoor Crufts gathering as people gathered proudly with their pooches
The great flood
The village flooded again in 2017, but not as severely as in 2004.
This visit took place in July, though I imagine each season brings equally stunning views and moods of Boscastle.
