Boscastle
Boscastle is a seaport with an innate harbor that is located on a remarkably gorgeous stretch of shoreline. It is only five miles north of Tintagel and was rebuilt after a devastating flood in 2004. Boscastle is home to the legendary Witchcraft Museum, which presents a morbid aspect of Cornwall's dark side. The tiny harbor has many small fishing boats and a path winds alongside a strong current stream that leads to the discovery of a number of concealed churches.
