- Although Boscastle suffered serious flooding, the local people bravely gathered together and by the
following season this pretty harbour with its picturesque buildings, craft shops, pubs and tea rooms had turned itself around ready for the many tourists who flock to visit.

"Olde Worlde" local pubs, Napoleon and Cob Webs, full of
charm and friendly staff to greet you.

particular long stretch of coast for boats to shelter during storms.
The local seal population suffered in the past being hunted, but this industry is now under control.
