Based in Boscastle

After 5 nights at Chitterne it was time to pack up and head further south.  Once again, we are spending a few days in one place.  This time we are based in Boscastle on the north-west coast of Cornwall.  This picturesque village straggles down the steep cliffs to a tiny harbour.

We walked down to the harbour and then headed up the walkway towards the outer headland visible in the centre of the above photograph.

Here is the view from about halfway along the path.

Once we reached the top there were amazing views in both directions.

After lunch we drove a bit further down the coast to Port Isaac.  It is really just another charming Cornish fishing village but has achieved a degree of notoriety as the fictional village of Port Wenn, location for the television series, Doc Martin.

No visit would be complete without a view of the Doc’s house.

Some of the coastline could really convince you that the smugglers are just around the next headland.
