What a serendipitous find! Beyond an ordinary exterior that promises just another well placed house and shop frontage one finds a treasure trove of 72 Arts and Crafts stained glass panels, 6 of which are possibly the most stunning I have ever seen outside of an ecclesiastical building. The stained glass workshop my partner and I have promised ourselves is now a must but oh! to have the skills of the wonderful Pre-Raphaelite influences that inspired the hand of Ms.V.Whall. A must see visit if staying in Tintagel.

This 3.6 mile moderate walk follows part of the South West Coast Path from Boscastle along the cliffs bordering the ancient fields of Forrabury, before heading inland through Minster Wood,and then along the Valency Valley. In 2004 these steep-sided Valleys funnelled 440 million gallons of water through Boscastle village in 5 hours, causing devastating flooding.

We visited today as a family of 5. We paid £13 entry fee for 2 x adults and 3 x children (aged 12, 4 and 3).
What a surprise! The welcome was great. We were saluted as we entered the car park! The children loved it!! The volunteers were knowledgable and helpful. The museum was full of things that the children could touch as well as look at. We counted guns and animals on the way round too. We enjoyed a coffee and mid morning treat in the NAAFI popping our money in the honesty box. It was like stepping back in time! We will be back

We spent such an interesting afternoon at this lovely friendly museum after stumbling across it one wild and rainy day of our holiday. We were shown around the museum by a very interesting gentleman who recalled lots of stories about the artefacts. The two ladies at the entrance door were equally as helpful and friendly. We walked around with our two little dogs and there were a number of wheelchair visitors who were all made so welcome. The parking is free with no entrance charge just a donation. The museum is run entirely on donations and volunteers. We intend to return again next year.

I've visited here many times from holidays with parents when I was young to asking my wife to marry me at the end of the valley.
It's a beautiful walk through a narrow, rocky valley (the name is a clue) with some ruined buildings with interesting rock carvings (I want one of them as a tattoo).
Great walk, a bit short, no more than an hour round trip. Not good for less fit people.

A walk along the harbour paths to the entrance. The day had a howling gale and upon entering the rocks past the harbour entrance it was a great sight to see the waves crashing in. Felt quite safe and didn't find the rocks slippy. All depends on the footwear !

May Contain Nuts!!! no that's not the crowd participating in the walking tour of Doc Martin locations in Port Isaac, but the meeting point for the start of the tour. We arrived outside 'May Contain Nuts' at about 10.50am and waited for the arrival of our tour guide Mike Meakins. Mike has participated as an extra in the filming of both Doc Martin and Poldark, another series filmed in and around Port Isaac and Port Quin. It's an interesting walk around the village visiting the well known spots featured in the Doc Martin series, Louisa's house, the restaurant owned and run by the hapless Bert, the quaint cottage of Ruth Ellingham located just across from the infamous 'squeeze belly alley' used as an escape route by Smugglers escaping the clutches of the customs men a few centuries ago. The Pharmacy run by the bonkers Mrs Tishell played by the wonderful Selina Cadel. You'll see familiar sights patrolled by the local calamitous Pc Penhale and of course the iconic surgery which has featured in every episode of Doc Martin and the lane down which the local girls pass the doc and who Inveriably pass some caustic comment. Mike makes the tour interesting, sharing some of the in jokes that we the public would not normally be privy to and he explains some of the difficulties the film crew and cast have to overcome to bring this entertaining and truly humorous series to our screens. A good value walking tour at a tenner? you bet, I would say that a miander with Mike is not to be missed.

The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic houses one of the world's largest collections of items relating to witchcraft, the occult and magic. With over 3000 objects, a wise woman's cottage, a herb garden and a shrine it is a memorable place. It has been in the picturesque Cornish coastal village of Boscastle since 1961 and is one of Cornwall's most popular museums rated highly on TripAdvisor. The Museum intrigues visitors with its collections of charms, curses, herbs and healing and sea witchcraft. Some of our most popular items are magical tools such as glass knitting needles, objects which were used for scrying such as black mirrors, crystals and crystal balls and our collection of protection talismans made by soldiers in the trenches of World War One. The Museum also has an extensive library with other 7000 books and an archive of documents which can be viewed online or visited by appointment.
When in Boscastle visit the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic. It’s a truly magical experience and educational for those of an inquisitive nature.
The exhibits are intriguing and far fetching, explaining beliefs outside the normal. But since there is nothing to fear, why not enjoy looking around and exploring the wonders of Magic.
It’s a short walk down from the carpark to the Museum next to the National Trust centre. Nearby there are many place s to eat (including the NT cafe).
The museum allows (well behaved) dogs to wander around, but remember they can be more sensitive than humans, so keep an eye on them.
