Walk - Boscastle & Pentargon Waterfall
1.7 miles (2.7 km)
Boscastle Harbour - PL35 0HE Boscastle Harbour
Easy - Generally flat but with one short uphill climb at the start and a more gentle descent back down to the harbour.
A short walk climbing out of Boscastle Harbour towards Pentargon Waterfall and returning via inland paths and the ‘Private Lane’. Visit at low tide, when water cascades in a booming torrent from the harbour blowhole (children will love it) - and allow time for the witchcraft museum! A brilliant walk in springtime, when the waterfall is especially powerful after the winter's rain and dazzling in the bright sunlight. There is blossom on the thorn bushes and flowers on the gorse, and violets and primroses in the hedges. Also good in autumn, when the leaves start to turn and the berries on the bushes are raided by the birds.
