High on Cornwall's north coast, where several rivers meet, this enchanting fishing village has 'gorgeous' written all over it, from cobbled streets to yummy ice cream treats.

This natural inlet has a strong maritime background, being right on the coast, and also at the mouth of various rivers. The Elizabethan quay is set into a circle of steep cliffs, a backdrop of classic stone cottages and tiny streets giving the place a picture-postcard feel. If you can tear yourself away from the boats and wheeling gulls, history is in the surrounding wildlife: look out for the Forrabury Stitches, remains of ancient Celtic field strips once used to divide the land. Pack a pasty in your backpack and turn it into a coast walk, for stunning views to north and south.

The cliff stroll to Tintagel, a few miles south, takes in old mills and an iron age cliff castle, while the castle at Tintagel itself is popular with sword-carrying children game enough to scramble up the steep access path and burst through the old gate; in the cliff below an artist has carved the face of legendary Merlin as a fitting memento. Beachgoers can relax at Crackington Haven, just to the north of Boscastle, a sandy stretch of bay with rock pools to explore when the tide is out. Time your visit for the Budelicious Food Festival and stock up on fresh produce for beachy snacks.
