Excellent food and service, cozy pub.

The food was exceptional and extremely fresh, I had the stew and my partner had the mackerel (both from the specials menu), both dishes were delicious accompanied by fresh vegetables and salad respectively.
Well worth a visit and booking is advisable, we went on Thurday night and the majority of tables were already booked, luckily for us we were able to grab a table.
The service was both professional and personal without being over attentive, really good staff.
The beer was poured from an old style stillage which was in fitting with the tradition of the building and tasted excellent.
A great find and well worth at least 1 visit!

Nearest beach

Benoath Cove (2 miles)

You can access this beach either from Bossiney Haven at low tide or along the coastal path. There is a car park on the outskirts of Bossiney (opposite Bossiney Lodge) and a path leads from here over fields to the coastal path. Take a right then sharp left and take care as the path is narrow and steep leading to the beach below. The beach is sandy with some good rock pools and caves to explore. At high tide the beach all but disappears and swimming is not recommended on an ebbing or low tide. Dogs are welcome year round.

Breathtaking at low tide, could be abroad, gorgeous soft sand and clear blue sea. Very steep climb down and back up, inaccessible to some. Unspoilt a classic Cornish beauty spot. 5 stars

Nearest walk

Boscastle Coast and Countryside Walk (½ mile)

Starting in the picturesque seaside village of Boscastle, this four and a half mile walk explores the cliffs above the harbour then inland through woodland and along the river. This moderate walk has some steps and stiles with a few short, steep ascents. Why not visit the pub on your return to Boscastle and enjoy a well deserved pint.

Nearest town

Boscastle (¾ mile)

One of the few sheltered harbours on the north coast, Boscastle became famous in 2004 due to the devastating floods that swept through the village. The community has recovered remarkably well, and Boscastle is once more a thriving resort and a lovely village to visit.

Staying in Boscastle

Boscastle was a wonderful place to stay for our holiday. Good local shops, like the post office and Spar for provisions. We tried several pubs. The Napoleon, the Wellington (for Sunday lunch = yum) and the Old Manor house. I would recommend the Boscastle made ice-cream from a shop half way down the harbour walk on the left hand side as you walk towards the sea.
We thoroughly enjoyed sitting for ages, watching the blowhole in the harbour. It 'blow's about 1-1.5 hrs either side of low tide, and is amazing to watch, and listen to aswell.
There is a really enjoyable walk from the main car-park along the Valency river, which is flat, unless you decide to go up to Minster church, and that path is very steep.
We didn't rate the Tourist shops very highly, because everything was so expensive.

Delightful place; harbour and old village up the hill. Fine coast walks to either Tintagel or Crackington Haven with options of bus connections. Also local valley/wood walks. Recommend Cobwebs pub at the harbour and The Napoleon up in the village. If self catering, the farm shop about half mile out of village towards Crackington Haven on B3263, is worth a visit.

Boscastle

Wonderful old harbour village - beautiful scenery can be seen from the headland which can be reached by two different paths, one on the right by the Harbour Light and one on the left. A tiny cove is also accessible where the blowhole can also be seen. Some lovely places to eat in Boscastle. We ate a lovely meal at the Cobweb Inn and also at the Riverside. We had cream teas and breakfast at the Harbour Light and Bridge Guest House, but the Riverside provided the best breakfast EVER. Some lovely shops such as the Mill and Things as well as an art gallery, fudge and Rock shop and 2 other fab gift shops. We love Boscastle and have been there many times. The Museum of Witchcraft also interesting. Visitor centre provides maps and info and also information about the flood and general history. Tintagel is 5 mins away and Crackington Haven about 10-15 mins drive as is Port Isaac. Padstow about 40 mins.

Tintagel Castle (3 ¼ miles)

The remains of Tintagel Castle are at the heart of Arthurian legend. The location of the castle is spectacular – half a mile outside of Tintagel, across rugged clifftops, with no vehicular access. Tintagel Island, attached to the mainland by a sliver of land, enhances the wild and romantic atmosphere.

Take your time

Leave unsteady members of the family at the café while more active members tackle the many uneven, high, sometimes slippery steps (handrails are provided - use them!). Enjoy the excellent information centre which uses an innovative overhead projector to show the succeeding occupations of the site. There is a café and toilets, and a Land Rover to run you down and back if the walk down the valley isn't for you.
This is a uniquely precious historical site, the first to show how dark age Britain was actually still firmly connected to Mediterranean civilisation. Its legendary connection to king Arthur led to the construction of the Norman castle, but don't let the historical fiction mislead you - this is a real site where hundreds of people lived and traded for centuries at the edge of the Atlantic long before the Saxons took over Cornwall. The dramatic cliffs, the birds, the butterflies will all make this a day to remember.

Worth the climb!

A visit to Tintagel is a must when visiting this part of the world! The Castle has breathtaking views,but is a steep climb up to the top. The village has lots of friendly gift shops and good pubs to choose from.

Nice but you must be fit

This is a lovely old ruin split between 2 cliffs. To access both involve very steep steps. You must be very fit but its a nice day out.

Tintagel and Trebarwith Strand

Although we stayed an hour away it was really worth the visit. My second visit in 10 years and so nice to see nothing had changed. Extremely steep slopes to climb - good steps and rails to hang on to but no access for wheelchairs or disabled! You must go on a good sunny day to take advantage of the views around. Always windy and blowy there.

Trebarwith Strand is just around the corner and is so worth the visit as the rock formation to get the beach is really worth seeing. Very natural but again no real access for wheelchairs or disabled really.

Cobweb Inn Boscastle (½ mile)

Set in the heart of stunning Boscastle, this family friendly pub serves home-made food and Cornish ales. The bar has open fires to keep you warm in winter and outside seating for relaxed dining during the summer. Dogs are welcome.

This delightful converted traditional mill house offers the best of both worlds: an excellent pint of Cornish Ale in a worn leather armchair, maybe a live band, maybe a fire in the hearth...then next door a crisp gastro-pub style fine dining experience all within a stones throw from the fabulous Trebarwith strand.

The Port William Inn (4 miles)

In a stunning setting, this pub offers wonderful views over Trebarwith Strand, excellent food and fine Cornish ales. A popular place for walkers, there is also a surf school nearby.

A real gem.

We stumbled across the Port William at Trebarwith Strand one evening on our way back from Port Issac. When we arrived the sun was setting, the tide was high and the waves roaring! The pub sits on part of the cliff which looks over the bay of Trebarwith, offering stunning views of this part of the coastline. We had a drink whilst sat on one of the picnic benches outside and watched the sunset. Bliss! We then returned to the Port William for lunch later in our holiday and the food was very tasty 'pub grub'. The staff were very welcoming and the pub is child and dog friendly and our two sons enjoyed looking at the huge fish tank that resides in the main bar!

An exceptional place to watch the sun set over Trebarwith Strand either with a pint of fine Cornish ale, glass of wine or a robust pub feast. Great food and a recently added contemporary extension to the dining area with outstanding sea views.

Trebarwith Strand Beach (4 miles)

Made up of half a mile of soft, golden sand backed by rock and cliff, Trebarwith Strand is a National Trust-owned beach near Tintagel. Easily accessible, at low tide a huge expanse of sand is revealed whilst at high tide the sea covers nearly all the beach. Lifeguarded in summer, Trebarwith Strand is a popular spot amongst people of all ages.

Trebarwith Strand

We walked along the cliff tops to discover this beautiful stretch of dog friendly beach. It is accessed by a rocky plateau but once on the beach there is a long stretch of golden sand with plenty of room for all to play. Lots of body boarding & surfing to be had with places to hire equipment. It's a lovely unspoilt area with a couple of cafes, tourist shops & a pub. Definitely worth a visit.

Fantastic beach

We were recommended Trebarwith Strand as one of the nicest beaches along this stretch of coastline. It was beautiful. We visited at lowtide, so lots of sandy beach available. The entry onto the beach is past a few cafes (we had an amazing cream tea in one of them = yum) and over a rocky area, before you reach the sand. The rocks themselves are fascinating. The beach is a good size, with rock pools and caves and plenty for all to explore. Some of the roads approaching Trebarwith are steep and narrow - as is often in this part of Cornwall.

An absolute classic!

Trebarwith Strand lies at the end of a narrow lane that descends through a wooded valley to this beachside hamlet. A vast beach at Spring low tides, its only downside is at high tide it is reduced to a modest rocky plateau. Armed with a tide table, however, there is no excuse for at least 6 hours a day on this deeply charismatic beach. Surrounded by an impressive cliff-scape this beach offers caves, huge sand flats, streams and rock pools big enough for the kids to safely swim in. Great surf as well including surf hire and lessons.When the tide does gently nudge the family up onto the rocky plateau, lovely in its own right, there is always the Port William pub overlooking the beach or a variety of cafes and a couple of quirky gift shops to keep everyone entertained. This is also a great place to access the coastal path heading North East to Penhallic point and Tintagel castle or South West to Tregardock beach and Port Isaac. It can get busy in the high season but never on the Polzeath scale and out of season it is usually very peaceful.
