Spending a few days in Devon but not too far from Cornwall we wanted to meet up with vt members Mary and Geoff Wright. I had phoned them beforehand and Geoff said they would be away whatever day we were going down there, something about a world cruise I think he said!!!!
The weather wasnt particularly kind to us and after spending a few hours in Plymouth (where the weather hadnt been too bad) we drove up to North Cornwall to meet Mary and Geoff.
We arrived at Mary and Geoff's, sat and had a cup of tea and chatted for a while even though Geoff insisted on telling me of the mice that visited their homr knowing full well that I was terrified of the creatures. According to Geoff they even sit their and watch tv!
A lot of people may not even have heard of Boscastle which is situated on the north Cornish coast, but in August 2004 it was headline news when flash floods devasted this tiny village.
This area is also famous because 5 miles down the road is Tintagel the supposed 'seat'of King Arthur.
14 miles south is Bude.
- Pros:A friendly village
This Youth Hostel situated right on the river was in the worst position when the river burst its bank, When we visited... more travel advice
