This little Cornwall village is perhaps best known to tourists for its Museum of Witchcraft & Magic, but it offers a great deal more. In this lengthy one floor shop, offering a wide range of local goods aimed at tourists, you'll find hints of just what that is, from books & paintings highlighting its gorgeous landscapes, to clothing, food &...

We called in whilst at Boscastle, and enjoyed a coffee, The café provides a good selection of both drinks and cakes. Would have got a five star but drinks are served in a paper cup, not really National Trust style.

We stopped off for lunch in Boscastle. We have been before to the National Trust Cafe. Just want to say - the food was excellent. Just a quick sandwich but fresh, tasty & quick. The staff are so friendly. We took our big daft dog in too !! He was made very welcome. What a lovely place !!!

Nothing stunning, quietist cafe at the sea end of Boscastle, warm and welcoming on this wet and windy day. The best bit was in finding a Flat White very near to the taste of those we had in NZ, we've been searching for a long while. Well done and thanks.

The National Trust visitors centre is in a beautiful location adjacent to Boscastle harbour. The usual gifts are available in the National Trust shop. The coffee is excellent and a good selection of cakes are offered to the peckish visitor. All served in paper cups and plates that are composted locally to reduce waste water being discharged into the sea.

The cafe also has the usual food goodies you would expect from the National Trust and without fail I always have a cream Tea here. There are a... More
