The first spring sunshine meant a walk in Boscastle, North Cornwall with Woody the Sausage dog, who can sniff out all the best properties in the West Country. Walking boots are recommended as the coastal path is rough, muddy and steep in some places.

Our circular walk took us up Forrabury Hill via the delightful church, and on to Willapark with its white coastguard lookout, across the medieval fields called the Forrabury Stitches, and down the dramatic coast path back down to the harbour.
Forrabury Church and the Coastguard lookout at Willapark featured at the start of the British comedy film ‘Saving Grace’, which sparked the Doc Martin ITV series.
