Boscastle shop stocks a wide range of gifts and books. Visitors will find a large selection of maps, walking guides and other items you may find useful to help you explore the outdoors.

The shop also sells locally sourced jewellery and beach art including sea glass pictures. Cornish preserves, fudge and biscuits as well as ciders and beers are on sale too.

Visitors looking for children’s gifts will find everything from pocket money toys to games and books connecting children to nature, many based on the National Trust’s 50 things campaign. Den and bug kits as well as spotter guides are popular.

Plants are for sale from our courtyard between March and October; sourced locally and grown in peat free compost.


Our café is offering a takeaway service, serving a range of hot and cold drinks, light snacks including pasties, sausage rolls and sandwiches, as well as cakes and Cornish ice cream.

We will continue to maintain high standards of cleanliness and till and collection points will be screened. Hand sanitiser will be available should visitors wish to use it. Thank you for making this a safe experience for everyone.

We are now able to offer refills for reusable cups.
