B O S C A S T L E • Cornwall 🏴🇬🇧 ~ this is The Harbour Light tea rooms in Boscastle and although it looks delightful, it hides a tragic recent past. In 2004, Boscastle was devastated when a ‘once in 400 years’ storm struck. 2m tonnes of rainwater washed through the village in one day sending 150 vehicles hurtling through the village destroying many buildings as they went. One building they completely destroyed was The Harbour Light Tea Room but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s been restored beautifully. Amazingly, no one died due to a little luck and fortune but also due to our excellent emergency services who airlifted 100 people to safety.
