I went on holiday to a seaside village but left as soon as I could – I'll never return to the place with a dark secret | The Sun

A HOLIDAYMAKER who visited a pretty seaside village said they left as soon as they could, vowing never to return.

A Twitter user named Boscastle, a picturesque Cornish town, as a place they would never go back to in a startling online admission.

The popular social media page @NoContextBrits posed the question to its followers, asking which British place people had been to but would never want to revisit.

In response, the user @Harmunt had a surprising answer, writing: “It has to be #Boscastle in #Cornwall.

“Easily the most unnerving atmosphere I've ever felt… We spent the morning there and left as quickly as we could.”

Despite the picture postcard charm of the village, it does apparently have a dark past which is still supposedly hanging around today.

Mixed in with the village’s unspoilt harbour and numerous gift shops there’s the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic.

As the name suggests, it devotes itself to the history of magical practice in Britain from ancient times right up to the present day and looks at the tragic deaths of those who were once killed having been accused of practicing witchcraft.

There is also The Wellington Hotel, one of Cornwall’s oldest coaching inns, which is claimed to be haunted with past visitors saying they have seen all sorts while they were staying there.

One previous visitor, taken with the area’s magic, even called it “the British equivalent of Salem, Massachusetts”.

Most visitors to the village once loved by author Thomas Hardy though aren’t put off by the village’s supposed magical past and flock to the area to enjoy its rich history and beautiful scenery.

One person responded to the tweet and praised Boscastle, writing: "Oh I love Boscastle.

“Visited after the flooding and the lady in the Witchcraft Museum was showing us where the flood levels come to and stuff. Everyone so friendly!"

Another person said: "What the Witchcraft museum didn’t settle the nerves? I brought some interesting books there."
