Tintagel and District

Tintagel Castle Tintagel attracts visitors from all over the world, with the main focus on the mysterious ruined castle standing high on the Headland, its commanding defensive aspect adding to the Ďmagicalí stories of King Arthur, along with Merlin's cave on the beach below.

As well as the castle there are many more fine old sites apparently relating to King Arthur's mystical past, including King Arthur's Great Halls which fully explains the legend in all its glory. Other historical buildings include 'The Old Post Office' (see picture) and St Materianna's church on the cliffs.

The Old Post Office Tintagel is strategically placed being only three miles from Boscastle, with its renowned harbour and fishing village, and in walking distance of the beautiful St Nectans Glen and the Rocky Valley with its hieroglyphic carvings. It is ideally situated to explore Bodmin Moor and indeed the whole of Cornwall and Devon.

Trebarwith Strand For the sun worshippers there are several safe bathing beaches nearby, including Tintagel Cove, Bossiney, Benoath and Trebarwith Strand (about 2 miles away), renowned for its rock pools and surfing. All the beaches are completely covered at high tide.

Whether your interests are rambling, fishing, horse riding, surfing, swimming, microlite flying, golfing, gardening with the famous Eden Project not far away,or just lazing on the beach, there is so much to see and do in North Cornwall that we are sure that you will enjoy your stay with us at whatever time of year.


Boscastle is just 3 miles away and is one of Englandís finest old harbours remaining almost the same for centuries. Sea trips can be taken from here as the tide allows, and the cliff walks to Pentargon where you can see Cornwallís highest waterfall are quite dramatic. This area is Thomas Hardy Country to an extent, for he married the rectors daughter of St Juliotís Church, which is tucked away in the Valency Valley, another deeply wooded walk with yet another church "Minster" amongst tropical plants.

Camelford and Bodmin Moor ( 5 Miles)
