HomeAway is a leading supplier of holiday accommodation in Tintagel. Many of these are close to the sea, giving the guests that air of serenity that they long for.

Things to do

-Tintagel Castle: It is impossible to separate the parish of Tintagel from Tintagel Castle, the remains of which still sit on the peninsula of Tintagel Island. Legend has it that the great King Arthur was born within its four walls and this castle has as a result found its way into folklore and poetry. It was built in the early medieval period.

-Other monuments: There are other ancient landmarks that occupants of holiday homes in Tintagel can check out during their holiday. The so-called ‘old post office’ is a building that was constructed in the 14th century and only actually came into use as a post office in the 19th century. It is now listed as a historic building and managed by The National Trust. Another of Tintagel’s monuments is King Arthur’s hall, an impressive structure put up in the 1930s. Its standout feature is the stained glass windows depicting the legend of King Arthur.

-Bird-watching: Tintagel’s coast is a home for many species of seabirds including ravens and falcons. The Cornish chough is, however, the bird that is most emblematic of this locale. Owls and buzzards can also be spotted here by birdwatchers if they’re lucky.

-Merlin’s cave: Arthurian folklore gave us the sorcerer Merlin and just as King Arthur had the Tintagel Castle, Merlin was said to inhabit a cave. This cave is visible from the castle and is just a short walk down a rocky slope. It is beautiful and tranquil place which fills up and becomes inaccessible when the tide is in.

-Eating out: Those lodging in holiday homes in Tintagel will want to try out the offerings of Pengenna Pasties. The pasties served here are humongous and enough to satisfy the most raging of appetites. Visitors will want to book their pasties before ascending into the Tintagel Castle and come down to stuff themselves silly afterwards.

Good location - very quiet - and easy access to the coastal path and a very short drive from Tintagel. Would definitely recommend.

Even made sure the heating was on for when we arrived which was very appreciated. They left complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and milk which was a lovely touch. The cottage itself was in an amazing location. Not far from local amenities and great for a beautiful costal walk. There was 6 of us in total 4 adults and 2 children with 2 dogs. Which we were all very comfortable. The board games and wii kept the children entertained. The cottage was well stocked with everything from cooking utensils to even body boards that we could use. We had an amazing time and will definitely return.
