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.

I enquired and was very pleased that Kristine answered any questions I had right away. We had a long journey to get there and it was much appreciated that Kristine gave us the option to leave later on the day we went home. The area was very picturesque with great local attractions, and after a long day of exploring there was nothing better than relaxing in the comfy beds! Would definitely visit again! Many thanks, Charlotte and family :)

The house is fully equipped and really comfortable and clean. Garden is big with patio area to sit in the sun and bowling green area at the bottom of the garden which the kids enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to explore north Cornwall. Lots of beautiful places to visit nearby. The only thing I would recommend is a tumble dryer so that clothes can be dried quickly but that is the only negative I could think of. Will definitely return.
