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.

The cottage had everything to hand and felt like 'home from home' with every conceivable extra available. The location was quiet but easily accessible to all the local tourist attractions. Julie and Clive were exceptional hosts, very hospitable, generous and friendly. We will certainly return one day.

The owner is super friendly and has thought of everything you would need for a perfect stay. Already booked again for the summer. Thanks Maggie
