Property Location


Tintagel exudes charm and medieval history with Arthurian legend as the birth place of King Arthur, Tintagel Island is reached via a narrow footpath with many steps but construction has started on a new foot bridge to link the island to the mainland which should be completed in 2020. The cliffs around Tintagel are all Devonian Slate and the sands at the foot of the cliffs turn the sea a bright turquoise in strong sunlight, a truly beautiful sight. Tintagel is a delightful holiday village with many tourist shops and cafés, pubs and restaurants.

To the north is Trethevy is a picturesque hamlet, equidistant from Boscastle and Tintagel and has a history which may well go back to 250 AD when a granite post was inscribed with C DOMI N GALLO ET VOLUS – ‘For the Emperor Caesars our lords Gallus and Volusian’ this can now be found outside St Piran a former monastery and now private residence, Trethevy is also home to St Nectans Glen a beautiful valley where the River Trevillet has carved its way through the slate and formed a beautiful 60' waterfall.

Further north is Boscastle is a tiny port set in a narrow ravine, the town came into prominence recently as a result of terrible floods in the summer of 2004. There is a pottery in the village and several gift shops. A footpath to the left of the quayside will take you to the 'Lookout' which is a wonderful vantage point from which to view the rugged coastline. Boscastle was once a favourite meeting place of the author Thomas Hardy, and is the location for one of his novels 'A Pair of Blue Eyes'. Boat trips can be taken from the harbour as far as Long Island, where during the breeding season you may see razorbills, puffins & guillemots. There is a demanding 7 mile coastal path walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven. There are several attractions along this stretch of coast including Strangles beach at the bottom of a large landslip with a rock arch the Northern Door. Just south of here is High Cliff which is the highest point on the Cornish coast path. Don't forget to visit Pentargon inlet which has an imposing waterfall that cascades down to the sea below.

2 miles south of Tintagel lies Trebarwith Strand, at low tide there is about a mile of glorious sandy beach, please make sure you check the tides before going for a walk as this beach all but disappears as the tide comes in and every year walkers need to be rescued who have misjudged the tide. There are hundreds of rock pools that can provide endless entertainment for the younger members of your family.

On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island. Camelford is a great centre for touring, walking, fishing, swimming or surfing holidays. The town is steeped in history and has excellent shopping and sporting facilities. Port Isaac is the location of the television series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. The famous Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge, and out to Padstow where you can sample Rick Steins famous Fish and Chips. The market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.

Fabulous stay :)

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful cottage in the beginning of September. It is a lovely old Cornish cottage with the traditional thick stone walls and a pretty little cottage garden with a small brook running through the centre of it. The cottage is about a 1 minute walk to the centre of Tintagel, with lots of pubs and shops. You are close enough to get to the heart of the village without being in the hubbub of it. The road from the cottage to the village centre is quite steep, but it is only for a 150 yds so not too bad and I'm not the fittest person! The cottage is part of an old vicarage and is attached to the owners B & B business. The owners are lovely and very respectful of giving you space. They are happy to tell you about the local restaurants and things you might like to do. I would stay at this cottage again in a heartbeat. I hadn't visited Tintagel for 20 years and it was great to be back.
