Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Tintagel

The village of Tintagel lies near the towering cliffs of the North Cornwall coast. It is famous for its association with the Legend of King Arthur and is an atmospheric base for exploring the region. Wander from your Tintagel holiday cottage, and you will discover a variety of gift shops, such as Spriggans Cove and Celtic Legend. There are several good places to eat and drink, including Uncle Jack’s Cabin, where you can expect excellent fish and chips, and the Olive Room, a popular Italian restaurant. Charlie’s serves amazing coffee, homemade cake and local produce. For a pint of ale from Tintagel Brewery, head to Ye Olde Malthouse Inn, The Cornishman, or King Arthur’s on Fore Street. There is also a post office and grocery in the village centre, a short stroll from some lovely Tintagel holiday cottages.

The village has several unique attractions, including the Tintagel Toy Museum, where an incredible selection of nostalgic toys can be explored. Nearby, King Arthur’s Great Halls were built in slate and granite during the 1930s to celebrate the local legend. Follow Castle Road away from the village, toward the coast, and you will soon reach the ruins of Tintagel Castle, where King Arthur is said to have been born. Perched on a clifftop overlooking the waves, this spectacular site is not to be missed on self-catering holidays in Tintagel. There is a sandy beach with a maze of rockpools to explore and Merlin’s Cave, where you can watch the waves crashing against the cliffs. The South West Coast Path passes Tintagel, heading east to the sheltered sandy cove of Bossiney Haven and south to Trebarwith Strand, where some of the area’s best surfing conditions can be found. The pretty fishing village of Port Isaac and the mysterious landscapes of Bodmin Moor are both nearby. Other locations for enjoyable day trips along the North Cornwall coast include Boscastle and Crackington Haven.
