Travel through the winding country lanes bordered by Cornish hedges and you will arrive at the awe inspiring village of Tintagel. With legendary links to King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table you are sure to feel a sense of inspiration and magical adventure when visiting this fascinating area.
Beautiful turquoise green water washes around the coastline here and Blackened Castle ruins still cling to a wind-swept and wave lashed island. Walk across the narrow bridge and climb up steep steps to discover King Arthur's mysterious castle. Explore its history which stretches back to Roman times. Merlin's Cave is hidden amongst the rocks but only visible and accessible at low tide.
Visit the 14th century Old Post Office, a manor in miniature with its topsy-turvy roof and ancient stonework. Walk along the wild flower covered cliffs in the summer and enjoy the spectacular scenery of the North Cornish coast.
