A Local's Guide to Tintagel

Tintagel is an Atlantic Ocean-facing village in North Cornwall. It has been a seaside resort since the late 19th century thanks to the presence of Tintagel Castle and a resurgence of interest in the legend of King Arthur around the time. Today, the castle ruins make the village one of the most visited places in the UK, with around 230,000 visitors per year.

A local's guide to Portreath

Portreath is a hidden gem of a village tucked into the North Cornwall Coast. It lies 4 miles south of Porthtowan and 4.5 miles from Redruth inland.  It’s a quiet haven away from busier resorts across the Duchy, but it still has many handy amenities, including a few pubs and shops for visitors without making it feel overly commercialised. The beach is wide, sandy and popular with bodybo

A magical coastline

A Tintagel holiday starts with a visit to the castle which, according to legend, once housed the mighty King Arthur. The jaw-dropping ruins have stunning views out to sea, and the often overlooked Tintagel Haven beach lies in its shadows at the bottom of the valley.

The coastline has an amazing network of coves and caves used in the past by smugglers and pirates. Clamber down the cliffs at low tide to visit Merlin’s Cave, said to once be the home of the wizard Merlin. The Tintagel coast is also connected to the South West Coast Path, with three circular walks suitable for all abilities.

From traditional pub grub to fine dining, there are a number of restaurants, pubs and cafés serving food in the village, while 14th century National Trust property The Old Post Office is well worth a visit.
