For centuries Tintagel with its powerful atmosphere has been a place of inspiration for poets, composers and artists, including Turner and Tennyson. More recently Tintagelís magnificent scenery has delighted the modern equivalents of the movie and television program makers from home and abroad.
The dramatic setting of Tintagel castle, straddling the mainland and the island, seems to give credence to the myths and legends associated with it. Reputedly the ruins we see today were built on the site of an ancient fortress that would have been used by the ancient kings of Cornwall. We are convinced that our King Arthur was one of these kings. Todayís remains date from 1236 and the Earl Richard , second son of King John. The castle was added to during the 14th century by Edward he Black Prince, who was the 1st Duke of Cornwall. By the 17th century the ruins that survived had became known as King Arthurís Castle. The relentlessly pounding seas around our coastline has taken its toll on the landscape and much of the land that was around the castle has fallen away.
Tintagel is not only historic, we have beautiful beaches within easy reach, both sheltered secluded coves and family beach with lifeguard cover (summer months only) for all to enjoy. bring your surf or body boards or just hire them for your holiday
