Tintagel Castle: Explore the Legend of King Arthur

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Just eight miles up the road from Port Isaac sits Tintagel Castle, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. Set amongst the cliffs of the North Cornwall coast, this dramatic ruin promises to be a great day out for anyone staying at the Beach House.

Once home to the Earl of Cornwall, Tintagel Castle dates back to the 13th century. Nowadays it is one of the South West’s most iconic attractions, pulling in tourist from all over the globe. With a unique blend of history, myth and breath-taking scenery, this is a must-see for all the family!

Explore the remains of the castle nestled high into the cliff-face, take a stroll to nearby Merlin’s Cave and learn about the fabled tale of Tristan and Isolde. Afterwards relax with a cup of tea in the Beach Café which offers stunning views across the rugged Cornish coastline.

From the Beach House, Tintagel Castle is just a short car ride away, while buses also run on a regular basis. If you’re feeling energetic, why not arrive by foot? The South West coastal path runs from Port Isaac straight to Tintagel Head. The nine mile stretch is well worth the effort, as you get to fully appreciate the spectacular landscape North Cornwall has to offer.
