Set high on a craggy peninsular overlooking a dramatic stretch of Cornish coast, Tintagel Castle offers much more than regular English Heritage ruins.

Manager recommends: Closer to home take a short amble over to Constantine Bay at low tide for a mini-beast hunt or down to Treyarnon Bay for some fun bodyboarding and a dip in the tide pool. If you fancied something a little further afield, get your boots and start walking! We are super lucky to be located on the South West Coast path. You can travel north to Padstow or head over the other side of the Bay towards Newquay. You certainly will not be disappointed with the view!
