Tintagel Holiday Homes & Cottages in Cornwall

Steeped in myth and legends, Tintagel is a small village that packs a big punch. From your luxury holiday home, explore all that this area has to offer.

You can’t visit Tintagel without exploring its castle, a medieval fortification. Climb the 148 steps to the island and walk through the wooden door that once led into the Great Hall, built by Richard Earl of Cornwall. Discover the legend of King Arthur and take an amble down to the beach to step inside Merlin’s Cave.

After all that though, you will need to refuel and what better way than with a traditional Cornish pasty from Pengenna Pasties! There are also several pubs and a cafe in the village, or if you fancy a drive to nearby Trebarwith Strand then The Port William serves an excellent meal with views out over the ocean.

Your Tintagel holiday cottage will have everything you need to cook at home and with Boscastle Farm shop just a few miles away, you will want to check out their range of local produce that includes fresh fruits, vegetables and meats.

Tintagel has lots of gift shops and perhaps the most well known of these is the Tintagel Pottery Studio, opened in 1948 and producing unique pottery ever since which is collected by enthusiasts all over the world. There is also a range of gift shops and The Honey Shop is particularly charming, selling bee and honey related gifts (and of course honey produced locally to Tintagel).

If you are interested to explore further afield your self-catering holiday home is situated close to the A39. Around 30 minutes north of Tintagel is Bude, a traditional seaside town with beaches, a canal, restaurants, bars, water activities such as surfing and gift shopping. A 40 minute drive south of Tintagel will bring you to Padstow, a vibrant harbour town favoured by world-renowned chefs and tourists alike for its food scene. Padstow has plenty of shops, cafes and bars to keep you entertained.

Tintagel and the north coast will have you returning to your Cornish cottage again and again!
