With the sound of the waves crashing against rocks, the salt sea air and the wind in your hair" this is the place to soak up the special atmosphere of mythical Tintagel. This wild, remote cliff top location has stunning coastal views and glorious sunsets.
This former quarryman's cottage is ideal for getting away from it all. Isolated and atmospheric with spectacular coastal views over Dunderhole Point, it's only 15 minutes walk from the village of Tintagel. This is the place to indulge in Arthurian myth and legend. This self-catering property is down a rough, unlit track. Carry a good torch if walking back from the village after dark.
