Tintagel is a lovely North Cornwall village with several pubs, all within easy walking distance, child friendly & all serving food but really quiet as there is no real night-life.
It is a haven for walkers and those who enjoy the "simple pleasures" of being outside in beautiful countryside.
Tintagel Haven beach is a 5 minute walk away.
You can also walk to the Coast Path in either direction for stunning views and clearing cobwebs, with no need to take the car.
There are plenty of maps and information at the house on all manner of walks and attractions for all ages & interests.
Tintagel is famous for the mythical home of King Arthur and the ruins of the castle are also a 5 minute walk away.
We also have a lovely Old Post Office, which is now a English Heritage museum.
Close by is Boscastle, a picturesque village and old fishing port and also home to the Museum of Witchcraft, and if the tide is right, the Blow Hole. In the other direction is Port Isaac, used as the fictional home of Port Wenn for the TV series Doc Martin
Tintagel is within easy driving reach of all the other main Cornish attractions - Eden Project, Padstow, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Newquay and a number of other surfing beaches.
There is a basic bus service, but you really need your own transport to make the most of your stay here.
Sorry but no dogs or smoking allowed.
This is our home and we would love to share it with like minded people, who will look after and respect it as much as we do.
We do not allow smoking or pets, due to allergies.
We stayed for four nights and had an absolutely wonderful stay with family and relatives. The house was nice and clean and very cosy with all the amenities that we needed. Our first impressions after stepping in and exploring the house were "Beautiful, just beautiful".
The house is situated in a great location, nice and central to the village and with easy access to the many local attractions. Wendy provided some helpful local tips and made us feel very welcome.
I can thoroughly recommend the place to anyone wanting a peaceful stay in a modern and clean house in North Cornwall!
Thanks Wendy & Mark for allowing us to share your lovely Tintagel home. The weather was beautiful & made all the amazing walks that you have on your doorstep, all the more enjoyable. Thanks again

Our family had a great time at this house in Tintagel! It was spacious, clean, and well stocked. Tintagel was a cute town with lots of restaurants and pubs. The house is right next to the castle and just a couple of mins walk to the footpaths to the cliffs, which were spectacular. My husband had to work, and he was happy to have good wifi and a great, bright solarium to work. We didn't have the opportunity to meet Wendy, but she was very responsive via email, particularly when we had a problem with the wifi (which turned out to be our fault). Thanks, Wendy, for a great holiday!
Home was as listed & situated in a location close to all the facilities in Tintagel. Plenty of information about Cornwall was available at the home.Very easy home to maintain & tastefully decorated. Loved coming home to it at night.
The house is stunning and did really exceed our expectations. It provides a cosy and stylish atmosphere, the kitchen is completely equipped and everything is well thought-through, new and in perfect condition. The location of the house is also great -it's only a 10 min walk to the castle or to the cliffs. Wendy was a brillant host. We didn't meet her personally, but she was always very responsive and pragmatic. She provided us with all relevant information about the house and local attractions upfront and the handover of the keys was absolutely uncomplicated. 100% satisfied, I would definitively book again.
Great directions to the house, ideal position within walking distance to the centre but quiet, away from 'the tourists'! Absolutely stunning inside, clean and immaculate with lovely wooden and tiled floors. The downstairs bedroom is ideal for the elderly/disabled who cannot manage stairs, my parents loved the underfloor heating. Sadly we didn't meet Wendy, but she promptly resolved a minor 'plug' problem.
I highly recommend..and already have!
The house was well located, very comfortable and modern. It was lovely to have breakfast every morning at the sunny conservatory. Tintagel is a great base for someone who is looking to explore the North coast of Cornwall. There are lovely walks along the Coast path. There is also a basket full of very helpful information about Cornwall. We took Wendy's suggestion and went for a few (email hidden) Olde Malthouse Inn which is a few steps away from the house and we had a very lovely evening at this cosy and welcoming pub. Also worth visiting to have some fresh baked scones and Cornish pasties is the Pengenna. Very yummy! Thank you very much Wendy for making your lovely home available to us.

About the Host, Wendy
We use Airbnb to travel around the world and have met some fabulous friends this way.
We love the Great Outdoors and have built our own haven in Cornwall, in which to enjoy it to the max.
We divide our time these days between Cornwall, France and Surrey - depending on work & family commitments and of course, where the best party is!
We would love to share our home with like minded people.
