Self Catering in and around Tintagel

TheTintagel area has every form of self-catering available, from holiday parks to quirky glamping sites, all of which you can find elsewhere on this website. For historical cottages in the heart of King Arthur country, this is the best place to look.


Steeped in magic and mystery, Tintagel’s connection with King Arthur has made the area popular with tourists, artists, and writers for centuries. Situated on a dramatic coastline pounded by the Atlantic, there’s much more to offer than just legends.

The land of King Arthur

Tintagel’s association with King Arthur can be traced back to Geoffrey of Monmouth’s book ‘History of the Kings of Britain’, written sometime in the first half of the 12th century. According to the book Tintagel Castle was the home of Uther Pendragon, Arthur’s father. Over the years countless other authors have created their own versions of the story, introducing us to Merlin, Guinevere, and the Knights of the Round Table.

How much truth is there in it, that’s up to you to decide. But we challenge anybody to not come away from Tintagel without feeling some of the magic.

  • Yes, but you probably need to be interested in King Arthur and mythology. There are other things to see, the old post office, the clifftop church and the spectacular coastline, but the shadow of the King is always lurking over your shoulder.
