More Things to do...

  • Step back in time at the atmospheric Tintagel Old Post Office, originally a 14th-century farmhouse, with its famously wavy roof. Now managed by the National Trust there are regular family events such as Victorian bread making and music in the cottage garden 
  • Sample some of Granny Wobbly’s fudge at her shop on the main street. Choose from vanilla, maple and walnut, rum and raisin, butterscotch and chocolate, all traditionally made on the premises 
  • If the kids want a short break from all that Cornish culture, let them have a blast at the local skateboard park at Tintagel Playing Fields or there’s a great little amusement arcade called Camelot opposite the old post office 
  • Take a walk up to windswept Glebe Cliff and visit the ancient church of St Materiana’s. Little changed for over 900 years, the church is a fine example of Norman architecture and contains an array of historic artefacts
