About this location

The Cornwall region

The north of Cornwall has one of Europe's most spectacular coastlines. The highest cliffs in England, golden sandy beaches, some of the finest coastal walking in the world and fishing villages are all to be found along this stretch of coast. Wildlife abounds with dolphins, seals, otters and many varieties of seabirds. In summer the beaches are not as crowded as elsewhere in Cornwall; spring is a riot of colour on the cliffs; autumn's warm seas are a surfers paradise; and winter shows Cornwall at its most dramatic with crisp sunny days and massive Atlantic rollers pounding the coast.

Inland are the moors of Bodmin and Dartmoor with superb walking, rocky tors, stone circles, dolmens and great pubs. Within easy driving distance lie the internationally known attractions of Newquay, St. Ives, Land's End, St. Michael's Mount and the Eden Project.

Walkers, rock climbers, surfers and bodyboarders will find the area a paradise, boating and fishing opportunities of all types abound and there is no shortage of golf courses, many in attractive coastal locations.


Just a few minutes walk from Guinevere lies one of Britain's most famous attractions, Tintagel Castle. Sited on a rocky promontory the atmospheric ruins easily conjure up images of the Uther Pendragon, Igraine and Arthur. The whole area is steeped in Arthurian legend and there are many sites to visit.

Within walking distance or a short drive away are the beautiful beaches of Bossiney Haven and Trebarwith. The former is sheltered and the turquoise waters here are ideal for bathers; the latter receives the full force of the Atlantic, is fantastic for surfing and bodyboarding and has a superbly located pub on the cliffs overlooking the beach. Internationally famous surfing beaches lie to the north around the attractive Victorian resort of Bude and to the south at Polzeath.

Just north of Tintagel, and walkable along one of the very best sections of the South West Coast Path, lies beautiful Boscastle, with its tiny houses and secluded harbour; to the south lie the fishing villages of Port Gaverne, Port Quin and Port Isaac (home of the TV series 'Doc Martin'). Slightly further is the Camel estuary with Rock, holiday resort of the rich and famous, and Padstow with its collection of Rick Stein's restaurants.

Walkable again from Tintagel are the superb waterfall at St Nectan's Glen and the attractive Rocky Valley with its gorge and mysterious rock carvings. Within a few minutes drive the remote beaches of The Strangles and Tregardock are accessible to walkers which you may be lucky enough to have entirely to yourselves even in the summer.
