The Headland is a quiet family run site on the coastal side of the village of Tintagel, just 10 minutes walk to the mystical ruins of King Arthur's Castle and 300 yards to the North Cornwall Coastal Path, renowned for its spectacular scenery. With no clubhouse we are ideal for those who want a peaceful, 'away from it all' holiday.

If you want to have a meal or a drink, go shopping or go to a disco, being in the village it's just a short walk, no need to take the car. We are open from Easter to October and the mild Cornish climate makes it ideal for early and late breaks as well as high season holiday.

How to Find us:

After entering Cornwall from Devon on the A30, by-pass Launceston. After 3 miles turn right onto the A395, signposted Trethorne Leisure Farm, towards Camelford. About 9 miles further on turn right at a small crossroads in Davidstow Village. Left at A39, then immediately turn right, and follow signposts to Tintagel. Straight on through the village and follow caravan/camping signs for The Headland.

Tintagel and District

The village attracts visitors from world wide with the main attraction being the mysterious ruined castle standing high on the Headland, its commanding defensive aspect adding to the 'magical stories of King Arthur'.

There are many more fine old buildings dating back to those 'Arthurian' days, including Churches, Museums, inns, Restaurants, Craft Shops and the natural beauty of St. Nectan's Glen and Rocky Valley, with its ancient hieroglyphical carving.

The 'Old Post Office' is as popular as the Castle, whilst King Arthur's Hall fully explains the legend in traditional flavour.

The location of Tintagel, 5 miles from Camelford is ideally situated to explore Bodmin Moor and indeed the whole of Cornwall and parts of Devon.

Safe bathing beaches nearby include Tintagel Cove, Bossiney, Benoath and Trebarwith Strand (about 2 miles south), renowned for its rock pools and surfing. All beaches are completely covered at high water.

There is so much to see and do in North Cornwall. The beaches, moors and historic houses. Whether your interests are walking, fishing, horse-riding, surfing, swimming, sailing, skiing, diving or just plain lazing on the beach we hope you will enjoy your stay with us.
In addition there are 3 golf courses within easy reach of Tintagel.

Boscastle is just 3½ miles distance. Boscatle features one of England's finest "old" harbours - remaining almost the same centuries. Sea-trips can be taken from here as the tide allows, and the cliff walks to Pentargon where you can see Cornwall's highest waterfall are quite dramatic. This area is Thomas Hardy Country to an extent, for he married the Rector's daughter of St. Juliots Church, which is tucked away in the Valency Valley, another deeply wooded walk with yet another church 'Minster' amongst tropical plants.

Camelford and Bodmin Moor - (5 miles)

A fine small town with many more places to walk and explore including Slaughter Bridge, reputed site of Arthur's last battle, Advent Church, North Cornwall Museum and the Moor. With 'Rough Tor' 2 miles to the East, Cornwall's highest plateau.
Fine Views across Cornwall and Devon on a clear day.
