A self-catering in Cornwall holiday is a great way to enjoy a sense of freedom and tranquillity whilst still enjoying the benefits of all-inclusive service. Here at Camelot Castle, we have luxury apartments that will be your home away from home in Tintagel. Perfect for larger families, small groups of friends or for a peaceful and romantic week away, our apartments are set apart from the hotel, giving you the peace and quiet you seek, whilst knowing our expert team are never too far away and always on hand to ensure your stay is the best it can be.
Here in Tintagel where we are based, there are so many things to see and do, which are right on your doorstep. From the endless trails that traverse along our coastal ways, to the picturesque villages that are filled with delicious eateries, Cornwall has it all. We are situated on the north Cornish coast, giving you great access to places like Bude, Port Isaac, Polperro, Rock, Polzeath, Padstow and Newquay. All of which are full to the brim with exciting day trips and excursions for the whole family. Our helpful and knowledgeable staff would be delighted to help you plan your days once you arrive, so you can be sure you made the most of your trip to Cornwall.
This luxury three-bedroom, self-catered apartment located on the Camelot Castle Estate has stunning sea views overlooking the ruins of Tintagel Castle and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Waking up here will feel like you have stumbled upon another world entirely, and the uninterrupted views are the perfect way to start the day. There is plenty of room for the whole family, or smaller friendship groups, to enjoy home-cooked meals, games nights, evenings in front of the TV, or just a place to rest your head.
The open-plan layout of this apartment is great for a whole host of fun family activities. If you opt to stay in and make use of our excellent kitchen facilities, then enjoying a home-cooked meal before a game of Monopoly is a marvellous way to end a jam-packed day of adventures.
This smaller, more traditional apartment complex has two double rooms and one twin room, and is located in our well-situated annex located just 50 meters from Camelot Castle. With all the amenities you need to entertain family and friends, it’s a great place to retreat to after a long day exploring the Cornish coast. You can also book to eat in our restaurant, enjoying our extensive, delicious menu overlooking the setting sun. You’ll also be able to bring your furry friends with you, as this apartment is dog-friendly!
Enjoying self-catering in Cornwall means freedom when exploring the coast. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to planning your days whilst on holiday here in Tintagel, for there is so much to see and do! If you enjoy cooking and whipping up delicious meals for those you love, then a trip to Boscastle Farm Shop for locally sourced, delicious supplies should be first on your list. Stocking your fridge with Boscastle’s wide range of produce will keep you well-fed for the entirety of your stay, whether you’re after tasty treats for lunchtime picnics, or ingredients for a hearty home-cooked meal for the whole family.
However, if you prefer relaxing whilst professionals rustle up something remarkable to eat, then why not book our exquisite Camelot Castle Afternoon Tea? Sit back and enjoy the sunshine on our terrace, overlooking the Arthurian ruins, whilst sipping on a delicate pink Prosecco refreshment. Accompanied by succulent finger sandwiches and only the finest handmade patisseries, it’s a wonderful way to while away an afternoon.
Not far from Tintagel lies the town of Padstow. Here you will also find a range of incredible restaurants, cafes and local pubs serving only the best food for the whole family to enjoy. Tuck in to a classic serving of fish and chips, steak and ale pie, or wood-fired oven pizzas. Not to mention some fine-dining options for those looking to holiday in style.
If day trips are what you’re after then look no further than The Eden Project. This verdant haven of tropical and subtropical plant life will have you in awe at the biomes that house them. Not to mention the incredible line-up of musicians that grace the Eden Sessions stage during the summer months. Explore their website for tickets, time slots, and for more information on how best to plan your day. The Eden Project has something for everyone thanks to their informative talks, the education center, the cafe serving delicious home-cooked meals, and we can’t forget the zip-wire whizzing you across this wondrous expanse.
You could also take a magical family trip to the ethereal St Nectans Glen, in the heart of the forest, where you can immerse yourself in the legends of King Arthur and the ghostly myths that adorn such places. This woodland walk takes you deep into the undergrowth, through tales of faeries, piskies and the spirits that supposedly call this place home. The 60-foot waterfall of St Nectans Glen is truly a sight to behold, as is the foliage, flora and fauna that surround it, granting this area as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and voted an area of outstanding natural beauty - you really must see it with your own eyes.
If you head south of Tintagel, winding your way through the country roads, you could also spend your day exploring Port Isaac. Located just over 20 minutes away, its superb restaurants, independent stores and fishing harbour are popular among visitors, especially those keen to see where popular show, Doc Martin, was filmed. Port Gaverne lies just around the coast from Port Isaac, a sheltered cove that offers safe waters for those keen to try paddleboarding, sea swimming and a host of other on-the-water activities. From here, it’s only another 20 minutes to Rock; hovering on the fringe of the shimmering Camel Estuary, Rock is home to a fabulous array of restaurants, and is one of the UK’s most popular sailing destinations. It’s also just a short water taxi away from popular Padstow, a town focused around a working fishing harbour and with a number of eateries capitalising on the bounty of locally caught seafood.
Once you’ve settled down into your luxury self-catering apartment overlooking the ocean, and experienced the tranquility that such locations bring, you’ll never want to leave! Our self-catered Cornish holidays are just what the doctor ordered this year, so explore our expansive range of accommodations here and start planning your ultimate adventure today. We look forward to welcoming you to Camelot Castle, and the rich history that this mythical pocket of Cornwall holds.
