Just along the coast, Tintagel Castle, legendary birthplace of King Arthur. The castle is built on a rugged, windswept ‘almost’ island on the North Cornwall shore. It is a wonderful place to visit for the day if you love to scramble down hillsides and clamber up stone steps and can imagine being there 1500 years ago. It has it’s own beach with a waterfall and a huge cave (Merlins Cave) that floods at high tide. It is also really good to paint, as I have, several times.
