King Arthur's Cornwall Tour - Tintagel, St. Nectan's Glen and the Witches of Boscastle

Tintagel Castle lies on a windy promontory overlooking Tintagel Haven and is the famous birthplace of King Arthur.
Beneath it lies the magical Merlin's Cave where the baby Arthur was said to have been hidden and protected by Merlin.

The seaside town of Tintagel has an array of magical shops selling pagan and Celtic supplies, as well as a romantic 19th century reconstruction and exhibit at King Arthur's Great Halls.

Just outside Tintagel you can find the magical St Nectan's Glen where you can follow an enchanted woodland pathway to a sacred waterfall which cascades through a deep gully known as St Nectan's Kieve where all kinds of ritual offerings and gifts for the fairies can be found deposited around.

Further along the road you come to the strange little witch-haunted fishing village of Boscastle. There you can visit the Museum of Witchcraft, or head inland to the White Church where pagan rites are still said to be performed.

Travelling further afield you come to the haunted and misty landscape of Bodmin Moor with its witch stones and lonely stone circles.
The Arthurian Centre at Camelford lies on the other side of the moor, and there you can see King Arthur's Stone and the legendary site of the battle of Camlann.
Finally we can head over to isolated and haunted Dozmary Pool on the edge of the moor, where the sword Excalibur was said to have been cast back into the waiting hand of the Lady of the Lake.

(1-3 days)

Most tours take 1-2 days and Rob charges a flat rate of £200 per day plus fuel, irrespective of the number of people on the tour.
So the more people in the group the cheaper it will be per person.
The vehicle can take up to 4 people, so at full capacity it will be only £50 per person.

Larger groups, longer itineraries, special arrangements, and shorter half-day mini-tours can be arranged.
