It's easy to understand how the stories of kings, knights, giants, and wizards evolved along these mist-swathed, windswept shores. Cornwall is a land of sweeping moors, rocky tors, immense cliffs towering over crashing seas. It's a land where stone is one of the traditional products, and tin mines delve deep into the cliff faces. On a clear day, one can see for miles into the distance, out to where the ocean fades into the horizon. It's a land of heroes and heroines, with a history that extends into the mists of time. It's a country of villages and hamlets; there's only one city, Truro, in the entirety of Cornwall. Cornish folks hereabouts feel a closeness, a camaraderie, that defines their character. It's a fine place to explore; every nook has a story to tell! See our travels in the Tintagel area here.
