Christmas is over, so it's time to decompress with this spectacular weekend on the clifftop in Tintagel.

Walk through Myths and Legends on the Cornish Coast in an area that's just oozes Arthurian Romance.  If you're lucky, you might bump into your Knight in Shining Armour....

This will be a dramatic weekend as we overlook what I'm sure will be some impressive scenes out to the coast from our high vantage point nestled safely above the waves.

Tintagel provides some great coastline walk options, and with a history stretching as far back as the Romans, Tintagel Castle is one of the most iconic visitor attractions in the south west.  Other attractions include Merlin’s Cave, potteries, galleries, and you can step back in time at the atmospheric Tintagel Old Post Office (originally a 14th-century farmhouse) with its famously wavy roof.

The Hostel is perched on a cliff top.  It's within easy walking distance of Tintagel for sightseeing, restaurants, shops and bars. You get a real sense of the age of the hostel from the beautiful exposed beams and old stone chimney and a wood-burner makes the hostel a really cosy space to be.


Friday Evening: Arrive anytime after 4pm, meet the rest of the group and socialise. Welcome 'meeting' and we'll have the usual Outdoor lads buffet so please bring something that can be shared between two or three people (try to avoid too much quiche!)

Saturday Day: After breakfast, we’ll head into the surrounding countryside to explore the coastline.  We'll be heading inland to pickup the coastal path north of Tintagel at Ladies Window before heading back, past the castle, to the Hostel along the coast path.

Saturday Evening: Relax, socialise, and chillout. Dinner is included in the event cost.  Please note this is quite a remote hostel so the nearest pub to escape to roughly a 20 min walk away in Tintagel so please feel free if you want to bring any board games to entertain yourself in the evening.

Sunday: After breakfast we need to check out by 11am.  As a final 'stretch of the legs' before the drive home, there will be a short walk up to nearby Trebarwith Cove to the south of the hostel.
