Headland Caravan & Camping Park is a quiet, family run park close to the village centre of Tintagel, within Cornwall's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The park is open from Easter until the end of October, welcoming guests with motorhomes, touring caravans, and tents, as well as offering a number of fully equipped static holiday caravans for hire.
Many of the pitches on the site benefit from an electric hook up, while additional facilities provided at Headland for guests’ comfort and convenience include an amenities block, a laundrette, and chemical waste disposal points. A children’s play area means little ones always have somewhere on-site to run off their energy reserves, while a small shop at the park stocks camping and grocery essentials, including Calor Gas and Camping Gaz. Free Wi-Fi is also provided for the duration of guests’ stay. Although there is no bar and restaurant found on this tranquil site, just take a short walk into Tintagel and you will all you need there.
The park is a great place to stay for families looking for an authentic “getting away from it all” experience, yet at the same time is in close enough proximity to the majestic surroundings that guests can see as much of Cornwall and Devon as they wish.
The site is a short walk from King Arthur’s Castle, which sits on a cliff-top and offers breath taking views out across the sea. There are many other buildings and ruins found close by that also have huge historical and mythical significance. Below the castle on the beach, guests will also find Merlin’s caves, a popular attraction and a great place to spend time exploring. Those staying at the park also have easy access to many great beaches in close proximity to the site, meaning guests don’t need to jump in the car to find a beautiful place to spend the day. The surrounding countryside is the perfect place for enjoying a walk, cycling, horse riding, or finding a stream or river to relax and spend a day fishing in amazing surroundings.
Guests that don’t mind taking a drive will find Boscastle a short distance away. A strategically significant village in medieval times, today it is renowned for its charming harbour area and quaint nature, while fishing trips out to sea are also offered. The cliffs at Boscastle also offer a look at the highest waterfall in the region.
Elsewhere along the coast, popular seaside resorts such as Bude and Newquay are easy to head to, while inland Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park are both brilliant locations for enjoying organised activities as well as for exploring at leisure. The Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and areas of Heritage Coastline are also recommended attractions for guests to discover while staying at Headland Caravan & Camping Park.
Tourists who enjoy spending their holiday time visiting shops, art galleries, leisure centres and museums will enjoy discovering all the coastal towns in this part of Cornwall, and should also consider heading into Exeter and Plymouth for days out.

Tintagel attracts visitors from all over the world, with the main focus on the mysterious ruined castle standing high on the Headland, its commanding defensive aspect adding to the ‘magical’ stories of King Arthur, along with Merlin's cave on the beach.
As well as the castle there are many more fine old sites apparently relating to King Arthur's mystical past, including King Arthur's Great Halls which fully explains the legend in all its glory. Other historical buildings include 'The Old Post Office' and St Materianna's church on the cliffs.
The Old Post Office Tintagel is strategically placed being only three miles from Boscastle, with its renowned harbour and fishing village, and in walking distance of the beautiful St Nectans Glen and the Rocky Valley with its hieroglyphic carvings. It is ideally situated to explore Bodmin Moor and indeed the whole of Cornwall and Devon.
Trebarwith Strand For the sun worshippers there are several safe bathing beaches nearby, including Tintagel Cove, Bossiney, Benoath and Trebarwith Strand (about 2 miles away), renowned for its rock pools and surfing. All the beaches are completely covered at high tide.

Boscastle is just 3 miles away and is one of England’s finest old harbours remaining almost the same for centuries. Sea trips can be taken from here as the tide allows, and the cliff walks to Pentargon where you can see Cornwall’s highest waterfall are quite dramatic. This area is Thomas Hardy Country to an extent, for he married the rectors daughter of St Juliot’s Church, which is tucked away in the Valency Valley, another deeply wooded walk with yet another church "Minster" amongst tropical plants.
