Tintagel Castle & Merlin’s Cave
Tintagel Castle which is well worth a visit no matter where you’re glamping in Cornwall but for those lucky enough to be staying at Wigwam Holidays Great Tregath, it’s a short five mile journey along the B3263. This whole area of Cornwall is steeped in Arthurian legend and it’s said that Merlin once lived in these caves.
St Nectan’s Glen
Recognised as both an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and as an appointed Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), this is an absolute must visit for nature enthusiasts. Shallow pools, sparkling waterfalls an abundance of rare plants create a beautiful woodland walk. A lovely cafe sits in the walls of the ruined chapel and offers a perfect view of the river, and the local bird life.
Built in the 1700s, you’ll find it hard not to shiver at some of the gruesome tales you’ll hear as you pick your way through the dank corridors and cells of this old, forbidding jail. During excavation work in 2005, an execution pit was uncovered and has since been restored back to full working order. Exhibitions, tours and even a cafe make for a very unusual, but highly interesting afternoon. For those made of sterner stuff, Bodmin Jail run after dark ghost tours.
Padstow Fishing Port
Among the many picturesque fishing ports all along North Cornwall’s superb coastline, Padstow must be one of the best. Not only is it renowned for its crab fishing produce but it is where the celebrity chef Rick Stein continues to live and oversea his seafood restaurant for part of the year. Padstow is a working port with much to see as well as browse the numerous artisan shops and boutiques, not to mention the famous Cornish Cream tea.
Trebarwith Strand Beach
This is our local beach and is a very short journey from Wigwam® Holidays Great Tregath. The main beach is only accessible when the tide is out, so make sure you check tide times or alternatively enjoy a stunning cliff top view and a hot/cold drink and/or a fine meal at the Port William Public House directly overlooking the beach. There is plentiful car parking and the beach is easily accessible along a short but slightly sloping rocky gully, and so has an adventurous feel to it. Relaxers can enjoy a picnic and a good book, while the more curious poke around for deep sea treasures in the abundance of rockpools. It’s a popular area for experienced surfers too, so there’s plenty of interesting people watching to be done if the book you brought isn’t holding your attention.
