What a grand little place with a wonderful view and comfy rooms! Even the back yard is charming and I took my pot of tea and biscuits out to enjoy while I watched the sun set. All amenities are provided and Julie and Peter are the perfect hosts. The breakfast was first rate. All in all a truly enjoyable visit,... More

Great B & B! We stayed in what I imagine is a smaller room on top floor but it had everything we need, it's the little extras that makes this accommodation good like fresh coffee sachets and squash sticks! Nice shower and hand gel in bathroom and decent hairdryer! Lovely welcoming hosts and breakfast amazing! Try the porridge!! Gorgeous view... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Avalon for a week during our trip to Cornwall and I can't fault the place or Julie and Peter. We stayed for one night in the double village room, it was small but perfectly formed, however if you are staying for more than a couple of nights I would recommend staying in a... More

Firstly, i cannot praise Peter, Julie and their family high enough. I've split the review into 3 main sections. ***OWNERS*** From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome by Peter, Julie. Although we arrived 5 hours earlier than check in due to needing to miss rush hour, we were told we could have the room from 11.... More

The Avalon has everything you could wish for and more ..... Julie and Peter are warm and friendly hosts, the accommodation is spotlessly clean, freshly decorated, tastefully furnished and in a quiet location. We were on the second floor, room 6, with a wonderful sea facing view. The bed was very comfortable and there were facilities for making hot drinks... More

We only stayed one night but what a lovely time we had. We had a sea view room (#6) which was just lovely. Comfortable large bed (queen sized by Canadian sizing so 60" wide). The entire place was immaculately clean. Lovely linens, tasteful decor and a fantastic view, it could not have been any better. The breakfast was also of... More

We stayed at Avalon for a long weekend from Friday to Monday. My partner had already been there before but it was a fist time for me. From the moment we arrived we were greated with a lovely smile and kind welcome. All the time we stayed there you could feel the personal touches around the building, in the room... More

We spent one night on our trip to Cornwall and we strongly recommend the house, the hosts and everything there. We changed our plans to sleep there, and It has been a complete success. We Will be back for sure

This is what all B&Bs should strive to be. Tastefully decorated and immaculately clean you won't find better in Tintagel. From the welcome tea and biscuits on arrival to the impressive breakfast, and everything imbetween, this is the perfect place to stay if you want luxury at affordable prices. The Avalon was not full the day we arrived so we... More
