My partner and I were on a trip around Cornwall, and decided to stay in Tintagel. This B&B is in a lovely position in the town, and has the most wonderful views across the cliffs and sea. The rooms are clean, the couple who run it are lovely and there is the most amazing breakfast choice. There is also free... More

We spent two delightful nights at The Avalon and loved every moment. Our top floor room with ensuite bath was immaculate and newly updated, with a wonderful sea view. The breakfast each morning was beyond compare -- better than what is typically offered in a five star hotel. The best part of all was the fantastic hospitality provided by the... More

We stayed for two lovely nights in this immaculate, homey and peaceful residence overlooking the fields of Tintagel that flow to the sea. The guest house is solid, quiet and in the central part of the town. Peter and Julie are instant welcoming friends who take the time to remember your name, chat and offer helpful suggestions to enhance your... More

The location and view are excellent. We had one of the smaller rooms, but it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is amazing and worth the trip on its own. Add to that the fact that Julie and Peter are the most charming hosts! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable and idyllic getaway.

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
