We stayed just one night and absolutely loved every moment of it. The place was impeccably clean and decorated beautifully, modern yet with a twist of Victorian elegance, and Julie and Peter were the most gracious and friendly hosts. Our room faced the Cornish sea and castle, and waking up to the view was amazing. The location was perfect for... More

This is our second stay and now I couldn't imagine coming to glorious Tintagel and staying anywhere else. I have stayed in 5* hotels that don't match the spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished rooms and top class service of the Avalon. Peter and Julie are lovely people who do everything possible to ensure their guests enjoy their stay. Breakfast is imaginative... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while walking the coast path. Very welcoming. Agree with all the other glowing reviews. We stayed at some very expensive hotels on other nights as they are often the only ones who will take 1 night bookings in August, but Avalon had the best breakfast and service. Nowhere else whisked our wets boots and coats... More

We had a perfect stay...! Room with a stunning view over tintagel castle and the ocean. The garden is very nice, you can relax enjoying the same view from there. Breakfast is heaven....I've never been in a B&B were they serve à la carte breakfast....just splendid!

My wife and I spent a very relaxing couple of days at the Avolon in July 2015. The house itself and the rooms were spotlessly clean and decorated very tastefully. The bed was large and very comfortable. The host Julie was great, inviting and approachable. The breakfast menu was varied and the breakfasts themselves fantastic, and it's not a problem... More

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
