Barras Nose Walk
The Avalon is the perfect place to base yourself if you’d like to explore the South West Coast Path around Tintagel. The South West Coast Path website is a great source of inspiration when it comes to deciding where to explore and what trails to follow.
To start you off, here’s a simple 1.5 mile circular walk around Barras Nose, starting and ending at The Avalon.
A Simple Circular Walk around Tintagel
With The Avalon Hotel behind you, turn left and walk along the main road to join the footpath by the Headland Camping and Caravan Park.
The footpath leads down a track, across a field and through a gate to meet the coast path above Gullastem. Take the coast path out towards Barras Nose and follow the sign to Tintagel Castle.
Cross the stream and follow the wide track (steep but suitable for pushchairs) past the English Heritage shop and toilets, and back up to Tintagel village. As you come back into the village turn left and walk along Atlantic Road back to The Avalon Hotel’s Castle View Café for a cream tea!
