About Camelot Castle Hotel
Tintagel is the birthplace of the legend of King Arthur. Camelot Castle sits high on the starkly beautiful cliffs at Tintagel, enjoying panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, the rugged Cornish countryside and the ruins of Tintagel, considered by many to be the site where legend and myth transformed into history.
Camelot Castle, owned and managed by business couple John and Irina Mappin and well known artist Ted Stourton, is a slice of history, loving restored to its former glory and one of the best spots for a Cornish holiday. The hotel is pet friendly and a dog lover’s haven for holiday makers who consider their pets to be part of the family. It is precisely the welcoming attitude and demeanour of the owners and the team at Camelot that make a stay there so enchanting.
It’s an ideal base from which to discover the bounty of Cornwall. Visit the world famous Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, many of the National Trust homes and the Light Box which is an experience not to be missed, at Camelot Castle itself.
It was mere chance that led this celebrity trio to purchase Camelot Castle and set about renovating, restoring and pouring every ounce of their passion, talent and commitment into the future of Camelot Castle. Ted Stourton, the popular English artist had long been searching for a venue that would serve both as a home and, more importantly as a home to the future of artistic endeavour in England. Irina Mappin is a well known business woman, and patron of the arts and believes firmly in the education of young artists and giving them the chance to blossom and develop without the attendant financial pressure. A chance visit to Cornwall, a meander round the castle itself and the legend of Camelot was born again.
