If you are in need to explore more of the UK countryside and want to see amazing view and be somewhere peaceful. May I recommend Tintagel Coast.
Anyway, on my last day, we (when I say, I don’t mean husband and I like it usually is, – I mean I went to with WMGT group) went for a hike around Tintagel coast.
Tintagel is a small village north of Cornwall and I can only describe it as ‘quaint’. I didn’t see much of the village – as we were more focus on the hike – but it’s essentially a small quaint English village; complete with its own castle (which we didn’t explore – boo) and a witch shop. No that wasn’t a typo – yes it has a witch shop, named Willow Moon, I didn’t go in – but made it my mission to go back sometime and visit.
I was more focus on the hike and exploring Tintagel Coast. Now let me be honesty with you, I haven’t done a hike for a long time. Ok it has been quite a few years since I did my last hike. So I was a little out of practice but I’m a good little walker so I couldn’t see any problem with doing it.
Now the thing with Cornwall, especially the area surrounding Tintagel is that it very hilly. It not a flat piece of land – but very bumpy and very steep. Which is good as you do get very pretty view – but my god walking up a steep hill does kills your legs.
Well it killed my legs and I was one of those people in a group who was lagging behind and having to take a break to catch my breath.
Maybe I need to do more hikes to get into my groove.
I thought I would show you the photos I shot while on the Tintagel coast hike. And you would see what I mean when I say ‘spectacular view’. As it views like this isn’t something you see every day. The only thing that made me a little sad was not being able to share it with Richard, but I have made it my mission to go back with him as some point in the future.
The dog in the photos belong to one of the girl in the group I was with. It a cocker poodle and genuinely look like a real live teddy bear. He was adorable and so well behave on the hike.
I hope these photos does encourage you to visit Tintagel Coast and to see the views for yourself.
