Why a Tintagel cottage?
The village of Tintagel is known as King Arthur Country. Legend has it that King Arthur died at Slaughterbridge near Ford, but his spirit returned to Tintagel, where his fortress once stood. The current ruins are said to have been built on the same site in 1140AD by Earl Richard of Cornwall.
