Summer Road Trip – Diary – Day Five-Tintagel, Port Isaac & Sennen Cove.

It’s been a busy day today. Lots of walking involved. Our First Stop Tintagel Castle.

After seeing some posts on instagram of the views from the top of the castle and my dad saying we really should visit the new bridge I decided to add it as a stop off.

We packed up early and set off – No time for breakfast today. We had it once we got parked up. That’s the good thing about motorhome life.

Tintagel Castle

We parked up and made our way to the entrance. You can buy tickets to the island at the top of the hill as well as at the bottom. we were quite early in the day and queues were minimal. Then we headed down the hill. Be warned it is very steep and we had decided not to take the pushchair as I wasn’t sure if it was pushchair suitable. There is a landrover service to get you down the hill and back up again. It’s pretty inexpensive too. We actually used it on the way back up the hill.

At the bottom there is a shop and cafe toilets and ticket office. Then you can either head up to the castle at you allotted time slot or down to the beach which is only accessible during low tide. You only need a ticket for the caste and to cross the bridge. When we got there it had just turned high tide so the beach was off our list today.

Getting to the top of the steps to cross the new bridge was quite a challenge again there is a slope if you want to take a pushchair or wheelchair. Mason Our littlest boy twin managed most of the steps up. I’m quite pleased as I thought I might fall if I had to carry him up.

The view from the bridge is well worth it. I think I’m slowly conquering my fear of heights. Over to the castle The kids thought it was great almost like a “real life minecraft”

On to stop number 2 of the day Port Isaac. A must for Doc Martin fans. Again the car park for motorhomes is a walk away from the town and its down quite a steep hill. down the hill is full of pretty little shops and cafe. The beach was full of people enjoying the sunshine. Splashing in sea and rock pools. We only lasted a few minutes of splashing as its rocky underfoot.

We did however managed to climb back up a hill to the doc’s house. Where a few were taking photos.

Sennen Cove

On to our fourth Campsite of the trip. This time it’s Sennen Cove.

This site seems a lot more friendly than the last. Although its still caravan and camping there are still rules to follow but it just seems a lot more child friendly.

On to Saturday and its time for lands end I think today we are heading out on a bus to save trying to park up our motorhome.
