Self catering accommodation in the centre of Tintagel

Dolphins welcomes backpackers of all ages who need an affordable place to crash and meet like minded people. Tintagel is not just a scenic Cornish village full of myth and folklore. It’s a pretty happening place - quirky, but cool!

Hosted by John, Leah and their dog Reggie, the atmosphere at the hostel is welcoming with the local pub right next door. John hosts barbecues during the summer and social gatherings in the Dolphins barn. He can even hook you up with surf lessons.

The hostel sleeps up to 16 guests in double, twin and family private rooms and a 10 bed dorm. There is a welcoming atmosphere in the shared kitchen, the communal areas and the large covered outdoor area. A basic breakfast is provided and cooked breakfasts can be pre-ordered.

Dolphins Backpackers is ten minutes from the South West Coast Path in the centre of the scenic coastal village of Tintagel. It is just five minutes' walk from the Castle famous for King Arthur's legends. Drop offs and pick up in the local area are available by arrangement (for a small donation to charity) and John has offered to give guided tours on request.
