This former quarryman's cottage stands on Glebe Cliff, Dunderhole Point south west of the village of Tintagel, trying to nestle into the landscape for some shelter from the winds and rain of the Atlantic Ocean. For some years now it has been used by the YHA as Tintagel Youth Hostel. This Geographer arrived at St Materiana's Church just as the sun had gone down and it was a little tricky finding the correct path across the clifftop, not having been to the place before. It is best not to be about here in the hours of darkness, especially if you've seen the view from seaward.
