Hello and thanks for getting in touch. And thanks for the previous answer. When very young people have come on the tours before, we have used safety reins. This is because there are steep drops at Tintagel castle and lots of steep steps. We could combine a visit there with other places, including the waterfall at St Nectan's and a local beach. We could also go to historic places where it's safe to run around, like some spots on Bodmin Moor where there are stone circles etc.and lots and lots of open space. Lanhydrock House has lovely grounds in addition to the beautiful house open for visitors. I love nearby Restormel Castle, which should fire the imagination of a young person, around knights and daring deeds, just like Tintagel.
If you think that a tour might be a bit too much for your five year old, there are some great taxi services based in Boscastle who can pick you up and drop you back at times suiting you. Do email me for more information.
