Welcome to Camelot 

Glastonbury is closely associated with the Arthurian legend and another English site is Tintagel,
said to be the birthplace of the legendary King Arthur and the location of a remarkable hotel called Camelot Castle.
Owners John Mappin and Ted Stourton believe that there is a strong creative force at Camelot that it is bringing peace to the world and they have taken positive steps to
make it a haven for all artists, musicians and writers.

The mystical attraction of Tintagel is not a new phenomena;
Turner painted at Tintagel, Elgar composed his Second Symphony and Alfred Tennyson wrote “Idylls of the King”

This passage from “Idylls of the King” is part of "The Passing of Arthur "

But now farewell. I am going a long way
With these thou seëst—if indeed I go
(For all my mind is clouded with a doubt)
To the island-valley of Avilion;
Where falls not hail, or rain, or any snow,
Nor ever wind blows loudly; but it lies
Deep-meadow’d, happy, fair with orchard lawns
And bowery hollows crown’d with summer sea,
Where I will heal me of my grievous wound.
