Restormel Castle was once the romantic stronghold of Edward, the Black Prince. Set high on a motted mound, this splendid castle ruin is one of the former strongholds of the Dukes of Cornwall.

It was used as a miniature palace and provided lavish accommodation for the Duke and his honoured guests, from which they could look out over a large deer park.

In springtime the banks are covered in daffodils and bluebells and in the summer the site is one of the best picnic spots in Cornwall, boasting superb panoramic views of the peaceful countryside
