There are calls for English Heritage to reopen Tintagel Castle over the winter.

For the first time it is closed Monday to Friday.

But nearby businesses say it is hitting them hard.

Mark Forbes runs a nearby restaurant...

"People who are coming to Tintagel specifically to go the castle obliviously will be disappointed and probably won't hang around to have a meal and will probably go elsewhere. So, I think it's bad news for all the local businesses, the shops, the pubs and the restaurants"

“The National Trust Post Office normally closes during the winter but in addition the Tintagel Tourist Information closed on the 1st September I think, so really the outlook for Tintagel businesses is not good at the moment"
