A beautiful quaint church perched on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Full of interesting historical items. Strangely a romantic place.

It is a lovely walk from the castle to the church and there are a few places where you can just sit and admire the views. There are some soft inclines up to the church but there is also a well laid out path. When entering the graveyard there is a sign asking you to be aware of the adders!... More

Nice short walk from Tintagel, down the hill almost to the castle then back up onto a Tarmac path all the way to the church. Very lovely, don't miss the grave of the boy from the Iota, only 14. And beware of adders! Unfortunately I didn't see any. Easy walk back down the road into Tintagel.

Very welcoming feel to the church. They even offered a quiet chapel area for all visitors. It's a great church.

If you are at the castle, it's worth making the detour to the church. When entering the graveyard don't miss the grave of the young boy killed on the shipwreck of the IOTA. You cant miss it, it stands out from all the rest.

We took the long walk up here from tintagel castle and it was so quiet and peaceful. There was actually a funeral taking place at the time so we didn't actually get to go inside but we weren't about to barge in on a funeral so we just sat outside for a while and enjoyed the quiet and then took...

We went in after services on a Sunday and the clergyman and his wife were still there. They were very informative and pleasant to speak with.

An inspiring walk along the cliffs, in view of King Arthur's Castle, brings you to this solidly built church whose list of vicars shown on the wall begins in the 13th Century! Take a moment to sit still, be quiet and absorb the beautiful atmosphere. Eight Centuries or so of prayer leaves its mark on the very stone in the... More

My wife and I visited St Materiana's while walking from Trebarwith to Tintagel. We found the Church welcoming and extremely interesting. Within the church there are some exceptional stained glass windows and a number of interesting stories. My wife took the opportunity to light a candle and to leave a message. We aren't an overly religious couple but found the... More

If you are in Tintagel, please make time to come and see this lovely little C of E church on the headland. Stunning inside, stories of ship wrecks, beautiful memorials and a font nicked from another church (St Julitta, Lanteglos) centuries ago. Its all there!
