We could see this building from our holiday let in Treligga so we visited out of curiosity and are glad we did, Whilst we visited as part of a trip to the castle it is an easy walk from Tintagel town or a short drive with parking available. The old church is full of character and history and whilst its... More

We walked from Tintagel Town to the church and it was a simple walk following the signs. Although the church looks like "normal" church we were lucky as someone of importance was in the building and we got a full history lesson on the Very Old Church. It lacks the thunder of some visits but the calm and history made... More

a lovely peaceful old building. Received a warm welcome from a cleaning lady and her dog! Poignant memorials. Close enough to the coast paths for a detour, plenty of parking spaces, but also easily accessible on foot along the coast path.

After we left the castle we walked to the little church on the hill that we could see from our room. It was a lovely walk and the church and its grave yard were very peaceful. I am not a religious person but it was beautiful on the inside. You are allowed in and they want you to look around.... More

Lots of character and you are free to roam in the church. It was raining so we spent some time here exploring. It is a lovely church and do take time to read the memorials and dedications. There is also an extensive grave yard with the marker for the young boy who drowned in the 1800's that is still well... More

The walk or drive up to the church is well worth it. This is an exposed site so gets a bit windy to say the least but easy access to part of the coastal path enables the less able to get stunning view of the cliffs and the island forming part of Tintagel Castle
