You can see the church from Tintagel Castle and somehow invites you to visit. It is possible to access the church from the village which is more relaxing but also from the castle which is a more exciting and scenic walk. The church is wonderfully located and offers peace and quiet after the strong winds of Tintagel Castle. The church... More

This place has some really strong energy! I got zapped big time there. If you aren't into that, you will still enjoy the peace and tranquility here. It's packed with natural beauty.

An interesting church, recently had a wedding. Good to have candles to light and a prayer request book to write in. View from outside the church is amazing. Wonderful stained glass windows and a very interesting old font.

If you haven't had enough walking at the castle take the steep, long stairs up to the cliff top path that goes to this church. There are awesome views of the castle below you and after a short walk you arrive at this lovely, well maintained 11th-13th century Norman church with Saxon features. It is easier to walk the road...

Small, old church. Very nice setting and an easy walk down the coast path or from in town. There are some booklets and cards available at a small cost.

This is a lovely historical church which has been very well maintained. There are many fascinating gravestones in the churchyard and inside shows the remains of paintings to the walls along with Medieval tombs. Easy access by road with free parking or you can walk up from either the castle or the village.

Perched above the village of Tintagel this Norman church is well worth the short climb and walk. I recommend going there at sunset as the view is spectacular, the Celtic crosses and the gravestones scattered in the churchyard along with the weathered old church and the reflection of the sea at sunset is not to be missed, we took plenty...

An amazing Norman Church built around 1100ad and untouched. The roof is a beautiful piece of carpentry, and there is a fantastic Norman font at the rear of the church. In the churchyard is the grave of a 14 year old cabin boy who died in a shipwreck on the coast in 1893, there is also the whole moving story... More
