After a beautiful walk from the ruins of the castle, we got to this adorable oats client church where the whole ambience is full of nostalgia. The graveyard has very ancient tombs and the landscape around is entirely dramatic. Loved it all! It's a place for respectful visitors though.

Lovely walk fro Tintagel to this church on the cliffs. From the church you can easily walk to the castle or go the other way to Trebarwith. Stunning coastal scenery.

If you visit Tintagel for the castle, its well worth deviating towards the church which is only a short distance from the castle via the coastal path. Not only is it a quaint and interesting church and grounds, the views of the coast and castle are second to none!
