Found the church by chance when walking up the road out of St Mawes and saw the sign, lovely little church at the back, with wonderful views over the bay. Very nice church inside worth a visit.

Steep walk up hill, perfect seat just outside giving gorgeous view of the bay. Church had small charity stalls with some interesting items of local vintage.

Provided you can manage to climb the steep hill then a visit to this church is a must if you visit St Mawes. Great views over the Percuil river and the interior is very interesting.
