A lovely church to visit. Very "high" Church - i.e. Votive candles in front of a statue of the Virgin Mary and a side chapel with 'reserved Sacrament'. Also located very high! Fabulous views all around.

We were here at sunrise.. although overcast it was a stunning location. There is a car park but the lane to it is narrow. You can walk to it from the village without to much effort. Well worth it for the views.

Lovely walk from the town where we stayed in the old tea shop, through a field and across a road to get to the church which was amazing and full of history. The graves were so old.

A great place to start a coastal walk from. There is National Trust car park by the church. The church is open everyday and is only a 10 minute walk from Tintagel Castle
