Wow - spectacular - not something I typically say about churches
Jul. 2021
This is well worth a visit. It is a spectacular place - fantastic gardens, quaint church, graves everywhere, next to a creek. Feels like you are on a Disney set...

Beautiful church and lush gardens
May 2021 • Couples
We walked to the church from St Mawes, which took just over an hour, and it was definitely worth the time and effort! The church is nestled in a quiet cove and surrounded by lush gardens - it’s quintessentially English but also feels like it could be in another world.

Reserve your spot
Jun. 2021
We parked at the top of the hill next to the main road and walked down to the church. It is beautiful with peaceful gardens including benches. Walking out the other side of the church leads to a walk next to the creek and a small marina. This is one of the most idyllic churches and cemeteries that I have visited and a must do if in the area. You can park nearer to the church and there is a small cafe.

Church on the waterfront surrounded by lush gardens.
May 2021 • Couples
We visited on the way back from St Mawes which is only 3 miles away we would have walked coastal path unfortunately time was restricted. It was early evening when we arrived and the church was very tranquil and serene on the waterfront surrounded by palm trees and lush gardens. Definitely worth visiting to see this church in very pretty surroundings. Parking is free but church advise a £2 donation which I was happy to do so after my lovely visit.

Peaceful
May 2021
The weather was very windy but here it was sheltered and it felt so calm. There is a lovely walk through the cemetery to the church and the inside the church it is very simple but well worth a visit.

Such a beautiful and tranquil place! Fully sheltered from the prevailing wind
May 2021 • Couples
On a very windy day in St Agnes we decided to visit the beautiful St Just In Roseland Church and Churchyard TR2 5JD. We drove there via the iconic King Harry Ferry TR3 6QJ and were there in about 30/40 minutes. Such a beautiful and tranquil place! Fully sheltered from the prevailing wind (that almost blew us over in nearby St Mawes!) Fully sheltered from the wind and felt so tranquil with beautiful flowers and plants in such a picturesque location with steep paths. Watch out for the cheeky little friendly, almost tame robins that pose for your camera on tomb stones as you pass! Beautiful but simple village church. Entry is free. Parking is normally easy (might be crowded in peak season) but first drive to the churchyard entrance where there are a few parking places just opposite and only if full need you work your way back to the main car park up the road. Very convenient and well-kept public toilets just beside the churchyard entrance and a very nice tea room opposite the main car park. Trelissick Gardens nearby.

One of the prettiest churches in Cornwall near St Mawes
Apr. 2021 • Couples
A lovely church by the water in a lush green environment with an abundance of flowers and shrubs.

Peaceful and spiritually uplifting.

You can either drive there or make it part of a circular walk from St Mawes.

Delightful church
Sep. 2020 • Couples
We visited this church during our stay on the Roseland Peninsula and it was so beautiful that we returned again.

We were fortunate to find the church open for our first visit, due to the Covid restrictions, and we had a superb walk around the interior. It is not highly decorated, but its simplicity was beautiful.

At our second visit the bells were ringing and I wish we’d gone down straightaway, as there was a wedding. It was obviously only a very small affair, due to the restrictions, but what a glorious place to get married!

The church grounds are magnificent, with tropical plants abounding and gravestones going back centuries. The churchyard is very well kept and was fascinating to walk round.

We sat for quite a while, on both occasions, on a seat overlooking the creek, watching the tide come in - at quite a pace! It was so tranquil and heavenly that we sat there, both times, longer than we intended, but boy, was it good for our souls!! A magical, must-see church and churchyard.

Simply breathtaking
Sep. 2020 • Family
The churchyard described as ‘the most beautiful in the world’ is just that. A palm filled tropical woodland with green moss and fern it winds down the hill of tiered graves of beautiful calligraphy and Celtic crosses. Wirth taking time to meander through. At the bottom is this small picturesque church steeped in history on the waters edge . So atmospheric and peaceful it was a truly magical setting that made you want to linger soaking in every bit . Truly memorable and a joy to see. Then head on up the slope for a slap up cream tea at Mrs T’s at the top. PERFECT afternoon!
