This church is located in a truly spectacular setting high up on the cliffs at Tintagel. The church is ancient with a splendid interior, especially the stained glass windows. There are truly ancient gravestones and a dry stone wall forms the perimeter of the sight....More

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.

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.
