4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

A pleasant diversion and well worth a visit. Simple and plain, in keeping with Cornish Churches.

“Seen everywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

The long lasting architecture of the church can be seen throughout the village. The inside is still intact.

“St. M's Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Wonderful timbers in the roof, though not old, just interesting. Place had a very calm feeling inside, despite the raging storm outside.

“beautiful little church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

this church is on the way from the yha hostel to tintagel town if you are walking. i had walked past it a number of times at first, and then saw some people coming out of it and decided to go in and have a look. there is a guide available for 1 pound, you put the money into a hole on the wall, and also any money to pay for any little bits and pieces you might want. the site is unmanned, unless of course they are having a service. its lovely to think we all can be trusted to to this properly! the church itself is in a stunning location, has lots of history inside and some good stories about some of the headstones in the graveyard. i really enjoyed spending about 45 mins - 1 hour in here.
