Nice church in the middle of nice nature. It is very windy out there but it is also a very good way to enter the Tintagle Castle. After a 5min walk you get to the entrance where are not so many people 👍

Didn't really go into the church. Didn't figureit was open. Were there for the views and to our luck, there were no crowds! Yeah! We went back at Sunset for the amazing views. Given the earlier reviews and the crowds, we must have just gotten...More
