The war memorial is very poignant and the church and church yard grounds are beautiful and well kept. Dogs should be kept on a lead when walking through the grounds. Beautiful building, right by the sea - a good place to sit and admire the...More

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 👍

The church, the grounds, and the views are still spectacular, but the crowds just ruin everything about Tintagel for me on this visit. I was in the church meditating with one other person and BANG! In comes some old Italian ladies just blabbering as loud...More

May 6, 2017 - While touring around Tintagel, our guide took us to see St. Materiana's Church. The Church exterior is an example of a Norman area design with some Saxon features. It received a new roof during the late 1800s which also changed its...More

This church is located a few minutes walk from the upper kiosk at Tintagel Castle and you approach it vis the stunning cliff walk. It is picturesque and interesting though hardly an exceptional church. There is a booklet of its history for £1. The Norman...More
