A delightful and truly atmospheric church, simple, modest, powerful… set in one of the prettiest churchyards in Devon.

Inside simplicity dominates, but not plainness, definitely not that; simple stone, simple medieval screen, simple benchends, simple roofboss…
Inside this church is an astonishing range of little treasures, from medieval stained glass to beautiful Devon carvings. Stunning stuff.
Inside is delightfully sparse, we can see the bare bones of the church, like the rock strata in the local cliffs, and looking closely the details start to come together until we gasp in love.
A small parish in north-east Devon, a minor note in the grand symphony of Devon churches but, like all minor notes, a dollop of beauty that would be missed if not here.
A very pretty church in such a neat and well-mown churchyard, it is like a little country church out of an old child’s picture book. Delicious.
The church has a magnificent old tower, possibly twelfth or thirteenth century, very rare for Devon, and a spectacular twelfth century rustic Norman doorway
