All reviews sir john golf balls buried here daymer bay poet laureate sand dunes final resting place moving memorial car park peaceful haven slight detour camel estuary rock ferry sat nav lovely walk stunning location well worth the visit
Worth the walk over the dunes and the golf course. Simple but beautiful little church and the resting place of Sir John Betjeman. A little church that was nearly lost to the dunes until the mid-sized 1800s.
This is a beautiful church and really worth a visit. We drove to the Daymar Beach car park and took the lovely footpath to the church. Be careful walking across the golf course watch out for the balls!!! It's a stunning little church in an...More
A pretty church, unfortunately surrounded by a golf course. The walk to get there takes about 1 hour from Rock, or 20 from Daymer Bay. Walking through the dunes to get there is also pretty, with good views down the estuary. The church itself is...More
Talk about a hidden gem -we walked for about half an hour from the ferry, across the golf course and then came to this beautiful, peaceful old church, where Sir John Betjeman is buried. A real treasure. An inspirational spot. Well worth the visit.
Lovely walk from Polzeath or Rock,the path from the beach can be confusing,please don't be put off by the golf course the path is marked by white stones you may need to keep your wits about you for flying golf balls,the church is small and...More
It's a mutual compliment that the remains of Laureate John Betjeman and St Enodoc Church are situated in common comfort. I don't think it possible that any environment such as this one could produce more pleasing and peaceful an atmosphere. It is common for us...More
Burial place of poet Sir John Betjeman and located on the walk named after him which runs between Rock and Polzeath.
Popular spot for weddings and I heard that you need to book two years ahead for a Wedding here! Surrounded by natural beauty.
My wife's great-uncle's ashes were scattered at this church and he has a rather nice plaque which we wanted to visit. The walk to get there is bracing and tinged with danger (beware flying golf balls!). The church itself is tiny but beautifully formed and...More

I don't think it woudl be the easiest trip as there are a couple fo sort steep/narrow sections. I think you could get up to the churchyard, but the archway into the churchyard itself has a litle bench/wall about two feet high in the centre, so I'm not sure that a mobility scooter would fit through there.
I agree with the last answer but note the last part of the walk is on grass whichever way you choose to go. It's short as for a golf course. If you can't walk far on uneven ground the easiest is to park in the Daymer Bay... More
I agree with the last answer but note the last part of the walk is on grass whichever way you choose to go. It's short as for a golf course. If you can't walk far on uneven ground the easiest is to park in the Daymer Bay car park, up the road and then follow the signs. You may be able to park on the road side but unlikely at this time of the year.
