Church Cove is a hamlet in the civil parish of Landewednack in Cornwall, England. Its nearest town is Helston, which lies approximately 10.1 miles (16.3 km) north-west from the hamlet. The parish is notable for being the most southern point on British mainland.[1]

Church Cove lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Almost a third of Cornwall has AONB designation, with the same status and protection as a National Park.

Parts of the hamlet lie within Caerthillian to Kennack SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).[2]
