Things to do in Morwenstow


A rambler's paradise, Morwenstow and the surrounding area are replete with routes across a variety of scenic landscapes, from the craggy coastline to woodlands and picturesque, Tidna Valley. You may even stumble across the sci-fi esque sight of the clifftop satellites of GCHQ Bude.


Just south of Morwenstow lie the stunning stretches of Duckpool and Sandymouth, while Stanbury Mouth Beach is prime territory for a picnic or spot of rock pooling.

Harvest Festival

The parish's famous poet-vicar, Robert Hawker was creator of Cornwall's 'Trelawney' anthem and England's harvest festival tradition, which is celebrated here with aplomb.


Hawker’s Hut

Visit Robert Hawker’s diminutive driftwood dwelling nestled in the cliffs below his old vicarage – another must-see that features hand-built chimneys replicating the church towers he treasured throughout his life.

Morwenstow Church

A marvel of architecture, the historic church houses a range of fine carvings, tomb chests, memorials and stained glass windows; while in the graveyard lies dozens of smugglers and mariners - look out for the white figurehead of the Caledonia: the gravestone of a shipwrecked captain.

Henna Cliff

One of the best vantage points in the area affords spectacular seascapes where - standing atop Cornwall’s highest cliff at 144 metres - you can gain a bird’s eye view of Lundy Island and distant, south Wales coast.
