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 Valleys.
Walk the South West Coast Path
Arguably one of the most spectacular walks in the county, the coast path offers the chance to ramble along a well-trodden path, while soaking up the spectacular sights and breathing in the fresh sea air. Head in the direction of Bude for a sight of the clifftop satellites of GCHQ Bude, an unexpected view amid the beauty of the cliffs.
This circular walk gives you the chance to fully appreciate just why Robert Hawker loved the area so much. Beginning at the Rectory Farm Tea Rooms, head into the churchyard, following the path to the right past the vicarage and down into Morwenna Valley. Turn left at the way marker sign for the coast path following along the length of the valley, through meadows and woods, until you reach Vicarage Cliff and the coast path. Upon joining the coast path, turn left and ascend the cliff to the farmland above. Soon you’ll come across a kissing gate, at this point you can either continue on towards Hawker’s Hut, or return to the Rectory Farm Tea Rooms for a cuppa and a slice of cake!
Why not finish off your day of walking with a homecooked meal at the local 13th Century pub, The Bush Inn?
