Morwenstow:  The church is interesting with much of the original Norman building still remaining.

Week St. Mary:  Its history dates from the Domesday when it was probably a religious centre.

St Gennys:  A picturesque little village on the side of a cliff above the small seaside resort of Crackington Haven.  The churchyard is so steep that its path is almost level with the roof.  Most of the church is as it was in Norman times.
Poughill:  Winner of the best kept village on a number of occasions.  The church of St Olaf is well worth a visit.

Summary:  A lovely area to spend a holiday at any time of the year
