  This peaceful village, full of lovely thatched cottages, lies near the mouth of the River Gannel and looks out towards Newquay.

St. Carantacus is reputed to have established an oratory here in the 5th century.

The mainly Norman church has fine carvings and a set of old-fashioned stocks.

Nearby is dramatic Kelsey Head and a cliff top Iron Age fort.
