Cubert

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide


Cubert, in Cornish Lannowynn, is a parish and village on the north coast of Cornwall near Newquay

The parish is named after its patron, the Welsh missionary, Saint Cubertus/St Cubert/St Cuthbert. St Cubert and the patron of the adjoining parish of Crantock, St Carantoc, are believed to have travelled together to this part of Cornwall bringing Christianity to the area. After his missionary work, St Cubert returned to Wales where he became abbot of his monastery and died in 775.

In earlier centuries the parish was known as St Cubert but this fell out of use in the 16th or 17th century.

The parish church dates from the 14th century and is dedicated to St Cubert. It has a tower with a spire.
Over the centuries he church as been enlarged and undergone restoration - in the 1400s a south aisle was added and in the 1800s restorative work was undertaken after the church was struck by lightning.

There are several hamlets within the parish - Ellenglaze, mentioned in the Domesday Book as Elil; Treveal and Tresean.

There are two wells within the parish and it has been speculated which gave its name to Holywell Bay within the parish. One of the natural springs can only be visited at low tide as it is in a cave on the north-eastern side of the beach below Kelsey Head. The other is located inland between the churchtown and the coast and is dedicated to St Cubert. It can be found tucked away in a hollow with two stone arches near the golf course.
