Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

Egloshayle is a small historic village standing on the North bank of the River Camel.

Those interested in Cornish history will find much to interest them in Egloshayle.

The name Egloshayle is thought to derive from the Cornish words 'eglos' and 'heyl' meaning 'church on an estuary'

A Holy Well dedicated to St Wenna once stood here. The Well structure is no longer visible but its water still flows to the River Camel.

The church which is dedicated to St Petroc has a fine 15th Century tower which is over 80ft/24m tall.

Egloshayle's charming public house dates back to to the 12th Century.

Two Wheel Headed Wayside Crosses can be seen in the churchyard. One was brought here from Dunmere Wood and looks to have been used as a gatepost for a period of time.

The manor of Pencarrow within the Parish of Egloshayle was held for many years by descendants of William the Conqueror. For more information see Pencarrow.
