Marsland Mouth to Hawker's Hut, Morwenstow (2.5km 1.55 miles)

This stage of the coast path contains several steep climbs and descents. Located in the Parish of Morwenstow

1. The walk begins at Marsland Mouth

Marsland Water approaches the sea through the Marsland Valley Nature Reserve and at the footbridge which crosses the stream just above Marsland Beach, you find yourself on the border between Devon and Cornwall - Marsland Mouth . The stream tumbles over the cliff creating one of many waterfalls along the route.

2. Walk in a southerly direction (keeping the sea on your right) uphill onto the 400ft (122m) Marsland Cliff.

Below Marsland Cliff is Gull Rock and Devil's Hole (best viewed from Cornakey Cliff and Yeolmouth Cliff a little later in the walk). The path descends into Litter Mouth where another waterfall tumbles to the beach.

3. Cross the stream then climb the path to Cornakey Cliff.

You can now look back and see the rock arch - Devil's Hole - in Gull Rock.

4. After walking along Yeolmouth Cliff the path descends to Yeol Mouth, where there is another waterfall. The coast path climbs again up onto Henna Cliff - 459ft (140m) high.

Below you the rocks of Westcott Wattle form the southern boundary of Yeol Mouth.

5. The path descends again into a valley. Cross the footbridge across the stream.

The stream becomes a waterfall pouring down onto the rocks below.

6. The coast path now climbs again onto Vicarage Cliff.

In this area, down a steep path on the cliff face is St Morwenna's Well. The path to the well is fairly dangerous so do not attempt it unless you have the correct equipment or unless the access has now been improved.

Walking along Vicarage Cliff, look out for the path down to Hawker's Hut. The Reverend Hawker spent many hours here contemplating the sea, writing and even entertaining guests. Below Hawker's Hut the cliffs are very popular with rock climbers with several climbs around Vicarage Cliffs and the Lucky Hole.

Shipwrecks were very frequent on this section of the coast - at least 150 vessels have been lost on the rocks between Morwenstow and Bude.
