The parish of Advent lies in a peaceful rural area between Bodmin Moor and the North Cornwall coast. It has a population of less than 200, and is dominated by farmland and moorland. There are several hamlets in the parish, including Tresinney, Watergate and Pencarrow. The River Camel passes close to holiday cottages in Advent, and several scenic footpaths run through the parish, including the Moorland Walk, Camelford Way and Watermill Walk. In Tresinney, St Adwen’s is a listed 15th century church with a high, pinnacled tower which houses a ring of four bells. In a field next to the church, there is a fine example of a Cornish cross. North of Advent, the A39, or Atlantic Highway, runs east and west along the North Cornwall coast.
