  St Mabyn is a hilltop village that is reached by narrow lanes. It consists of old cottages gathered around the village pub.  St Mabyn is a very pretty village located on the edge of  Bodmin Moor about 3 miles east of the town of Wadebridge. Both the parish and village are named after St Mabena. whom is female and supposedly one of 24 children of a 5th century Welsh King called Brychan Brycheiniog.

The St Mabyn parish church is Anglican and is dedicated to Saint Mabena (474-550 AD). Saint Mabyn's day is celebrated on 18th November. The tower of the church is seventy five feet high and the belfry has a ring of eight bells that allow 5,030 changes to be rung. The earliest recorded Priest in charge was Roger de Warlegan 1267.

The popular St Mabyn Inn dates from the 17th century, and began life as a farmhouse, then became an alehouse, and still retains an old world charm and excellent real ales.

St Mabyn's standing stone was broken up for gateposts in 1850 and a piece was re-located to Longstone crossroad on the western edge of Bodmin Moor where it now shares an area of ground with the Penwine Cross.
