Blachford House is a large grade II* listed country house standing in parkland on the northwest edge of the village. 
The Church of St Michael's is Cornwood's parish church.
It was from Cornwood vicarage, in 1785, that Reverend Thomas Vivian wrote Revelation explained, a pioneering attempt by the Established Church to write about the Book of Revelation for a general audience. Thomas Vivian believed his subject matter fell naturally into three sections; the first dealt with verifiable historical events, the second dealt with contemporary and continuing events that characterised a church that had departed from "the Simplicity of the Gospel" and, finally, prophecies for the future. The book was dedicated to the Bishop of Exeter, published in Plymouth and distributed from London, Bath and Exeter.
