A holiday rental home or holiday cottage in St Blazey, Cornwall is less than a mile away from the famous Eden Project

St Blazey or as it is otherwise known, St Blaise is a small town in Mid Cornwall. It was once known for tin and copper mining and more recently for china clay. St Blazey adjoins St Blazey Gate, Biscovey and is close to St Austell. St Blaise, a martyr is the patron saint of this town and his feast day is celebrated on 3rd February.

Places to holiday in St Blazey, Cornwall

Although well known for its mining and clay history, tourism has moved to the forefront of this delightful town and estate agents in the area are busy letting cottages that once belonged to miners and clay workers for self-catering cottage holidays. The surrounding area has a number of campsites, B&B and a few hotels, but camping is not everyone's idea of fun and a holiday cottage gives much more freedom than a hotel.

Self catering accommodation in a Cornish cottage gives you much more space than a hotel room, has all mod cons, often a garden and some allow dogs, which all in all allows for a more home away from home experience. One of the reasons for the rise in popularity of St Blazey was the building of the Eden Project with its extraordinary Biomes, approximately a mile from the town, which attracts large numbers of visitors all year round.

Other attractions near by are the Treffry Viaduct, Luxulyan Valley, the China Clay Country Park and the Clay Trails of Cornwall and Pine Lodge Gardens. St Blazey is based centrally for exploring the rest of Cornwall and has something for everyone, whether you are interested in walking the coastal path, sea fishing, coarse fishing, golfing, horse riding, heritage, water sports, museums, art galleries or to visit the fine surfing beaches, like Perranporth, Newquay, Polzeath and Padstow on the north coast.

Things to do in St Blazey

St Blazey has three fish and chip shops, the Pack Horse and the Four Lords pubs, restaurants, general stores, garage, gallery and other shops. St Blazey Cricket Club is based at Middleway and the town also has a football team. The medieval town of Lostwithiel is three miles away. In the 13th century it was the capital of Cornwall but now it is a charming market town.

The ruins of Restormel Castle stands high on a mound surrounded by a mote and was once the strong hold of the Black Prince and then the Dukes of Cornwall. Other towns and villages close by include Lanlivery, Luxulyan, Lanivet, Boconnoc, Bugle, St Winnow, Tywardreath, Stenalees, Bugle, Fowey, Looe and Bodmin. The Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage centre tells the story of old and more recent shipwrecks, as well as a history of Georgian life in the port of Charlestown.

As well as the Eden Project there are many other beautiful gardens open to the public. These include Old Mill Herbary, Trewithen House, Gardens and Nurseries, Pencarrow, Caerhays Castle Gardens and Bosvigo. An old Victorian railway station in Camelford houses the British Cycling Museum.

Weather in St Blazey

St Blazey's climate is mild but can be unpredictable and the south coast beaches are generally less windy than the surfing beaches on the north coast.

Travel St Blazey

Newquay and Plymouth airports serve St Blazey, as does the port of Plymouth. National Express coaches run direct from London and the main line railway is at neighbouring Par.

Lovely Cornwall in comfortable cottage

5 of 5
The cottage is comfortable and well equipped and perfectly suited for a family holiday with dogs. Liz is very welcoming but leaves you alone to do your own thing. St Teath is perfectly located for reaching places such as Padstow, Rock, the Eden Project, Camel Trail and Tintagel. Would definitely book again - thank you Liz!

A well equipped family house in a perfect location

5 of 5
This was our second extended family holiday at Atlantic House. The location next to the beach is ideal for our small grandchildren. Having 2 lounges is ideal for younger and older family members. The house is comfortable and furnished beautifully. The warm outside shower is perfect for the young ones returning from the beach. The house was spotlessly clean on our arrival, and the cleaners did an excellent job in the middle of our stay. We had a couple of maintenance issues on both of our stays. Last year the loft bathroom toilet flush was not working properly, the washing machine broke down and had to be replaced, and the septic tank had to be emptied during our stay...not a pleasant experience! This year there were continuing problems with the downstairs toilet flush, which despite a visit from the plumber remained an issue throughout our stay. However, these issues would not deter us from returning to Atlantic House. Overall a lovely holiday was had by all.
