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.

The house is lovely and perfect for a family like ours. (Myself , partner daughter, husband and 2 children and of course 2 dogs). My partner and I are regular visitors to the village so it was great to be able to stay somewhere we could share "St Teath" with my family. The house was very well equipped, and the beds comfortable - the rooms were all more than adequately furnished and, although the décor was a little tired this is to be expected when letting out to families with dogs. A perfect base for North Cornwall and its attractions. Would definitely stay again - loved it!.

The cottage was secluded and in the middle of no where which seemed to make it all the more cosier. Decor was lovely, very clean and fully equipped. The closest town is padstow there wasn't much there other than the historic port which was very popular. We drove into Newquay which took around 30minutes but was a lovely day out as the weather was lovely for the time of year. Closest supermarket is Tesco which has everything you will need. We didn't go out to eat as we enjoyed cooking in the fully fitted kitchen. Defiantly will be back, may even bring the children as the cottage would also be perfect for a small family.

Great location and lots to see near by. The accomadation was excellent, can't wait to visit again.
