Places to holiday in St Columb Major, Cornwall

St Columb is close to many tourist attractions in Cornwall, which makes it a popular holiday destination for those who prefer to stay in a smaller community. Community being the optimal word here, as St Columb is noted for its hospitality, community spirit and organizations, such as the football club, bell ringers, town council, parish church, young farmers club and its old Cornwall society.

There are plenty of hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast (b&b) in the surrounding area, but the best way to really become part of this community is to rent self catering accommodation. With a host of camping and caravan sites there is plenty of choice, but many holiday makers prefer the home from home comforts that holiday cottages provide.

If you are planning to holiday in St Columb at the time of its famous Hurling festivities, then you will need to book your cottage early as crowds engage in this ancient game on Shrove Tuesday and its rematch a fortnight later. The night before there is a sense of excitement, yet the town resembles a ghost town with all the shop windows shuttered ready for the teams to compete for the silver ball.

We stayed for three days with our dog during our half term break and had a thoroughly lovely time-this really is a special place, made to feel very welcome, nothing too much trouble. Great location and lots to see near by. The accomadation was excellent, can't wait to visit again.

Definitely luxe - does exactly what it says on the tin!

5 of 5
Fantastic location and luxurious accommodation - it's the small touches that you go home remembering; the home made scones, clotted Cornish cream, jam and prosecco; personalised welcome letter and warm welcome on arrival PLUS the wonderful scenery, beach and places to see! Our visit was short but very sweet! We will most definitely be back! Thank you Katrina and Arthur!

A real little gem

5 of 5
Wonderful little West Wing with absolutely all mod.cons. Perfect location for exploring Cornwall. The view of the full moon over the sea from our bedroom was magical. Pat and Keith have thought of everything and we would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home to anyone. They will even accommodate small children and well behaved pets. A lovely little private garden overlooking fields. Just perfick!
