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.

Idyllic weeks holiday

4 of 5
We had a fabulous stay at Honeysuckle cottage. The cottage was extremely comfortable with everything we needed and the location was stunning. Was lovely to be able to take the dogs and have a safe enclosed garden for them to roam. Was made to feel extemely welcome by the owner, who went out of their way to make sure our stay was a good one and all needs catered for. And last but not least the location was a great central point for travelling to various places, including the Camel Trail (Bodmin), Padstow, Port Issac, Newquay and Falmouth

Perfect location for short break with family

4 of 5
My family enjoyed our 5 day short break in this warm cosy cottage which had everything we required . Comfy beds, linen and towels provided and fully equippped kitchen with extras like board games, dvds and excellent wifi for our 2 young adult children. It was lovely to return from the beaches and settled in for a cosy evening with tv or scrabble. We would recommend this cottage and stay here again as it's an ideal location for surfing beaches and picturesque harbours and the lost gardens of Heligan.
