St Columb Major near Newquay, Cornwall
This character cottage, part of a former inn, is in the heart of St Columb Major, an historic, unspoilt Cornish market town within a 15 minute drive of Watergate Bay. This St Columb Major cottage is ideal for a couple or family looking to enjoy this fabulous part of Cornwall with so much to see and do. This St Columb cottage boasts exposed Cornish stone walls and wooden beams, and has an open plan living area with modern décor and a well-equipped fitted kitchen, along with two bedrooms and a bathroom. The shared courtyard at the rear of this St Columb cottage is an ideal place to relax and unwind on those warm, summer evenings, perhaps with a glass of wine as you discuss the day’s highlights. The town's amenities are right on the doorstep of your cottage in Cornwall, including pubs, grocery shops and a chemist. Watergate Bay is within easy reach, where, at low tide, the beach becomes a vast expanse of unbroken golden sand backed by high cliffs, and is a surfer’s paradise and great for kitesurfing as well. The beach is also popular with families and because of its size there is always a private spot to be found. From this St Columb cottage it’s just a short drive to Newquay, which provides plenty of family attractions including Waterworld, Newquay Zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium, while a little further afield are the fabulous Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan. With something to occupy all ages in this superb part of Cornwall, a stay in this lovely St Columb cottage could well be the first of many!
