    “Well appointed comfortable cottage.”

    The village of St Columb Major was quaint with a good supermarket, two butchers, three pubs and a great little deli all minutes away from the cottage.

The property

This delightful end-terrace cottage is part of a 300 year old listed building which offers superb accommodation tucked away in the heart of the historic old Cornish town of St Columb Major.

As soon as you arrive, you will appreciate the home-from-home feeling that exudes throughout the cottage, and with tasteful furnishings and thoughtful extras, the owners have created a holiday home of which they are justly proud.

You enter through the spacious kitchen and dining area before going down two steps into the beautiful sitting room.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor, all close to the family bathroom.

Outside there is a quiet suntrap of a patio, ideal for an early morning coffee, along with a shed for storing bikes and boards.

From the cottage, you are a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre of the town and a choice of pubs, restaurants, takeaways and independent shops including a number of butchers, famous throughout Cornwall for their pasties which are made fresh every day.

For a special occasion or a night out, Michelin-starred restaurants are available at both Padstow and Port Isaac, whilst in nearby Newquay the variety of restaurants is unmatched anywhere in the South West.

With so many beaches to choose from, including the award-winning Mawgan Porth beach which is only 5 miles from the cottage, beach lovers will be spoilt for choice.

With the majority of Cornwall's finest beaches and leading tourist attractions all within 30 minutes’ drive, this is an ideal central location for touring this beautiful county, with the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan both nearby.

Shennach offers excellent accommodation in a wonderful central location offering quality holidays all year round.

The resort attractions of Newquay includes bars, clubs, a zoo, vibrant shops, the National Surfing Centre and fabulous beaches are all just 7 miles away, while 9 miles in the other direction is the sleepy fishing port of Padstow. In between lies a beautiful section of the South West Coast path, winding its way over the clifftops, down to tranquil coves and across some of the region's top beaches. The surrounding area is also a visitor’s paradise with much to see and do, and there's good public transport links available by bus, coach, train and plane.
