This stunning barn conversion is situated within easy driving distance of the famous holiday resort of Newquay and all the beautiful beaches it has to offer. It also offers the use of a large all year round heated indoor swimming pool so, whatever the weather, you have this on your doorstep to enjoy for free. Amethies Gwel is ideally situated for touring our beautiful Cornwall.  Having recently benefited from complete refurbishment to a high specification, Amethies Gwel (Cornish for Farmers View) offers a family experience for those wanting to enjoy a taste of country life with the opportunity to dip in and out of the holiday scene.  An enclosed private courtyard, complete with barbecue, provides the perfect space to enjoy al fresco dining after a busy day sightseeing or day at the pool.  Guests also have the use of large shared grounds and the patio outside the pool area.  Pets are very welcome, however because this is a working farm we request they be kept on a lead in the communal areas.

This property offers a small group discount of 20% for parties of 4 or fewer or 30% for 2 or fewer on full weekly bookings at certain times of the year which means that if low occupancy for 2, then you are restricted to the use of one bedroom and if low occupancy for 4, then you are restricted to the use of two bedrooms.  Please contact us to let us know which bedrooms you would like use of.  This discount is automatically applied and the holiday price you are quoted reflects this. If you have any questions or require full use of the property and don't want bedrooms to be locked off, please call our friendly team on 01841 533331 or email cottages@cornishhorizons.co.uk for more information.

Local Area

St Columb is a lovely country village which enjoys a central location in Cornwall, being within around fifteen minutes' drive of many villages and towns in the local area, including Newquay, Wadebridge and Padstow. It is also around twenty minutes' drive from Truro, and if you fancy venturing further afield, is within an hour's drive of places such as Falmouth and St Ives. The surrounding area is not short on family attractions either, with the Cornish Birds Of Prey Centre just up the road, and other popular attractions such as Camel Creek Adventure Park (with a great selection of rides to keep kids of all ages amused, and lots of animals including pets corner and the ever popular Shire horses), and the Lappa Valley Railway, with plenty of diversions including crazy golf, a boating lake, play areas and nature trails. St Columb is now one of only two places in Cornwall (the other being St Ives) to keep up the ancient tradition of "hurling", a game where the whole town (split into two teams) participates, the aim being to carry the ball between two goals, which are two miles apart. The town also boasts a number of excellent pubs and restaurants, serving a variety of food whether you want pizza, fish and chips, Chinese takeaways or a good old Cornish cream tea.
