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.

Very cosy property competitively priced. Melody Cottage is situated in an excellent central Cornwall location ideally situated for travelling around the whole county with excellent access to dog friendly beaches and resorts close by. The pretty cottage is located in a beautiful and extremely peaceful setting with mature countryside and attractive surrounding gardens set against a lovely farmhouse and within a peaceful hamlet. We loved the setting and found the accommodation more than suitable for our week long stay and very dog friendly, we would definitely recommend it to friends.Mr and Mrs Meader - 9th July 2016
