Bijou Cottage is an enchanting single storey stone and slate cottage with bags of character including vaulted beamed ceilings and rough plastered walls. A haven from the hustle and bustle of modern living, this romantic cottage is located down a quite country lane in the peaceful hamlet of Tregatillian and surrounded by beautiful countryside. It is only about 1 mile from the small market town of St. Columb Major, but within easy striking distance of beaches (15-20 minutes' drive). Gourmets will also be delighted to know that there's a Jamie Oliver Fifteen restaurant at nearby Watergate Bay. The whole of this pretty cottage is open plan (except the bathroom and hall). Despite their tranquil setting these cottages are ideally located for exploring Cornwall being less than 10 minutes' drive from the A30, so a trip to Tate St. Ives is less than an hour away and the Eden Project about 20 minutes.

We chose Bijou Cottage because it was just the right size and price for the two of us and we could park right outside the front door. Although tucked away in lovely country lanes it was only minutes from the A30, so excursions were easy.
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.
