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.

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 comfortable and lovely location. Mrs Jane Newsome - 21st August 2017
Location was very convenient for accessing towns and resorts via the A30 and A39.Mrs Marcia Cox - 26th June 2017
Very, very quiet, peaceful location. Owner was friendly and helpful. The cottage was perfect and I loved the little private courtyard.Mrs Trevarthen - 23rd July 2016
Central location for exploring many parts of Cornwall. Had a great time we will be back.Mr Watkins - 3rd October 2015
A very well equipped and comfortable property. Everything was excellent. A home from home. Very quiet and relaxing. A good base to travel around and call back for a meal etc.Mrs W - 11th August 2015
Lovely cottage, away from it all. Nice welcome and we loved Jessie the dog. Nice place to unwind, only one improvement, we would have liked somewhere to hang washing, but apart from that a very enjoyable place to stay. I would highly recommend for a couple.Mr R - 22nd April 2015
We stayed 1st week of September and we found the cottage an ideal base and very homely. Close to the A39 so we got out and about every day reaching main attractions within 30mins/1hour. Nice to come home to in the evening, very cosy and well equipped. We certainly recommend it as a perfect base.Mrs C - 14th September 2014
