Furnished in a modern style yet retaining some of the original character of the building, Dove @Retreat Court is a light-filled, mid-terraced cottage in a peaceful setting not far from the expansive, sandy north coast beach of Mawgan Porth. This cosy house is ideally located as a great base from which to explore the county as it’s just a 15 minute drive from the main route through Cornwall. With two bedrooms and bathrooms there’s plenty of room for a small family or friends holidaying together with local amenities a short walk away in the town centre.

Originally a workhouse in the 1800s, Retreat Court has been beautifully converted into a collection of homes set around a communal garden and grounds. With tall, sash windows looking over the landscaped grounds, you can return from a busy day exploring to enjoy the calm environment of the location.

Lovely property maintained to a high standard. Great location for beaches. Village has a good range of shops and the local pub, Ring O’Bells does excellent food. Just to note that the outdoor space is shared and there’s no outdoor seating. This wasn’t a problem for us as we were out enjoying the local beaches.

Mr B,


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.
