St Columb Major itself has good range of local shops, pubs and restaurants, all within a short stroll from your front door.
"We stayed here October time and what a fantastic little gem this was! The cottage itself is very cute but also has a lot of room. The garden is really nice to chill in and sit by the river that flows right through the middle. Fantastic access to Rock and Padstow just a short drive away. Column St Major is also a beautiful little town with a lot of character and is a 5 minute walk from the cottage (if that). Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2016-06-08
