The Toll House is a real find. Situated down a lane close to the small, quiet town of St Columb Major, this Grade II listed, detached, former toll keeper’s cottage is a delight, with a pretty garden bordering a small river, which follows the Vale of St Mawgan to the sea at Mawgan Porth, 5 miles away.

As a base it is ideal for exploring Cornwall’s Atlantic coastline, with many fine sandy and surfing beaches (Newquay, Porthreath and Perranporth), secluded estuary inlets and picturesque fishing harbours (Port Isaac, Padstow, and Boscastle), within easy driving distance . The North Cornwall coast path allows exploration of some spectacular coastal scenery and famous landmarks such as Tintagel, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. Newquay, 7 miles, has a wide variety of leisure attractions to interest adults and children alike. St Columb Major itself is within walking distance of the Toll House and has good range of local shops.

The Toll House has great appeal and charm, is ideal for short breaks or longer stays throughout the year and suitable for couples or a small family. Its interior has genuine character – lots of exposed beams and small, leaded windows, complemented by tasteful furnishings in traditional style.


Small entrance porch. Beamed sitting/dining room with open fireplace containing a small woodburner and bow window overlooking the garden and river. Fitted "galley" kitchen. Downstairs shower room/w.c. Stairs (NB open on one side) lead up to: 2 bedrooms, both with a vaulted ceiling, - one double with brass and iron bed and one with zip & link beds offering a choice of 2 singles or 6ft double.

Professionally designed, attractive, riverside garden to the rear of the cottage. ( N.B. small children must be supervised).

What our guests say

Absolutely perfect getaway nearby some fantastic Cornish towns.

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!!
