Overview

About the property

Cosy accommodation for 2 in quiet rural setting but close to all amenities.

Basic but fully equipped stable conversion with some original features. Downstairs open plan kitchen and lounge with adjacent bathroom. A picture door leads to private rear garden. Upstairs is a large bedroom with views to ancient church. St Columb is an ideal location to explore the beaches of the North Coast, It has 4 pubs within walking distance, 2 fish and chip shops, a Chinese take away and a Pizza shack, 2 butchers and a 7-11 Co-op. So no worries about drinking and driving in the evening.There are a number of bus routes from St Columb to popular destinations, taxi from Newquay about £12.

The owner is on site and happy to deal with any problems or give local attractions.

The rear garden is yours to use, it has seating and a fire pit. The other grounds work as a smallholding. You are welcome to walk among the geese, not many people do. Note linen can be provided at £10.

About Liz Golding

I (Elizabeth) am a recently retired social worker, I have lived in St Columb for 32 years and have seen most of the County, For about 30 years I was a keen scuba diver and then became a keen horse rider. Together with my husband Bob we had our own horses. Bob is a retired Podiatrist and handy man whose hobbies are cooking and tending the smallholding.

Liz Golding purchased this barn in 1982

Why Liz Golding chose Saint Columb Major

This property is not for everyone, it is compact downstairs and the floor is a painted original stable floor, the bathroom works and has now been updated.

However people who have lived in it have always found it very serene. Love it or hate it I think may apply.

In the past it has been a long term let. This is the second year of letting as we met so many nice people from all over the world. Not much has changed except the shower room has been updated.

What makes this barn unique

Obviously the price is reasonable.The location is well worth trying, being close to the sea, however like elsewhere, it sometimes rains in Cornwall! We think April and May can be superb not too busy and a riot of colour, June is usually good then you have the hectic July and August, there are ways of avoiding the traffic.

St Columb is midway between the busy resort of Newquay and picturesque Padstow, yet remains a peaceful location even in the height of the season. Located In easy reach of the wonderful varied beaches of the North Coast and access to the South Coast and such attractions as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. It is close to the Camel Trail for cyclists, walkers and birdwatchers. The airport is less than 4 miles away.

Lovely place to stay in wonderful environment

  • 5 of 5

The stable conversion is an original accommodation which is quaint but well equipped and well looked after. The large garden/lawn at the rear of the house is great. The location is perfect to explore the area and the coop supermarket nearby very convenient.

Liz is a wonderful host who made us feel welcome. We enjoyed our stay a lot and we hope to come back some day.

Really lovely quaint cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous sweet stable conversion cottage with loft style bedroom. Great accommodation for two adults, ideal position for exploring the Cornwall area. Liz and Bob are great hosts and most helpful. Brilliantly well equipped kitchen. The whole cottage homely and very clean with fantastic comfy bed. Would definitely visit again in the future.

Lovely little place.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely little place! Comfortable and well equipped. But more importantly, really peaceful and relaxing. Liz and Bob are so nice; friendly and helpful but non-intrusive.

Thoroughly recommended!

cutest thing ever.

  • 5 of 5

this conversion is the cutest thing ever, may be small but it has everything you need.

Liz and Bob made us feel really welcome with fresh eggs and drinks on arrival, they know the area really well and can advise you on the best areas to visit.

The garden was a wonderful sun trap, very peaceful place to spend a couple of hours.

The only negative thing we found is that the stairs are quite scary especially if you are bare foot as the bottom 3 steps have no carpeting so can be very slippy, also my partner and I completely missed the bottom step and fell a couple of times as the colour of the wooden step merges into the colour of the floor making you think there is not another step, maybe just highlight the bottom step so it can be seen more clearly.

Overall though we had a wonderful relaxing peaceful stay ,definately go back again.

Thank you for our excellent stay.

Mike and Kris Oxfordshire.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive review. As far as the steps go we do point out in the web site they are not easy and repeat with our introductory speech. We do advise leaving a downstairs light on if you need to visit the loo in the night. However we will take on board your comments and perhaps put carpet runners on the bottom steps. Forgot to say thanks for leaving the place spotless.

Comfortable converted Stable with beautiful gardens.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our fortnight at the stable,especially sitting in the garden watching the bird's and Liz and Bob gardening.You couldn't find a more hospitable couple,even left eggs(very nice free range eggs they were too) milk and butter and all sorts of added extras. It was extremely peaceful and we slept very well.Thank you for a lovely stay.
