About the property

Sleeps 2 + Parking - Newly Refurbished - In a Quiet Setting Close to Shops.

Grove Cottage is entirely self-contained with its own front door. It forms part of Grove House, a pretty and typically Cornish stone and slate Grade II Listed Georgian town house. It is tucked away in a quiet corner of the conservation area in the small, friendly, historic market town of St Columb Major, which is located only a 5 minute drive from Newquay's small airport, which has several daily London flights, as well as other UK and European flights.

Grove Cottage has recently been restored and refurbished to a high standard together with the main house. It is compact and comfortable and has lots of character. A home from home all year round.

For reservations of a week our changeover day is Friday and guests can arrive from 4pm onwards. Departure time is 10 am on Fridays. In low season (October up to and including March) we also offer short breaks: A long weekend from Friday afternoon to Monday morning and a mid-week break from Monday afternoon to Friday morning. We apply a 10% discount to all 14 night reservations. Please let us know your approximate arrival time and we will either arrange to be here to welcome you or leave the cottage keys in the key safe for you and provide you with the access code.

Upstairs the bedroom has a generous 160cm wide double bed. Next to the bedroom is a contemporary shower room.

Downstairs the living space includes a small kitchen and dining area. There is also a light and sunny conservatory with table and chairs, a courtyard with outside seating and views of the side garden and an off-road parking space.

We offer mountain bike and surfboard hire and secure bike and surfboard storage.

The cottage is cleaned on every changeover and towels are changed weekly. Please bring your own beach towels.

We both know the local area well and my husband knows all the best surf spots! We provide important contact numbers and recommended places to visit as well as books about the area, maps and leaflets. We are more than happy to help guests with any further information they may need.

St Columb Major town centre is a 3 minute walk away and has a range of small shops and services catering for day to day needs: cashpoint, Co-op convenience store open from 7-11 every day, two excellent cafes, two butchers, Post Office, Boots with pharmacy, doctors' surgery, dentist, garage, four pubs, fish and chip shop, Chinese takeaway and various other shops and services. The small industrial estate includes two large surf stores.

National Cycle Route 32 (Part of The Cornish Way Cycle Route from Land's End to Bude.) passes through St Columb Major, directly past Grove House.

St Columb Major is ideally situated to explore all of Cornwall. We are only 7 minutes from some of Cornwall's finest North Coast beaches (Eg: Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth, Bedruthan Steps). The North and South Coasts, Padstow and the Camel Estuary, Newquay, The Eden Project, Truro, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Bodmin Moor, St Ives with its Tate Gallery and numerous National Trust properties are all within easy reach.

From Grove House Cottage there is a beautiful walk to Mawgan Porth beach that takes approximately 1 1/2 hours. The walk starts on a very quiet country lane, followed by footpaths running through the wooded Carnanton Estate and open countryside. Half-way it passes through the picturesque village of St Mawgan-in-Pydar with its pretty pub and tearoom.

About Anna

We used to love coming to Cornwall camping and in my husbands case, surfing!

We eventually managed to move here in 2002. We have always lived in St. Columb Major and in 2008 bought a run-down Grade II Listed Georgian house in the heart of the town and commenced an extensive restoration and refurbishment program, which is almost complete!

Our son & daughter attend local schools and we have a rescue dog named Albert.

We all love living in beautiful Cornwall. It has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with lots of interesting things to do.

Ideal base to see the North Cornwall Coast

  • 5 of 5

This 2 person bijou annex is ideal for walkers who want to explore the beautiful coastal walks. Anna and Justin live next door and are available if you need anything, with valuable local information. The annex is totally self contained with its own private courtyard, which was ideal for our outdoor breakfasts. The village is traditional Cornish with very narrow streets but an excellent Co-op where you can get anything. Also the village has 2 butchers and I recommend their own cured bacon and jelly free meat pies( We bought a dozen as we left!!) Padstow is only 6 miles away with the famous Rich Stein restaurants, these were excellent and reasonably priced. Overall there is so much to see from this ideal base and was an haven to come home to after a full days sightseeing, I thoroughly recommend it.

Perfect base

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in the centre of the tiny village which is 'real' Cornwall, everyone so friendly. The cottage is small but ideal for 2 people who want a comfortable & well appointed base for exploring or getting to the coast in approx 10 minutes. Local walks are good too. Anna & Justin live in the attached main house and are the perfect hosts, very friendly and full of ideas for trips out - lovely people who you could chat to for hours ! We fell in love with the local area and would not hesitate to book again..............which we will.

Excellent small cottage for two people.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here - Anna and Justin were great hosts who were there if needed but never intruded. We loved St Columb and it was a good base to enable us to visit both the North and South coasts. The cottage is delightful - very small but all we needed. We would strongly recommend it.

We loved the Annex in St Columb.

  • 5 of 5

A quaint ‘bijou’ met us on our arrival along with the lovely Anna. The Annex has been finished to an excellent standard and catered perfectly for our weeks stay.

To be woken by the local church bells and to hear no cars passing and then to see that view was idyllic. We use to love St Columb Major but now we love it!!

With Watergate (10 mins), Padstow (20 mins), Newquay (10 mins) and 3 other beaches (15 -25 mins) so close, it is an ideal spot.

The town (1 mins walk from the Annex) has a butcher, CO-OP, hole in the wall and more importantly some lovely friendly local people. With 4 pubs (if you like that) to choose from then bobs your uncle it has that too!

I cannot sing the towns praises enough and thank you to Anna and Justin for making us feel so welcome. We shall return!
