This lovely former inn in St Columb Major sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

The Old Smithy is a lovely semi-detached holiday home, a quality conversion of a former inn in the town of St Columb Major. There is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, and a twin room, as well as a family bathroom. Downstairs is an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

Outside is off road parking for two cars, and a rear courtyard with furniture. The Old Smithy makes a wonderful base for the amenities of St Columb Major, the beaches around Newquay, the coastal path and much more.


Cornwall Holiday
This place certainly has the WOW factor. Your every need is catered for, not a thing out of place, even down to our dog being left a Bonio in the dog bowl for our arrival. Lovely decor, light, airy, spacious & makes you feel very special. Downstairs is very relaxing with lovely patio doors allowing sunlight in virtually all day. The master bedroom is huge with an en suite that is superb. The bed & pillows were so comfy. Our daughter (12) loved her room as it had a tv in it & the separate bathroom, which made her feel very grown up seeing as she didn't have to share with mum & dad!!! Definitely a place I would choose to stop again. Very central to all that Cornwall had to offer. Only about half an hour to our favourite beach, Treyarnon Bay, which was our main reason for booking this cottage. With regards to the dog, the outside area is not secure so if your pet has a tendency to wander then maybe you need to have a re-think, plus no grass around so they can do their "business". Luckily our pooch sticks to my husband like glue so she never ever bothered to make an escape bid plus we didn't mind waking her round the village to let her go to the toilet & obviously we had pooh bags aplenty to clear it up!!!! Would be nice if we could have had re-cycling boxes for our empty "Rattler" bottles as I do like to re-cycle where I can. Apart from these two small blips I can highly recommend this cottage as a great base for a holiday to Cornwall .... get it booked!!!!!

Absolutely fantastic x
Just returned back from a superb weeks holiday staying at The Old Smithy. The cottage was perfect, lovely decoration and had everything we needed. Added bonus of a Co-op a short walk away and the Ring O Bells does great food. Hopefully returning in October we loved it that much. Oscar our dog was also made very welcome xx

A nice area to stay for getting about and the cottage was well cared for.

What a great week at The Old Smithy. The location is excellent to explore the wonders of North Cornwall and we felt very comfortable in this attractive cottage with plenty of windows and light and a nice outlook into the courtyard. The kitchen was really well set up so we were happy to prepare are own meals.

We stayed at The Old Smithy last year and everything was just as good this year. The cottage has such a high standard with everything, can't fault it in any way. It is ideally located in the middle of St Columb Major, with everything on your doorstep, and nowhere in Cornwall is too far to visit from this location, ideal. Will definitely be back again next year!
