The Old Smithy Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
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.

The lively town of St Columb Major lies just seven miles from Newquay. The town has many amenities including pubs, shops and a post office. St Columb Major is situated among superb countryside. Newquay is a bustling, popular seaside town which has a number of pubs, bars, shops, aquarium and zoo. Newquay is also well known for surfing and fantastic beaches. Nine miles from St Columb Major is the pretty, fishing town of Padstow. Also nearby are some beautiful walks along the South West coastal path, which has some stunning scenery, and the walks takein rugged cliffs tops, lovely sand dunes and beaches. Within ten miles there is something for everyone, from stately homes and beautiful gardens to adventure playgrounds, theme parks and golf courses. Only eighteen miles away are the famous Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan. St Columb Major and the area nearby have many attractions which are fantastic to visit any time of the year.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

The cottage was a lovely place to come home to after a full day of sightseeing. Cornwall is beautiful and the location of the cottage was very convenient.

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.

The cottage in St Columb Major is lovely, well equipped and in the right place to see all of Cornwall. We have had the wow effect!

The cottage was lovely and of a high standard. It was larger and nicer than I had anticipated. I would definitely recommend to others and would stay again on our return to Cornwall.

Wow. This is a beautiful cottage in a lovely part of Cornwall and we had a great week there. The local butcher has a good selection of quality meats and the cottage is only a stones' throw from the co-op too; great for any forgotten items. We were very lucky with the weather and visited Watergate Bay each morning to walk the dog before then exploring in the afternoon. This is a fantastic place and we are already planning for next year.

The Old Smithy is well located in Cornwall to provide us with a base for touring the county. It is so comfortable and well appointed, that it offers a total sanctuary at the end of the day, to cook a meal, relax in front of TV and read books on the lovely sofa. Thank you.

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!

Everything about this cottage was excellent. The Old Smithy was in an ideal place for touring and close to amenities. The cottage was very clean and everything in it was top quality which was credit to the owner and cleaner. We could have lived there-we loved it .

Liked everything; it was beautiful and ideal for everything, a great location for touring the area. It's one of the best places we have stayed, everything about it was amazing. I could live there very comfortably. A fabulous place, would recommend, it is a credit to the owner and her cleaner.

The Old Smithy was very clean and well equipped. The village had a few shops and pubs for food which were only a short walk away. The accommodation was first class, the best we have ever stayed in and will hopefully be coming back soon.
Miss Lyle
April 2014
The property was amazing. A stunningly beautiful renovation, attention to detail second to none, finish was better than any high end boutique hotel you could ever hope to stay in. Everything you could need was included, down to milk in the fridge, coffee, tea, sugar and biscuits to welcome us and some for the dog too, on top of a pile of extra towels just for her and a doggy dinner mat as well! Perfectly located to explore most of Cornwall 20 minutes from the coast in several directions. Could easily live there happily ever after; the pictures do not do it any justice or show just how big it is either.

This is a fantastic well equiped property in a very central but secluded position in the village of St. Columb Major. All of our required facilities such as private parking, a good pub restaurant and convenience store, etc., were within 100yds.
Mrs Melloy

The property was in an excellent place to explore the area. The cottage was very comfortable and roomy for two people.
Mr Faulkner

The cottage itself and where it was located, as nowhere was too far to travel to in Cornwall. St Columb Major had everything we wanted, including a well stocked Co-Op. Cottage was probably the best place we have stayed in and could not recommend highly enough both cottage and St Columb Major, really made our holiday great.

We enjoyed the week in the nice Old Smithy. We appreciate the well restored old building with the modern kitchen and bathrooms. St Columb is a nice little town, and we explored the surrounding in Cornwall with car, and returned to our Old Smith with great pleasure!

The Old Smithy is a beautifully decorated and well equipped cottage. As a family we really enjoyed our time there, its located well for exploring Cornwall.

One of the best holiday cottages I have ever visited. Owners both exceptionally helpful and nothing was too much trouble. A real home-from-home and I could not recommend this place enough!!!

The house is stunning - there was such a wonderful welcome with a cream tea waiting for us, and for our dog a pack of treats and towels for him if needed whilst we were there. Furnished to a very high standard making the stay feel very homely - would definitely recommend this to everyone.

We stayed here with another couple, and the place had everything we could possibly need. It was immaculate, comfortable, and convenient - we could walk to a grocery store and great take-out places. Well-decorated, satellite tv, two great bathrooms! Good base for exploring Cornwall.
March 2015
Absolutely beautiful, loved everything about this cottage and will most definitely be back. The location is ideal as it is easy to get to places yet quiet and private. It has its own parking (always a plus in that neck of the woods) and a lovely local pub that does great food. Well laid out, very nicely decorated and has all the mod cons you need. Wish it was mine!!!
December 2013
Beautiful property, immaculate from top to bottom. Had everything we needed for our stay. Prime location close to the beach and the Eden project. Would recommend to all. Will definitely be going back in the summer 2014.
December 2012
Good service from start to finish. Home was beautifully decorated and nice and central for sight seeing. National Trust properties close by, nice walks, beautiful coastline and interesting towns. Only blip was not being able to find the house easily-perhaps instructions could be improved? We couldn't see the name 'The Old Smithy' anywhere. Otherwise 10/10.
Della Williams

We loved our stay here - had lots of friendly touches such as a cream tea to welcome us and dog treats for our dog! Compelted to a high standard - woudl definately go back
June 2013
This cottage has the wow factor as soon as you walk in. The photos do not do it justice. St Columb Major is a lovely little village with local shops and pubs also very central for getting out and about. Visited Lands End which did take about 1hr 20, Padstow, Port Isaac where they were filming Doc Martin, Sennen Cove which is beautiful, loads of other towns and villages, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cornwall and cannot wait to go back.

Turned up on the Saturday pm where we were meet by the owner as there was a problem with one of the lights in the bathroom, she had a electrican turning up at any moment to fix it. She left us to settle in and unpack whilst the light was getting fixed, once this was done she wished us a great time and lefted. There was a bottle of red wine on the side and cream teas two great touches. The conversion is done to a very high standard spotless throughout, very clean even though pets have been welcome in this cottage. Beds were made in both bedrooms and towels on the beds too. Never heard of st columb major before, but it is an excellent base to get to Newquay, st Ives, Edan project, within 30mins. There's a co-op just across the square which is a 2min walk which is great to get a morning paper! And a local butchers too. There are a one or two things I would ask to change, another chair in the lounge area, DVD player in lounge for those cold nights in,some more hangers in the wardrobes and some shelves in the bathrooms so you can put the toiletries on. Other than that this is a 5 star cottage and would recommend to anyone wishing to visit Cornwall.

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