Welcome to the Jacobstow Village web site.
This site has been designed to give you a brief introduction to the village and also point you in the right direction for any organisation, club or volunteer group in the village you may be interested in. The village lies just off the A39, approximately half way between Camelford and Bude and about five minutes drive from the beach at Crackington Haven - you can hear the sea on still nights! The Norman church of St James lies in the middle of the village and we also have two other churches within our boundaries. As we are in a rural situation the views and walks in and around the village are outstanding.
We are a small community with a lot of support from various sections of the village for different interests, as you can see from the navigation keys on the side of this home page. Contact details are included in the information, so please feel free to get in touch.
October brings the onset of dark evenings and late mornings, but don't that let stop you venturing out, there is plenty to get up to this month in the village.
The Harvest Festival will be held in the Parish Hall on Monday 9th October at 7pm. This will be followed by supper and an auction, please do try and support this event, it's important to village life to keep traditions like this going.
