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.
July should, hopefully, see the lovely sunny weather truly set in, so let’s turn our minds to getting out and about and making the most of it.
In your village there is the Church Revel Sunday Concert on the 21st July. Torridge Male Voice Choir will be in attendance and a tea will follow in the Parish Hall, starts at 7pm.
The Jubilee Club are off to Antony House and Kernow Mills on the 10th July, contact Eve on 01566 781452 for more details and to book a seat.
Further afield, Brass on the Grass is on in Bude - 7th July and 28th July 2-4pm at the bandstand.
St Gennys Church have got an art exhibition from 19th to 21st July.
Launceston Agricultural Show is on 25th July and the Air Ambulance are holding their annual cream tea on Sunday 21st July 2-6pm at the Crackington Institute.
Plenty of dates for your diary, why not pop along and support a couple, I think you are sure to have a good time.
