Jacobstow Village, Cornwall

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.


May hopefully brings promise of nicer weather and long evenings, you never know, it might happen. Why not look out for events that are happening in and near your village this month.

On Saturday 12th May we have the annual family fun dog show at Jacobstow School, so, if you have a pampered pooch or morose mutt why not bring it along, I bet there will be a category that you will be able to enter.

Further afield you have the Poundstock Revel on Saturday 5th May, and a jolly good sing at St Gennys Church on Saturday 12th May.

Living Water Sunday School at Canworthy Water has launched a lot of new activities, check out page 9 of your Journal for details.
