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.
Lovely long summer days (hopefully). Let's make the most of them and join in some amazing activities that have been planned.
There is a Church Gift Aid day on Saturday 16th June from 10am to 12 Noon with visiting bell ringers and refreshments. Please come along and support this cause and take a minute to have a look at the restored altar window paintings.

Norman Osborne has been in touch with BT again about the fibre optic Broadband being available in the village. To quote direct from the email:
"My name is Dave Smith and I've picked this case up for you. I've looked on three of our systems and they all say that you can place a fibre order now.
Also, there are over 30 spare ports in the PCP you are served by, so it looks like fibre is now available. Please email me on email@example.com quoting your case reference (C4870669) or call me on 03316668450 between 8.00 and 16.00 Monday to Friday"
