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 sees the annual Harvest Festival planned in the Village Hall on Monday 7th October, there will be a service, tea and auction and it starts at 7pm, all are welcome for what promises to be a good evening.
The Scouts have a dog show planned on 5th October at the scout hut and there is a 2 course roast lunch being served at the British Legion Hall on Sunday 27th October.
Eric and Jean Frost are appealing for plant contributions for a new border up at Wainhouse, just leave your plant by one of the borders and they will take good care of it.
