Welcome to the Jacobstow Village Website
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.
August brings school holidays and hopefully long sunny days. One way of keeping the children entertained is to get involved with the Childrens Festival at St Gennys Church. It runs from 20th to 22nd of August ending with songs of thanksgiving at 3.30 on the 22nd contact Rev Heather Aston for more details. Swim safe is on again in Bude from 2nd to 12th August for children aged 7 - 14 years, book your place on swimsafe.org.uk.
Why not have a look in your Journal to see what clubs and societys you could join and if you have a moment in the sun, have a go at the Puzzle page and send it in, you could win £10 to spend at Wainhouse Stores.
