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.

Upcoming Events

March 2021

March brings a renewed optimism to the village, vaccines are full steam ahead and our lockdown looks like it could be slowly coming to an end, caution is the best policy, we really don’t want another wave.

With this in mind, events in the village for this month are obviously going to be subdued, but there are a few things you could get involved with.

The Parish Council are holding their Annual Meeting on Tuesday 2nd March at 7.30pm via Zoom. Anyone wishing to attend please contact the Clerk on 01566 781269 or Email [email protected] for a link.

Walking Club is still going ahead, why not contact Mary Carter on 230656 for more details.
