St Neot

 

Our village nestles in a sheltered valley on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor in south east Cornwall, enjoying the mild Cornish climate and the outstanding warmth of our community spirit. Back in 2004 we were voted the Calor Village of the Year. We were delighted to receive Calor Village of the Decade in 2006 of which we are still very proud.

Within the village you have a choice of excellent accommodation. Whether you visit in winter or summer, try taking in one of our many events, ranging from the Pantomime in February to the Summer Carnival, Fetes and Flower Festival. Our "Royalist" village still celebrates (see picture below) the restoration to the throne of King Charles II on each May 29th, Oak Apple Day. There are also numerous concerts held in Carnglaze Slate Caverns (and other attractions also), the Church and the amphitheater in Door Step Green.

The most recent of our many projects in the village is the Cott Barn Project. This project was converting an existing barn in the centre of the village into a Community Resource Centre. Work has now finished for both the structural building work and the equipping of the Community Archive Room. Photos of the restoration can be seen by clicking here for page 1 and here for page 2.

 Either coast can be reached in half an hour. Within and around the Parish you will find plenty to interest you. The area is rich in History and Legend with our Church famous for its medieval stained glass windows, and the Holy Well nearby. Bodmin Moor abounds in archaeological remains, the well known Jamaica Inn and the magic of Dozmary Pool. in which lies King Arthur's sword Excalibur, are all within our Parish boundary. Nature lovers can enjoy walking on the Moor or along the river bank by Golitha Falls. You could also take advantage of the local trout and salmon fishing or just relax in the Door Step Green, a garden created by the villagers in 2004. How about a walk along the shore of Colliford Lake?

During an extended stay in our village you will be welcomed into the community and be able to join in with the Church or Chapel services, visit the monthly Produce Market or attend a meeting of one of our many clubs and societies such as the Ramblers, the Local Historians, the Welcome Club or the Women's Institute. You could visit the age Concern "Pop In" on a wednesday morning and enjoy a cup of coffee while chatting to one of us! If the sun is shining you could spend an afternoon watching a village cricket match. We have many village events including the Carnival click here for photos.
