St Neot

Cornwall, UK

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.

 

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 a 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. Our School website is www.st-neot.cornwall.sch.uk also have a look at the school page on this site.

 

We hope you enjoy visiting St Neot

St Neot Local Historians win

the Cornish Heritage Award 2018

 

St Neot Local Historians are celebrating success at the first Cornwall Heritage Awards which took place at Scorrier House in Redruth in March, having won the Cornish Heritage Award 2018 for the West Northwood Dig, Eat and Sing Community Archaeology Project.

 

Martin Eddy, Chairman, who received the award on behalf of the project team, said that the judges had praised the project's ability to raise the profile and understanding of Cornish Heritage. They were impressed by the number of people engaging with the dig, the volunteer support and the new knowledge gained about farming on Bodmin Moor 3000 years ago.

 

In their first year, the Cornwall Heritage Awards have been organised by South West Museum Development in collaboration with Cornwall Museums Partnership and were made possible by investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

 

The award came with a cash prize of £500 which the Historians have digitised Mary Bellringer's films of St Neot. We will be showing these during 2019.
