This end terrace, ex-miners holiday cottage has extensive raised decking to the rear, taking advantage of the stunning coastal views and is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day exploring. The area was once a thriving tin mining area, visible today by its many engine houses dotted around the coastline, including the famous Crown Mines and Geevor Mine open to the public with museum, shop and mine trips. Take an open top bus ride to appreciate the stunning scenery, visit nearby Pendeen Light House or the beautiful rugged Cape Cornwall with its dramatic coastline and coastal pathways. For golfers there is Cape Cornwall Golf Club. Nearby St Just with its busy square provides an array of local shops including butchers, bakers, fresh veg, deli, supermarket, PO, numerous art and craft shops, local art galleries, 3 pubs, café’s and tea rooms. The location is perfect for exploring the many delights of West Cornwall including Lands End, the romantic Minack Theatre, beautiful Sennen Cove with its white sand beach popular with surfers, the quaint harbours of Mousehole and fish market at Newlyn. The scenic coastal route from Pendeen to St Ives is spectacular, passing the heather clad moorland, the tiny village of Zenoe with its historical church and mermaid tales. The picturesque harbour and town of St Ives provides winding streets with al fresco café’s and waterside restaurants. Art galleries including the Tate Modern and Barbara Hepworth Museum. Penzance is close by with shops, restaurants, supermarkets, harbour and long promenade with Lido. Take a day trip to the beautiful Isles of Scilly by ferry from Penzance or air from Lands End Airport. Shop 300 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    This was a charming little cottage in a great location. Having our own parking space was a bonus. My husband and I got married in St. Just and stayed the week in this cottage. It was perfect for us. The views from the decking are impressive. St. Just is less than 10 minutes away with Penzance and Lands End very close too. The cottage was clean and comfortable for two. The second bedroom looked great too. It was clean and had everything we needed. There was a minor problem on our last but one night when the bathroom light fitting broke. It was completely replaced the next day! Geevor Mine is walking distance and definitely too good to miss.

    A great base for exploring West Cornwall. We had a lovely week in this convenient and comfortable cottage. The location is great; approached via a good, fast but quiet road from Penzance, and within a short walk to a shop, pubs and restaurants. It is also on a bus route with regular and late-running buses. The private parking space was an added bonus. The cottage is compact but makes good use of the space available, and was fine for 2 adults and a baby. We were able to fit our travel cot into the twin room by moving the furniture slightly. We also took our own highchair and managed with this by moving it out of the way after mealtimes because the dinning area is also a passageway. It was very helpful and thoughtful that basic household items were provided for the week (dish cloths, dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, washing machine tabs etc). The kitchen appliances were in good condition and the cottage was generally well-furnished by holiday let standards. The headroom on the staircase is very limited but unsurprising in such an old property. Even at 5 ft 7 I had to stoop all the way up and banged my head several times. It is fine if you are agile and careful but not good for those with limited agility. My 6 ft 5 husband found it very difficult to descend the stairs safely while bent double and carrying a baby. The view out of the kitchen window at sunset was beautiful. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t good enough for us to use the lovely raised terrace area above it, which would have had even better views.

    In the heart of Cornwall’s mining heritage and close to the coastal path, this was a great centre to explore the area. Well equipped kitchen and two cosy living rooms. It would be amazing in summer to be able to eat on the roof terrace, watching the sun set, but sadly too nippy at Easter for us to enjoy the view.Mattresses not the most comfortable, but other furnishings serviceable and tidy.
