The property

Perfectly located for touring the spectacular far South West coast of Cornwall this delightful old granite miner’s cottage is situated in England's first and last town, St Just, on the coast between Land’s End and St Ives.

Set in a terrace, a short stroll from the town centre, you will feel at home the moment you arrive.

You enter the cottage through the porch into the spacious sitting room with a woodburner, which will prove to be welcome in the cooler months after a breathtaking walk along this amazing coastline.

The kitchen and bathroom are also on the ground floor whist the two bedrooms, one single and one double are both on the first floor.

At the rear of the property is a courtyard offering a great spot to relax at the end of the day.

Few towns, if any, have retained their character in the way St Just has.

History abounds throughout the town with the whole area rich in mining, farming and fishing with monuments and prehistoric antiquities all around.

A visit to the close by Bronze Age settlement of Cape Cornwall, is a must.

The only cape in England where the two oceans meet and the steep walk to the summit will reward you with a 270 degree view over the Western Approaches.

Also the annual St Just Lafrowda festival is a must for all the family.

Lovers of the popular TV series Poldark will recognise many of the mines in the area featured.

The nearby Geevor Tin Mine at Pendeen is also worth a look, where the Hard Rock Trail will take you through areas conveying the spirit of the past.

With a choice of pubs, cafes, local food shops and takeaways you have ample dining choices, whilst the galleries and beautiful old church in the town are all well worth a visit.

For confident drivers, the beautiful drive from St Just to St Ives is best taken in the evening to experience what is considered by many to be the best and most romantic place anywhere, to view a sunset.

An ideal base for a wonderful holiday in a stunning location, whatever the time of year.
