  • "Well equipped spacious house but cleaning left a lot to be desired!"

    For example chairs dirty with food bits on them. Taps smeary and several cobwebs . Property was lacking any useful local information such as details of footpath up to the Square, bus timetables, facilities in St Just, etc. Would also have been nice to have some guidance with TV workings. However overall we enjoyed our stay visiting nearby beaches and relaxing in the comfortable seating in the sunny garden.

    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate the information you have given and can confirm we have had our cleaners thoroughly gone through the house to rectify the issues. With regards to the chairs we have steamed cleaned them and we are organising them to be reupholstered at the end of the season. The information pack has been updated with new information.

  • "The property on the whole was really lovely, however there are areas for improvement."

    There was no welcome pack for guests informing then of emergency contacts such as doctor, pharmacy etc. No helpful advice/details on transport such as taxis/bus services, hospitality in the local town, places of interest. We had to hunt for manuals on how to use the oven - incidentally the gas hob buttons were extremely easy to turn on without realising. The dining chair covers were filthy, there were crumbs in the groove of the dining table. There were no instructions on how to use the TV. The exterior door from the conservatory to the garden kept sticking and was difficult to lock. Decided not to open it just in case we could not lock it again. We were also taken aback by the request to feed the fish and water the plants if it was really hot weather. The fish pond itself could do with cleaning and the water was quite low....felt very sorry for the fish! However, we did feel very comfortable in the house, the beds were comfy and we had a very lovely, chilled holiday in a very beautiful, friendly part of Cornwall. This would be an absolutely fabulous place with a little TLC. Thank you.

    Thank you for you for your feedback. We appreciate your comments , however we were aware of the cushions on the kitchen chairs, but as the property has been occupied over the summer months we have not been able to get this rectified. When the property becomes available they will be upholstered. We focused our attention on getting the property ready and it slipped our attention of doing the welcome pack. This is now in the process of being done. This is our first year with Cornish cottage holidays, we hope you enjoyed the wine and biscuits and complementary tea,coffee that we leave for each guest. Thank you for letting us know about the crumbs on the table. We will contact the cleaners about this , however we do have to say we cannot fault their cleaning. Regarding the fish pond, the fish have lived in the pond for many years now and the pump gets cleaned weekly. You cannot clean out a fish pond too much as the PH levels in the pond gets compromised and we could lose all our fish by doing this. Regarding the water level, the week you stayed was a particularly hot week and the water must of evaporated. It is now full due to the rain and also we are on a hose pipe ban in Cornwall. We ask our guests to feed the fish when the weather is hot as they seem to eat more food. It has never been a problem before. The conservatory door can be opened and shut and locked. It sometimes get stuck, again when the property becomes available it will be looked on getting this ready. It is in the process of being done. Property Owner

This fabulous, dog-friendly, detached holiday home benefits from a stylish and contemporary interior, off-road parking for four cars, an enclosed rear garden, four beautifully-appointed bedrooms and a spectacular location near both the beautiful Cornish coast and countryside; the perfect setting for families looking to explore Cornwall.

Utilise the off-road parking before stepping through into your new home-from-home, head straight into the sitting room where you can unwind on either plush sofa in front of the Smart TV, a wonderful place to relax after a day full of exploration.

Later, head into the fully-equipped kitchen/diner to help rustle up tasty meals that the whole family can savour around the table.

On sunny days, enjoy the meal alfresco on the decking in the garden where you can raise a toast to your getaway as the sunsets over St Just.

When stars appear overhead, head upstairs to wash off the day’s adventures in the sleek bathroom before sloping off to sleep in one of four king-size bedrooms; one boasts a Smart TV and one an en-suite shower room.

Venture into the heart of St Just to pick up all your self-catering essentials or to take a well-earned break from the kitchen with food at The Commercial or head to Kenidjack to visit The Queen’s Arms.

Head to Porthera Cove, Sennen Beach or Porthcurno Beach to experience glorious golden sands and picturesque views across the water.

Be sure to pay a visit to Land’s End, England’s westernmost point, where you can have your photo snapped by the iconic sign while admiring the unbeatable and uninterrupted views across the sea and rocky coastline.

About the location

ST JUST

Penzance 7.2 miles; St Ives 12.9 miles.

St Just is the nearest town to Land’s End and is situated approximately eight miles west of Penzance. The town itself is an ancient settlement that has a strong mining history and there are several monuments and prehistoric antiquities to visit including the Bronze Age settlement at Cape Cornwall. St Just is ideally located for visitors to explore the far west of Cornwall as it is situated on the edge of the moors and close to the beautiful north coast. In the centre of the town is Plain-an-Gwarry, a theatre used for miracle plays in medieval times, and in more recent times for the Lafrowda Festival.
