  • "Lovely property, nice location, our second visit and look forward to the third."

    The owner was very friendly and welcoming.We would recommend this property highly. One constructive comment would be that the handbasin in the bathroom is very small making it difficult to wash/shave without splashing water.

  • "The Old Studio has great character and is in a lovely location."

    It is small but ideal for 2. Everything you need is provided and Louisa is a perfect host. Really good base for touring this part of Cornwall and with St Just itself being a short walk away it is easy to buy whatever you need for your stay. Also good food at the Kings Arms and the Dog and Rabbit.

  • "We have stayed in many cottages for 2 and whilst the old studio is small, it is by far the best equipped and most luxurious of all the other 4/5 star ones."

    It has quality high end brands whist being cosy and characterful. It’s a great location being able to walk to the pub across a footpath and being tranquil. We did 3 different coastal walks (stunning) direct from the cottage. Bus services are good too. For non walkers there is lots to do too. Would definitely return and recommend. Louisa is a thoughtful and generous host.

  • "No account taken of details in my file about allergies."

    Called you twice. First: seemed helpful and called back when I queried hairdryer which wasnt in the details sent. Called back and said no hairdryer. So I packed one adding to my luggage. Got there to find there was a hairdryer. Second call about allergic to feathers on the Bex. Unhelpful on the phone - began the conversation with what you couldn’t do.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry hear you had a few issues during your stay. Unfortunately we can never guarantee there will be a hair dryer at the property incase something happens to it from stay to stay and there is no obligation for an owner to provide one. We would advised guests to check before booking if a property has feather pillows/duvets to avoid disappointment upon arrival. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Property Owner

  • "Super cosy studio, stylishly equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay."

    The location was great with lovely walks straight from the door. There is a footpath to St Just which takes about 10 minutes where there are numerous shops, cafes, pubs etc to wonder around. Don't miss the Kurt Jackson gallery if you are interested in art. I particularly appreciated the beautiful books in the studio on rainy days. Lovely beaches and coastal walks all around. Friendly, helpful host.

The property

St Just 0.5 miles.

Located off-the-beaten-track on the edge of St Just, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a UNESCO World Heritage site, this former artist studio, dating back to 1840, has been tastefully renovated by the owners, who reside in the main house close by.

The Old Studio is a comfortable and peaceful property overlooking rolling fields, ideal for a couple who enjoy outdoor adventure, with many coastal walking and cycling routes available - not to mention wild swimming spots.

The accommodation is reverse-level and the entrance is on the first floor, with a compact open-plan living area with a woodburner and an apex ceiling and dual aspect windows creating a light filled space.

Downstairs there is a sumptuous bedroom with an en-suite shower room with fluffy towels.

A stable door leads from the bedroom to the courtyard garden for sundowners.

Nancherrow is close to the spectacular coastline at Cape Cornwall and the historic mining town of St Just.

A rare find for ramblers, beachcombers, bird-watchers and peace seekers.

Walk from the door through Kenidjack Valley, dotted with mining ruins, to the sea and South West Coast path.

See the iconic engine houses at Botallack where the Poldark mine scenes were filmed and head back via the prehistoric stone circle at Tregeseal.

You can walk to St Just and its traditional pubs serving food, cafes, galleries and curio shops and stock up on provisions at the supermarket, baker, butcher and greengrocer.

For epic views climb the cape next to the secluded sand and pebble beach at Priest's Cove.

For rolling surf and a wide stretch of white sand, head for Sennen Cove.

Follow the scenic coast road to St Ives for galleries, including the Tate, as well as boutique shops and restaurants serving the freshest fish.

St Michael's Mount, Land's End and The Minack, Cornwall's world famous open air theatre, are also a short drive.

Return home to luxurious simplicity and rustic charm, perfect for a couple looking for some peace and quiet in idyllic surroundings.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


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.
