  • "Fabulous house in a beautiful setting!"

    It had everything you could possibly need, and felt like a real ‘home from home’. We were welcomed with beautiful flowers and welcome hamper with lots of local produce, which we loved! And Lorna was attentive and checked in when there was an issue with a nearby houses’ electricity to make sure everything was ok. We didn’t use the hot tub given the weather, but absolutely loved the sauna which was really easy to use! Great walks nearby as well as easy access to drive out and explore. We were also really impressed with St Just and made use of the amenities close by, easily walkable. Lovely place to stay and we hope to visit again soon! Thanks again!

  • "We would certainly recommend The Riblows to friends and will be rebooking in 2025!"

    The property is very comfortable, spacious and just as it appears on the website. I particularly enjoyed being able to warm up in the sauna after a day out on the coastal path. If you like walking, it’s about 5 mins walk out of the farm to get onto the south west coastal path and seriously good views. We spotted seals throughout the week so don’t forget your binoculars. For those travelling with dogs. The garden is enclosed and secure. There isn’t any traffic in the farm apart from those living/staying there and the cottage faces away from the track. Our dog loved the underfloor heating and would find his spot of maximum coziness to flop out when we came back. Probably our most dog friendly cottage to date.

    The accommodation is beautiful, of a very high standard, warm and cosy. It is located in a wonderful part of Cornwall with fabulous beaches only a short distance away. The owners live near by and provided a very warm welcome and extremely helpful.

  • "Wonderful stay with friends at The Riblows."

    Perfect, rural setting, yet within walking distance to the nearest village St Just. The cottage was well-equipped and super comfortable, toasty warm in January. Plenty of space for six adults... large kitchen diner, and cooking facilities were ideal. Huge sofas, a cinema room, lovely dog 'room' under the stairs (very cute) and the sauna and hot tub made for a relaxing weekend. The owners were super helpful and provided a luxury welcome box, which was much appreciated and very generous. Highly recommend!

  • "I recently stayed at Riblows Cottage and had a fantastic time."

    The cottage boasts excellent facilities, and everyone enjoyed them – the sauna was my personal favorite. The informative welcome pack and the amazing welcome package, particularly appreciated after a long drive, made the experience even more enjoyable. The area is charming, with convenient walking distance to shops and numerous sightseeing places. I would 100% recommend booking this cottage, and would hope to visit again in the future.

  • "The Riblows was fantastic, our second visit and no t our last."

    We stayed over Christmas truly magical. The Riblows feels like a home and not a holiday let, so many beautiful touches. Top of the range appliances, kettle, coffee machine toaster and food mixer. Welcome packs containing local artisan products. The weather was very windy and wet but that did not stop us from enjoying the great location and walking our dogs. Exceptional place to stay and hosts.

    What a stunning place! Fabulous location, beautiful house and high quality furnishings.The welcome pack is unbelievable, full of gorgeous local produce, including vegetables, fruits and cheese. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook and eat in, so well equipped with everything that you could possibly need. The owner Harvey was lovely, really helpful, offering suggestions for great places to eat and visit. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The wifi was great and the cinema room is a fantastic addition. This really is a top quality place to visit and we can't wait to return.

    Very clean, good kitchen facilities with all utensils you could need and the general attention to detail is great. Very cosy and the hot- tub is an added bonus. We had a well behaved dog with us this time and the special bed location under the stairs is really appreciated. St Just is a good location, with plenty to do do we never got the chance to use the cinema room - maybe next time!!! Can’t wait to go back!!!!

  • "We were so looking forward to our holiday staying at The Riblows."

    On arrival, we were very impressed with the beautiful decor and luxurious furnishings and overall presentation of each room. We were blown away by the very thoughtful and generous welcome pack containing fresh fruit, vegetables, salad, crisps, chocolate, cheese, bread, eggs, butter, milk, fruit juice & muesli. Absolutely outstanding. Each of the bedrooms were very tastfully decorated and comfortable along with the practical ensuites with added touches of nice soap and room fragrance. The family enjoyed the cinema room with the added bonus of sweets and drinks supplied in the fridge. The outdoor space was Incredible. Lovely garden furniture to use along with superb views of the sea and surrounding countryside. Our dogs thoroughly enjoyed the safe enclosed garden. We visited some beautiful places, Cape Cornwall just a short walk away with stunning views of the dramatic coastline. We went to Sennen cove and then on to Gwynver beach around the next cove, stunning. We had a lovely day on the beach at Portcurno, beautiful sweep of golden sand and dog friendly, sea was rough so no swimming sadly but spectacular waves. Mousehole very pretty, but does get very busy, but worth a visit for the lovely shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Cornwall which was made extra special by staying in such a beautiful holiday property. Would highly recommend.

The property

St Just 0.9 miles.

Resting in a breath-taking setting of Bollowal between Cape Cornwall and St Just, The Riblows is a stunning, three-bedroom farmhouse, offering elegance and luxury.

A wood fired hot tub and timber barrel sauna make for the ultimate getaway experience.

Enjoying sea views from the pet-friendly garden, whilst thoughtfully-furnished throughout with state-of-the-art appliances, plush soft furnishings, complimentary toiletries, and renowned, local artwork, The Riblows offers a magnificent dwelling for a family of six, looking to explore the delights of Cornwall.

Arrive to a gated, private driveway, providing plenty of space to park up, unload your belongings and benefit from the free electric car charging; take this time to appreciate the pretty blooms, luscious lawn and tranquil setting enveloping your new home.

Step indoors and turn left to be welcomed by the fully-equipped kitchen/diner, housing a selection of appliances to ease your stay, with original beams overhead and a lovely bench-style dining table to gather around; a utility and cloakroom reside nearby for convenience.

On cool evenings, retire to the sitting room featuring a rustling woodburning stove, sumptuous sofas to sink into, and a wide selection of books to delve into with a glass of wine in hand; film fanatics will love the chance to spend the evening in the private cinema room, offering a wonderful ambience as you watch your favourite movie.

The Riblows even has an incredible Scandinavian sauna for the ultimate relaxation experience to make your holiday all the more special.

If the weather allows, spend your time outdoors by dining upon the decked area, lighting the barbecue, enjoying a picnic upon the lawned area, or simply soaking in the wood-fired hot tub, with sea views in the backdrop.

Three well-appointed bedrooms await, starting with a ground-floor king-size bedroom, with elegant furnishings and a sleek en-suite shower room.

Travel upstairs to reach the twin bedroom (zip/link) also benefitting from an en-suite, whilst the master super-king-size features an indulgent, roll-top copper bath for late-night soaks; plush bath robes are on offer to cosy up in after your pamper.

If you can tear yourself away, your nearest hub of amenities lies in St Just, a short walk or drive away, where you'll locate a selection of bakeries, art galleries, convenience stores, cafes, and pubs, or join the South West Coast Path, ready to discover an abundance of secret coves and breath-taking bays across the Cornish coastline.

Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a World Heritage Site, with rare breed cattle grazing the surrounding farmland, the landscape really doesn't disappoint.

Direct access to the South West Coast Path means the abundance of secret coves and breathtaking bays are only a short walk away, including Cape Cornwall, England's only Cape.

If you're a fan of music and the arts, be sure to coincide your visit to the summer months to attend the annual Lafrowda Festival, a vibrant festival held in St Just in July.

For further seaside vistas, spend the day in Penzance, a haven for foodies with winding streets dotted with independent shops and eateries, art galleries and taverns, or if you'd prefer a leisurely afternoon, Cape Cornwall Golf Club is nearby, featuring an indoor swimming pool, gym and golf course.

Carefully furnished with a taste of luxury throughout, book your own Cornish retreat at The Riblows.

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.
