  • "Lovely Cornish cottage with amazing views over the fields and out to the Ocean."

    Everything was cleaned and well maintained with a lovely cream tea on arrival. We were a bit cold on the first night but learnt how to wrangle the radiators and wood burner and from then on we were lovely and cosy. St Just is a fantastic village with all the local amenities and the local scenery and cliff top walks were outstanding. Looking forward to coming back again

    I love St Just. It is so near many lovely beaches and outstanding scenic walks as well as interesting art galleries, etc. something for everyone. Glad you liked the cottage and made it cosy. Property Owner
