  • "After having a bad previous experience booking through Sykes Cottages and not having an acknowledgment of my concerns for other guests I was pleasantly surprised with the accomodation."

    There were so many little extras which were so appreciated and the owners deserve the credit for renting out their property and giving guests a truly home from home. We have many friends in St. Just who I’m sure will put the word around about “Crinnis”

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay in Away West, St Just."

    The property was well equipped, very spacious, clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable. The only negative for the interior would be the cushions on the couch. They do not stay put when sitting on them, which was quite annoying, but we were seldom in so not a major issue. The property has a driveway which, looking around the town, is unusual and so is a big bonus. It is within walking distance of the centre but is far enough out to be in a good position to walk to the coastal path. If I were to visit St Just again I would definitely consider re-booking.

  • "A home from home."

    Well equipped. The kitchen chairs would benefit from some cushions. Fantastic position to watch the sun setting. Jacky was very helpful when we had an issue with the heating.(Low batteries causing a continuous beep sound) So good to be able to park off road. Hope to return soon.

  • "Great to have an enclosed garden for the dog and the location within walking distance of St Just Town Square was very convenient ."

    Everyone we spoke to was very friendly. On a downside , when we arrived we struggled to park due the width and gradient of the drive and then upon entry to the house we were disappointed with the cleanliness , especially with the additional Covid measures in place . The rug in the living room had crumbs all over it and when we moved it we found a sock underneath . One of the settees was so badly stained , we had to use our own throws to cover it before we felt comfortable sitting on it . This was a shame as the house itself was well equipped and in a good location for exploring the South West of Cornwall.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear the cleaning was not up to the normal high standards at Away West, we would have been happy to have tried to rectify any issues for you during your stay had we known. We have spoken with the owner who will discuss the points raised with their housekeeping team. We are pleased you otherwise enjoyed the house and location. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house in a fab position, walking distance to the shops in St Just and to the coast."

    We enjoyed walking to Cot Valley, Priest Cove, Cape Cornwall and Porth Ledden, all from our comfortable base. The house was well furnished and spacious. A great addition was the parking as many houses in St Just don't have this. Would love to return in the future.

  • "This property was comfy, clean and in a great location."

    We visit St Just a lot to catch up with friends and this house was one of the best we have stayed at. We have 2 larger dogs and it is difficult to find properties that allow us to bring them however, this property was perfect for them. Lots of space and a great back garden. We have booked for July and can't wait to get back.

  • "We had visited this property two years before so we knew what to expect."

    This time we brought four other adults and our dog with us which meant that the house was full. Everything worked out well and certainly met all of our needs. Jacky, the caretaker, was fantastic in organising a plumber when the downstairs toilet needed attention and the problem was sorted within a few hours. We will be back!

  • "Away West is in an excellent location for exploring south west Cornwall."

    The house was comfortable and well equipped. There was also plenty to keep people occupied of the weather wasn’t good....books, jigsaws, games. The Smart TV was a pleasant surprise! The garden was secure for our border terrier although if you have a larger dog who is an escapee, the gate may not have proved a huge deterrent!

  • "A nice enough property."

    Everything inside that you would need on a break away from home. Beds were comfortable. Photographs really quite misleading. Driveway was somewhat difficult to negotiate if you plan on taking more than one vehicle, in reality nothing like the photographs provided. The house was not the cleanest on arrival. The back garden has no privacy and is ok for a dog as long as you stand outside with it. Not very secure. A few other irritations that meant that i was not sorry to leave when the week was up. Not on the same level as other properties I have stayed in via this site.

    The Owner regrets that the cleaning for your visit was not up to the more general 4/4 rating the property receives and will address this with his cleaner. The driveway can comfortably accommodate two medium cars although two large vehicles could be tricky. The garden is enclosed and was dog proof for a terrier but may not be so for a larger dog Property Owner

  • "Just got back from a week at Away West."

    It was a lovely comfy house, with everything we needed. Perfectly situated on the edge of St Just, ideal for walks but near enough to shops and amenities. Will look to book this house again in the future.

  • "The cottage was absolutely superb."

    Very well laid out, excellent facilities, very spacious and fantastic views from a couple of the bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed in terms of utensils too, which with a 2-yr old was a godsend really. The driveway was a little tricky to negotiate on the first day, but perfectly fine after we worked out the best line of approach! All in all, a great holiday that was made all the more better with a fantastic and comfortable cottage that we could call our “home” for the week.

  • "Away West is a great place to stay."

    For us it was an ideal base to walk the coastal foot path from St Ives to Penzance. There were views of the sea from the property. Away West was exceptionally well equipped, the owners had thought of just about everything. It was clean comfortable and spacious. Parking is at a premium in St Just but we had a parking space, all be it, a bit steep and on a corner so turning on to the road was not easy.

    Also the cottage was intensely hot, even when heating was turned off. Ended up leaving on Monday.

  • "Extremely well equipped accommodation."

    Underfloor heating and copious amounts of hot water. Induction hob, double oven, dishwasher, even a slow cooker! Very close to the centre of St. Just, but quiet and relaxing. Always difficult finding accommodation that will allow two dogs, but this property did. Many glorious walks starting from the front doorstep. Black out blinds for the bedrooms would be appreciated if the owners get the opportunity, but that's a personal preference. Milk in the fridge on arrival and tea/coffee/hot chocolate supplied complimentary. Extremely impressed. Many thanks, Simon & Jonathan, Bournemouth

  • "The picture you have of the garden is very misleading!"

    The garden is in fact overlooked by houses on all three sides ... your photo of the garden gives no indication of this, and nor is it mentioned in the description of the property.

The property

Away West is a modern, detached two-storey holiday home, sitting on the edge of the most westerly town in England with breathtaking, far-reaching views over the mighty Atlantic Ocean.

The glorious sunsets seen from Away West are a spectacular sight.

You enter Away West by way of a spacious hallway and on into a light and bright sitting room with comfy sofas and a well equipped modern kitchen with dining area to the rear.

There is also a shower room with WC.

Up a narrow stairway there are three good sized bedrooms, two of which offer superb views, the master bedroom has a 6ft bed and the other bedrooms are both twins.

There is also a family bathroom with bath with shower over.

Outside and to the rear is a large enclosed paved garden, perfect for dining al fresco.

This contemporary detached house has a local beach less than a mile away whilst the stunning Sennen Cove is just 4 miles away where you can learn to surf, visit the lifeboat station or simply indulge in a favourite tipple at the 17th Century inn whilst overlooking the bay.

The whole area is a walker's paradise with the South West Coast Path and Picturesque Cape Cornwall on the doorstep.

It is well worth the steep climb to the top of the Cape to see the wonderful view of the Western Approaches.

Cape Cornwall also has a golf course and indoor swimming pool and at St Just in Penwith there are a range of local independent shops, pubs and cafes.

Further afield and well worth a visit are the Minack Theatre, Chysauster the remains of a Roman settlement and Geevor Tin Mine.

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.
