    Alex was there too welcome us and to show us around. Everywhere was spotless and there was all that you needed in the cottage. We will definitely be returning to this lovely location.

  • "Cot Valley cottage is an exceptional, secluded, modern property set in the heart of a beautiful, idyllic, valley a short walk from the coast with nearby access to the South West coastal path."

    To say that this cottage is situated in paradise is no exaggeration. When sitting outside there is the calming sound of the nearby stream running along side the patio through the valley leading to the sea. The sound of bird song and nature is bountiful. The inside of the cottage is stunningly decorated with a high quality kitchen, bathroom and furnishings throughout the cottage. The owner Alex was lovely, very helpful and provided an excellent supply of equipment for our self catering stay. A wonderful welcome hamper was much appreciated. We cannot rate this cottage highly enough and it has to be the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. It is set in a dream location, only a five minute walk to the sea and conveniently located for a lovely twenty minute walk into St Just.

  • "Quiet and tranquil spot; Cot Valley is a special place."

    Recommendation to use the footpath walk to Carrallack Lane into St Just - picturesque, safer to walk and overall less steep to walk up than the road.

  • "We had a very relaxing break at Cot Valley Cottage, very quiet and secluded."

    Drive down to the property can be tricky, passing places have not been maintained on the last bit going down to the property. Lovely walk up to St Just and down to the beach. Perfect for exploring Cornwall and close to the Coastal Walks. The property is immaculate and very well fitted out. Alex and Alec were very welcoming.

  • "Superb holiday in beautiful location."

    Excellent accommodation which was clean and well equipped. The cottage is around a mile from the centre of village of St Just, and about a quarter of a mile from the sea. The peaceful location is perfect for those who enjoy walking, and is best suited to those with a moderate level of fitness. Great location for birdwatching and photography. The shoreline and cliff walks at Porth Nanven are a great place to see and hear Cornish Chough in their natural environment. Altogether an enjoyable and memorable holiday.

  • "A very comfortable stay in a quiet spot."

    We knew the area well and were keen to explore more of the walks in and around Cot Valley and the beautiful surrounding area. Alex and Alec were charming and welcoming hosts. They had made every effort to make our stay a good one and, I know, if there had been any problems, they would have remedied them immediately. The cottage is down a narrow lane, which, may not suit everyone but it's not busy and we were able to pass up and down with no problem..other than trying to avoid rather a lot of birdwatchers.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at Cot Valley Cottage."

    It is perfectly situated for anyone who wants to leave the car parked for a week and wants to walk the South West Coastal Path. St Just is only a 15 minute walk up the lane (past the Llamas) for all your grocery needs. There is also a very good chippy in the square. The cottage is extremely well designed, beautifully furnished and has everything you need. Alex and Alec gave us a very warm welcome. They are very thoughtful and genuinely want you to have a good stay. The sea and one of the best sunsets in the country is only a 10 minute walk down the unspoilt Cot Valley. The area has lots of wildlife especially Cornish Choughs, Kestrels and buzzards. If you are lucky you can see the bats as you walk back up the valley after sunset. We spent a week here and really enjoyed it and would not hesitate to go back.

The property

With dreamy surroundings and a beautiful interior, this romantic retreat for two is the perfect place to escape and unwind.

Cot Valley is a well kept secret; a lush sub tropical valley with just a handful of houses, it runs down to the sea at Porth Nanven Cove.

Step inside and discover an open plan living space and a serene bedroom with picture windows looking out to the stunning National Trust owned Architectural Heritage Site opposite.

The decor is contemporary calm, with a pocket sprung memory foam bed, crisp linen, fluffy towels and bathrobes ensuring a restful stay.

Outside is a small patio with garden furniture for relaxing and dining.

The sea is just 10 minutes' walk away so you can enjoy a morning swim followed by breakfast on the sunny terrace beside the stream.

Sitting pretty in deepest West Cornwall, the immediate surrounds are tranquil and green.

It is easy to understand why it is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it is also a Site of Special Scentific Interest.

Less than a mile up the lane is the ancient town of St Just, the most westerly in Britain.

This friendly little place has several good pubs, cafes and delicatessens as well as several art galleries, including Kurt Jackson's Jackson Foundation.

Fine dining pubs and restaurants are popping up all over West Cornwall so head to The Beach Restaurant at Sennen Cove or The Old Coastguard Hotel in Mousehole for a culinary treat.

Wave chasers can surf at nearby sandy beaches Sennen Cove or Gwynver or head on around this dramatic stretch of coastline past Land's End to Porthcurno.

St Ives and Penzance are also within easy driving distance.

Each very different, these coastal towns are both worthy of a day trip.

For simpler pleasures, don your walking boots and head out on foot to explore this incredible corner of the county.

Cot Valley Cottage is perfect for walkers, beachcombers, golfers, artists, romantics and breaks at any time of year.

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.
