The property

A country cottage in the heart of the vibrant village of St Just, Churchgate Cottage has all the ingredients for a revitalising break. Just a mile from the coast, St Just is the most westerly town in England with a unique character and a friendly atmosphere. In a peaceful spot by the church, the cottage is within a few level yards of the pretty town square which is dotted with local shops including a bakery, delicatessen, several pubs and six art galleries.

The nearest small beach at Cot Valley is a hidden and little known gem at the bottom of a beautiful lush valley making it the perfect picnic spot. For those who prefer a wide stretch of sand Sennen Cove and Porthcurno are also within easy driving distance. Overwhelmingly appealing, on a sunny day either one could be mistaken for the Caribbean with white sands and turquoise waters. There are incredible walks on the doorstep to Cape Cornwall or along the rugged south west coast path towards Lands End in the west and Pendeen lighthouse in the east. Penzance is just a ten minutes away but we recommend the drive east along the coastal road to St Ives for a day of browsing boutique shops and galleries or sampling fine seafood in one of the many restaurants which line the harbour.

Immaculately presented and carefully planned the open plan living accommodation forms the hub of Churchgate Cottage with a lovely wood burning stove to gather around. Upstairs are a master bedroom with a vast 6' bed and a twin which share the family bathroom. A single bedroom on the ground floor and en-suite wet room will suit independent teenagers or those who prefer not to climb the stairs. There is a sun-trap garden to the rear of the cottage perfect for evening drinks and sunny breakfasts.

About the location

ST JUST

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.
