Simple yet stylish, Sixteen Fore Street is the perfect retreat for couples and friends looking to explore Cornwall's magical far west. This traditional granite cottage is situated close to Cape Cornwall in the vibrant market town of St Just. It is wonderfully placed for coastal escapades and discovering the rugged character of real-life Poldark's country.
A superbly convenient position, Sixteen Fore Street sits beside the road, paces from the bustling town square with its eclectic pubs/restaurants, cafes, galleries and shops. Bliss for ramblers, you can walk from the door to the spectacular South West Coast Path which leads to surfy Sennen Cove in the west and Botallack in the east, an iconic cliff-top engine house where the BBC's Poldark mine scenes were filmed. For the less energetic, there are secret beaches at Priests Cove and Cot Valley or hop in the car and follow the scenic coast road to St Ives with its world class beaches, cobbled streets lined with boutique shops, award winning art galleries and tempting cafes, inns and restaurants. Penzance, widely recognised as the new food capital of Cornwall, is just 10 minutes drive and Lands End, St Michael's Mount and the open air Minack Theatre are a 20 minute drive.
Newly renovated to a high standard from tip to toe, the design is traditional, timeless and elegant. Natural finishes, touchable textures, ornate lighting and antique furniture exemplify the relaxed look and vintage appeal. Immaculately presented and thoughtfully designed, the sitting room with a connecting doorway to the dining room is the social hub. The sitting room has a sofa and armchairs, antique furniture, fresh flowers, local artwork and, for ultra cosiness, a granite inglenook fireplace with a wood burner. The kitchen is modern and well equipped with essential dishwasher, coffee machine and washer drier for a relaxed break. The sleek bathroom is also located on the ground floor. There are two good-sized double bedrooms on the first floor and a WC for added convenience. Both bedrooms are calm and uncluttered with statement metal bed frames topped with deep mattresses and soft cotton bed linens. The outside space to the rear is a glorious suntrap, equipped with garden furniture for alfresco meals and idle time.

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.
