Welcome to Chywoon, a typical miner’s cottage in the town of St Just, 8 miles from Penzance and just over 6 miles from Lands End. This cosy mid-terraced cottage offers basic affordable accommodation for up to four adults or three adults and two children; one dog is welcome as well. The bathroom, living room and kitchen are downstairs and the three bedrooms upstairs. There is a small table in the kitchen, however most guests prefer to sit in the living room to eat. The garden has a right of way for neighbouring properties, although this is rarely used and it makes a lovely space to sit out and enjoy the beautiful skies at night. If you are into surfing, equipment can be stored in a shed accessible through a gate leading directly into garden.
This is an ideal location from which to explore the rugged coastline of Cape Cornwall. The coastal paths and walks have evidence of the tin mining that was important in the area years ago. Geever Tin Mine in Pendeen is 2¾ miles away; whilst you are here you can also visit the Pendeen Lighthouse. Just over 6 miles away is Land’s End, which is a brilliant day out for all ages. It’s the most westerly point of the UK and home to the famous signpost, John o’ Groats to Land’s End. Dogs on leads are welcome here, but not allowed in the indoor attractions. Five miles away is Sennen Cove, popular with families as the beach has a gentle slope and rock pools as well as being the most westerly point for surfers - there is a surf school. It has a seasonal dog ban, but around the corner is Gwynver Beach which is dog friendly and much quieter.
Just over 8 miles away is the stunning beach of Porthcurno, with turquoise water and white sand surrounded by cliffs making this one of the most beautiful beaches. Suitable for surfers and experienced swimmers only, due to the steep shelving, and not suitable for people with mobility issues since the trek down to the beach is accessed along a coastal path which is steep. Here you can visit the Museum of Global Communications, celebrating the first undersea telegraph cable.
If you are a fan of the TV series ‘Poldark’ you will be familiar with the landscapes, as there is a lot of history in the area including folk tales of witches at Kenidjack and piskies leading mortals astray. The walk along Kenidjack valley is spectacular ending in a rocky cove where you often see seals 1¼ miles away.
