Self Catering in St Just in Penwith

St Just, Britain’s most westerly town and former centre of mining in West Penwith, sits on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, where the waves crash into the granite cliffs.


The town of St Just is the main centre of population in West Penwith, wit a handful of pubs, a good selection of shops including a butcher and a baker. There’s several cafes and a number of art galleries, plus the usual gift shops.

A special landscape

The area around St Just is dominated by historical relics of bygone eras, many of which are easily visible as you drive or walk through the surrounding countryside. From Neolithic burial tombs to World Heritage mining remains, there’s plenty of history dotted amongst the landscape.

The landscape itself is epic! From the high moors that look down on the town to the jagged coastline that surrounds the town on two sides. There are miles of stunning coastline to explore, with many hidden beaches tucked away, all accessible from the South West Coast Path. The path also gives access to many of the iconic engine houses used in the filming of Poldark, including Botallack, Levant and Geevor. On top of that there’s countless footpaths heading inland onto the open moors where the views are superb.
