“Have to say it was a pleasure from start to finish… I am instructed, by my mother who came with me, to book again in the new year asap. A great idea. St Just has all you need. Three pubs, one with a terrific beer garden, chip shop, post office and of course Clemos, the shop that has everything. Butcher, greengrocer and a couple more eateries… best of all The Dog & Rabbit Cafe… Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. Priests Cove lovely place to sit and think and to watch the sun go down… Suited us perfectly. See you again soon…”
