It’s the ideal base to explore the far west of Cornwall and beyond, with rambling walks and quirky shops, artisan cafes and plenty of art galleries close by, all from the doorstep. If you are bringing your four-legged friend they will be in heaven.
This cottage is ideal for families looking for a little extra space or those looking for living areas across the ground floor with only a few steps, making it more accessible. As you enter there is a cosy living area to the left with a wood burner, stairs lead you to the first floor and the well-designed open plan kitchen and dining area to the right; perfect for keeping an eye on little ones or getting friends together. There are two living areas, four bedrooms, three shower rooms and a family bathroom.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite and the family bathroom with a separate rainfall shower.
BOOKING FOR 5
The whole town of St Just is a UNESCO world heritage site and surrounded by wild moors and dramatic coastline. If feeling energetic try exploring the stunning Tinner’s Way running along the coast from Cape Cornwall all the way to St Ives. It’s an ancient route from the Bronze Age and where the tin and copper ore were transported along the way from St Just to Hayle.
St Just is a friendly town that feels lost in time with an array of great local shops, a deli, a butcher, four pubs and a small local supermarket for your everyday needs. Surrounding the town are the most spectacular stretches of coastline and fantastic walks from the doorstep. Sennen Cove with its glorious surfing beach is ten minutes away as is Portheras Cove, a hidden and stunning local’s cove. Travelling further east within twenty minutes you can be in Marazion with its fabulous beach overlooking the famous St Michaels Mount, St Ives, Mousehole and Penzance.
The cottage has a light and airy feel throughout. The second living room to the rear of the cottage has a large TV and is stylishly furnished with a three-seater sofa and two pouffes to relax. Ideal for movie nights or some games together.
To the front of the cottage is the cosy living room which centres around the original clock and wood burner (in the season we will leave you enough logs to get you going for a night or two). Relax after a day exploring on the comfortable three-seater chaise sofa and armchair (the chaise seat can be used as an additional seat instead, as required). There is a large wall-mounted TV.
COOKING & EATING
The kitchen at Penrose Cottage is fabulous and equipped with everything you need to cook up a feast. Overlooking and leading onto the paved garden and opening up to the utility area and the dining room, it’s a social space that ensures you can welcome the whole family to dinner.
The dining table seats up to eight comfortably and the open nature of the kitchen and dining room allows conversations to flow all evening long. On that note, if you would like a special event catered for, please ask as we have some fantastic local contacts.

WHAT GUESTS ARE SAYING...
“Lovely place to stay, very clean, thoughtfully put together. Local area fab, choice of fantastic beaches. Fab bathrooms! Overall 100% recommend”
Vanessa – September 2023
“Check in was easy with clear instructions. The property was very clean and tidy with all rooms made up to a high standard. There was milk in the fridge with Cornish coffee and biscuits which was a nice welcoming touch. Having two distinctively separate areas was perfect for my daughter and fiancé to have their own space but close enough for us to be able to feel together as a family. We fell in love with Cornwall and St Just and a huge part of that was down to Penrose Cottage. We will definitely be visiting again!”
Clive – August 2023
“Beautiful house, equipped with everything we needed. Communication was great with lots of helpful tips and recommendations. The location was perfect to explore beaches and towns- Sennen beach was perfect for our 3 year old as was a day out at Porthcurno beach. We were surprised by how much there was in St Just. A nice park, great ice cream shop and loads of cafes- Cafe Dog and Rabbit was our favourite but you need to book. Overall, a super week and we can’t wait to return.”
Tess – July 2023
“We had a fantastic stay at the cottage and barn. Having the two properties together allowed us to have a great family holiday and celebrate a birthday of one of the guests in style. The renovation has been done so well with much care and attention; we absolutely loved it. Fabulous walks in the area around St Just and also lovely cafes, pubs and restaurants. Would highly recommend Penrose Cottage for a wonderful holiday in Cornwall.”
Kathryn – July 2023
“From start to finish, staying here was brilliant. Great communication and recommendations, beautiful location and every single aspect of the property has been thought out for guest comfort and ease. Lovely option to book both apartments and open up the venue for 2 families, each having their own space (or space for the kids and adults to have some peace and quiet!) Would happily stay here again.”
Mark – May 2023
