St Just Cornwall

St Just Cornwall

Dog Friendly Places to eat in Cornwall The Gurnards Head

St Just in Penwith Cornwall lies between Penzance Cornwall and Land's End Cornwall and is the most westerly town in Cornwall (see the map below for position). The surrounding windswept countryside does give the feel of a place right on the edge! Previously a mining town St Just is still a busy, although small, town in which a lot of local people live and which still has a feel of a real Cornish town.

Pretty granite buildings line the narrow streets making St Just a nice place to just wander around. St Just has a number of interesting shops, galleries and antique shops and in August the Cape Cornwall Arts and Crafts Exhibition in Aid of Cancer Research is held in Cape Cornwall School which is definitely worth a visit. More information on Cape Cornwall Art and Crafts Exhibition.

St Just has good facilities with two convenience stores, a number of pubs and cafes, local food shops, fish and chips, a growing number of galleries and a beautiful old church in the centre. There is free parking in the middle of St Just Cornwall by the bus station which is signed from the main road and there are toilets here also.

St Just, as well as being an interesting place to visit, is also an excellent base or stop off point to see surrounding West Cornwall where there is a lot to see and do including the famous Land's End, the beautiful little harbour and large golden beach at Sennen, the cute harbour village of Mousehole famous for the Mousehole cat and beautiful Christmas light display, the still active fishing port of Newlyn and St Ives famous for art, special light and beautiful golden beaches.

The walking from St Just Cornwall is good and nearby Cape Cornwall and the Brisons rocks are popular with walkers and photographers. Cape Cornwall is signed from St Just and you can drive down to a small parking area near the Cape, although the road is very narrow, and walk from here.

Cape Cornwall is owned by the National Trust and is England's only Cape (point of land jutting out into the sea). The mining which used to take place here is still evidenced by a chimney stack. Underground mine workings went under the sea and as far out as The Brisons rocks. Imagining the mine working gives a real feel of times lost. The views from The Cape are spectacular and you can see The Brisons Rocks (also referred to as Charles de Gaulle due to the likeness - you will have to work that one out for yourself!) and out towards Land's End.

The road from St Just to St Ives Cornwall is a beautiful drive (although very narrow in parts and full of bends so unless you are comfortable with this kind of driving best avoided). It is reported as being one of the best and most romantic places to view a sunset. There are plenty of places to stop off and enjoy the view. There is a cute little gallery at Morvah Cornwall which has a small cafe and also the Backpackers cafe at Zennor which is dog friendly in the garden and does fantastic cakes. We have also Bella the Beagle on holiday in Cornwallhad a personal recommendation from Bella the Beagle who suggests the Tinners Arms at Zennor. Bella says "Staff are very friendly and always welcome a wagging tail! You can even sleep over...telephone in advance to book a dog friendly table (01736)796927." Thanks Bella!
