The Old Stone Store has been converted into a cosy cottage in St Just in Penwith, just a few miles from Land's End.
The cottage is very well equipped, has two bedrooms, a double and a twin, and can sleep four people.The ground floor has a hand-crafted kitchen with a dining table for four, a utility/laundry room, and a glass roof sun room/sitting room. The bathroom has a bath and shower, and there is a small seating area in the front yard, which has shared access.
The cottage is a five-minute stroll from the town centre, where there is a large free car park, but there is usually on street parking outside the property.
The stairs are wide and un-gated, so are not safe for very young children. Amenities include: Wifi, TV and DVD player, heating, gas hob and fan oven, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Linen and towels are provided, but please bring your own beach towels.
The cottage is situated in a quiet residential street on the outskirts of town, and sits close to the coast in the centre of historic tin mining country, now designated a World Heritage Site. Stunning local beaches include the beautiful Sennen Cove and Porthcurno. St Ives can be reached by car along the glorious coastal road, or by bus (open-topped on fine days). A short walk downhill takes you through farmland to Cot Valley, or to Cape Cornwall, where small fishing boats still work out of Priest's Cove.
The coastal path is perfect for seeing wildlife and there are sightings of seals, dolphins and rare birds including the famous Choughs. The South West Coastal Path stretches North and South along some of the most beautiful cliffs in the country.
St Just is a vibrant community, with a rich history in mining and antiquities, and has many local events throughout the year. There is a good selection of galleries, shops, pubs and cafes and an abundance of walks along the coast as well as many other places of interest within easy reach. It is a popular base for cycling, horse riding, climbing, and various water sports. For a small town, the facilities are good: butchers, bakers, greengrocer, hardware store, library, doctor's surgery, hairdressers, beauty salon, taxi, and local supermarket open 7 til 10, 7 days a week. There is also a small airfield just up the road, offering scenic coastal flights, and trips to the beautiful Isles of Scilly.
