Cove Cottage Cape Cornwall

Cape Cornwall

Located a stone's throw from St Just, Cape Cornwall is one of only two 'capes' in Britain, the other being Cape Wrath in Scotland. Situated on the South West Coast Path, with walks towards St Ives and Land's End, a climb up the cape headlands to the mining stack reveals breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Cape Cornwall Holidays

Dogs are welcome all year round at Cape Cornwall, and an array of outdoor pursuits including clifftop walking, cycling, swimming and golfing, make it perfect for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors. Self catering holidays in Cape Cornwall are ideal for those looking to relax in a secluded area of West Cornwall.

A brief history

Cape Cornwall is the only Cape so called in England. Up until the 18th century, it was thought that Cape Cornwall was the most westerly point in Britain, until accurate surveying found Land's End to be slightly further West. Cape Cornwall was bought by H.J.Heinz and given to the National Trust in 1987. You will find the ruins of St. Helen’s Oratory here along with a National Trust Car Park and National Coastwatch lookout. Like the lighthouse, Coastwatch plays a vital role in the safety of shipping. Read about the history of the area on our blog: West Penwith - Through the ages.

Things to do

Priest Cove
The popular rocky beach at Priest Cove has a small, man-made tidal pool, which makes a safe place for children to swim and the dog friendly beach makes it an ideal place for a family day out. Priest’s Cove looks out towards the Brisons, where an annual swim from Brisons into Priest’s Cove takes place. The Brisons rock formation, just off the beach is said to resemble Charles De Gaulle in the bath!

Cape Cornwall Golf Course
A par 69 challenge on a natural course ranging across farmland and cliffs with a mix of challenging holes. 
Read more on on our blog post about Golf Courses in West Cornwall.

Ride the Open-Top Bus
If you want to give your feet and legs a rest, you can hop on the No 300 Bus, known as the open-top. The double decker trundles through high-hedged Cornish roads. It goes on a circular route around West Penwith. It's easy to hop on and to hop off. Don't forget that sunscreen!!
