Holidays in Pendeen

Once a thriving mining area, Pendeen is home to  the award winning Geevor Tin Mine Museum, which was one of the last mines in the country to close. Retaining the feel of a traditional Cornish village, and with stunning scenery on the doorstep, Pendeen is perfect for a self catering summer holiday, out of season visit, or short break.

Although secluded, theres still plenty on offer in this part of West Cornwall. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Pendeen is also recognised as a site of special scientific interest and a world heritage site. Pendeen is the perfect place to explore the ancient sites of Chun Castle and Chun Quoit, and the rugged coastline for which North Cornwall is renowned. Walkers will be in their element with access to the South West Coast Path, and many inland walks.

Things to do near Pendeen

Levant Mine and Beam Engine

Visit this National Trust attraction, and you can see the historic steam-powered beam engine in action, explore the underground tunnel and discover more on the family trail, at one of Cornwall's most famous mines.

Geevor Tin Mine

Another popular attraction in Pendeen is Geevor, an old tin mine which has since been preserved and now serves as a museum to Cornwall's rich industrial past. With breathtaking views, and plenty to explore, it provides a great day out for the whole family.

Yew Tree Gallery

The Yew Tree Gallery near Pendeen features displays of locally made pottery, jewellery, scluptures and art work. There is also a sclupture garden, with herb garden and views across rolling fields.

Farmers market

The fornightly farmers market in Pendeen provides an insight into the Cornish way of life, offering local produce and a relaxed atmosphere, and Trewellard Meadery is just down the road where you can sample fruit wines and top notch grub in a traditional setting. Read more about Pendeen farmers market on our blog.

Pendeen Lighthouse

Another popular attraction in the area is Pendeen lighthouse, a dramatic landmark which once housed Britain's second largest set of foghorns. With the South West Coast Path passing to the south, it makes an enjoyable stop-off point on a coastal walk.

Portheras Cove 

Portheras Cove is just a short walk from the lighthouse, which is one of Cornwall hidden gems. This gorgeous sandy cove is a hideaway for locals, and is also home to a small colony of seals!

We loved our stay - beautiful cottage

A lovely properly in a great location.

The beds were super comfy and a fabulous shower! The garden is also a bonus.

Tricky to find, as it is located down a small alley/lane. But once there all is great.

The North Inn does good food, but be prepared to wait to be served after all the locals!! But rude but thee you go.

The Commercial at St Just sells wonderful food, especially local burgers. Stunning!

The house was absolutely perfect. It is a beautiful cottage with fantastic sea views. Perfectly located for walks along the coast path. It is fully equipped for both humans and dogs with a brilliant enclosed garden which the dog loved and with lovely sea views which we loved. The beds are very comfortable which helped for a good night's sleep after a long day of walking! The team at Aspects holiday are friendly and so helpful. We have had a fabulous holiday and would definitely recommend Tesen Gales and Aspects Holidays.

Loved Tesen Gales. Views wonderful. In real wild cornwall. So comfortable, characterful and peaceful. Also brilliantly well appointed. You do need special parking skills, however.. but it's also very well connected with buses nearby. Great for walkers and lovers of unspoilt coastline. Decent proper pub only a short walk away.

From the moment we walked in we felt relaxed. It is a beautiful cottage with amazing views and very comfortable. We will be booking again. Aspects Holidays are a lovely company and always professional and helpful.

A delightful cottage in an excellent position very near the SW coastal path. There is an excellent small Spar at the top of the road which was extremely well stocked next to a lovely chip shop. Can’t vouch for the pubs as we don’t drink but I believe the North Star does excellent curries. The transport connections are great which means walks on the coastal path and a bus back to base are a breeze. Highly recommended.

We loved our stay at Tesen Gales, the cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Our dog loved the garden (and the log burner) and the views out to sea are amazing. Pendeen is a great place to explore local heritage so be sure to check out the old tin mines which are a short walk from Tesen Gales. The lighthouse is also a fab place to visit with lovely coastal walks to boat cove, Portheras Cove and beyond. We will definitely be returning.

Beautiful spacious cottage home from home. Wonderful location Cottage was very clean and well equipped.Really enjoyed our holiday.

Accommodation is just perfect. Two great local beaches, 2 mile coast walk, one with ramp access, the other is not suitable for those with mobility impairments. Can drive and park at the lighthouse then 200 yards along coast path. Large tin mine area 5 min walk from the cottage. Can recommend visits to Mousehole & Sennen.

A lovely cottage with stunning views. Everything in the cottage was excellent quality. Would love to come back in the summer and make use of the lovely garden. Pendeen is a lovely village we just felt at home here. St just is also a lovely Village with some quaint shops.

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. The village is quiet and was a great base to explore this more remote area. The views are magnificent from the kitchen window and upstairs adding to the feeling of being away from it all. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. It was a lovely place to come back to after a day out. We would thoroughly recommend staying here.

We stayed in Tesen Gales with our three children. It was immaculate and an extremely comfortable stay. The description and photos don’t do it justice. From the kitchen window you get an unspoiled view of the sea and the sunset at night is incredible. The gardens are enclosed and very safe for children and pets. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with all utensils. We spent most days out and about. St. Ives is about 20 minutes drive and Mousehole is another good day out.
