Tean Cottage St Buryan

£392 - £990 per week

Set within a delightful little row of painted, Cornish Cottages in the village of St Buryan, is this lovely, family friendly holiday home, with its stunning conservatory that overlooks a well maintained garden with its own summerhouse. The pretty village of St Buryan, which has a superb local pub serving good food and local ales, is just three and a half miles away from Porthcurno with its breathtaking beach, amazing views and the famous, open air, Minack Theatre.

Just three miles in the opposite direction, will take you to the sweeping golden sands of Sennen Cove, with its beachside restaurant or, for more traditional fare, there is also 'The Old Success Inn'. For those up for an energetic walk, you can take the coastal path all the way to Lands End, or why not take book a surf lesson with the surf school, situated right on the beach at Sennen. End your day, watching a beautiful summer sunset as you taste the culinary delights served at The Beach cafe situated on the water's edge, before heading back to Tean Cottage to plan out your next days adventure.

Tean cottage is a very well equipped and cosy cottage and the layout worked really well for us with the separate downstairs bedroom and bathroom annex allowing everyone a bit of their own space. Excellent location for exploring Penwith, the far west of Cornwall with all three coasts reachable in 20 mins drive. Nice to stay in a village environment that isn't dominated by tourism. Enjoyed walks from the house to the south coast. We really appreciated the extra efforts from the housekeeper to make our stay safe during the pandemic, the cottage felt very clean when we arrived.

St Buryan Holidays

The centre of the village is dominated by the Grade I listed church,  which features the heaviest peal of six bells anywhere in the world! The church has the tallest tower in the area and if you’re lucky enough to be there on Tower Open Day and the weather is fine, you can see for miles. 

While self catering in St Buryan, be sure to take a visit to the St Buryan Inn; a traditional county pub, serving up good pub food in a relaxed atmosphere, with a selection of Cornish ales on offer. There's also a corner shop for all your essentials whilst staying in a holiday cottage in St Buryan. 

The parish is scattered with neolithic activity, such as the Merry Maiden stone circle, The Pipers standing stones, many burial chambers and ancient holy wells. Read more on the history of the area on our blog: West Penwith - Through the ages.


Summer festivities include ploughing competitions and horse shows, which provide an enjoyable family day out. St. Buryan Rally at the end of July is a fantastic country day out.

Things to do near St Buryan

St Buryan is well situated to take advantage of the popular tourist attractions such as the Minack Theatre and St Michael's Mount.

Be sure to visit the nearby St Loy's Cove; a rocky beach which is accessed through a beautiful wooded valley. It's nearly always quiet too, making it great for taking in the surroundings in a peaceful location. 

For more info and other ideas on what to do during your stay in St Buryan, read our blog on Days out around Penzance

With all this in mind it is easy to see why this popular tourist destination is perfect for a self catering summer holiday, short break or out-of-season visit.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Very good accommodation and service. Thank you

Mar 2020

Have stayed at Tean Cottage previously and the standards have not dropped. It is a lovely clean, fully equipped cottage, ideally situated and a very good Welcome Pack!!!

Dec 2019

A comfortable well equipped property ideally situated for our purpose. Excellent communication with travel company

Sep 2019

Tean Cottage lived up to our expectations and it was very cosy and ideally situated for us and very close to the beaches. We had a very enjoyable stay and the weather was amazing. We would definitely recommend this lovely little cottage to anyone who wishes to stay there.

Jun 2019

Couldn't fault things really. The cottage was perfect for our needs and as stated earlier, the 'welcome pack', was the best yet in any cottage we have stayed in, by a long way.

Aug 2018

The cottage was perfect for entertaining in the kitchen, wet wintery walks coming home to the log fire and the atrium/conservatory was a real bonus for added space and somewhere to generally hang out looking out at the sky even though dull and raining. Shame we didn't get to use the garden due to the weather but I'm sure it would have been a sun trap.

Mar 2017

A lovely cottage in a fantastic village. Thank you x

Nov 2015

I have to say Tean Cottage exceeded our expectations. We had a lovely stay, the property was perfect - exactly what we were looking for. I could genuinely not recommend it enough.

I have been meaning to write a review for weeks, sorry it's taken so long. Please share this with the owners. Having stayed in a number of 'over priced' and underwhelming cottages throughout the UK it was excellent to find one that I think fitted the bill exactly. Well priced, extremely comfortable and delivering exactly what it had set out to deliver. The cottage is beautiful and extremely well maintained and the fact it catered so well for children also was really appreciated. The cottage and its comfort would be well enough to get a great review from me and my family, however, the additional thought and gesture to provide wine, pizza's, bread and my favourite - the cream tea's on arrival just topped-off the great feel this cottage provided. An excellent touch that just enables the holiday (particularly after a long journey from Scotland!) to get off to a great start.

We would certainly hope and would like to be able to stay again in the future and have recommended the cottage to friends already.

We had a lovely break, seeing good friends get married nearby and staying at this cottage made the holiday, with 2 young children, go smoothly; enabling us to relax as hoped.

Much appreciated, thank you!

Nov 2015

Tean cottage is the perfect holiday cottage its like home from home. Its located in a very lovely villiage close to many beaches. The welcome pack was very generous and was a pleasant surprise.

Oct 2015

Tean Cottage is one of the nicest cottages that we have ever stayed in. Clean and comfortable with everything to a high standard. We loved the welcome items and the availability of tea/coffee etc. Lovely private garden......a lovely holiday
