We had a lovely week’s holiday at Pleasant Cottage. We have stayed in many cottages in St Just and this was one of the nicest. The views to Cape Cornwall and the sunsets are spectacular. The cottage was very comfortable and cosy with everything we needed. Access and parking are challenging with a larger car but there is ample free parking nearby. St Just has a great selection of cafes and the Star Inn is a must. The Kurt Jackson Foundation gallery is superb.

We had a wonderful holiday at Pleasant Cottage. The cottage is located in the village, so food, craft shops and village pubs are in walking distance and there are beautiful walks around the headland just minutes from the house. The house is beautifully decorated with interesting art works, stocked with board games and books, it's so cosy it would be lovely to spend the day reading or sitting in the front garden which looks out across a field to the sea.

Just Perfect!

St Just Holidays

St Just is perfectly situated to explore the breathtaking Cornish coastline. St Just is a traditional Cornish village with a rich history of mining, fishing, and farming, located in the very West of England. Despite it's small size,  St Just has a vibrant, thriving arts community. In the centre of the town you will find the 'Plen-An-Gwary', meaning 'playing place', which is one of only two open air ampitheatres in Cornwall and arguably the oldest working theatre in all of Britain.

Events

Visit St Just in July and you'll be able to take in the atmosphere at the popular Lafrowda festival; a fortnight of family friendly activities including dance workshops and colourful processions which make their way through the crowds.

For a more ancient celebration, Feast Day is a two-day event in November, which celebrates the dedication of the parish church.

Places to visit

As the most westerly town on mainland Britain, St Just is close to the popular attraction of Land's End. Have your photo taken at the famous Land's End signpost, or simply enjoy the breathtaking views and the rugged landscape. Land's End provides the perfect family day-out. 

Tanglewood gardens, just a few miles from St Just, is the perfect place to spend the day, where you'll find quirky sculptures alongside an abundance of wildlife, providing a great place to explore. Read more on our blog: A day out at Tanglewood gardens

Nearby you will find the stunning St Michael's Mount; a tidal island with a fairy-tale castle, which truly is the jewel in Cornwall's crown. The gorgeous beach in the adjacent Mount's Bay is a popular destination for watersports, or simply enjoying the Cornish sunshine.

Things to do in St Just

Beautiful cottage, views of Cape Cornwall, a perfect location. Highly recommended.

A lovely, well equipped cottage in the beautiful St Just. A great spot for so many walks and beaches.

We have been coming back to ' Pleasant Cottage ' for several years now and the standard of the property and the service provided has never been less than excellent. We are looking forward to our next stay.

This is our second visit - and we are going to book for a third time. Excellent position - overlooks fields and then the sea with marvellous sunsets. The lovely town is five minutes walk away and the locals are really friendly.And it’s not touristy.

Comfortable cottage and very tastefully furnished. Good location for access to the village and lots of good walks nearby.

Had a second wonderful stay at Pleasant Cottage. We'll be back for a third. The cottage is spaceous and comfortable abd very tastefully appointed. My dream home.

A lovely cottage in a fantastic location overlooking fields then the sea - and just a few minutes walk to all the amenities of St, Just. We’ve already booked to come again.

A perfectly placed cottage for exploring the area. A short walking distance to St Just village and not too far a walk to Cape Cornwall. The cottage is well equipped, comfortable and felt like home. My family and I had a great time here and hope to return.

This review would list how unhelpful Aspect holidays have been

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very proud of the service we provide, so we take any complaints very seriously and are more than a little disappointed to hear that on this occasion we have fallen short of the high standards that you would expect, and that we set ourselves. There had been an error in our communication at the start of your holiday, and then unfortunately we never received your email that was sent after that, due to a video attachment making the file too big. We can completely understand that this will only have frustrated you more and left you feeling that we were just not responding to you. This would never have been intended and is certainly not our usual standard, and we can only apologise. I know that we have since been in regular contact with you, and I hope that we have been able to restore your faith in our service and standards. Tanya, Customer Services

A comfortable, creatively decorated holiday home, in a fantastic location, close to some of the best beaches in Britain. We really enjoyed our stay.

We absolutely loved our stay at a Pleasant Terrace. It is a stylishly-decorated house designed for comfort and relaxation. Very spacious, the kitchen is well-equipped and very light. The sitting room has big comfortable sofas. The bedrooms are comfortable and the views are absolutely astonishing. We felt very welcome and the house felt like someone’s home, with books and magazines. Although it was very cold outside during our winter break, the house did not take long to heat up thanks to a generous number of heaters. The walls in the area are beautuful, especially the Cot Valley. We love St Just. Thank you for a really lovely break.

Beautiful light and airy house with lovely artwork and quality furnishings.

Overall we had a fantastic relaxing holiday in this house. The house is positioned really well for walking into town but also walking to the beach and coastal walks/Cape Cornwall and driving to Botallack mines, St Ives, Penzance and Porthcurno and Sennen Cove.

Apart from the problems with the iron and bath mixer unit we enjoyed our stay in the cottage-so much so that we have booked it again for later in the year!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay here. We are sorry that you experienced those issues. We have checked everything with the owner, who confirmed that the iron has now been replaced, so thank you for letting us know; and she had a plumber to attend to the mixer unit on the bath during your stay and is pleased to report that all is working perfectly still, so cannot forsee any reason for concern when you return. We look forward to seeing you back here later in the year. Tanya, Customer Services

This area of Cornwall is wonderful especially for dog owners, pubs, cafes etc are so dog friendly, you just need to check restrictions on the beaches. St Just has enough pubs, cafes and shops to make your stay comfortable and lovely walks all around,

A really beautiful cottage, incredibly spacious. Tastefully decorated, comfortable furniture and beds. Spotlessly clean. Really warm and cosy thanks to the amazing woodburner. A five minute walk to the pub and just a little further to Cape Cornwall. Enclosed garden, which was great for our dog. Lovely neighbours and absolutely silent at night and no light pollution, which was bliss. This place is a delight and we can't recommend it highly enough.
