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.

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

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.
