Holidays in St Buryan

For those looking to explore the west of Cornwall, the pretty village of St Buryan has plenty of foothpaths, and is close to Sennen, Porthcurno, and the fishing ports of Mousehole, Penzance and Newlyn. St Buryan is a truly peaceful place, set amongst farmland and home to a traditional Cornish community.

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
