Shopping - St. Just has all the main essentials including general stores, butchers, greengrocers and a chemist (but no fishmonger - the best place for fish is Newlyn). Penzance has a wide range of shops now including three supermarkets on the Eastern edge of the town. Falmouth (45 minutes) and Truro (50 minutes) have a greater selection of shops.

Eating - There is a good range of restaurants from "gourmet" to Fish and Chips. There are also Indian and Chinese takeaways in Penzance.

Pubs - There are pubs in Sennen and St.Just. Some have good pub food.

Medical - There is an A&E department at the West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance. There are G.P. practices, dentists and vets in St. Just and Penzance.

Access Information - I am afraid neither cottage is suitable for wheelchair users. First, drive up the farm track, then right over a cattle grid to our gravel parking areas. Then:-
