St Just in Roseland village, Cornwall
St Just in Roseland is given its full name to distinguish from the town of St Just in Penwith in the far west of Cornwall. The differences between the two settlements could not be more marked.
St Just in Penwith is a mining town set on the cliffs of the Lands End Peninsula. The town has a hard edge to it, as for many centuries its inhabitants have had to struggle to earn a living either from tin and copper mining or pitting their wits against the Atlantic storms as fishermen.
St Just in Roseland however is a small riverside village lying on the west of the Roseland opposite Mylor and Falmouth and approximately 3 miles north of St. Mawes. The area feels very tranquil and not at all like its namesake some fifty miles to the west. The village church is very picturesque and photogenic, gracing many a Cornish calendar.
This whole area is an excellent place to use as a base to explore the beautiful Roseland Peninsula as well as the whole of Cornwall. Many visitors have decided on retirement to return to the area to live and house prices reflect that in this sought after location.
