Veryan village, Cornwall
Veryan is a very picturesque village situated within the highly recommended Roseland Peninsula of Mid Cornwall. It takes its name from St. Symphorian, which has, over the years been anglicised to Veryan. The village lies a short distance from the south Cornish coast, and its inhabitants would have been involved in fishing or farming. Tales of Veryan's former villagers concerning pirates, smuggling and contraband still survive from times gone by to entertain visitors to the area.
Veryan's five whitewashed round houses are very photogenic and adorn many calendars and postcards. They were built around the turn of the eighteenth century under instruction of the vicar of Veryan, one Jeremiah Trist.
As the farming industry declines, Veryan has turned itself more towards the tourist trade. There are several fine beaches around this area with Pendower and Carne beaches, in the shadow of Nare Head, probably the best choices.
