St Just in Roseland
St Just in Roseland is just a short hop away from St Mawes.
You’ll pass through it on your way to and from the King Harry Ferry and it’s worth a stop to take in one of the UK’s most beautiful churches.
St Just in Roseland has a 13th Century church set above the tidal creek of St Just Pool with a beautiful churchyard luxuriantly planted with sub-tropical species.
It was described by John Betjeman as ‘to many people the most beautiful churchyard on earth’.
It’s the perfect place to head on a hike from St Mawes and you can even grab a cream tea through the summer in the old nursery site opposite the church car park.
From TripAdvisor: “This Church should be a world heritage site – it knocks the socks off Stonehenge!”
“Beautiful church in an amazing location next to the creek. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.”
