Mrs Martin August 2023
We choose this cottage for a last minute break and were very happy with it. We particularly liked it's location close to everything St Just has to offer. Breakfast in the cafe opposite was wonderful. The butchers sells very tasty pasties. We'd recommend taking a picnic on the coast walk from St Just to Land's End and getting the bus back.
Mr Mann August 2023
Beautiful apartment with everything needed for a great holiday. Owners, Mike & Gill provided milk and cake on arrival after a long journey. Kept in touch by text . Tegen's location is ideal in a quiet road with the main village square a 1 minute walk away . St Just is a small bustling village with a great vibe and a great bus service (£2), ideal to leave car in free car park ( 3 minute walk from Tegen ). We would definitely return. Alan & Liz
Ms Greenwood July 2023
This is a lovely place to stay in a beautiful part of Cornwall. The cottage apartment is in the heart of St Just, yet very quiet. An ideal base to explore this area. Beautifully furnished, comfortable bed and sofa. Light and airy, yet also cosy. We enjoyed our week very much, even though we had some very wet days, this was the perfect place to relax and read our books without feeling closed in.

Mr Gardiner June 2023
We found Tegen to be full of light, yet cosy. All of our Cornish friends who visited thought the same. We enjoyed the best holiday we've had for years!
We would most definitely stay at Tegen again, and warmly recommend it to all those searching for holiday accommodation in St Just.
Tegen is ideal for anyone like us who chooses not to drive a car. Take the train to Penzance; take the Tin Coaster bus from the bus station just outside the rail station; and Tegen is situated a short walk away from the bus station. Buses from St Just to PZ leave hourly, as do the Land Coaster buses which go clockwise and anti-clockwise around the Penwith peninsula. [In winter the Land Coaster buses operate every two hours.] There is also the St Just-PZ bus no. 8 which runs six times a day Mon-Sat. This route goes via Sancreed, and many journeys are extended to Tesco's, Sainsbury's and Morrison's supermarkets in Eastern Green, PZ. The heliport for those wishing to visit the Isles of Scilly is in the same area. A bus timetable for the whole of Cornwall is available from the information office at the bus station.
Mrs Saunders June 2023
Tegan is perfect ! beautifully equipped and decorated, very comfortable with welcoming owners, everything is to a very high standard, it is a lovely base to explore the beautiful surrounding area. The very best!
Mrs Gadsby May 2023
We had a wonderful week away staying at Tegen in Saint Just. The apartment was just like the pictures- a lovely, bright, sunny, comfortable apartment, comfy sofa, powerful shower, well equipped to self cater and very clean. The little private terrace caught the morning sun and was lovely to have cuppa whilst listening to the buzz of the little town coming to life. We were fortunate to have glorious sunny weather all week, so we made use of the buses ( I would highly recommend this, the open top coastal is great fun and is very good value for money- currently £2 a single journey or £5 for a day ticket) and we managed to walk all of the coastal path between St Ives and Marazion throughout the week. Although we have been to Cornwall many times it was our first stay in Saint Just and I was pleasantly suprised, a friendly and interesting little town with independant shops and the gallery down the road, lovely little cafes and a short walk to Cape Cornwall and the mines so you really can leave the car behind. The co-op round the corner is handy to pick up bits and the car was parked an easy walk from the apartment in a safe and free location. Agree with all the recommendations for the Dog and Rabbit cafe for delicious food and had a Thali take away from the Old Haberdashery Cafe which has recently opened, it was delicious and I would recommend. There is so much to do and see in the area, definitely recommened a visit to St Michaels Mount and even though it was bank holiday when we were there it was easy to get away from the crowds when walking on the coastal path. We live in a rural area so we were a bit unsure about the noise being located in a town, but it very quiet at night despite being in the centre of town. On top of this we had a warm welcome from Mike and Gill, they left us to it but were there if we needed anything. I had forgotten how beautiful this part of the country was and would highly recommed a stay here. We have been using Classic cottages for years now and I highly recommend them, far better that air b&b and some of the holiday companies that seem to have very pushy marketing strategies. The process of booking is simple and transparent, the descriptions and photos are accurate, they aim to be honest in what to expect. Very glad they have no been swallowed up by one of the other holiday companies- please keep doing what you are doing!!
Mr Boxall May 2023

Mr Harnett December 2021
Our stay at The Tegen over the Xmas period was just what we needed. The owners Mike and Gill had contacted us on the way down to see if everything was OK and quickly got back to us with any questions we had. When we got there, the cottage was so warm and welcoming. We found a Christmas card on top of a tin of freshley made lemon fairy cakes that were worthy of a Paul Hollywood hand shake! They also left us some milk and prosecco in the fridge. The cottage was spotless and the shower was great. The weather wasn't fanatastic but that gave us an excuse to curl up on the comfy sofa and watch films. The WIFI is very fast. When the sun did come out, we took some tips from the pack Mike and Gill had left. A trip to the pretty nearby fishing village of Mousehole is a must. The Dog and Rabbit Cafe, a stone's throw from the cottage, does a fantastic breakfast. We travelled back to London feeling totally rested. We'll definately be returning in the summer!
Mrs Tamplin October 2021
Beautiful accommodation in an ideal location for exploring the beautiful west and further afield. Everything about this place was perfect! Lovely interior, great shower and most comfortable bed ever!
Mr Hough September 2021
We were made to feel very welcome. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Tegen which is perfectly located for amenities and coastal walks. Couldn't have asked for more.
Ms Hulett August 2021
Very happy with Tegen. Lovely apartment a stones throw from the square with all the shops and pubs yet a 3 mins walk to countryside. Endless walks from the property and an art gallery in the same road. Excellent.

Lovely cottage for two people who want to be in the heart of the Lands End area with loads to do. St Just has very good infra structure even in the middle of Winter
Miss Hewlett December 2019
Beautiful accommodation in a great central location for reaching the north and south of that part of Cornwall. Nothing was further than 30 minutes in a car, and some great walking too! Perfect.
Mrs Livermore September 2019
Very comfortable flat in an excellent location. Less than 2 mins walk to several pubs, great cafe for breakfast immediately opposite. Also close to Cape Cornwall and SW coast path for excellent walking.
We had an excellent week staying in Tegen despite the wet weather and would certainly consider staying there again.
Mr Burges September 2019
A lovely stay - thank you.
Mrs Petts June 2019
Good central location both for sightseeing and short walk to pubs and shops.
Mrs Freckelton June 2019
An absolutely beautiful cottage. From the moment you walk up the steps, to opening the door to the cottage we knew we were going to love it....and that we did. It is exactly how the photos describe it....and more! Exceptionally clean, bright and welcoming. We loved the little touches like the delicious homemade cupcakes on arrival!!! It is in walking distance to many of the amazing walks at Cape Cornwall which we loved. An highly recommend this cottage....you certainly wouldn't be disappointed??
Miss James March 2019
Beautiful place, perfect location for exploring and Saint Just is a lovely quiet town with just the right amount of amenities, short walk and you’re down at the beach with amazing scenery, loved the decor and little touches of Tegen and was incredibly clean and well presented - couldn’t fault it and to top it off we got engaged whilst there - amazing weekend :) cant wait to go back already!

Lovely clean and bright. Well equipped and excellent location. Quality service. Well recommended!
Ms Gray March 2018
Stunning property whilst also homely and the surrounding area is lovely x
Mr Smith October 2017
This is the place for you to chill out and not worry about anything except how you will spend the day. A good central location in a small town which you can leave in a matter of seconds to explore the area: local people are friendly and shops open late for food etc. The flat is lovely, bright and well thought out.
Mr Hickford September 2017
Tegen is a lovely stay, centrally situated in St Just. Good heating and shower. We were able to see all the sights within easy driving and the pubs, and Co-Op very handy. Great cafes within walking distance and especially must mention the Dog and Rabbit café just across the street.
Miss Root August 2017
Overal lovely stay, had a fantastic time. Would recommend to friends and family. Would love to stay again.
Mrs Dier July 2017
Superb apartment , superbly furnished and superbly situated in St Just! Loved our weeks stay there!
Mrs Schröder July 2017
There's nothing more you can ask for.
Mr Madden June 2017
We loved our stay in tegen. St just has all you need pubs /restaurants shops, the coastal path is around a twenty minute walk away with fantastic views & walks . We left the car outside the apartment all week & used the bus service to explore the area , probably no more expensive as your not paying for car parks !! We visited the minack open air theatre , and took a day trip to the Isles of Scilly , a memorable week .
Mrs Lee June 2017
A wonderful property in a very interesting part of Cornwell - we may well return.
Mrs Heath May 2017
A lovely, cosy apartment decorated to a very high standard. St Just is a great base - everything you need is right on the doorstep. The Kurt Jackson Gallery is a must and it is only just down the road. There are many places to visit. A trip to St Ives via Leland Saltings railway station is a highlight - park the car and then catch the trian. The view from the train is amazing as it travels right next to the coastline. Another highlight is a visit to the Minack Theatre - a beautiful setting with dramatic scenery. We had a lovely week and we were very lucky with the weather. Hope to return at some point in the future.
Ms Filbey April 2017
We really enjoyed our three night stay in this cosy flat nestled in the heart of St Just. The bed was extremely comfortable, the living area relaxing, and the kitchen area well equipped, though the bathroom was a bit of a squeeze.
Most importantly, St Just is a brilliant base for exploring the wonderful sights of the surrounding areas. Nestled down a small street, the property is quiet and we'd very much recommend visiting the cafe directly opposite for their stunning breakfasts and friendly service before heading out to explore.
Mr Coupe March 2017
We enjoyed the cottage. It is very comfortable and warm.
Mrs Eastaff-Hollinshead March 2017
We booked our property after a cancelled flight to our original destination. Phoned office and we booked and were in withing 60 minutes. Amazing cottage and facilities. Will be visiting again.
Mrs Clark August 2016
We were so happy with our stay at Tegen! The property was beautiful and had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. We enjoyed morning coffee on the terrace and tea in the afternoon with the french doors open. You can hear the church bells ringing nearby which is lovely. The cottage is located in a very quiet, peaceful area. St Just is the perfect little town to stay in as a base to explore the surrounding areas with plenty of great places to eat & drink less than a 5 minute walk from the property.
Mrs Lee June 2016
Lovely property. Exceeded our expectations. Great location as we love this area. Nice local shops and eating places.
Mr Evans April 2016
Tegen is a beautiful property, it has tasteful modern decor however still has the Cornish charm that we were looking for. It is an ideal base to explore this end of Cornwall and St Just has everything you will need (butchers,bakery,pubs and fish and chips). We enjoyed our time here very much and will definitely return.
Mrs Holder January 2016
Perfect spot for a couple who want to enjoy, good food and drink, lovely views in fresh modern accommodation situated in a hub near Landsend.
Miss Farrell September 2015
An extremely comfortable, light and bright apartment that has all the modern appliances one would expect. It is an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside - a great apartment to relax in after a day walking the coastal paths.
Mr Holmes August 2015
A beautiful, well furnished and well equipped cottage in the middle of a beautiful little village with the best amenities anyone could ask for. Everything you need is walking distance. I cannot fault this place at all, we will be coming back!
Miss Klaus August 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tegen Cottage which is just as light and airy as the pictures suggest. The apartment was spotless and comfortable and a wonderful oasis to return to after busy Sightseeing days. We can highly recommend this flat if you seek a quiet and remote surrounding.
Ms Newton June 2015
We found the cottage a home from home - exceptionally welcoming, comfortable, generously proportioned for two people, and ideally situated for exploring.
Miss Eltoft March 2015
Excellent property. 10 out of 10. Would recommend. Lovely decor. Really homely, the facilities were brilliant, really clean and owner put milk in the fridge and a cake each out which was a nice touch.
Miss Demidas November 2014
Tegen is absolutely wonderful. The hospitality from the owners and local people ws a pleasant surprise. It is the perfect place for a romantic weekend way or just a quiet weekend away. Its closer than i expected to amazing places like lands end and St Michaels Mount. The cottage is clean and warm for those fall and winter nights and definitely has a cozy feel to it. I recommend Tegen to anyone looking for a cornish getaway.
Mr Dean October 2014
Lovely place to stay for a week, would highly recommend it and there is plenty to do in the surrounding area, even on the rainy days. It is around an hours drive from well known locations for example, Newquay, Lands end and the Eden Project all about an hour away so can easily make a day out for each place.
Mrs Sutton September 2014
Lovely atmosphere at Tegen. Comfortable and lovely to come back to after a day outside.
Ms Merrifield August 2014
a perfect couples retreat - home from home
Mr Humphrey July 2014
This was our second stay at Tegan and it is just perfect for us. St Just is offering more and more for discerning tourists and its location makes it ideal for trips to Sennen, Porthcurno and Marazion - our favourite beaches. A quick word of praise here for Ben's Cornish kitchen, where we enjoyed another fabulous meal of locally caught fish. We'll be back next year!
Ms Goldfuss June 2014
this is a very nice place close to everthing you need and to a lot of interesting places and we would like to come again.
Mrs Bottomley April 2014
Tegen was actually larger than I had anticipated, and the living area was wonderful, and flooded with natural light. I was very impressed by the quality of all fixtures/fittings etc and the thought that had gone into creating such a lovely and tasteful space. I was very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The owners where very kind and helpful on occasions when I contacted them. I will definitely stay again!
Mrs Sharman October 2013
Mr Speed September 2013
There is not much to say but that it was perfect for us and we liked being in the middle of a village, within easy reach of shops and restaurants. If the weather would have been nicer our week's stay would have been even better. And if future guests want internet connection then they might have the same problems we had.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Sept 2013 - Thanks so much for your review of Tegen - it sounds as though you had a lovely stay. Although we don't advertise any internet connection at the apartment, and you couldn't log on to the nearby BT hotspot you found, some of the pubs in the town do offer wireless broadband for customers, so you can always pop in for a bite to eat whilst checking your emails. Tanya, Customer Support
* UPDATE JAN 2015 * The apartment now has WiFi access for the benefit of guests.
Mrs Temperley August 2013
Don't be put off by the St Just location - this is a gem of an appartment that is really central to the old part of the town and is a great base to explore the area.
Mrs Richards August 2013
I would recommend this property to any couple. On arrival the table was set for tea for two and the owners had left milk and two delicious lemon drizzle cakes in the fridge...a lovely touch. The property was immaculately clean and I loved the decor and styling. When I spoke to the owners on the phone to ask if we could stay an extra night( which we did) they were very friendly and helpful. The village of St Just had everything we needed and was perfectly positioned to explore this beautiful part of Cornwall. We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in this gorgeous apartment.
Mr Ambler May 2013
We felt very comfortable in this excellent spacious apartment , and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Perfectly positioned for a relaxing holiday.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
