Little Churchway

Little Churchway and the local area

  • The annexe overlooks the Church and village. Step outside and there are stunning coastal views.


  • The area is threaded with footpaths which take the walker inland to country areas or along the coastal paths to local towns and villages such as Marazion, Penzance and Helston. OS map Explorer 102 covers much of the area


  • The old footpath, which took worshippers from Prussia Cove to Perranuthnoe Church runs alongside the property, allowing visitors direct access to the footpath system.


  • With direct access to the footpath and only 400 yards to the beach, 50 yards to the bus stop, local pub and restaurant, there is little need for visitors to use a car. A village craft centre offers some essential provisions and services.


  • Penzance, about four miles by road, is the nearest main town and where there is a train and bus station for visitors who don’t want the hassle of driving.
  • Little Churchway is located near the centre of the coastal village of Perranuthnoe in West Cornwall


  • It started life as a coal shed in Victorian times and stored fuel for the fires in Churchway House. It is now a bright, modern three-roomed annexe to the main house.


  • The land on which Churchway House was built was bought for 20 in 1888 when a mine captain blew up a local mine building and used the stone and wood to construct the property. The current owner is the 4th generation to live in the house.
  • Mining and smuggling played a big part in the history of the area. Now it is an important farming region producing milk from grassfed cows, along with early flowers and vegetables. Winter cauliflower, early potatoes and daffodils are symbolic of West Cornwall.
