St Keverne

St Keverne has a beautiful church, whitewashed cottages, two public houses, restaurants and shops clustered around the village square, which comes alive throughout the summer months with band concerts and the annual Ox Roast. A dramatic statue and church wall plaque commemorates the 500th anniversary of the 1497 Cornish rebellion which started here in St. Keverne led by the local blacksmith.

In the church there is a shipwreck window as a stark memorial to the 106 lives lost when the liner "Mohegan" was wrecked in 1898 just of the coast at Porthoustock where the jagged teeth of the Manacles rocks lie beneath the surface of the water.

The village itself was once the haunt of smugglers. In 1762, five men from here once brought home 218 barrels of brandy!!

A short walk out of the village brings you to Tregellast Barton, where you can follow lakeside and woodland nature trails and sample superb icecreams at Roskilly’s farm.
