Just five miles north of Land's End, this Youth Hostel accommodation is a great place for an activity break or to relax after exploring west Cornwall’s many attractions. The famous signpost and tourist hotspot of mainland Britain’s most south-westerly point are but five miles south, yet you wouldn’t know it. Cradled in the peaceful Cot Valley, YHA Land’s End offers a tranquil spot far from the madding crowd.
YHA Land's End is tucked away with fine views to the sea and a five minute walk to the South West Coast Path - perfect for a value family break. We're more than just a swell view of the Atlantic; beaches and the great countryside are nearby, so we're equally good for surfing breaks, birdwatching and walking holidays.
Cape Cornwall is just a 30 minute walk away if you want to admire the spectacular view from the NCI lookout station. Or head for the hills and explore the Penwith Moors - there are some amazing stone circles and Iron Age villages along the way. Whether you want to learn about the historical mining locations made famous in Poldark or just relax on a sublime beach, we're a one-stop location for paradise.

Letcha Vean, St Just-in-Penwith, Penzance, Cornwall, TR19 7NT
By car or bike: The only road access to YHA Land's End is via Kelynack on the B3306. Turn off the B3306 at Kelynack and follow the road through the farmyard and past the sign "Unsuitable for motors" - although narrow the road is tarmac and in good condition all the way to the hostel entrance. Follow this road without making any further turns until you reach the gate with "Letcha Vean", YHA and Hostelling International signs.
By foot from St Just: Use these instructions from the centre of St Just – where the main bus stop is for buses from Penzance, Land’s End and St Ives. Walk past the library away from the town centre along Market Street, turn left following Bosorne Terrace past a chapel and recreation ground, turn right down narrow lane passing cottages and old well, where the lane ends turn right down a footpath following signs for YHA. This last section is not suitable for suitcases on wheels – if in doubt call a taxi from St Just which will cost around £6.00.
By foot from the coast path: If you're heading north on the coast path from Land’s End follow signs to YHA from the south side of Porth Nanven or via Letcha Farm from Gribba Point. If heading south on the coast path follow the road upwards in the Cot Valley (the opposite direction to coast path which follows the same road down the Cot Valley) and turn right onto the small track at Rosewell Cottage. Cross the stream and then follow YHA signs.
The nearest bus station is in St Just. Catch the First Kernow 10 from Penzance, or the Community Bus 7 from Land’s End or Zennor. In the summer open top buses operate from St Ives.
