The North Inn was a favourite haunt of tin miners until the local mine closed in 1990.
It was voted CAMRA (Campaign For Real Ale) Cornwall Pub of the Year for 2003, which recognises not only the standard of the beers but also the atmosphere, the mix of clientele, the availability of food and even the condition of the toilets.
We look forward to welcoming you, John Coak.
Bed & Breakfast
For the B and B accommodation large new bedrooms have been built in 2004, one of which has been specifically designed to accommodate disabled guests. These are all double rooms but with the advantage of enough space for a single bed to be added to accommodate guests who require twin beds or families. They have fully tiled bathrooms with bath and shower, television, tea and coffee and balconies on the seaward side. Their popularity has been proved time and time again by the number of guests who book for one night and then want to stay on.
We have 3 bedrooms with a double bed and a single bed in each and one bedroom (with the disabled bathroom facilities) with a double bed.
There is a hair dryer and a radio in each bedroom.
The North Inn - Halfway Between Land's End & St Ives
The North Inn Pub with B&B is situated on the B3306 coastal road halfway between Land's End and St Ives in the heart of the village opposite the school and close to the post office, local shop and church. As the crow flies, it is less than a mile from the sea and, from the rear and the bedrooms, there is a fine view over the Atlantic with spectacular sunsets during the summer months. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and there are large tracts of moorland and buildings which are managed by the National Trust.
For many, Pendeen and the surrounding area of West Penwith represent the unspoilt West Cornwall as depicted in so many television series such as Poldark and the Rosamund Pilcher stories. This is a rugged country of dramatic cliffs and quiet coves, of windswept moorland, of gorse and heather. This is a land of stone-age monuments, iron-age forts and centuries of tin mining history.
Pendeen - An Excellent Base For Exploring The Area
However, although giving the impression of remoteness, more and more visitors are discovering that Pendeen is an excellent base for exploring the area. Not only the moors and cliffs but also the towns of St Just, Penzance and St Ives (with the Tate Gallery), Land's End, St Michael's Mount and the fishing villages of Newlyn and Mousehole are all within 10 miles, as well as golf courses, riding stables and fishing and, at the end of the day, there is comfortable, spacious and quiet accommodation to be enjoyed at the North Inn. Even the Eden Project at St Austell, the Maritime Museum at Falmouth, Flambards Amusement Park at Helston, the city of Truro and many other visitor attractions are all relatively close at hand.
Geevor Tin Mine Museum
Right on the doorstep is Geevor Tin Mine which was one of the last working tin mines in Cornwall. This is now a museum which has the most complete range of buildings for a mine of this type in Europe where the whole history of mining from the earliest days can be experienced, including an underground tour. Funding is currently being sought to vastly expand the area of underground workings to provide an even more fascinating insight into how mining developed right up to the 20th century.
Simple, Inexpensive Camping Site
At the rear of the pub there is a camp site for tents and small touring vans which costs £4 per person per night including use of the showers which, with the toilets, are situated in the pub itself. There are no hook-up facilities or other "improvements" as this is only intended to be a simple, inexpensive site. Bookings for pitches cannot be made.
A small general shop, which also sells newspapers, is located at the rear of the pub.
