St Akevarnus Church
The White Hart
St Keverne, Lizard Peninsula
The village clusters around a central square with whitewashed cottages, shops & an inn.
The village is one mile inland from the coastal path and clusters around the central square which boasts a convenience store, newsagent, Post Office, quality butcher, an excellent organic restaurant and a local pub serving a variety of good food all overlooked by the 15th century church of St. Akervnus.
On summer evenings you might catch the St. Keverne Band, or the Male Voice Choir but the square really comes alive at the annual festivals of the Ox Roast, Carnival and Rodeo. A short walk out of the village brings you to Tregellast Barton, where you can follow lakeside and woodland nature trails.
Two Cornish rebellions have their roots in St. Keverne. In the church wall facing the square, there's a memorial stone to the village blacksmith Michael Joseph, co-leader of the first uprising in 1497.
