VERYAN

Veryan is a historic and picturesque village located on the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall The village is always a popular stop off for holiday makers and visitors to the county, who come to see the five "unique" thatched Round Houses the mark the entrances to the village.

Veryan village has a particular charm, with pride taken in the village by the local inhabitants. It boasts a Sports Pavilion with provision for tennis, cricket, bowls and a children's playground. The Indoor Bowling Green is a prime example of community co-operation and is a must for the visitor. The New Inn, a traditional 16th Century Cornish Inn, provides both a warm welcome and quality fine food and drink.

Veryan Church - St Symphorian Church, VeryanThe village Church is the 13th century church of St Symphorian. The church was mentioned in the Doomsday Book, but the current building, is more recent, dating from the 13th and 14th century.

The church has some "Norman" features, such as the carved faces on the west porch, but these are not original, being "added" to the fabric of the building in the 1830s, by a local vicar - who aquired material from the nearby, ruined chapel of St Nun in Grampound. The church is unusual as the tower is located on the South side - instead of the more usual location on the western side.

Veryan is located close to a number of high quality beaches, including the beaches of East & West Portholland Beaches, Carne Beach, Pendower Beach and of course St Mawes. It is a great location for a holiday in Cornwall, with easy acces to Falmouth (via the Ferry), Mevagissey and Truro.

Veryan Roundhouses

Veryan - Round HousesThe Roundhouses mark the entrances to Veryan. There are five Roundhouses in total, originally built by the Trist Family in the early 19th Century - 'Parson Trist' (The local landowner) sited the houses at the entrances to the village in c.1817 - these unique, private thatched circular cottages have become a unique feature of Veryan. It was thought that the round shape would guard the village from evil as there were no corners in which the devil could hide!

Gala week in mid-July is a bonanza of local colour culminating in a parade through the village.
