The West Country region

The traditional and pretty old stone village of St Ewe, dating back to the Norman times, is set in a rural setting, with the old Church and the Crown Inn at its centre. The Crown Inn is a fan old character amily pub and does bar meals and also has a restaurant- also the pub has outdoor eating/seating at the rear which allows a dog. The pub has an open fire in the cooler months and a resident parrot. The impressive old Church (an ancient church with a 14th cent Spire, a Norman Font, & a 15th cent rood screen) and village is named after a saint called St Ewe, although there is little record of who the saint was. There is the base of a Celtic Cross in the Church grounds. St Austell is about 6 miles and the popular fishing village of Mevagissey about 3 miles. The Eden Project is about 8 miles. Lovely sandy beaches at Pentewan are 3 miles.
