St Germans is a rural parish in East Cornwall, extending north west along the valley of the river Tiddy from the village of St Germans. The village takes its name from the St Germans Priory, which was possibly founded by St Germanus in 430 AD shortly after the Roman withdrawal. The 12th century priory church replaced an earlier Anglo-Saxon building and was used as the cathedral of Cornwall until Truro Cathedral was built in the 19th century.

Adjacent to the church is Port Eliot, the ancestral seat of the Eliot family and the Earls of St Germans.

The railway station in the village is on the main line from Penzance to Plymouth. There are direct trains to London. The A38 trunk road passes north of the village, connecting to the motorway network at Exeter.

In the past St Germans was a busy fishing village and port and the quay is now home to the Quay Sailing Club.

Bethany is a small hamlet about 2 miles from St Germans. Originally a farming community and surrounded by farmland, each house has its own story to tell.
