About the property

Cottage in Sennen, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Yet Within Walking Distance Of Lifeguarded Sandy Beaches, Harbour, Coastal Path And Shops

If you want to explore one of Cornwall's most beautiful areas, go barefoot on golden sand, swim, surf or paddle in clean blue water, then this beach house style cottage is ideal. With local art galleries including the Tate Gallery in St Ives and the Minack open air theatre with the ocean as a backdrop just a few minutes drive away there is something for everyone. Try beautiful coastal walks by day and meander through sand dunes to enjoy a snack or meal at the local unspoilt cove at the great restaurant set by the beach.

Lovely comfortable place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation is lovely. Very stylishly decorated. Beds are big and comfortable, and the bedding is really nice with 100% cotton sheets. And the place was very clean. Great kitchen, with the usual array of kitchen implements plus blunt cooking knives (would advise bringing your own). The cottage is about 5 min drive from the beach or a 20 min walk.

All in all, excellent place to stay if you want a bit of comfort near Sennen beach.

Cornwall in style.

  • 5 of 5

5 perfect nights. Cottage is stunning, great location and friendly, helpful owner. Property is well presented, clean, bright and a little haven after a busy day. Sennen is beautiful, certainly somewhere to return to. I'd have no hesitation returning to this cottage and no hesitation recommending to anyone planning on staying in Sennen. Thank you Samantha.

The property was just as described, clean and tidy with all the facilities you require for a holiday

  • 4 of 5

The information and instructions from Samantha were spot on, all went well on arrival and departure. The cottage is well positioned for the sennen cove and lands end, we visited Penzance, newlyn, st Michaels mount st. Ives, portcurrno is a must lovely cove and beach the cable museum and the miniac theatre all in one place. There must be lots of lovely coves still to explore we just ran out of time. Bens restaurant in sennen cove is well worth a visit as is the fish and chips next to cost cutters. We didn't pick the best week for weather, strong wind most days, great for wind surfing. Maybe we will have moe luck next trip

we were disappointed

  • 2 of 5

I believed that the cottage would be more spacious with a nice outdoor space. 5 of us stayed the property felt small and average very expensive for what it was if I had paid less I would have been less disappointed would love to return but not to this cottage due to cost.

Lovely cottage near beach.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed (2 adults, 2 children) at the cottage during half-term and found the cottage and location perfect.

We were near Sennen Cove and around a 10 minute drive from the lovely Porthcurno beach and Minack Theatre.

The property was clean, and had all the amenities expected from a self-catering cottage. Our own car park space was also provided and the area was very peaceful.

We used this location as a base and were happy to travel nearby to Hayle, Penzance, Marazion and St Ives (which was a little further at around 35 minutes).

We also visited Newquay which was around an hour away.

We would definitely return.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

A great cottage, very clean and bright with a cosy atmosphere. Well stocked utensils for self catering with large family oven. Good location in a quiet area on outskirts of Sennen Cove. Beach about 10 mins walk away down hill but takes longer to walk back as steep hill! Big car park by beach if you prefer to drive. Lovely sandy beach with great views. Great area for walking. Couple of places to eat and drink with great sea views.

Would definitely recommend.

Sennen beach has a consistent, swell-sucking beachbreak. Punchy peaks with barrels when offshore on a medium swell and tide.

'The Beach' restaurant is located at Sennen Cove car park with amazing sea views.


Its a pleasant downhill walk to Sennen Cove and the beach via footpath just under a mile. Driving takes a couple of minutes. The beach at Porthcurno and those of Porthchapel and green bay are a ten minute drive away.
