About Wendy Stokes

We have been visiting Sennen Cove since the mid 90's, so when this property came up for sale we jumped at the chance. We bought Whitesands Penthouse in 2008 from close friends, who lived there full time. I think this is why from the moment you walk in the front door it feels like a home. The views from all the windows are amazing - when you wake up the morning sun floods the bedroom and you can lie in bed and watch the waves roll in. During the day you can sit on the sofa and watch life unfold in the cove below, and the fisherman go about their daily business. Finally when the sun sets you can watch in wonder from the balcony or outside on the deck. There is always something to look at and we are delighted to share this with our visitors.

Why Wendy Stokes chose Cornwall

We love Sennen because of the fantastic walks both coastal and inland, the beautiful beaches and crystal clear seas, the warm welcome, the surfing, the variety of wildlife and the fresh clean air.

What makes this apartment unique

We love being right on the coastal path - it's great for us and our dog. And we love our garden with the soft lawns and fantastic views of the beach, (which we share with the other flats in the building) but NO ONE else ever uses it so it feels like it's all ours!

Location

Coast/Beach:

Three minutes walk to the small harbour beach, and five minutes walk to the main Whitesands beach

Fab stay

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here for several years and is a perfect home-from-home for the whole family. Love the fact that there are sea views from virtually every window; apartment is always clean and beds are super-comfy. Really well-equipped too (hurrah for Nespresso machine!) and body-boards, buckets & spades if you need them. Sennen is a lovely spot but there's something about being perched above it all, looking down, that means you're never bored as there's always something to look at. It is a climb up from the beach, but it does get you fit and the views are definitely worth it.

Fantastic apartment with great views

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the apartment many times, in all seasons - bringing various family & friends. The location and views are stunning, great walks, beaches, surf, pubs and restaurants nearby. The apartment is well equipped and very comfortable - the owners look after it and update it regularly. A real home from home - highly recommended!

Spacious apartment with great views.

  • 4 of 5

A week away with our grown up children and their partners. Many family holidays at Sennen in the past.They insisted on coming back to Sennen Cove and to have somewhere with views. A long way from Cumbria but yet again Sennen Cove was well worth the drive. Visited all the usual places with family memories and even managed two days on the beach.
