About Monica

Hello my name is Monica.

I have four children and live in Exeter. Our family still live in the village of Sennen , and we have been enjoying our holidays here for over 25 years and love being by the sea at Badgers Cottage.

Badgers Cottage sits in a row of four beautifully appointed granite cottages, with views of the sea. We bought Badgers Cottage in the summer of 1997.

It is a very special place.

Badgers cottage was renovated in 2010, and Badgers Loft, a new loft conversion was completed in 2014 and we now have many guests return year after year to stay.

2017/8 we have redecorated and added lots of lovely furniture and pictures . A new shower room, stone kitchen floor, cooker and retro fridge !

Monica purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Monica chose Sennen

Our cottage is Perfect for getting away from it all and being by the sea!

We have loved our unique special place for over 20 years and everyone that comes to stay feels exhilirated by its proximity to the amazing Atlantic ocean.

Loads to do and see nearby....

Coastal walks; Lands End is a 30 minute walk along the South West Coast Path

St Ives/St Just/Penzance are all a short drive away or take the open top bus from the bus stop in the cove.

The famous Minack Theatre is 5 miles away with a wonderful season of theatre, music and storytelling.

Whitesands beach...Perfect powder white sand beach with lifeguards during the summer months, and Sennen Surf Centre and surf shop on your doorstep for all surf lessons and equipment hire.

Ben Tunnicliffe's restaurant is situated on the beach with cafes and a local shops in the village for all the bits you forgot to bring!

Badgers cottage has a separate loft with its own access and outside space, which can be rented separately if you are a larger family looking for extra room.

What makes this cottage unique

Badgers Cottage has four bedrooms, 2 double rooms and 1 twin bedroom with bunk beds and 1 twin bedroom with single wrought iron beds. The open plan living room is lovely and spacious ,includes a large dining table, sofas with wood burner and french door give access to the rear garden. Painted wooden floors and shutters are part of the seaside charm of our cottage.

Back garden and access via a private lane, for all the usual surf gear.

A front garden to sit and look out at the ocean, is the perfect place to be and less than a minute walk from the famous Whitesands surf beach.

With the Old Success Inn, coastal walks and the fantastic open top bus route to St. Ives, Sennen lifeboat station and local Sennen farmers market all in walking distance, makes this the perfect place for your family holiday.

A lovely bright & fashionable beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Badgers Cottage and Loft are situated right on the sea front in Sennen Cove. Being tucked back from the road, the cottage offers peace and tranquility; but decide you'd like a late afternoon swim or surf or glass of wine, and its a mere hope and a skip from you front door. The cottage takes its style cue from the sea and there is a lovely crisp and clean nautical theme throughout. Showers and bathrooms are clean and everything works well. The kitchen is a lovely size- roomy and well stocked with pots pans and ample cooking equipment. We cooked in every night and really enjoyed doing so. The cottage has clearly had a refurbishment recently and is very well maintained, with help on hand should you need anything.

Parking is in the main car park and you can buy a voucher for a week ( if the machines are working) otherwise its a fiver a day, which is fine, but means you have to remember to renew the ticket. The front garden catches the afternoon sun and i sat out many an evening sipping a glass of wine and reading as the sun set over the horizon. The back garden is functional - great for wetsuits and drying things, but we tended to use the front or the beach.

We would definitely return again and my daughter was staying upstairs in Badgers loft at the same time, which worked perfectly.

Cracking cottage in a great position in Sennen Cove - great for family stays

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying in Badgers Cottage - excellent weather helped but also the position of the Cottage right on the sea front meant that walking to the beautiful sandy beach of Whitesands Bay takes literally minutes, the excellent Old Success Inn is even closer and our kids loved being allowed to walk along the pavement down to the Old Boathouse 'corner' shop to get the paper and maybe some sweets each day!

The cottage is well appointed and spacious enough for two families without being enormous - the two bathrooms do come in handy! It's nicely decorated, clean and there's a great front garden area for catching the last of the sun and watching the sunset.

A car parking space would make this place perfect, but it's not a big issue as there's a choice of two car parks very close by if the parking restrictions are in place (from 1st April I think) - £3.50 for day's parking in the Harbour car park.

We will be returning!

Our sunshine holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful week at Sennen.

The cottage is very well equipped,and has a glorious sea view,from the front of the house.

Parking was not an issue for us ,but maybe during the height of summer.

The enclosed back garden was brilliant for our dog.

The website pictures do not do this delightful cottage justice.
