BEAUTIFUL LUXURY COTTAGE SHORT WALK TO BEAUTIFUL GWENVER BEACH AND CLIFFS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Sennen - Luxury Cottages Gwenver Beach

Luxurious and spacious cottage sleeps 5.

New Forge is a fabulous modern and luxurious cottage that's loved by couples for romantic breaks as well as families getting away from it all. There are loads more pictures and film see on our website thecornishway.co.uk.

The space is most generous with a 35 foot long living space and big bedrooms, even a studio in the garden if anyone needs to work (ask me about it).

We completed the cottage in 2011 to a very high standard and with good appliances - many guests who keep coming back like to consider it their luxury holiday home.

But if you fancy something more adventurous there is a good surf school down the road, sea fishing trips or diving, or bring your bike and tackle some of the hills that make West Cornwall such a beautiful place.

The cottage has everything you're likely to need, whether you want to cook at home, barbecue, or maybe sample some of the great restaurants of St Ives, Penzance or The Beach in Sennen Cove.

If you're looking for a quiet break, or you want to try cycling in Cornwall, surfing, twitchers, or just lovers of the wonderful scenery.

We have some of Britain's best beaches within a short drive - some just a walk away. You can swim, surf or fish off Gwenver (Gwynver), and that's just down the lane. My favourite is Porthcurno and its neighbour Penvounder, probably 5 miles from here.

We're a long way from London, but our culture is alive and thriving. The Minack Theatre is a few miles away. The modern gardens of Tremenheere are attracting more and more people wanting to experience the James Turrell spaces there, even though it's not officially open yet. The Kneehigh, Miracle and other theatre companies put on stunning out door events,and our festivals including Golowan, Lafroda and Montol demonstrate that life on the edge is a fun experience.

West Cornwall is a magical place, steeped in mystery from its ancient past, evidence of which is seen in the fogous, burial tombs and remains of villages such as Chysauster and Carn Euny.

Our many tin and copper mines, ancient and modern helped us gain UNESCO World Heritage status, and you can go underground at nearby Geevor, or see the oldest working Cornish Beam Engine at Levant.

The Cape Cornwall Golf Club is a short drive and is a wild cliff top course.

Kelvin grew up nearby and was determined that we would have our base here in Cornwall. It started with the upstairs of the granary which we later converted to create Myn Tea.

Kelvin Collins purchased this cottage in 1999

We visited many places before spending a whole afternoon with the owners of the granary that was later to become Myn Tea. When what is now New Forge came on the market we utterly stretched ourselves to buy it.

Although it was extremely basic back then, we knew immediately that this is where we wanted to live. Work takes Amanda around the country, but Tregiffian has always been home. Just being here lightens the load of everyday life and helps you see things with a new perspective.

It says a lot that the people we bought from moved away for ten years, but have now moved back here and live just across the courtyard.

We are right at the edge of Britain and it can be utterly calm, yet at other times wild in the extreme. The very contrasts in the weather, no matter what it throws at you, are truly good for the soul and leave you feeling more alive.

Whether you stay at New Forge or Myn Tea next door or The Old Dairy across the courtyard, you'll have wonderfully comfortable accommodation, far reaching views, good gardens and you could spend a relaxing holiday here without leaving the property. But when you venture out you have the best of Cornwall with its cliffs and beaches right on your doorstep.

The best holiday home we've ever had!

The best holiday home we've ever had!
  • 5 out of 5
The best way I can sum up this property is by stating that as soon as I got home I started researching how I could end living in such a place.

When we made the booking, the pictures had a "too good to be true" feel to them, as often they do. As soon as we walked in, it became immediately obvious that it really was that good.

This place is amazing, beautiful - clean yet packed with interesting things. It adjoins another property and is set among a small selection of other holiday homes, but it might as well be all alone in the middle of a field once you walk out into the garden. You're pretty much alone with the cows in the field opposite!

Everything is of a high standard - the kitchen contains everything you need to cook up a feast, the bathroom shower was huge and so was the bath. The garden is surprisingly large too, which was perfect for our two dogs.

In short I can't think of anything but good things to say - we were considering when we could return before we'd even left. Now, how do I go about living here!

Owner's Response: Hey that's a great review, thank you!

We built New Forge to live in eventually and we put everything into it to create the best possible home for our lovely guests. We're both delighted to read your notes.

Thank you and I hope we can welcome you back soon.

Living in the far west is pretty good if you can work. Let me know if I can help with ideas.

Best wishes. Kelvin and Amanda.

Coasteering, Kayaks and Cliffs

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful week, beautiful accommodation. This was our second visit to the Collins' abode and we're very much looking forward to another visit to enjoy the stunning scenery and wild costal walks. Newforge is a homely haven to return to after a exhilarating day out with everything we could possibly need to relax. Although, it did prove a challenge to leave the extremely comfortable bed and view across the fields in the morning! Thank you for a great week.

In love with new forge MMX. A genuine haven!

  • 5 out of 5
This is our favourite retreat. Away from it all at the end of our land this is a great escape. The cottage is contemporary and quirky with beautiful furnishings, lighting and all you could want. The area is so beautiful with great coastal walks and beaches. The owners have made this a home from home and make you feel so welcome. Will be booking our next trip again soon.

Fab luxury cottage close to beach

  • 5 out of 5
We were really impressed by New Forge and our whole stay in Tregiffian. The cottage is kitted out to a really high standard with some beautiful furniture and extremely comfortable and roomy. The enclosed garden was great for Bella, my Bernese Mountain Dog! Everything was clean and tidy with everything we needed to hand.

We would highly recommend to anyone and have already been looking at a booking there for next year!

I hope we'll meet in the future and Bella can give our Polly a clip around the ear!

Give Myn Tea a try one day, hopefully you'll love that too.

A stunning property in a wonderful position

  • 5 out of 5
New Forge is a stunning property, beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean and well maintained. There are some wonderful design aspects in the house all of which have been done with great care and thought. We had a wonderful welcome pack, but I will not say what it consists of as it would spoil the surprise - but everything was appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed. The garden area has also been well planned, tidy with a very pleasant patio area.

The walk to Gwyenver beach took us 15mins with children. The route down to the beach is steep with uneven paths and steps - but worth the effort. The beach is stunning and when we went in August had life guards which was a bonus. The walk back up from the beach is great for the calf muscles! Sennen Cove is the next beach and on Kelvins recommendation we had pre booked surfing lessons at Sennen Surf School which was brilliant, very well organised with friendly and gorgeous instructors! It was very good advice to pre book well in advance as they were fully booked.

The owner of this property provided excellent customer service. On booking we received via email a wonderful brochure which was beautifully laid out, extremely informative with great contacts and eating out suggestions. Any communication via email sent to Kelvin was responded to quickly with a very friendly manner.

I would certainly recommend this property to friends and family. We are desperate to return to this wonderful place.

Superb location in Cornwall

  • 5 out of 5
We searched for a nice house for 4 persons to explore south-west Cornwall within a week, and to enjoy its nature, art and culture (a.o. Barbara Hepworth and the Tate, St. Ives). New Forge turned out to be a superb location to this end. Its is a magnificently renovated farmhouse, tastfully decorated, well-equipped and maintained, located at walking distance to the ocean and Land's End and at an easy drive to all the highlights of the region, although the left side driving on the Cornish roads caused some sweat to the dutch driver and his family members. The owner is the perfect host for your stay at New Forge. His detailed preparation by email gives you all the details you need to prepare your visit well in andvance. Don't bring books or music: his fine collection was awaiting us with an excellent wine welcome. We recommend this property warmly to anyone interested in visiting this region

These gorgeous cottages are just a short walk from the beautiful surfing beach of Gwenver, which is a quieter beach around the corner from popular Sennen Cove. The busy towns of St Ives and Penzance are both a short drive, and some of the best beaches in the country are nearby.

If you're into walking, cycling, surfing, you're a twitcher, art lovers or just looking for a great self catering holiday should consider The Cornish Way for your next break in West Cornwall.

It's designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and makes an amazing location for family holidays or romantic breaks all year round.

The mining areas of Cornwall are UNESCO World Heritage sites and offer an insight into the life of our ancestors.

This countryside inspired such authors as Daphne Dumorier, Rosemund Pilcher and more recently Patrick Gale. The art colonies nearby are famouse from such great as Barbara Helpworth, Stanhope Forbes and even Mark Rothcoe.

The modern cottage was completed to a high standard in 2011 and offers every comfort, whereas The Old Dairy has all the charm of a traditional Cornish cottage.

We have properties sleeping two to eight, or up to 17 if you take three! Each offers everyone enough space to have their own quiet time.

If you plan your shopping well - or have it delivered, you might not even use your car for the duration of your stay.
