Make a holiday cottage or holiday rental home in Sennen, Cornwall your home away from home

Sennen is situated on the southwest tip of Cornwall close to Whitesand Bay. It has its own lifeboat station and lighthouse and is one mile northeast of Lands End. The cliffs at Pedn-men-du headland, a popular climbing location, shelter the cove at Sennen, which is popular with families and surfers in equal measure. At low tide the beach becomes one with Gwynver beach and the coastal path, availiable to walk at both high and low tide, offers some spectacular coastal views.

Places to holiday in Sennen

Places like the Cot Valley, Porthgwarra, Kenidjack are famous for birdwatching. Renting self-catering accommodation or a cottage in Sennen is one of the best ways to watch birds without being restricted to the timescales demanded by guesthouses and hotels. St Just (Lands End) Airfield, which lies between Sennen and St Just, is a birdwatchers delight and is known for the rare waders such as the Buff-breasted Sandpiper and Dotteral which call the area home. It is best to view the field from the road that runs to Nanquido or the track to Brea Vean where there is a small pull in, as access to the airfield in prohibited.

There are many holiday cottages close to Sennen Cove harbour where a small fleet of pleasure and commercial fishing boats operate. The harbour is popular with diving groups especially at times when easterly winds make diving at Mount's Bay difficult. There are several stories (myths) about the cove, such as reports of mermaid, the Sennen Whooper and the Irish Lady. Penrose in the Penberth Valley was home of the seventeenth century smuggler and the farmhouse at Brea is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The present church dates back to the thirteenth century but there has been a religious building on the land since the sixth century.

Many of the names of cottages in Sennen relate to the nature of the area with names like Mariners and Wayfarers, Longships Watch, Captains View and even the gallery housing sculpture, photography, pottery and paintings is called the Round House and Capstan Gallery.

It was clean and quiet and ideal for walking the dogs at Porthcurno beach every day. I'd highly recommend popping into the telegraph museum while you're there too. It was fantastic. The only major downsides for me was that there is no oven, just a convector microwave. Also the shower runs off the immersion heater so be careful. We had a fantastic week though and Jonathan couldn't have been lovelier.

Just two of us and the dog. The garden is enclosed and has plenty of space, with a picnic table to sit at for a drink in the evening. We arrived to a lovely cream tea, which is a very nice touch. We had no problem at all with parking a large vehicle in front, nor with access to the property. The Spar is very handy, and the footpath to Sennen and Lands End is heavenly if you have a dog. Eat at the Cafe and spoil yourself (the tarmac path gets steep at the bottom). All tourist sites are quick to get to, St Ives is barely a 15 minute drive. The house has plenty of room, and we didn't use the loft room at all, and there is a baby gate you can place at the bottom of the stairs. There is plenty of storage and hangers in every room. The beds and pillows are very comfy. The storage heaters can be turned up with a coin, and provided us with plenty of warmth in the 14 - 18 degrees we had when we were there. The kitchen had more than enough items, including kitchen towel, washing up liquid, foil, oil, sugar and essentials for cooking. Everything was lovely and clean. Simple it may be, but my favourite thing was to have use of a dishwasher and tumble dryer on holiday. Heaven! We don't have those at home. Only one thing did we think could be improved; the water pressure in the en-suite was weak. Towels and soap are provided. We very much enjoyed reading from the ample library and doing a jigsaw on the lovely, long table in the lounge. We want one now! Thank you. We will definitely return, perhaps with some family or friends!
