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.

Plenty of books, games, and things to do provided. Great location right on the beach, although it is very steep down right in front of cottage to the waters edge. Right on the Coast Path for walking, great cafes and places to eat if you don't fancy cooking.
