The Details

  • Location

    Where Is It?

    Sennen Cove is at the far west of Cornwall, with a magical 'edge of the world' feel. This little village is a hotchpotch of sturdy granite cottages with an ancient, classically Cornish air although on a sunny day, the pale, almost white sand and the turquoise water gives the beach a distinctly Mediterranean flavour.

    This gorgeous spot has been voted as one of Britain's best beaches by Conde Nast Traveller. If you're looking for a corner of Cornwall far from supermarkets, busy dual carriageways and the hectic pace of modern life, then Sennen Cove is where you'll find it. Here, it's all about relaxing with simple pleasures, pub lunches and a treat from the ice cream shop, cliff path walks along this most rugged of coastline and catching some of the endless waves on a surf or body board. Sennen Cove has lifeguard cover throughout the summer season.

    St Ives is a short drive away, with the famous Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, great shopping and lively cafe and restaurant culture.

Guest Reviews

"A lovely, cosy cottage, with ample room for 4 adults. We stayed over Christmas and the wood-burning stove and warm bedding made it very toasty. Great views from all windows and garden and only minutes walk to the sea."
H Ryan-Atkin, December 2023
"What a pretty cottage with amazing views and a cosy feel. We have had an amazing stay, visitng St Ives, Mousehole and our favourite childhood beach, Portheras. Breaking the days up with walks around the headlands and enjoying pub lunches. Although it was mid December, some of the family had a dip in the sea. We have had such a lovely time. Thank you so much for providing such a homely place to stay. Thank you Cove Cottage!"

"We enjoyed our stay in characterful Cove Cottage - old stone walls, log fire, great views. "
R Chapman, December 2020
"A return visit for us to Sennen and Cove cottage. The accommodation is in a perfect location with close access to the beach and great walks right from the front door. Very comfortable with everything you need available. Little extras like fresh flowers, biscuits and tea on arrival were very welcome. Accommodation was absolutely spotless and clearly particular care was given during these strange times of Covid-19. We will be back again!"
