Cliffside Sennen

£824 - £2063 per week

Perched high on the clifftop above Sennen Cove, this stunning property boasts breathtaking views. The large picture windows on the seaward side of the open plan living area provide the perfect viewing spot to sit and relax whilst enjoying the vista. Alternatively, snuggle up by the cosy log burner of a winter's evening. This modern property offers comfortable and spacious accommodation for up to eight guests throughout the year.

The sandy beach at Sennen Cove is just a five minute walk down the hill (although a little more back up again), perfect for those summer days! With a mile of golden sand, this beautiful beach is ideal for families. However, it also famed for having some of the best surf in the county - you can learn to surf with the local surf club located by the beach. Sennen has everything you need for a holiday, with a selection of restaurants, a fish and chip shop, a pub and a handful of shops, you'll have all the essentials just a walk away! However, if you fancy venturing further afield, Land's End is just one mile down the road (or you can walk the coastal path) and the market town of Penzance is a twenty minute drive away. From Penzance, you'll be well-located to visit St Michael's Mount and the smaller harbour villages of Mousehole and Newlyn.

Sennen Holidays

Sennen is the most westerly parish in the UK, nestled between Cape Cornwall and Land's End. Part of the village; the mediaeval church of St. Sennen with its low granite tower, the school, and the First & Last Inn are at the top of the cliff; with some older cottages 300 feet below by the quay, along with the Old Success, a seventeenth-century inn. 

Sennen Cove is still a fishing village and home of Sennen Lifeboat. Established in 1853, The Royal National Lifeboat Institution`s Sennen Cove Station is situated just one mile northeast of Land’s End.

If you want to spot a bit of wildlife during your holiday in Sennen, basking sharks and dolphins are a common sight off the coast of Sennen. Join our friends in the water and head to Sennen Cove which is renowned for its great surf and friendly atmosphere. Or take a drive to Gwenver Beach, less than a mile from Sennen Cove and watch the sunset - a truly spectacular sight. Read more about Sennen holidays and Gwenver beach on our blog post about Sandy beaches in West Cornwall.


Sennen is a prime location for surfing in Cornwall. With swell coming in from the Atlantic, the surf is good all year round and can be better than the more crowded surfing destinations such as Newquay. With two surf schools based at Sennen you'll be in good hands when it comes to learning the ropes. Read more about Surfing in Sennen on our blog. 

Beaches & Coastal Walks

Take a walk along the coast from Land's End to the beautiful and hidden Nanjizel beach; one of Cornwall's most spectacular beaches. Porthcurno is also only a short drive away with its beautiful beaches and the breathtaking Minack Theatre, showing regular outdoor performances throughout the summer months.

South from Sennen Cove you can walk the coastal path to Land’s End. Just over a mile as the chough flies, but all along the south-west coastal path you must allow for the uphill stretches and twisty bits of headland which make the walks longer. 

Whitesand Bay, white as the name suggests, stretches northwards from Sennen Cove to Gwynver beach. Gwynver is accessible from Whitesand at low tide; and down steep steps from Trevedra Cliff at high tide. On New Year’s Day it’s become a bit of a tradition for hardy folk to jump into the Whitesand waves for a swim. The south-west coastal footpath runs along Whitesand behind the dunes. No dogs are allowed on the beach between Easter and the 1st October.

Although it feels tucked away in the far west, Sennen self catering holidays are perfect for exploring West Penwith. Read about the history of West Penwith on our blog or visit for more info.

Things to do near Sennen

Roundhouse & Capstan Gallery
A unique circular gallery and converted netloft. It was originally used for housing a winch to haul boats up from the beach. Visit for more info.

Longships Lighthouse
The iconic Longships Lighthouse sits on Carn Bras, the biggest in a ribbon of jagged rocks just offshore. It appears curiously tall when seen from the road approaching Land's End. Just for a moment Longships seems to have landed at the holiday complex but it's all an illusion of topography. The galleon and helicopter might be set in cement in Land’s End square but the lighthouse is exactly where it should be, a mile off shore.

Land’s End:
Sennen Church is about a mile from the Land’s End Visitor Centre, where you can find Land’s End Hotel & restaurant, First & Last House, shops, cafe, exhibitions. It is famed for the signpost, at which you can have your photograph taken as one arm says Land’ End and the other your home town. There are weekly firework displays, special events and family entertainment. The best approach to the complex is via the coastal path, the sea views are magnificent. On an overcast day the visitor centre has much to occupy children.

Apple Tree Cafe, Trevescan
When self catering in Sennen, a place not to be missed is The Apple Tree Cafe at Trevescan, a left turn just before Land’s End. Home of Nick’s delicious home-made bread. It’s family friendly, amazing cakes, tea garden. A perfect place to meet before walking or after walking or probably before and after. 

From the Apple Tree Cafe, you can walk into Land’s End; you can walk across the fields to the coastal path. All you need is the O/S Pathfinder or O/S Explorer 7 (Land’s End, Penzance and St Ives). If you can find one, get a copy of a book called ‘West of HayleRiver’ by Gerald and Sylvia Priestland. It is brim-full of walks, pictures and information about places and legends across the whole of West Penwith. Visit for more info.

Farmers' Market
Every Tuesday, Sennen holds its very own farmers' market, perfect for stocking up on local produce when staying in a self catering cottage. Find out more on our blog: The Best Farmers’ Markets in West Cornwall

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Fantastic location with wonderful views out to sea. Good bus service. Comfortable, well equipped property, I would definitely go there again.

Sep 2019

Stunning views - such a great house to enjoy this wild stretch of coast from.

Aug 2019

We booked the house for the panoramic views and were not disappointed. The coastal walk to Lands End is on the doorstep and it is possible to walk down to Sennen Cove village and amazing beaches. The accommodation is practical, comfortable and well equipped. The village of Sennen Cove has a very good pub, fish and chip shop and an excellent gift shop with basic food stuffs run by an affable and informative owner! We had a great week and plan to revisit!

Jul 2019

We had a very comfortable stay at Cliffside. Couldn’t get over the stunning views & never tired of it ! Very well equipped house , warm & comfortable beds . We arrived on a windy rainy afternoon, it was a relief to be able to get in slightly earlier than arranged & thanks for welcome pack of scones & tea . Luckily weather improved & we were able to explore coastal walks & walked to Lands End & for someone who doesn't do much walking was easy to do & so good for the mind & soul !! I was worried about the steep driveway but we managed to unload & turn around & left car up by garages thereafter . Great location to visit other areas cornwall. Overall highly recommend & we would return! Thank you .

Jun 2019

We returned for a consecutive year to Cliffside which is something we have never done before in over 23 years of holidays together. The view is so special and the location is perfect.

May 2019

Excellent view of the sea and Sennen Cove Spacious and comfortable Cornish scones, jam and cream were a delight and an added bonus upon our arrival!

Mar 2019

Cliffside has an outstanding view and we sat with a glass of wine watching gannets diving and seals catching fish, all from the sofa. The cliff path was only a couple of minutes up the road and the beach is near by, which was ideal for the dogs. The down side was it doesn't have a tumble drier so if you have wet weather and a big family it could pose a slight problem. The garden's not enclosed so the dog's had to stay on the leads. That said, the pro's far out way the con's and we would definitely consider another holiday there.

Mar 2019

We had a lovely week at Cliffside. A highlight was the beautiful view.

Feb 2019

A lovely property with the most amazing views. Spotlessly clean and comfortable with a really well equipped kitchen. We very much appreciated the cream tea on arrival.

Feb 2019

Cliffside is a great comfortable house, in a fabulous location, with the most stunning sea view from the living room. Our family had the most wonderful Christmas and New Year at this cosy house and totally relaxed and chilled out watching the ever changing sea and sky.

We also loved the fact that there were so many beautiful walks straight from the front door and walking to Lands End and back twice a day with the dog, was beautiful. The surfers in the family loved the access to the gorgeous beach too.

The owners kindly decorated the house, left lovely treats, as did Aspects, who left a wonderful Christmas hamper, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The attention to detail by the owners to make our stay perfect, was really appreciated.

This was such a perfect house and location for our family and we loved it so much, we immediately booked for next Christmas and New Year!

Jan 2019

Our second stay here and we’ll be back for a third. Such a comfy, welcoming house with the most beautiful, ever changing views.

Nov 2018

Lovely house with stunning views. The scones on arrival is a nice touch and the house is well presented. We will be back hopefully soon

Kathy Proctor and family

Aug 2018

Stunning views with ample space for 6. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would highly recommend.

Aug 2018

The property (plus view and location) was fantastic. The facilities, equipment, presentaion and instructions were outstanding. The scones, clotted cream and jam was a lovely welcoming gesture. LJ (Retired letting agent)

Aug 2018

This is a view to die for!

Jul 2018

Amazing views! Hard to leave.

May 2018

Lovey cottage with outstanding views. Easy access to cliff walks. Kitchen is well equipped with an open planned living room.

Dec 2017

Cliffside has such a beautiful view we wanted to sit and look at the ever changing sea and harbour scene forever !

Nov 2017

Such a great property in the most beautiful location. We had to drag ourselves away for walks and, on return, spent happy hours gazing at the waves from the comfort of our armchairs!

Mar 2017

A lovely property with a stunning view.

Dec 2016

This cottage was amazing. Perfect for us as a family to stay in, sadly we only had a long weekend but will definitely book for a week in future (if we can beat everyone else to the school holidays!). The views were stunning, the accommodation and location were more thank we had hoped for. The cottage was clean, well equipped and in a good location (except if you don't like walking up hill then remember to go out in the car!). Land's End an easy walk away with the beach and pub in an easy walking distance. We would high recommend for family or groups of friends as it easy covers both.

Would we go back - in a heart beat!

Nov 2016

Great house and great location

Oct 2016

Perfect property set in one of the most spectacular locations in the country/World. The views were awesome and sunsets were just wonderful. Above Sennen Cove with uninterrupted views and a short walk to Lands End made this property perfect for my wife's birthday celebrations surrounded by her family.

Aug 2016

Spacious and comfortable cottage with stunning views

Jul 2016

You could sit and watch the view ALL day from cliffside. The colours of the sea, crashing waves in a storm and the howling wind around the house as you enjoy a sneaky afternoon glass of wine. We watched A flock of Gannets diving at a shoal of fish, closely followed by a pod of dolphins. How many other people in Britain can say they saw that out of their living room windows!!!

Feb 2016

A high quality property with amazing views.

Sep 2015

Fantastic week, beautiful location and superbly fitted out. We would all like to stay again

Aug 2015

We loved staying at Cliffside. The sea views were stunning. The cottage was extremely well equiped and we were all delighted with the cream tea awaiting us on arrival! We chose Cliffside as we could bring our dog, Max. It was lovely to have all the small things provided, eg washing up liquid, toilet rolls, etc. This was very much appreciated. We certainly hope to return in the near future..

Jun 2015

Gorgeous views and all the comforts of home.

Feb 2015

Stunning house, clean and warm with amazing views of Sennen cove and beyond!! Would highly recommend .
