Far West Sennen

£694 - £1875 per week
Book
 

Breathtaking views await you through large picture windows that make up the entire seaward side of the open plan living space at Far West. This captivating property sits in a commanding elevated position on the cliff above Sennen Cove. There is ample accommodation, sleeping up to six guests in three en suite bedrooms, with a gorgeous open plan sitting room, complete with cosy woodburner, the perfect spot for storm watching on one of Cornwall's wilder days, Far West really is perfect for larger families or couples at any time of year. The patio area chases the sun from sunrise to sunset, so is the ideal spot for al fresco breakfasts complete with fresh coffee and hot Cornish buttered crumpets or evenings with glasses of bubbles and entertainment under the stars.

Sennen Cove is a short walk down a steep hill, with a mile and a half of golden sands where nature sets the pace. In summer, turquoise seas and white sands tempt guests onto Sennen Beach. In winter, the woodburner crackles and the Atlantic Ocean roars, setting the scene for dramatic storm-watching sessions. With Lands End, Porthcurno and the world famous Minack Theatre just around the corner, Sennen Cove is the perfect base to explore West Cornwall. Whether looking for a bucket and spade holiday by the sea, or a writer's bolthole to let your imagination run as wild as the weather, Far West really is perfect for larger families or couples at any time of year.

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.

Surfing

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 www.sennen-cove.com 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 www.round-house.co.uk 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 www.theappletreecafe.co.uk 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.

Far West is a joy to go into as you are greeted by a stunning ocean view as soon as you enter the property. A lovely spacious place to stay. Very clean, very quiet, comfortable beds and sofa. Lovely outside space for eating outside too. Well equipped and just a great place to stay. We loved it. As it’s about as far south as you can go in Cornwall, so it’s a long drive but so worth the journey. We will definitely stay there again. Sennen Cove is a great beach and it’s a quick walk to Lands End for some stunning sunsets.

Aug 2020

We have had the best time this last week during our stay at Far West. What a beautiful apartment to rest in - with its ever-changing view of the sea through big wide windows, large sofas to curl up in and comfy beds to sleep in - with the added comfort of snuggly soft Atlantic blankets too. We feel we were totally spoiled! The apartment was scrupulously clean, well equipt and the attention to detail was second to none - from the beautiful art on the walls to the binoculars through which to watch the surfers at Sennen Cove, from the stunning hydrangeas adorning the tables to a choice of blankets to wrap up in during the cool of the evening as we sat on the private patio area in the late evening sunshine. What a treat it has been! Would love to think we'd be back someday soon.
