When all you're after is a great location/base from which to explore the surrounding area, The Studio at Alsia Mill fits the bill.

Be it a day trip to St. Ives or St. Michael's Mount, taking in an afternoon performance at the Minark Theatre, strolling on the beach in Sennen Cove, watching a film at the lovely little independent Newlyn Filmhouse or having a lovely meal at 2 Fore Street in Mousehole, this was a ideal place to stay.

If you wanted a little more space then The Barn would be the better option at the site, if available.

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.

We have just spent a week at the studio. The setting is idyllic and the studio beautiful. We had fantastic weather so we're out and about a lot. Be sure to arrive with enough food etc to get you started, the mill is, a little out of the way for just bobbing out for something you've forgotten. Be aware that the ford can be a bit daunting, I wouldn't like to cross it in a low slung vehicle. Take binoculars the stars are amazing. Have a great time in a little bit of heaven

Apr 2019

Although the roof windows were great for letting in light along with the ease of shutting the blinds . Unfortunately if it happens to rain at night the water dripping from the trees makes sleep all but impossible .A remedy for the problem would be the removal of the over hanging branches .I cant believe that we had to ask for a change of linen and towels each week even though we had requested this at the time of booking .Anyone letting out holiday properties should be obliged to spend a week living in them to iron out any problems

Jul 2018

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry that the note on your booking regarding a weekly linen change was missed. Many guests prefer to be left undisturbed during their holiday, and so prefer to wash their own linen, so we cannot offer this as an automatic facility to everyone on bookings longer than a week; however, I can see from the notes on your booking, that you had requested for a linen change, so there is no excuse for that not happening, and we cannot apologise enough for that. Regarding the dripping rain noise, this has only been mentioned once before, so we will continue to monitor for any further feedback on this and pass on the information, to see if the trees are usually cut back further than they were for your stay. Thank you for letting us know, and we are sorry if it led to disturbed sleep. We hope that you enjoyed everything else about this property and its lovely peaceful location. Tanya, Customer Services

Stunning location very welcoming which is very important on arrival that starts your holiday ??

Jun 2018

The Studio was perfect for our one week stay, very well equipped and comfortable. The property is beautiful and it is ideally located. We would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Apr 2018

I contacted your office concerning noise by rain on the velux windows which kept us from having a good nights sleep even a peaceful day. As stated someone from your office should visit this property when it rains heavily. It does spoil a holiday when you want a peaceful week. Like Location. Not so happy about noise unless it's a dry week. Rain you can not stop but it should not spoil a break

Sep 2017

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really sorry to hear about how noisy you had found the rain on the velux windows. Quite honestly, this is the first time that this has ever been reported, so at this stage, we are not sure if it is louder due to the type of window and its angle, or if the trees had grown over further than normal, making the dripping noise louder. When you stay in a property, you get to experience it in a different way than we do when we inspect the properties, so thank you for bringing this to our attention; we will closely monitor for any further feedback. We hope that you still enjoyed your time here despite this, and thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

We loved the secluded and tranquil location of The Studio. The outside terrace was perfect for enjoying an evening drink, and a real sun trap. The property is stylishly decorated and comfortable, and a perfect base to explore West Cornwall. We would definitely stay again.

Jun 2017

Wonderful idyllic, quiet and perfect location for coastal walks around the tip end of Cornwall. Lovely pubs close by especially the Logan in Treen. Perfect for trips to Sennen and the Minack Theatre. Also perfect for dogs.

Jun 2017

Outstanding location and a real gem of a find, especially as this was a last minute break. Ideal for those who like privacy with access to 4 acres of stunning grounds and the studio was excellent like a 4 star hotel and the patio and garden area perfect if you have a pet. You are a few miles from Sennen Cove and excellent other beaches and places to see. Can recommend the Sennen to Lands End costal walk. Thank you Aspect Holidays truly a memorable stay.

Sep 2016

A beautiful studio in peaceful landscaped gardens. Perfect location to enjoy all the sites of Cornwall hence just home from our second visit and already booked for next year!

Aug 2016

It really was a lovely place and these issues didn't spoil whole experience

Jul 2016

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really sorry that the shower tray blocked during your stay and the ventilation in the bathroom not felt to be sufficient; the shower tray was seen to as soon as we were made aware, so draining away as normal now and we are monitoring any further feedback on the bathroom ventilation and will check on this on our next inspection. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Great to hear that you had a lovely stay here. Tanya, Customer Services

The Studio and Alsia Mill exceeded expectations and was just what we wanted. Just the right size for a couple wanting to escape for the weekend. Lovely finish and decor, and the bi-fold doors allow you to open the whole place up and appreciate the beautiful and peaceful setting. It is also ideally situated for Sennen, Porthcurno and St Ives isn't too far either. We had a delightful stay, will come again and highly recommend the Studio.
