Holidays in Sennen

Sennen is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt areas of Cornwall, famous for its unique location and beauty. Sennen is one of Cornwall's most popular surf spots, and its rugged scenery and many coves provide the perfect place to explore on a self catering holiday.

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.

Top tip

Spend the festive season in Sennen and take part in the annual Christmas day swim!

Surfing in Sennen

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.

Beach & 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 15th May and the 30th September, between 10am and 6pm.

Although it feels tucked away in the far west, Sennen self catering holidays are perfect for exploring West Penwith.

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

We enjoyed our stay at Tresco which is a good base to explore this lovely part of Cornwall. The property is comfortable, warm and is very well equipped. The wifi is excellent.

Perfect accommodation and location. Good walking distance to the beach. Lovely sea view. Well worth the stay !!

Tresco is small in size but well equipped, clean, bus route and walking convenient.

I’ve just returned from another lovely holiday staying at Tresco. I love this apartment and feel at home there. It’s a great walk down to the stunning Sennen beach and the views are spectacular. Thanks again for a fantastic holiday and I will definitely be returning whenever I can.

Nice place to stay garden was very private. Every thing u need. Only downside was being bang next to the road but overall lovely.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thanks for your review. We are glad to hear that you liked it. Tresco is just off the A30, so you may hear traffic, particularly during the busier times of year, but with such ease of access to the A30, it means that you can very easily get out exploring all the amazing places nearby. You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding where to explore in that part of Cornwall. We hope that you enjoyed your time here and hopefully we will see you again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Comfortable flat for 2 people with everything we needed - warm and cosy with a sea view from the kitchen window. We didn't use the garden due to weather but it looked nice. Good location for exploring the far end of Cornwall, and we appreciated the guide books and map in the flat.

We certainly made the most of the location at the far end of Cornwall. Surfing in the cove, walking to Lands End, with a stop off for lunch at The First and Last. Visiting the Telegraph Museum at Porthcurno on a very wet morning and lunch at the Logan Rock Inn. Watching seals at Portheras and lunch at The North Inn (there's a theme running here) before a visit to the evocative Crown Mines at Botallack. Walking the causeway to St Michael's Mount, a pub lunch at Marazion (there's a surprise) and driving along the front through Penzance, Newlyn and picturesque Mousehole to reach Lamorna Cove through the wooded valley. A visit to Poldark location Porthgwarra Cove via Polgigga, where cars give way to geese and ducks as they cross the road from the village pond. So sweet. And still so much to do, we'll have to come back.

We have just returned from a lovely week at Tresco. A lovely little apartment, wonderfully equipped, with great views from the kitchen window. A 20 minute walk takes you down to Sennen Beach which our dog absolutely loved. We had a wonderful sunset picnic and play one evening! So close to Land’s End and all that breathtaking scenery and my favourite Botallack. We might be living in strange times at the moment but this was a very welcome break for us and much appreciated. The team at Aspects are wonderful and the whole booking procedure was extremely easy. Thank you.

Excellent location, easily in reach of many many attractions in southern Cornwall, beautiful views, just a short walk to the beach (although a steep hill) facilities within the property were good, however, we did have an issue with the cooker on arrival. Reasonable value for money, didn’t expect the ‘garden’ to be 30ft away from the property

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were sorry to read that you had an issue with the oven on arrival; I just wanted to reassure you that this has all been followed up fully since. Following your feedback, we have also now made the location of the garden a lot clearer on the website. We always want to be completely open and transparent with how properties are marketed, so thank you for highlighting that we hadn't made this clear enough. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely cosy apartment for two people. Amazing views from the kitchen window of the sea and sunset. Sea views from the garden but it is across the car park.

Nicely decorated & well-equipped property; a lovely place to stay.

A lovely property in a quiet location with ever changing sea and sunset views through the kitchen picture window. Great location to visit Lands End and Porthcurno. Dogs are allowed on Sennen beach after 7pm which our dog loved.

Location was good if you like peace and quiet

Beautiful apartment in a stunning location. Well equipped with milk in the fridge on arrival and some local beverages to start our holiday with. Highly recommend aspects holidays and the apartment and will definitely be returning! Thanks for a wonderful holiday

I’ve just returned from another lovely holiday with Aspects. I stayed in Tresco a very nice property which was very clean and modern. There was wonderful sea views from the kitchen. The property is in a great location for walking on the coastal path and to the beautiful Sennen Beach which is breathtaking.The ladies in the Penzance office were very helpful finding out which bus stop to get off to reach the property which was very much appreciated. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday.

Nothing good , maybe bed was comfy

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry to hear this, especially as this is usually such a popular and well-loved property. We will be in touch to discuss this further because if there is anything that could be improved, the owner is always very open to feedback and doing any work that is needed to keep the property to the high standards that guests would expect. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely few days spent at Tresco. Perfectly equipped inside and outside. Very clean and tastefully decorated and considering time of year reasonably priced. Allocated parking a welcome bonus. Would definitely recommend Tresco.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this cute, little apartment. Was comfortable with all mod-cons and close to Sennen Cove and stunning beaches.

A lovely apartment in a smashing location, good car parking, there is a garden which we didn't use but it looked a nice place to sit, everything was in place that we needed, we would definitely stay there again.

Very cosy and clean with all the luxuries needed in a self catering spot. A very well cared for space in which to spend a few days. About a ten minute walk from the beach. The welcoming scones and clotted cream were a very thoughtful treat!
