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

Lovely place for a quiet holiday, great views perfect accommodation.

Trylewyth is the most wonderful place to stay - it has everything you could possibly need for the perfect holiday in Sennen Cove. I can't wait to book again!

All good

If you want a cosy cottage with fantastic views just a short walk away from an amazing beach this is it!

This cottage is just perfect. Perfect location, perfect view. Furnished fabulously. The new shower is just the icing on the cake. This was our second visit and we have already booked again next year.

Perfect location for a staycation. Second time we have stayed at this property, great location, all the facilities you could wish for and dog friendly. The cottage is a 2 minute walk from the beach and a 15-20 minute walk to Gwenver beach where the dogs are permitted all day long. A few small local shops, cafes and ice cream shops along the sea front. Will definitely be visiting again!

Trylewyth is absolutely beautiful, it is very well equiped, the beds were very comfortable and there's plenty of seating areas outside to enjoy the breathtaking views. The location is perfect, its just a few minutes walk to the beach and there's a small shop, a cafe and a pub very close by.

Furnished and equipped to a high standard with wonderful views from every room. The perfect spot for a relaxing break, although the recently extended inn below might get a bit lively in season. Good location for exploring West Penwith but you will have to go back to Penzance for any serious shopping.

The access is quite narrow. This won't be a problem for most car drivers but the entrance from Cove Hill is steep; approach it dead slow and keep to the left (going in) to avoid grounding if you're in a vehivcle with lowish ground clearance.

Trylewyth is a gem of a holiday cottage, beautifully appointed both inside the property , and in the external space on three sides. The outlook over Sennen Cove is outstanding.

We liked it that much that we’ve already booked it again for next year... it has everything you could wish for... loved it

A perfect little house in a superb location. We stayed during Storm Ellen and didn't hear a peep from the wind! It's nestled into the hillside and is sheltered from the elements. Panoramic views from all of the windows at the front of the house of an ever-changing sky and seascape. With a private driveway from the main road into Sennen and a path to the beach on the other side of the house, so 2 minutes from the seafront, it feels secluded, but accessible too. Comfortable and homely inside. A couple of new sofas, log burner (few logs supplied, along with matches and firelighters) and plenty of books, dvds and games to enjoy. Netflix on the TV. Outside you are spoilt for choice in seating areas. A patio area with table and 6 chairs leads from the kitchen. Bar stools for 2 overlooking the beach are adjacent to this patio. A summerhouse with a verandah, above the house, has 4 stools outside and a new rattan set is on the side patio, leading from the lounge. Beds are very comfy. Kitchen is well equipped, although flute glasses would have been nice. Diffusers make the house smell gorgeous. Coastal pictures adorn the walls. It's a great little bolt hole, that made for a relaxing and most welcome holiday. Thank you Aspects.

Fantastic location, fantastic view. We look forward to visiting again.

This really is a lovely property.We loved the location, so close to the beautiful beach as well as the pub and shop.The views from the property are quite exceptional.There is everything you need for a comfortable stay.

We have stayed here a few times and it’s everything a couple with 2 dogs need for a week. The pub is dog friendly and so is the beach as we go out of season. The view is fabulous and the house is warm and cosy We have mentioned that the sofas are small And lumpy and have been assured that they are being replaced.

I just spent a very special week at Trylewyth with my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. We fell in love with this beautiful little house. It is beautifully furnished and equipped and in a stunning location. The drive IS steep as stated in the information but very manageable and there is room to park two cars (just make sure you turn the first one before parking the second!). We didn't leave Sennen Cove all week but just enjoyed everything it and Trylewith had to offer!

Such a fabulous holiday home with everything a family with teens needs. Reliable Wifi, great location and views. Clean, modern with thoughtful touches like the binoculars and the great selection of books and games. So lovely sitting out on the deck. We would be very keen to return.

What an amazing holiday it was! Trylewyth had everything you could hope for; outstanding views, great proximity to Sennen, extremely comfortable and was kitted out with everything you needed... and more. Only negative was we had to leave! Thank you, we will definitely return.

A fantastic cottage with spectacular views - the interior is perfect and we loved the place from the first minute !

Trylewyth is just wonderful. Its secluded, calm, quiet. You can relax. The views over the Atlantic are fantastic. You can enjoy the wonderful wild surroundings, the flowers, the birds.. We could stay there forever!

A top-notch property with spectacular views inside and out. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Everything you need to make your stay easy; modern appliances , lovely kitchen ware , a great sounding TV with Freeview & basic Netflix. A fantastic log burner. We got our kiln dried wood from Tesco garage in Penzance. Outside has different sitting areas to take in those views or sit in the sun or get some shade, the garden is well maintained. The pub is a 5 minute stroll down the road or, use the cute little path from the cottage I could write a book on how wonderful this property is. You won't be disappointed.

This cottage has a fantastic view and is minutes away from an enormous beach. We come out of season so the beach allows dogs. It is warm and welcoming.

Trylewyth is excellent, the cottage is well equipped, comfortable and clean with great views, everything you need to have a very relaxing holiday

An outstanding cottage with excellent level s of furnishing/equipment. Outstanding coastal views. Recommended.

Aspects holiday limited are very professional the cottage was fabulous just as it was in the picture could not fault any of it.

A superb cottage, with fantastic sea views from most windows. The equipment levels were excellent and the electric heating kept the cottage warm and cosy. The hot water system, being by immersion heater only, was a little disappointing as one tank barely provided enough hot water for one bath. The drive way to the property is quite steep from the road and is then quite narrow so I was glad we only have a small car. Overall though I would say that this is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in from the point of view of the cottage itself and the continually varying sea views

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; we are sorry if you experienced any problems with the hot water. The tank usually heats up quickly enough that this isn't a problem but we will certainly keep a close eye on this. And thank you for your comments on the access; we try to make this as clear as possible on the description so hope that this was what had been expected, and wasn't too scary for you. We are glad to hear that you had such a great time here, and hope that we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

We spent a week in Trylewyth during November and found it to be perfect for a holiday, the cottage is everything you would need for a relaxing carefree break with terrific views. We will be rebooking for next year. Thank You Jim Hunter

A wonderful cottage with sweeping views of the sea. Very comfortable for four people and exceptionally well equipped. The owners have thought of everything and it is a home from home. Even in cool and rainy weather it is a delightful place to stay.

Perfect house and location. I'll definitely be rebooking next year.
