A large hall leads into the stunning open plan living area with white ceramic floors and under floor heating. Modern furniture and a generously sized dining table set the scene. The dining area is set along the fully glazed frontage with views across Sennen Bay and azure blue seas below with French doors leading out to the garden. Cosy up in front of the wood-burner on the stylish sofas or Fat Boy™ bean bag and relax, the house has all the mod-cons you could wish for; a TV with a Blu Ray DVD player, an Apple speaker and numerous DVDs to snuggle up and watch, as well as full WiFi.


The kitchen is stunning with grey polished stone worktops and white drawer units, separated from the dining and living area by a large kitchen island. The Miele appliances and American fridge freezer, which has an ice making facility, are all top notch and fully integrated. If you don't feel like cooking why not book a private chef who can prepare a beach barbecue or a dinner party whilst you sit back and relax, taking in the superb sea views at any time of the year. Contact us for our favourite recommendations.


Soft grey carpeted stairs lead up to the piece de résistance, the master bedroom with its super king sized bed and polished granite wet-room. French doors lead out from here to a decked balcony which overlooks Sennen Cove, with beautiful views over towards Cape Cornwall. The three ground floor bedrooms have heated stone floors and share the large wet-room. The first bedroom has a double bed and magnificent sea views. The second has a king-sized bed and patio doors leading out to the cliff top terrace and the third ground floor bedroom has two single beds and children's toys.


The large modern family wet-room is downstairs with a sumptuous bath and walk in shower. The heated stone flooring is extended through here. There is also an outside heated shower ideal for slucing off the sand and salt after a day on the beach!


This luxury retreat in Cornwall is most comfortable for a maximum of 6 adults and 2 children as in one bedroom there are bunk beds, there are two large sofas and a large bean bag in the sitting room.


There is a huge built-in barbecue, perfect for cooking up a feast! A garden suite is provided to lounge out on, perfect for a spot of al fresco eating watching the ebb and flow of the Atlantic below. Seek soothing staycation moments in the bubbling hot tub, a dreamy spot to forget the world for a while overlooking rolling tides. Please note that some areas of the hedge surrounding the garden are open and children should be supervised.


Why not learn to surf at the renowned Sennen Surf School, voted one of the top 10 places to learn to surf in the UK, run by the ever enthusiastic Dave Muir and his superb team then after a day soaking up the rays and the surf on the beach head off to nearby St Ives to enjoy some delicious food in one of the many gorgeous restaurants. The South West Coastal path passes the top of the drive, perfect for accessing some of the most spectacular walks in the UK. The Minack Theatre is nearby too and this part of West Cornwall has some of the most beautiful and unspoilt coves to explore if you fancy exploring off the beaten track. If you want to keep things simple, stroll down to the local pub in Sennen, have dinner at the Beach Restaurant then crash out ready for another heavenly day by the Cornish sea.


There is parking for three cars next to the house.


Chy-an-Gargo has WiFi so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Chy-an-Gargo:

Beautiful location and very luxurious house. Would highly recommend.

Perfect cottage in the perfect location! There’s everything you need for a week away, we will definitely be back.

This is our second winter break at Chy an Gargo and we just loved it! Breath-taking views, amazing night skies and stars, sandy beach and coastal walks, mugs of hot chocolate in front of the wood burner, the freshest Newlyn fish and all in superb comfort and style in the house.... I can't think of a better winter get-away. Thank you all.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you!

It's the perfect retreat, excellent location - comfy on the inside!

Who needs to go abroad? This was perfect.

An excellent cottage with stunning views. We loved it and would like to visit it again

Beautiful accommodation clean and well maintained with calm and relaxing decor. Amazing views of Sennen which can be enjoyed from the hot tube. Easter time was a great time to visit as it wasn’t too busy and we were able to do fresh cliff top walks from the house and as mentioned the hot tub kept you warm with a refreshing breeze on your face. What a wonderful place! A really special place which I would highly recommend!

This was our first Cornish winter retreat and we LOVED it! Chy an Gargo is the perfect venue: chilling by the fire, watching the waves and weather roll across the bay and over white sands of Sennen, blustery cliff top walks (dolphins and diving gannets) and sunset and star gazing over Lands End (no light pollution!). Thank you for a unique and invigorating get-away.

Second year in a row, Chy-an-Gargo is an outstanding house in an incredible location. We love it!

Another great holiday with Boutique Retreats. I wouldn’t book with any other company for Cornwall. Chy-an-Gargo is fabulous and for Parkrunners, Land’s End Parkrun is only 1 mile down the cycle path. It was great fun.

Incredible views and brilliant shared living/dining space. Well equipped kitchen in this modern, comfortable property.

Great house with perfect views over the cove.

We had a lovely week staying at Chy-An-Gargo and would not hesitate to return. This cottage is now the standard against which all others will be compared.

Stunning location, amazing views.

Our 8th repeat booking says it all, we love it here!

A fabulous property with great amenities in a wonderful location. Comfortable for two (smaller) families - the open plan kitchen / diner with large table by doors that open out onto the best sea view was a highlight. We went in summer so we could surf at the fabulous Sennen surf school, but would be really cosy in winter too. Amazing coastal path walking in both directions and only a short drive from the Minack. We’ve already booked to return

Loved our stay in a wonderful setting.Beautiful house.

A beautiful home in a spectacular setting!

A beautiful house to stay in with amazing views. Lovely modern interior and worked well for 6 adults. Walking distance to the beach too - would definitely return!

Absolutely loved our stay, and already looking to book the next one!

We stayed at Chy-n-Gargo at the beginning of October. This is a beautiful home, superbly located and fabulously presented. Everything you could wish for is provided to enable a truly comfortable and relaxing holiday. We cannot wait to visit again.

'Beautiful house, fully equipped with everything we needed. Outstanding views and incredible night skies' - October 2020

'The same glowing review from us again this year! We have booked the same house for the 7th year running for 2021 - I don’t know what we would do without our Chy-an-Gargo holiday! We absolutely love it and would love to find twice a year! We never want to leave this beautiful house and magnificent view. I can’t give it high enough praise!' - August 2020

'A wonderful location with spectacular views whatever the weather.' - January 2020

'Chy-an-Gargo - Wow!!! Me and my wife stayed at this great accommodation as part of ourt mini moon break. it was amazing, the accommodation is secluded overlooking Sennen Cove and the view was amazing. The location is perfect, Lands End and Sennen Cover are both easy within walking distance and we did on many occasions. the house itself is well equipped with lovely kitchen, bathroom and living areas. There is a great little book which gives ideas of day trips, the little market on Tuesday morning was really nice - we picked up a few things. Generally a little more than what we normally pay for, which was fine as our mini moon, but definitely worth it and will be booking with Boutique Retreats again.' - October 2019

'Amazing location, clean and luxurious house and sea views - you could have made even more of this in the property description! We’d love to come back again.' - June 2019

'It's perfect. A beautiful home from home with fabulous views - an absolute retreat!' - May 2019
