Boutique Cottages in Sennen

Out & About

Jutting out from Cornwall’s west coast and greeting the Atlantic head on, Sennen is nose-to-nose with the sea. Wild and rugged on the outside with a soft, sandy underbelly, it occupies a truly unique setting and is ideal for those wanting fresh air in their lungs, saltwater on their skin and wind in their hair. As popular amongst surfers chasing “one more wave” as families looking for fun on one of the area’s sprawling beaches, it has all the ingredients for a Cornish holiday you’ll be talking about long after you leave. 

A short drive from Penzance and its plethora of award-winning restaurants, Porthcurno and the world-famous Minack Theatre and the country’s most westerly point, Land’s End, Sennen boasts plenty of credentials both near and far. Pour through our luxury cottages in Sennen and look forward to a 5-star holiday. Whether you are treating yourself to a well-deserved solo break, spontaneous romantic retreat or a group holiday in a spacious dog-friendly family home, you can savour every moment of your Sennen escape from the comforts of your private self-catering retreat. 

When in Cornwall, fresh fish is the dish du jour. Pay homage to the area’s natural beauty and maritime history with some classic salt-and-vinegared fish n’ chips from Blue Lagoon Fish Bar or 190 Degrees West and wander down to the shore. A quintessential seaside experience, you can take a seat on the harbour wall or sandy beach and watch the sun bounce off the water as gulls dip and soar with effortless grace far above. 

For pub vibes the Old Success Inn and the First & Last Inn both have their fair share of history with tales of shipwrecks and smugglers and provide a winsome setting for a nourishing meal and pint of local brew. If seafood doesn’t satisfy you, head inland to the Apple Tree Café for flavours of the world in a quiet corner of the UK, or try and catch the mobile vegan Vood Bar for the most dribble-worthy savoury and sweet treats imaginable.

Tear away from your Boutique Retreat, take a break from the waves or enjoy a pit stop halfway through an adventure and head to Little Bo Café. One of the most popular and dog-friendly places in Sennen there’s no better way to refresh and recharge than with a warming cuppa or refreshing tipple at this seaside café. Later in the evening, break away from your luxury cottage in Sennen and head to either the Old Success Inn or the First & Last Inn for a well-deserved glass of local ale or vino.

As well as having the honour of being one of the best surfing beaches in the UK, Sennen also has a beer named after it! ‘Sennen’ by local brewery Skinner’s is described as a ‘pale zingy beer’ - just the thing to match a balmy summer evening on the sand with loved ones. There are several breweries and cider farms around Cornwall, including Penzance’s Polgoon Vineyard, so mark the occasion with a glass of something remarkable and a toast to beautiful surroundings.

During your luxury holiday in Sennen, make sure you spend as much time as possible on the beach. Whether you are learning to surf, sunbathing under summer sunshine or enjoying a crisp winter’s walk, nothing will cleanse the soul and free the mind like a few hours by the shore. To stretch your legs further, stomp across the cliffs to Land’s End.

As well as its natural beauty, Cornwall is famous for its rich artistic and industrial history. Dig a little deeper into the county’s culture and descend into the basement of Sennen’s Grade-II listed Roundhouse and Capstan gallery, see the area’s fascinating old tin mines (including Botallack Mine) and visit Penzance’s Geevor Tin Mine, Cornwall Tourism’s ‘Winner of Winners’. 

A short drive from Sennen, you can also see the world-famous Minack Theatre, an incredible clifftop amphitheatre. Spend your days visiting gardens, playing golf at Cape Cornwall Golf Club and simply enjoying all that this incredible part of the world has to offer. For a luxury self-catering cottage in Sennen, you’re in the right place!
