Sennen Cove is one of the UK's best surf hotspots, a magical bay sandwiched between Land's End and Cape Cornwall which receives the first and often the biggest Atlantic Swells as they reach Britain. Sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds by the bulk of Pedn-men-du cliff, there is a small but beautiful sandy beach in the harbour and plenty of rock pools for exploring! The South West coast path is within easy reach and the views from this section of the walk are absolutely staggering, hard granite promontories, surf battered islands, lighthouses, sea birds, secluded coves, beaches, the list goes on... This is an unbelievably stunning part of the county and you will cherish memories of your holiday.

Sennen Cove is located between Cape Cornwall to the North and Land's End to the South. It is the most westerly surfing hot spot in the UK and is often the first beach to experience any large Atlantic depressions as they approach the UK. In January 2014 the Cove was on the front page of many national newspapers as Storm Hercules struck and breaking waves were photographed towering over the village. The beach is monitored by the RNLI life guards during the summer season and is a permanent base for a Tamar class and an inshore lifeboat. There is a slipway which can be used to launch small boats into the harbour and a number of pubs, restaurants and cafes that overlook the bay.
Land's End is a stunning granite promontory that is the most south western point on the mainland. The tourist attraction that was built there in the 90s provides some great entertainment for children while overlooking the Longships lighthouse and further west towards the Scilly Isles. To the east lies Penzance and Mounts Bay with the magnificent St Michael's Mount. Before that near Porthcurno is the Minack Theatre, an open air venue which is open between May and September. Geevor Tin Mine is an education for all age groups but for children the chance to pan for gold is not to be missed.
Cape Cornwall, England's only Cape, rears 229 feet out of the Atlantic and offers spectacular views over the Western Approaches and Land's End. The Cape was acquired by the National Trust in 1987 to protect the area and its rare flora and fauna. Ornithologists can spot Cornish choughs, peregrine falcons, sparrow hawks and many other sea birds. Sheltered Priest's Cove, with its rocky beach and sea pool, is within 5 minutes walking distance and is still used by local fishermen. The Cape was originally believed to be the Western most point of the mainland but usurped when accurate cartography proved this was in fact Lands End. A mere 4 miles south (and very slightly west!) Cape Cornwall tin mine was operated intermittently between 1838 and 1883 after which time it was closed. The 1864 chimney from the mine has been left as a navigational marker for shipping traffic and stands tall on the top of the Cape.

A comfortable well equipped cottage. Perfect for our needs for 3 family generations to stay. We love Sennen, so to be able to walk to the beach was fantastic. We would definitely stay again, thank you!
Guest from Cambridge stayed for 7 nights.
We have visited Sennen many, many times over the years and Atlantic House comes very high in terms of quality of accommodation. It provides very comfortable accommodation with a very well-equipped kitchen, lovely dining room and a good sized sitting room. The bedrooms all have super comfortable beds with lovely linen and good pillows (a rare find in holiday rentals). Most rooms have wonderful views out to sea.The master bedroom has a small shower unit and a separate loo with handbasin which some visitors might find challenging to access given the slanted ceiling. The house has lots of charm, plenty of storage and was perfect for the 6 of us (all adults). The location on Maria's Lane is wonderful with very easy access (down a steep path) to the cove and to the many footpaths - it was a joy to walk out of the house onto the Lands End path.
Guest from Witney stayed for 7 nights.
This house is in a perfect location for walking. Dog owners will delight in being able to walk straight out on to the coastal path. Everything is provided at the house but it has the feel of just a rental not a home. There are three saucepans in the kitchen, one of which was too worn to use. The sofas are worn too so not brilliantly comfortable. There are several blown double glazed window units that need replacing as views are obstructed. Bedroom window needs to be fixed so it can be opened. On a good note the bedroom is huge and bed is very comfortable. The lane is quiet and the location is close enough to Sennen Cove centre to walk to of an evening time. We managed to get our estate car parked easily on the drive. The welcome pack of wine and Cornish biscuits was appreciated.
Guest from Bristol stayed for 3 nights.
Nice, well-presented property on a quiet road about 10 min walk up from the beach front. The property was roomy and well kitted out. Everything was clean and tidy and everything worked as expected. Due to other houses opposite there are limited views of the sea. All in all, no complaints. The house has a drive for parking, we only had one car, but at a push, you could probably fit two in. However, as the road is a single track there is limited room for reversing out onto the road so care would be required. The house is on a fairly steep hill and the garden behind is up about 10 steps so might prove a problem for those with limited mobility. The garden is all lawn and has a table and chairs, I think it would be quite nice in Summer. There is a lane down to the seafront, I didn't use it but I think it is largely traffic free, so much better than the main road to Sennen Cove, if you are walking. At the end of the road, there are paths to the South West Coastal Path and Lands End is walking distance away.
Guest from Callington stayed for 3 nights.
Beautiful property, well maintained. Had a problem accessing the key, the release mechanism was still, contacted the owner who alerted the maintenance chap, fixed in 5 minutes. Excellent service. Problem with the bath overflow, we mentioned it last year but still leaking into the downstairs shower.
Guest from YORK stayed for 7 nights.
This is a spacious property located on a cul-de-sac road which forms part of the coastal path, making excellent hiking directly from the house in either direction. There are three bathrooms although the small en-suite is difficult to navigate with a low sloping ceiling. Bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage space for clothes, and overall the property has a good size dining table seating at least eight and a comfortable sitting room. Again the kitchen is spacious and well-equipped but the dish washer is irritatingly located on the opposite side from the kitchen sink. Overall we had a successful holiday at Atlantic house and I would recommend the property to others.
Guest from Hoofddorp stayed for 7 nights.
A very nice, comfortably decorated house. Well equipped to house a family. Very nice view over Sennen Cove. Very near Lands End (2 miles walking). Good base to explore the wonderful Cornish countryside.
Guest from Ringwood stayed for 4 nights.
Atlantic House is situated at the top of a hill with views over the top of the front line properties, out to the ocean. The directions provided took us straight to the property first time which was great after a long trip there. Inside was clean and tidy.The beds were beautifully made up and comfortable.And towels provided for all guests in the bathrooms. The kitchen was very well kitted out with plenty of cutlery and crockery for a large family. We really enjoyed the area with pleasant walks and the beach to enjoy.
Moor Magy is a unique cottage which is bursting with character and original features from reclaimed hard wood furniture to a suspended table in the kitchen, it is situated down a long drive with far reaching rural views and an array of dogs, cats, horses and a friendly donkey to keep you company.

Glebe Farmhouse is a traditional 19th century granite cottage, the living room feels contemporary but then there are some lovely character features including a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, typically thick walls and exposed beams. A dog friendly cottage, the lawn garden is walled, private and enclosed and this quiet hamlet is virtually free from traffic.
