With wet-suit and surfboard hire, and plenty of storage for equipment, this property is perfect for watersports enthusiasts.

Only a 250-yard walk from the beautiful sandy beach of Whitesand Bay, this charming little row of three delightful and comfortably furnished holiday cottages commands magnificent views over the bay and Sennen Cove. On a quiet lane leading only to the cliffs, they have been very tastefully converted from a spacious Victorian house and are stunningly set in several acres of shared natural grounds; home to a wonderful variety of wildlife which can easily be seen from the steep beach path and the cottages themselves.
The beach at Whitesand is magnificent; a splendid mile of sand which has been awarded Blue Flag status and is excellent for surfing (lifeguards operate throughout the summer, and there is also a ban on dogs from 1st May to 30th September. Dogs are permitted year round on nearby Gwenver Beach). Sennen Cove (½ mile) is a picturesque little fishing village looking out over the bay. It offers shops, pub, restaurants – even a lifeboat station – all within walking distance. There are some beautiful walks along the coast towards Cape Cornwall in one direction, and beyond Land’s End in the other.
The famous outdoor Minack Theatre is only 3 miles away and Penzance (7 miles) boasts a mainline station, shops, inns, swimming-pool, sailing and tennis. There is a golf course at St Just (4 miles) and facilities for squash and badminton are available locally. Picturesque St Ives (a renowned haunt of artists) is 15 miles away along the spectacular north coast.
The Carn Towan cottages are perfectly positioned for enjoying a Cornish holiday – and are cosily heated throughout, with double glazing, making them ideal for all-year-round breaks. Shops ½ mile.

A delightful cottage set at the end of the row, next to Longships. Entrance to fully fitted kitchen. Living/dining room with multi-fuel stove and sea view. First floor: Two bedrooms; one spacious double with sea view, and one twin, each with wash basin. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    This cottage is amazing I wish we had known about it years ago !! If it had been Summer we would have attempted the walk from the cottage down to the beach but as it was Winter we felt unable to risk a change in weather which would have made the up hill return a lot harder. The views from the cottage were brilliant. We cheated and drove round to the beach and it was wonderful.

    This cottage is in a great location, the views are amazing. We enjoyed walks in all directions and had a lesson with the local surf school even though it was late October! It is a very well equipped cottage, especially in the kitchen. Would recommend a stay here and will be returning.

    Great stay in a great location. Need to be fit enough to walk up and down into the bay but there is always the car but have to pay for parking in the bay. Met the owners who were very nice. Be careful of rocks sticking out in car park at Bishop Rock. I damaged my car.

    We have stayed here 3 times over the past 6 years and we have always loved the location of this property. Staying here this time we found that the kitchen and utensils were very tired and in need of updating. The location is second to none. In a number of rooms wallpaper is peeling and showing signs of age/damp. We would stay here again but only if we knew that things had been upgraded.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. I checked the property carefully on my recent visit and do not agree that the kitchen utensils are tired. However, there was one pan with a badly-scratched, non-stick surface, which I have replaced. Sorry this was overlooked. We do have an intermittent, unpredictable problem with damp affecting upstairs rooms at times; we have no permanent solution yet. The walls are two-foot thick granite (which is porous) and filled with “rab” (crushed granite subsoil); therefore they always contain moisture, but they're meant to “breath”. When it was built in the 19th century, the rooms would have been drafty, which helped but is not acceptable today. The property is in an exposed, sea-facing location and sometimes the atmosphere does not allow sufficient evaporation. We try to keep the wallpaper in good condition; sorry we failed in your week.

    This the first time we have stayed at Bishops Rock and it certainly will not be the last.The position of the property is beautiful the pictures do not do it justice .Sennen cove is lovely for dog walking,Gwenver beach is just round the next cove,and the walk to lands end is well worth it. The walk up from the beach is a tough old walk,you will feel muscles you have not felt before but all in all this is a great place to stay.
