English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


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.

    Delighted with the accommodation, very clean and well equipped. The views from the cottage are amazing and just a short walk to Whitesands beach. We've already booked our return visit. Would highly recommend to families and dog owners. Had a very enjoyable holiday.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. I try to stay in all our properties myself every year and find the shower OK. It's an instant shower, not a power shower, so requires a little patience for the temperature to settle.

    It’s always a lovely break to stay at Bishop Rock or any of the Carn Towan properties (We’ve tried them all). Wendy the housekeeper is friendly and accommodating if ever there is a problem - not that there are many. The new fire and exposing the granite makes the cottage even better than is already was. We enjoy ourselves so much there we’ve already booked for next year.
