Shark Fin completely has the wow factor! It is elegant, stylish and boasts breathtaking sea views which guests are sure to love.

270 degrees of stunning beach and coastal views.
The perfect relaxing retreat for families or couples.

Imagine waking up to the sunrise overlooking two of England’s best beaches at Sennen and towards Cape Cornwall, and in the evening having sunsets from the terrace overlooking the Land’s End Lighthouse and the Scilly Isles. All this from visitors’ own 270-degree living room (40ft across) designed in the round with seven sets of sliding patio doors leading out onto a huge decked terrace. This house is in the most stunning location nestling high on the headland at Mayon Cliff surrounded by NT land and the dramatic coastline towards Land’s End. Shark Fin is the ultimate architect-designed house with all the very latest hi-tech eco features. Use of the natural environment has been paramount to harness the earth’s energy. A heat pump with two 80-metre boreholes provides zoned underfloor heating to all rooms, solar panels discreetly incorporated into the rear roof slopes provide energy for hot water and photovoltaic panels for electricity generation. Rain is recycled from the roof for toilet flushing and garden taps. Sennen Cove boasts one of the loveliest stretches of sand in Cornwall and still retains much of the original atmosphere of a fishing village with its own life boat stations. A very popular spot for surfers and for families with children. This property is ideal for friends or families looking to walk or relax and watch the sun set over the ocean. On the beach there is a lovely restaurant, a café and a local village pub ‘The Old Success’. Also two other cafes, tea rooms and local shops are a short walk down the cliff from the property. Visit the nearby Minack Theatre with its open air amphitheatre cut into the cliff looking across the ocean. It is a short air trip from Land’s End airport to the Isles of Scilly.

One step to entrance. Very spacious living room in the round with wood-burning stove, rustic oak floor, concealed mood lighting, seven patio doors to fabulous deck overlooking sea. Spacious kitchen with burr oak and handpainted bespoke units with natural granite worktops, granite breakfast bar, Indian slate floor and dining area looking out to the ocean. Large utility with Belfast sink leading to wet room with toilet, both finished in marble and black Brazilian slate. Double bedroom with 6ft bed, views to Sennen Beach, French doors to patio, en-suite wet room (power shower), toilet, finished in marble/glass. Twin bedroom with TV, French doors to patio/garden. Bathroom with walk-in shower cubicle, toilet, mood lighting and finished in natural stone and marble.

    Had a great holiday at Sharkfin, lovely views from high elevation and everything we needed for our comfort and convenience. For me personally the only drawback due to my short stature was low dining chairs though there were adequate cushions to lift me. Despite being October it was warm enough that we didn't need to use the fire. Is in a lovely location above Sennen Cove although access lane a bit bumpy. Within short distance there are a good fish and chip shop, fantastic seafront restaurant and friendly pub. Only drawback the lack of wi fi availability though maybe not a bad thing on holiday and it is at restaurant and pub. A big plus, two actually, well equipped kitchen as I like to cook and shortish pleasant walk to Lands End.

    The photographs on the website are lovely but do not accurately represent the stunning beauty of this incredible house, settled high above Sennen in the most perfect location. We were blessed with week long sunshine and sparkling sea views from this remarkable 'grand design' building. Everything we needed was available; very well equipped with added luxury, comfort and style - powered by 'green' energy and making the most of ecologically friendly technology. A great location for walking the coastal path and picture postcard seascapes all round. Thanks to the owners for making their dream home available to us to rent. Shark Fin was a big part of making our break so memorable. We left our hearts there when it came time to leave. All our sentiments are echoed in the 'Comments Book', with other families reserving the next break before they leave. A very special place in deed.
