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.

    What a fantastic place, certainly lived up to our expectations. Half the week we spent with friends and the other half on our own. So spacious never felt crowded. Waking up to the amazing sea views was fantastic. So many great walks on your doorstop and great place to relax. We will definitely be back.

    Anyone that stays at Shark Fin, including us, will confirm the setting and house are fantastic - a view that will be difficult to match. However, beyond that beautiful setting is the other most important aspect... comfort. The beds were like sleeping on concrete, with pillows that were like blocks of foam. The lounge sofas were awful and you couldn't sit on them for longer than half hour before you were desperately trying to 'plump up' the cushions to get more comfort. Almost every appliance had instructions on what you mustn't do, mustn't touch, mustn't open... even when we lifted the barbecue lid we found an instruction inside on what we mustn't do with the ashes or the barbecue. It made us feel as though we were incompetent or worse still, children, when in actual fact the cost of the rental meant it is probably only within the price range of professional individuals on good salaries or groups of families. Finally, we would have liked some sunbeds to recliners in the garden.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We agree with your conclusion that the setting and house are a fantastic position and the view is impossible to match. We cannot agree with the other comments you make and this is confirmed by 9 out of the last 14 reviews giving us 10 out of 10. Beds are always a matter of preference and these are top quality Hypnos contract beds. The two lounge sofas are top quality from Sitting Rooms "Collins & Hayes" a reputable UK manufacturer from a bespoke retailer in Totnes. Most people have commented on how comfortable they are. As to the instructions on appliances, these are to assist as some guests are not familiar with induction hobs and American fridge / freezers with ice and filtered water facilities. The BBQ instructions are purely for safety and cleaning purposes. Most people found the instructions useful.

    Although obviously at the high end of pricing we are always happy to pay for quality
