Description

A cosy cottage with a sea view, this property is just 250 yards from a sandy beach and within easy reach of many attractions.

A lovely romantic cottage for two set between Bishop Rock and Sevenstones. Entrance into fully fitted kitchen with breakfast area. Living/dining room with sea view. Cloakroom with toilet. First floor: Pretty double bedroom with sea view, en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Radiant fire. Shared garden with furniture.

Electric heaters. Fan heaters. NSH, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Cot. High chair. Freesat TV. Microwave. Washer/dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi. Shared payphone. Shared several acre grounds. Shared barbecue. Wet-suit and surfboard hire available. Storage available for surfboards/windbreakers. Ample parking. No smoking.

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.

    We have stayed at Bishops Rock, Longships and Sevens Seas in very recent years and it's time the cottages were revamped. Longships this time was not very clean and felt the furnishing and kitchen were very tired.

    Beautiful views of sand and sea from the cottage. However, the layout of the upstairs bedroom meant that making your way to the bathroom was quite tricky (narrow gap between bedside table and top of stairs). The communal garden - as far as we could make out - was a small strip in front of the patio door, and there was a tricky step to access it.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; The communal garden is far more substantial, the ‘strip’ mentioned is for Longships only, immediately to the sea-facing side of the property. There is plenty of further grass area to share; the communal parts are on several levels and include BBQ and picnic tables. Overall the grounds are 2.7 acres, some of which is unmaintained except for the paths to the beach below.

    We re booked Longships after a lovely holiday last year, but the owner phoned to say there was something wrong with the electrics, and would we mind staying at Bishops Rock instead, it was next door to Longships so we agreed. It had a wood/coal burner in the living room and the information was that if we wanted more we would have to buy it. I was unhappy with that, we couldn't seem to warm up at all. There were old electric heaters on the walls upstairs which didn't warm the rooms up. We were freezing and left a day early because of this. I contacted the owner and explained and stressed how cold we were there, and asked him if he ever stayed there. There was also damp on a couple of walls, and EVERYTHING had to be washed when we got home because of the overpowering smell of smoke. So no, we wouldn't go back in the winter, the view is amazing.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; When the power cut occurred it prevented us from cleaning and heating Longships but we felt the offer to upgrade to Bishop Rock cottage next door, which has the same view and a multi-fuel stove, would be welcome, especially in mid-winter. It seems you were unable to manage the stove which when used correctly gives off a good amount of heat and warms the room up nicely. This review and rating therefore applies to a different property (ref. GRL) and is in stark contrast to our other reviews.

    The bed was extremely uncomfortable. The mattress is well past its best and the 2 inch foam topper did nothing to disguise the fact that the mattress dips and sags. I have already contacted the owner of the cottage to make him aware of this fact.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We have replaced the mattress, sorry that you found it uncomfortable.

    Only issue was not enough hot water for a full bath and the plugs didn't function properly in the bath or bathroom sink

    I just love this place, if I could I would move here. The view is to die for and it's so quiet. So cozy and clean with everything you need. Exactly the answer if you want a break away from everything. Top tip is to call at Penzance and go to Sainsbury, Tesco etc for all your food first
