In the south west tip of Cornwall, Sennen is located in a stunning location and has some of the loveliest stretches of sandy beach in the county.
The quaint coastal resort of Sennen is the perfect location for lovers of the great outdoors. As you approach the village it''s not long before you spot the long, Blue Flag Award-winning sandy beach and huge blue waves that head towards the shore, so it''s no wonder that Whitesand Bay is one of Cornwall’s surfing hotspots.
On dry land you''ll find a range of cafés, restaurants, galleries and shops along the seafront, as well as the village''s small harbour which is home to the RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of fishing boats, while lobster pots testify to the continuation of the local fishing industry.
A short walk from Sennen cottages is the 17th Century fisherman''s inn, “The Old Success”, boasting the best views across the bay, and if you’re lucky dolphins can often been seen frolicking in the water close to the coast.
During your stay look around the Round House and Capstan gallery, this exhibits arts and crafts from local artists, or head for the Pedn-men-du headland that shelters the cover and is a popular haunt for climbers. With the coastal footpaths to Land''s End to the south and Cape Cornwall providing classic Cornish cliff views, there is something for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts of all tastes and abilities.
For accommodation see Sennen holiday cottages, which provide the perfect base in this friendly coastal town.
