No need to use the car when staying at this cheerful cottage just above the stunning bay at Sennen Cove. Experience the real Cornish life at this charming detached granite bungalow set just above the
beaches in a coastal hamlet just ten minutes walk from the village and harbour at Sennen Cove.
Sennen, a popular seaside village, is active all year round offering super cafes, pubs, restaurants,
shops and galleries! The little cottage, once part of a working farm, is set in a perfect location for
keen walkers and beachgoers where there is easy access to explore the coastal paths down to the
white sand beach at Sennen Cove as well as the aptly named Whitesand Bay. Gwenver beach, also
nearby, is great for surfing and permits dog walking. For the more adventurous there are super
cliff walks to Cape Cornwall or even Lands End.
Days out can be plenty: a short drive away is
colourful market town of Penzance and the famous island of St Michael's Mount, or to the north,
the quaint artist's paradise of St. Ives. The unique and spectacular Minack Theatre, carved into
the cliff, is only four miles away with open air amateur and professional performances through
the summer months. Wellfield Cottage is loved by children with its large grass areas ideal for
playing, picnicking and flying kites. Furnished with care and with recently renewed bathroom and
sunny aspect it exudes a very warm welcome. The dining area is particularly pleasant for gazing
at the views across the countryside to the sea. The feeling is one of being part of a small Cornish
community when visiting this charming hamlet, with the advantages of the privacy, peace and
quiet provided by Wellfield Cottage. Access is good and there is ample parking.

About the location
Land’s End 1 mile ; St Just 5 miles ; Penzance 9 miles
The most westerly village in mainland Britain, Sennen has a lovely mile-long beach of pure white sand and is a very popular holiday destination. With excellent surfing conditions, the village has its own surf school – overlooked by a super-cool beach bar/restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows which make the most of the wonderful views. Once a hub of smuggling activity, Sennen still retains many secret passages – one of which is said to lead to the covered well in the Old Success Inn. Largely unchanged over time, this lovely village has a timeless appeal and is home to a gallery, a medieval church, an Iron Age fort and a small selection of shops where you can buy beachware, gifts and souvenirs, and a range of groceries. There is also a weekly Farmers’ Market in the village Community Centre each Tuesday morning. During the summer, the beach bar becomes a hub of activity and entertainment, with live music, weekly barbecues and popular surfing competitions.
