With its mile of fine white sand and azure sea, the beautiful beach at Sennen Cove offers safe bathing and a lifeguard service during the summer. It is one of Cornwall's premier visitor destinations with a first class beachside restaurant, a charming harbour with a small fleet of fishing boats, art galleries selling work by local artists, a traditional pub, cafe, fish and chip shop and a recognised surf school offering tuition and equipment hire. There are beaches in abundance at St Ives and the exotic paradise of Trewidden Gardens, the island topped castle of St Michael's Mount and The Minack, Cornwall's famous open-air cliff-top theatre (offering productions for both adults and children) are all less than a 30 minute drive and highly recommended, family friendly places to visit during your stay.

About the location

PENZANCE

St Ives 8 miles.

One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
