Amble back from the surfy beach at Sennen Cove to this wildly romantic coastal bolthole. Fishing Buoy is peacefully tucked away, amid a cluster of granite barn conversions bounded to one side by unspoilt farmland yet only a ten minute walk down a steep footpath to the seashore. This once humble farm building has been imaginatively transformed with plenty of individuality, authentic character and a cosy wood burner to charm you.
With its huge expanse of white sand and azure sea, Sennen Cove is a singularly special place and the perfect destination for a beach holiday. The rolling Atlantic surf provides some of the best surfing conditions in the UK and there is a lifeguard service operating during the summer and a recognised surf school offering tuition and equipment hire. Explore the charming harbour with its colour fishing fleet and the art galleries selling work by local artists. Indulge at the beachside restaurant, fish and chip shop or ice cream parlour depending on what strikes your fancy. Walkers will love the exhilarating journey along the coast path on soaring cliffs to iconic Land's End. Continue a little farther to discover Porthcurno and The Minack Theatre, Cornwall's famous open-air cliff-top theatre showing performances for all ages. Penzance, Mousehole and Marazion are less than a 20 minute drive as too is St Ives which is best discovered via the coast road, through rugged moorland dotted with old mining ruins.
Fishing Buoy is a wonderful getaway for couples and families with a coastal inspired interior and a sheltered garden for barbecues and idle time (plus secure storage for surfboards and bikes). You enter via external steps to the first floor and into a comfortable sitting dining room with tall beamed ceilings and exposed granite walls. An open ladder staircase leads from the sitting dining room to the double bedroom on a mezzanine floor set into the eaves (mind your head on the low ceiling). Leading from the sitting dining room is an attractive twin bedroom suited to both adults and children and a modern kitchen and shower room. If you do not fancy cooking, there is an excellent foodie pub within a 5 minute walk.

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.
