The property

Just a short walk from beautiful Sennen Cove and with ocean views from every room, this superb barn conversion is a real pleaser. Snuggled in the corner of a pretty courtyard with a private raised terrace overlooking the sea, Kerensa ha-Kres sits in the village of Sennen on the far west Cornish coastline and is within a five minute drive of stunning Lands End.

With windows capturing a vision of sea from the open-plan sitting room and both bedrooms, the accommodation is a fusion of character and modern charm with wooden floors and aqua coastal-vibe sofa and snuggle seat to get comfy after a day in the sunshine. The white gloss kitchen and ocean-coloured inspired bathroom add to the very charismatic interior - a home from home close to the sea perfect for families, friends and couples. Enjoy a picnic on the private, elevated patio amidst the almost uninterrupted country and ocean vista, with garden table and chairs for dining under the sun or stars. If you opt not to cook, the fish and chip shop and good food inn are all within a few minutes walk, plus a village store for provisions. There's outdoor space for surf gear and buckets and spades, or bring cycles to explore this magical most westerly tip of Cornwall.

The Lands End Peninsula boasts dramatic land and seascapes. The coastal path is ideal for discovering the rugged coastline and beautiful coves and beaches. Sennen Cove has a popular one mile stretch of sandy beach and Whitesands Beach is a favourite with the surfers, with terrace restaurant looking out across the Atlantic, a pub for refreshment and a surf shop for the water adventurous. Best at low tide, Gwenver Beach offers a surf school and board hire. Sennen fishing village has a little harbour with the catch of the day on offer and a working lifeboat station. Nearby, the beach at Porthcurno is very beautiful and the Minack theatre is a striking setting with seats carved from the cliff face against the everchanging backdrop of sea and sky.

About the location

SENNEN

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.
