The property

This coastal bolthole for couples has jaw-dropping 180 degree views over Sennen Cove and is minutes on foot from the long stretch of sandy beach and the charming harbour. This is a magical setting with immense letting appeal. Set into the rugged hillside and facing seaward, guests will admire the views over Whitesands Bay to Cape Cornwall on the horizon and as far as the Isles of Scilly on clear days. Access to this ground floor apartment is gained via steep steps from the main car park. There is no disabled access and the climb is not for the faint hearted but the ascending views are well worth the effort. Ample for two, the accommodation includes an open plan living room with a fitted kitchen, a double bedroom with a super king size bed (zip and link to twin on request), a walk in shower that is large enough for two and a separate WC. All rooms have sea views (even the loo)! Sit in the bay window in the open plan living room and gaze out to sea. Watch the fishing boats come and go. Spot sea birds, seals and dolphins. Marvel at big skies and golden sunsets, this modern apartment is sublime at any time of year. Sennen is a traditional fishing village with a pub, cafe, beachside restaurant, fish n’ chip shop, art gallery, ice cream parlour and convenience store but Whitsands Bay beach is the main attraction. Book a surf lesson, swim off the white sands or hire a boat and explore the coast from the water. It is a great escape for long walks and dogs are welcome too! Access onto the south west coast path is within moments. Head along soaring cliff tops to Land’s End, Porthcurno and The Minack, Cornwall's famous open-air cliff-top theatre. Buzzing St Ives, St Just and Penzance with more galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs are within a short drive.
