    “The Lookout is in an amazing position with stunning views across the bay to Sennen.”

    The kitchen is well equipped and the shower works really well. However, the mattress is extremely squashy and uncomfortable - you can feel the springs! I notice a couple of other reviews mention this so we were not alone in thinking this. Also, the balcony furniture is heavily rusted and needs replacement. You wouldn’t want to sit on it and get rust marks on your clothes. We’d urge the owners to replace both these. We’d love to come back but will only do so if the mattress is ...

The property

This first floor apartment beautifully overlooks Porth Sennan on the Penwith Heritage Coast.

With many of South Cornwall's fine features close at hand, use The Lookout as a romantic base for a break with your other half.

Enter this bright and airy apartment; the sitting room is a wonderful spot to let your hair down, boasting comfortable seating and the choice of watching your favourite shows on the TV or the crashing waves on the beach below.

The fresh, light kitchen is compact yet well-equipped so you can serve up those tasty home-cooked meals throughout your stay.

Get your rest in the splendid double bedroom which is decorated in soothing, neutral colours to provide a peaceful spot.

Enjoy the cool sea breeze from the comfort of your very own balcony, a fine spot to sit with a glass of wine and admire the far-reaching vistas.

The village of Sennen is a short journey away, this charming place provides a tranquil holiday location whilst offering a pub and a modest choice of shops.

The world-renowned Land's End comes nearby and is most certainly worth a look.

From here, you can also pay a visit to some incredible coastal spots including St Just and Penzance both within easy touring distance.

A fabulously located cottage, perfect for a couple's getaway.

Gwenver Beach Collection

Sennen Cove 1.7 miles. Perfect for beach and coastal holidays and short breaks, these properties are set in a stunning location with private access to Gwenver beach close to Sennen Cove, 5 miles from Lands’ End and 9 miles from the ancient market town of Penzance. As soon as you arrive down the private drive you feel immediately relaxed with amazing sea views all the way. The properties are well-equipped and two have a balcony where you can sit out with your morning cup of tea and enjoy your surroundings. The nearby beach is sandy and around 150 yards long and with some of the best surfing conditions in Cornwall it is surprising that it never gets too crowded. For those who want to relax and watch the surfing action the beach is a real suntrap located at the base of steep granite cliffs. With superb coastal walks in either direction right from the door walkers will also be in their element here. Adjoining is Sennen Cove with Whitesands beach, one of the cleanest in Europe and named in the top 20 secret beaches in the British Isles. Sennen Cove still retains much of the atmosphere of an old fishing village, with a small number of local fishing boats plying their trade from the harbour. With Sennen having a great pub, a top class restaurant, a café, fish and chip shop as well as a village shop you will have all the ingredients for a great holiday whatever time of year.

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.
