    “In general the stay was fine bar general cleaning by, I presume, the contractors and the ongoing works at No 1 Harbour Mews.”


    On arrival @ advised 4pm, we had travelled earlier that day, the cleaning team were not close to completion. Although apologetic on entering it was clear the job had been rushed - or at least I hope it had otherwise there's a wider problem. Kitchen sink had food debris, a shower in the bedroom had significant amount of hair in the plug. The bathroom floor in the 1st floor bathroom and 'en-suite' needed to be cleaned before we used; there was no foot mat in the downstairs bathroom. The complimentaries, I would do away with as the cleaning kit is practically no use whilst Cheese (yes Cheese) scones from Sainsbury's with a 1 day date on them don't go that well with Jam and Clotted Cream As we arrived we were also unable to park as the allocated outside space was taken up by building contractors, an issue that occurred several times during the week whilst other work during the period necessitated us having to request the guys moved their plant machinery. Obviously on completion this will not be of any concern - would have been nice though if they had taken packaging away as opposed to stockpiling against the letter box! The guys themselves were accommodating. One is easily remedied, the other will naturally stop and overall, as the score suggests, we had a good holiday - it is the little things

The property

Nestled close to the beach and lifeboat station in the delightful fishing village of Sennen Cove, Cornwall is Pilchard Cottage, a superb four-storey house ideal for a family holiday on the Cornish coast.

Offering magnificent sea views and well-appointed interiors, this comfortable and spacious four-storey house is perfectly suited to families and friends, seeking coastal escapades.

Sennen Cove sits at the centre of Whitesand Bay which, with its mile-long expanse of sand and sea, is the perfect location for that beach holiday or for riding the surf!

Boasting a master bedroom with a private terrace and a marvellous games room, this dwelling is ideal for staying in or venturing out to explore Cornwall's finest attractions.

As you step into the property, there is a spacious hallway with plenty of room for outdoor wear, and a handy ground-floor shower room for you to rinse off after a sandy day at the beach.

Keep children and teens entertained on wet weather days in the games room which has a screen for the Wii games console, table football and a good selection of books and board games.

Arranged on the second floor, the open plan living room boasts far-reaching coastal views over Sennen Cove and a wood burner for cosy winter breaks plus, after a sociable meal around the substantial dining table, you can sit and watch the sun go down out to sea.

In the warmer months, fling open the french doors and enjoy morning coffee on the seaward-facing balcony which also gives a ringside seat when either the Sennen in-shore or Tamar class lifeboats launch.

The well-equipped kitchen leads to the south-facing rear patio with its garden furniture and a chance to sit out and admire the view and, during the warmer months, enjoy breakfast on the terrace and lunch on the enclosed rear patio.

Retire to one of three bedrooms, all equipped with comfortable mattresses and crisp cotton bed linens.

There is a spacious king-size bedroom on the first floor with an en-suite shower room and french doors to the large private terrace with garden furniture and stunning sea views.

The first-floor twin bedroom is furnished with zip and link beds which can be presented as a king size bed on request.

The first floor also has a family bathroom.

There is a double bedroom with an open plan WC on the top floor.

The attached garage contains the washing machine, and guests are welcome to use the beach paraphernalia stored there.

All that Sennen Cove has to offer, including the popular Old Success Inn, two cafes, fish and chip shop, general store and the iconic Round House art gallery, are within a short stroll.

There is no better place to learn to surf than at one of the two surf schools, one of which is located right on the beach.

Hike from the doorstep along the magnificent Southwest coast path and discover towering clifftops and golden sandy beaches.

Explore landmark attractions close by at Cape Cornwall, St. Michaels Mount, the spectacular Minack Theatre and Land’s End.
