    “Good location to explore the nearby coastal walks and beaches”

    My husband and I booked this cottage almost a year to the date if arriving having been cancelled due to lockdowns. Being key workers and not having had a holiday for a year we were very much looking forward to a chilled out week and peace and quiet of the small village. 6 days before arriving we received a call from the cottage company overseeing the property to be told that there were building works going on next door Monday to Friday. You can imagine our disappointment to be told this at such short notice On arriving at the property, the builders were building a new house with angle grinder and cement mixer going. We settled into the cottage- lovely inside and a lot bigger than we expected. Nice to have the small lounge with log burner for the evenings- perfect for us as a couple as only a 2 seater sofa. We tried to get onto the internet and WiFi to no avail and reported it. Unfortunately this could not be sorted for the whole week we were there. Kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal- we usually eat out but due to restrictions weren’t able to do this only outside eating and evenings very chilly. We slept in the master bedroom upstairs for one evening but found it too light as only slatted blinds and no black out curtains- bed very comfortable and lots of storage. Next night we slept in the downstairs bedroom off the conservatory much better and quieter not being woken by building works. Again lots of cupboard space and comfortable bed. Just a few things to note which we reported- very sensitive smoke detectors in kitchen and upstairs- goes off every time oven is opened and using the toaster- reported this and suggestion to change to head sensitive alarms. Lovely bath upstairs but very low water pressure and takes an age to run. The shower in the downstairs bathroom very small- we found it a struggle to wash hair etc without being wedged in and we are both average build. The cottage is on the main road and quite noisy when sitting in the garden weekend when building works not going on. The building works have a long way to go next door before completion. Nice touch on arrival with a welcome tray of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, scones, cream and jam plus a bunch of flowers I am sure once works are completed next door that you will have a very relaxing holiday- something we planned on having but sadly not meant to be. We did find the cottage very comfortable and a great location to explore coves, bays and coastal walks

The property

Forge Cottage is delectably charismatic, deceptively spacious and desirably positioned within a half hour walk of Sennen Cove at Lands End.

This gorgeous granite cottage combines a fusion of iconic Cornish character and contemporary flair, and boasts a big interior with beams, distant sea views and sits a stones throw from a fabulous foodie pub. Within a short walk from the cottage, Sennen Cove offers a popular stretch of sand and ocean for swimming and bathing, ideal for paddling and picnics.

The arc of sand at Whitesands Beach faces the ocean so the water is good for surfers with a seasonal lifeguard service.

There's a pub, café and surfside restaurant for refreshment, and the sunsets spied here are wonderful.

At the western end of the beach, the dinky harbour retains a timeless quality and the catch of the day can be bought from the small fleet of fishing boats that trade from the quay.

The mile long stretch of sand at Sennen Beach reaches to Gwenver Beach, a much favoured spot with families.

This magical unspoilt corner of Cornwall boasts dramatic and rugged seascapes within easy reach; a real rambler's paradise along the coast path and cliff tops with panoramic views over the Atlantic.

The peninsula is a unique destination promising beautiful scenery, awesome 200 foot granite cliff drops and sandy beaches including stunning Porthcurno.

The Minack Theatre is a must-see attraction with seats and stage carved from the cliff face set against the ocean backdrop. Forge Cottage makes a superb homestay for families, friends and couples, with legroom for all to relax and find their own space.

There are two sitting rooms; a cosy nook with a wood burner for fireside snugness, and a bright and modern glass ceilinged haven for all to gather.

Socialise around the dining table and feast well from kitchen creativity.

The bedrooms guarantee distant sea views or country vistas and the enclosed, private garden is a proper suntrap.

Enjoy lazy breakfasts, pasty lunches, four o'clocker cream teas and alfresco evening tipples.

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.

Note: No cot or highchair
NOTE: The property is over two floors and there are also a number steps inside the property to access certain rooms including 5 slate steps to ground floor bedroom.
