  • “Sitting high above Sennen beach and Aire Point Wellfield cottage is perfectly placed to explore the majestic beauty of the area.”

    The cottage is comfortable and well equipped with everything you need. It's clean and the panel heaters are efficient and sufficient. Sennen Cove is a 5 minute drive or a 30 minute walk away - we walked to enjoy the stunning clifftop views. We hope to return annually.

The property

No need to use the car when staying at this cheerful cottage just above the stunning bay at Sennen Cove.

Experience the real Cornish life at this charming detached granite bungalow set just above the beaches in a coastal hamlet just ten minutes walk from the village and harbour at Sennen Cove. Sennen, a popular seaside village, is active all year round offering super cafes, pubs, restaurants, shops and galleries!

The little cottage, once part of a working farm, is set in a perfect location for keen walkers and beachgoers where there is easy access to explore the coastal paths down to the white sand beach at Sennen Cove as well as the aptly named Whitesand Bay.

Gwenver beach, also nearby, is great for surfing and permits dog walking.

For the more adventurous there are super cliff walks to Cape Cornwall or even Lands End.

Days out can be plenty: a short drive away is colourful market town of Penzance and the famous island of St Michael's Mount, or to the north, the quaint artist's paradise of St. Ives.

The unique and spectacular Minack Theatre, carved into the cliff, is only four miles away with open air amateur and professional performances through the summer months.

Wellfield Cottage is loved by children with its large grass areas ideal for playing, picnicking and flying kites.

Furnished with care and with recently renewed bathroom and sunny aspect it exudes a very warm welcome.

The dining area is particularly pleasant for gazing at the views across the countryside to the sea.

The feeling is one of being part of a small Cornish community when visiting this charming hamlet, with the advantages of the privacy, peace and quiet provided by Wellfield Cottage.

Access is good and there is ample parking.

About the location


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.

Open fire is being taken out and so will not be available after 2nd November 2019. The property has modern electric panel heaters.
