If you are looking for a holiday cottage beside the sea,
for that perfect Cornwall experience with memories to cherish,
you have found the right place.


Sennen Cove, in the far west of Cornwall, is a true delight with its wide open blue skies, white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and rolling surf.

As you drive down the hill into the cove, with the village sat far below you, you know you are visiting somewhere very special, and being just far enough ‘down the road’ modern life has so far passed it by and it is one of those few remaining Cornish coastal locations that retains its natural charm and character.

Whether you are visiting for the first time, or you discovered this dream location years ago, whether you are down for bracing cliff walks, the thrill of surfing, to sit with a pasty on the beach or a pint in the pub watching the sun go down it is no exaggeration that Sennen Cove will never fail to delight you.


Overlooking the lovely old harbour wall and sheltered sandy beach that lies beside it The Little Beach House is a characterful cosy cottage with stunning sea views and is perfect whether you are seeking a summer holiday, midweek break or a weekend away to simply wind down.

The Location

The location could not be any more perfect, the house is right in the heart of the Cove, directly opposite is the harbour beach, always delightfully quiet, whilst just the other side is the main beach that offers a mile or more of pristine white sand stretching all the way to Gwenvor. Sennen also has a gallery, surf shop, surf schools, a chippy, cafe and restaurants and not forgetting the Old Success Inn for a relaxing pint (or two).

The House

Originally built as a fishing cottage in 1906 this wooden clad cottage is full of charm and character and has an amazingly relaxing feel. In the many years we have owned the house we have extensively renovated and restored it uncovering and reclaiming original features long covered such as the wooden floors and wall panelling, The result is a house that is airy, light and utterly soul refreshing.

The Accommodation

The Little Beach House sleeps four, there is a large double room with a king size bed and a smaller room that features single size bunk beds. The main living room is light and airy, ceiling to floor windows across the front give incredible views of the surf rolling over the Cowloe reef, and to the side is a kitchen leading off to a small porch. The bathroom features a large walk in electric shower. The house has high speed fibre broadband and for heating the house has night storage heaters and a log burner… which to light and sit beside on a winters afternoon whilst staring out at a storm smashing against the harbour wall is truly just a slice of heaven.
