  • Mr Easterbrook

    “Kitticarn is a privilege to visit-spectacular location, stunning views & easy access to Gwynver beach (to be first there, last to leave) & the south west Cornwall corner.”

    Only negative is the main double bed mattress &/or bed needs replacing-it’s convex! And maybe a summer duvet of 3 tog maximum!

The property

Sennen Cove 2 miles Kitticarn is located on the cliff top above the secluded Gwenver Beach and adjoining Sennen Cove beach which are approximately 8 miles from Penzance.

This is the ideal location to completely get away from it all and experience the wild Cornish coastline and countryside at their finest. At dawn the most stunning, far reaching views stretch all the way to the Isles of Scilly on a clear day.

At dusk picturesque sun sets often paint the sky a myriad of colors and dance across the ocean.

The glorious milky way is not dampened by any light pollution and the occasional lights flickering in the distance from passing ships add yet further intrigue.

The moment you drive down the quiet lane leading to Kitticarn you will realise that your holiday has started.

Driving up the grassy shared access (with neighbour) to Kitticarn please park in front of Kitticarn.

Your eyes will be drawn to the amazing views before entering into the cosy open plan living area with kitchen, seating and dining area.

There are two bedrooms (a double and a bunk room - only suitable for children) and a compact shower room.

Directly outside is a tiered paved / graveled area with picnic bench.

This leads onto a large undulating natural grassed area which is perfect to relax on, gaze at the ocean and breathe in the fresh sea air.

Stepping onto the coastal path you can enjoy amazing cliff walks in both directions right from the door.

Head South towards Land's End which is just under 3 miles away, or North towards Cape Cornwall where seals are often seen basking on the rocks below.

Gwenver Beach is approximately a 20 minutes walk accessed from the top of the cliff down steep steps.

It is known for its surf and blue water and as one of the most secluded and quiet beaches in the area, and can be quite a sun trap on a warm day.

Adjoining is the easily accessible and popular beach of Sennen Cove offering one of the finest stretches of sand in Cornwall.

Ideal for families with younger children and those not wishing to attempt the steps of Gwenver Beach.

There are car parks directly behind the beach and at the top of the cliff.

Sennen is a fishing village and harbor that still retains much of the atmosphere of times gone by.

Shops, cafe and pub can be found here including the superb Ben Tunnicliffe Restaurant at Surf Beach Bar where fish caught in Sennen Cove appears on the menu.

Kitticarn provides a cosy base from which to enjoy the great outdoors and local attractions.
