  • "There is far too much clutter in drawers."

    Far too many plates and old cutlery. No potato peeler. Clear out some of the junk and leave the best pieces and Vacuum cleaner cable repaired with sticky tape. A definite health and safety issue. Television can only pick up bbc. In the plus side we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. The retro look was charming. The water heater super efficient. It was lovely to have biscuits milk and tea available in arrival. Potential customers should be warned that the cottage is not suitable for the less agile because of the steep stairs and deep drop into the cottage.

  • "We really loved staying there."

    It’s what it is, an old cottage by the sea. I think it’s fine the way it is. To modernise it would be a pity. I am glad it had a shower as well as a bath. An ideal location. Can’t fault it really. Thank you for a lovely place to stay with my grandchildren Mary Edwards

  • "Lewcott is a traditional thatched cottage in the heart of Sennen Cove with an old style charm and decor."

    We loved its quirky ambiance and it had everything we needed, plenty of books, board games and a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are a decent size with comfy beds and being up in the eaves of the thatch are quiet and cosy. Outside there’s a large courtyard and to the side a little garden that was perfect for catching the evening sun and watching the sunset. Very easy access to the cafe, shop, pub, beach and coast path. Added bonus of a parking space for a small car. Perfect holiday base and it reminded me of holiday lets from my childhood!

  • "Quirky and quaint cottage."

    Fantastic views. Ideally located. Fascinating history. Well equipped. Would recommend with one reservation - access may be difficult for those with mobility problems as small front door with big step down.

  • "A cosy and old-fashioned cottage with some eccentric features but very well equipped, in the centre of this attractive village but very private and peaceful, with the Coastal Path passing the door and a view across the sea to Cape Cornwall - highly recommended."

The property

Perched right behind the harbour in the coastal village of Sennen Cove in Cornwall is this charming two-bedroomed 17th century Grade II listed character cottage, Lewcott.

Enjoying a fantastic location, just moments from the sea, offering impressive views and an interior with many original features throughout, including exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace, Lewcott is a great place for couples or families with the South West Coastal Path a few steps away, surfing, kayaking and paddle boarding nearby and a fabulous sandy beach.

Inside, the cosy sitting room has Wi-Fi and a smart TV and glorious views in three directions and there is nothing between you and the breathtaking sea views as you sit at the table in the kitchen/diner.

The kitchen is very well equipped with a double electric oven, fridge freezer, washing machine and microwave.

The pretty garden is a sun trap and has benches and table and chairs for outdoor dining.

The two comfortable bedrooms are set in the roof and offer plenty of storage space and there are several games to keep guests occupied if the weather turns dull.

Please mind your head as you go upstairs!

Discover the beautiful village of Sennen Cove a short walk from Lewcott, it is home to a lovely old pub, a restaurant, fish and chip shop, art gallery and a general store where you can pick up all your essentials as well as food wine, newspapers and souvenirs for you loved ones.

Keen walkers can explore the historic Mayon Cliff and the nearby shipwreck before marvelling at the profusion of birds on wildlife on the way to Land's End where you can have your photo taken next to the iconic signpost!

Take an open-top bus or a short drive to the bustling Penzance to visit the cinema, theatre, Penlee House Gallery and Museum or Trewidden Garden.

You can also buy fresh fish, crabs and lobsters straight from the sea in Newlyn and walk or sail (dependent on the tides) to the famous St Michael's Mount from Marazion.

The quaint town of St Ives, home to the Tate Gallery is just a short drive away; those looking to venture further afield can sail to the Scilly Isles from Penzance or Fly from Land's End Airport.
