  • “We had the best week at Potters by the Sea in Sennen.”


    The apartment is charming and beautifully decorated with everything you could need for a self catering break. It’s also spotlessly clean.we loved the beachy artwork . It’s set in a pretty development with a shared garden in Mayon . The owners Michelle and Sue are super friendly and phoned on the arrival day to make sure we had their phone numbers in case we had any problems and there was a nice cream tea waiting for us . They love Potters as much as we do . It’s the most beautiful place for a holiday with footpaths to Lands End and Sennen beach just across the road . The only problem is that a week isn’t enough time to stay at Potters so we are booking two weeks for next year. Thank you Michelle and Sue for a wonderful holiday .

The property

Nestled in the coastal village of Sennen, in the Cornish countryside, is this superb semi-detached granite barn conversion set in a courtyard and surrounded by other properties.

Accessed via a set of external steps, you enter into an open-plan living space, where you can look forward to curling up with your partner and spending the evening enjoying films or catching up with your favourite shows.

Gather at the dining area to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal over a well-deserved glass of wine, whilst the contemporary fitted kitchen provides everything you could need to rustle up some delicious meals.

The property has a double bedroom with a luxurious king-sized bed, delightful furniture for storage purposes and is, also where you can get some much needed rest for the days ahead, whilst the family bathroom provides a large walk-in shower.

Sennen Cove and Whitsand Bay are within walking distance along a coastal pathway, with stunning views across the bay.

Nearby is the popular, but secluded surfing beach, Gwynver which is dog friendly all year round.

Six miles East is the spectacular beach of Porthcurno with luminous white sand that is made from tiny shell fragments which nestles below the famous open-air Minack Theatre.

Or maybe you want to go dolphin watching at Cape Cornwall where seals, basking sharks and even the occasional whale have been spotted!

The Heritage Coast also offers for a plethora of countryside attractions; including ample walking and cycling opportunities on the South West Coast Path, and Land's End Landmark with its stunning coastal views.

Sennen Cove Beach is idyllic and a place where you can spend your afternoons bathing in the sun, or taking a long and relaxing swim in the shallow waters.

Or perhaps you want to get involved with Cornwall's favourite sport of surfing, whether you're an amateur or a professional, there will be something to suit your needs.

Further afield is the superb seaside town of Penzance, where you can explore all its traditional Cornish pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening, or a selection of its shops and supermarkets for picking up any last-minute essentials.

Potters by the Sea is an excellent base for exploring many of Cornwall's finest sites including the pretty Cornish village of Mousehole, Geevor Tin Mine, Telegraph Museum Porthcurno, Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, Penlee House or hop on the local open-top bus and admire the scenery all the way to St.Ives and back!

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.
