A large detached house in the village of Sennen, Myrtle Cottage was once a tea room and offers spacious accommodation within walking distance of the village amenities and the magnificent sandy beach.

Arranged over three levels, entry is on the ground floor leading into a spacious sitting room/diner with wood burning stove and a beautiful bay window capturing magnificent 180 degree sea views.

A large separate kitchen offers plenty of space for meal preparation and there is a useful utility room with shower and WC.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor offering flexible sleeping for a maximum of 6 people.

The master king-size double benefiting from an en-suite shower room.

The remaining bedrooms, two with vanity sinks share a family shower room.

On the lower ground floor there is a useful store room for wet suits and bicycles.

There are two seaward facing terraces, one fully enclosed, a perfect spot for soaking up the atmosphere and watching the waves as they roll in from the Atlantic.

There is parking for a small car provided with nearby paid for car parks where weekly tickets are available.

The working fishing village of Sennen retains plenty of charm and atmosphere, attracting all ages to its white sands and quaint harbour.

The beach is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the summer months and is a well known surfing and watersports destination with tuition available on the beach.

All you need can be found in the village, including two village pubs, a fabulous beach café and a number of other restaurants.

Shops and supermarkets can be found in nearby Penzance a 15 minute journey by car.

There are plenty of places to visit in the far west of Cornwall, namely The Minack Theatre and Land's End, both equally worth visiting on days out.

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.
