  • “Parking was the only downside of the property and a parking pass or reserved space would have been better, considering we were there in October both car parks were very busy.”

The property

A stone built and timber clad former pump house dating back to the 1800's, in days gone by supplying water to nearby properties is in an idyllic location above Sennen Cove.

Spectacular sea views which reach as far as the Isles of Scilly on a clear day.

A romantic bolt-hole for two.

On entering the property the stunning views from both the kitchen and the open plan living space with woodburner and dining area are simply breathtaking.

The well equipped kitchen leads off from here.

Stairs lead down to a double bedroom and en suite shower room.

There is a small graveled area outside the French doors on the lower level and a bench seat at the top of the granite steps at the entrance for admiring the view or slipping off wetsuits.

The cove on your doorstep for surfing or swimming or a short stroll down onto the in the evening for fish and chips or less than a 10 minute walk gives a choice of several local restaurants.

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.
