  • "An absolutely A1 experience from start to finish."

    This is a hidden gem and we are so glad we booked it! Our first impressions when we opened the door to the property met every expectation - everything was spotlessly clean, and cleverly designed. The warm floors were a lovely welcome every time we came back, and the electric Velux window allowed us the best ventilation at night, we enjoyed the lapping of the waves and fresh sea air and slept like babies! Sennen Cove was also a real surprise, pulling us down to the beach each day. We had a hiccup on departure, we forgot some stuff!!! But even this wasn't an issue and the same A1 5* experience continued, and our parcel turned up at home with everything that we thought was lost forever. So all in all, 100% recommend to anyone reading our review, and whilst we wish the owner all the success, we hope a week or two will remain so we can come back another time!!! Thank you so much for a wonderful week away and being attentive right to the end, All the best Darren & Kath

  • "We stayed here last July, loved it but there were a few issues back then."

    A lack of cutlery and crockery and were pleased to see it is now much more stocked and the Kitchen Bi-fold was broken, it was much better being able to open it this year. We love this place, very high end spec with all the comforts. We will be booking again, yes it is expensive but worth it. A wonderful position too. The cleaners were great, it must be said. We had a 2 week stay and they arranged with us to change the Towels and Linen after 1 week, they also cleaned and swept through, which we weren't expecting to be done. A big improvement on last year, when we were asked to strip the Bed ourselves and leave the linen and Towels outside. A new Bag was then left and we then had to remake the bed ourselves, as they said it's not their practice to enter on a 2 week stay. These new ladies were shocked when I offered to do the Bed! We were offered 2 time slots for our convenience, very friendly and helpful.

    The beach store was absolutely perfect views from the sea in every room felt like you was on the beach. Everything exactly what it says on the booking and more. Perfect place to stay, we will definitely go back. As always booking with sykes is easy and you get everything that is advertised on the booking site, everything was perfect couldn't get any better. Amazing.

  • "Our second visit; we love this place so (so so) much."

    We still love it in winter, but this time a few things were broken that weren’t an issue on our first visit… detailed below: Four things: wine cooler was completely broken, fridge was temperamental (freezer defrosted despite fridge being on high) shower backed up (just needs drain-o), under-floor heating was very hard to set up in the main room. Managed eventually but I think the previous guests had put it to ‘holiday’, ie off for a long time… We love this gorgeous property (the Sonos is just excellent, as is the log-burner and of course the amazing location) and we’ll still return because we can swim, surf, paint, and go on early beach walks so easily. Thank you for reading!

  • "The bed was super comfy."

    I absolutely loved the views from all windows. The location is great - it's busy with lots of people walking / driving past on their way to the beach but it's a nice buzz. Soundproofing in the house is v good. Facilities are very good and the house was very clean. It was a lovely place for a holiday house. A welcome cream tea and a bottle of prosecco was so kind. Thank you.

  • "This is a most Beautiful place to stay."

    Reserved parking immediately out front and views to die for. Lovely welcome package. Hand wash, hand cream etc. Very impressed indeed. It's a shame that the Bifold door in the kitchen, and the Kitchen window are both broken. Only the door can be used. I had to phone about this as a note hadn't been left, and was told they were aware but it can't be repaired until after the Summer bookings. However, it didn't spoil our stay, you have the Bi-folds in the Living Room to open so plenty of fresh Air. No small windows to leave open overnight, so can get a bit stuffy, only the Velux in the Bathroom, which shuts automatically if Rain is detected. Also, I did see other comments on the lack of crockery and that hasn't changed much. Set of 4 for Dinner service and only set of 4 for cutlery? Does have enough pans. Not a major issue but the spec of this property is so high, then they are stingy on that? Still, a wonderful stay was had and we shall return!

  • "For a self catering property this was very poorly equipped."

    We were left with a bottle of sparkling wine, which was appreciated but there was only one champagne flute. There was a small selection of glasses which were very poor indeed. There was no chopping board other than for bread, which was the the top of the bread bin. There was no bread knife. There was no cheese knife.The mugs we mismatched and of poor quality. One of the plates had a large chip on the edge. There were just three cereal bowls and there were just three desert spoons. This a great shame as the property is in an enviable position overlooking the beach and the sea. We stayed here in 2019 and it was much better equipped on that visit. Lastly the cleaning could have been better, there were huge cobwebs hanging from the living room ceiling and while we appreciate that it does have a high ceiling the cleaner should be provided with something to clean these away. We took up all these issues at the start of our stay with Sykes but nothing was done to correct any of the issues. We also called the cleaner and a message but we did not get the courtesy of a reply.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback, this is really appreciated. We have spoken to the owner of The Old Beach Store and he has confirmed that he has asked his housekeeper to ensure all damaged items are replaced and that more equipment is provided. Property Owner

  • "The property was fantastic."

    It was very much a last minute booking and I am so pleased I found it. Ideally located, Sennen Cove was beautiful. The property was perfect, just what we wanted. It was clean and there were some 'treats' left for us. We will certainly be back. A little bit of other feedback - the sink in the bathroom took ages to drain and the shower over flowed! Not sure if the drains need a clear out. We could not use the Sonos as it need to be updated.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are pleased to hear that you had a fantastic holiday. As soon as the cleaners were aware of the issue you mentioned with the sink and shower they have taken action to resolve this. Property Owner

    The accommodation is the perfect size for 2 people. It has everything you need and more. The views are quite simply breathtaking. The only down side was, you had to wait for the hot water to heat up again for a second person to have a shower. We will definitely book to stay here again ❤️

The property

Set in a gorgeous location on the beachfront in Sennen Cove is this a charming holiday home, The Old Beach Store, offering a fabulous Cornish retreat.

Perfect for a couple looking for a relaxing break with views of the sands and sea beyond on their doorstep, you can enjoy all the amenities within the charming village of Sennen Cove.

Enter into this contemporary style home and discover first the kitchen and dining area, where sleek pale grey units hold all the appliances you need including a slim dishwasher carefully tucked away, with a breakfast bar sat beneath the window overlooking the beach for some beautiful breakfast views to wake up to.

Over in the sitting area you can find a woodburning stove takes a central position before the inviting leather sofa, a perfect spot to wind down in when day turns to evening, and on summer days open up the bi-fold doors to let the outside in and feel the fresh Atlantic breeze.

Outside you can sit at the outdoor furniture and enjoy alfresco dining with the gorgeous ocean backdrop, providing a lovely romantic atmosphere.

Find the double bed behind a cabinet acting as a partition between this space and the rest of the property, while next door there is the fully tiled shower room with an indulgent rainfall shower head.

Head to one of the nearby pubs for an evening drink or a pub lunch, with several to choose from, or pick up some ingredients from the local store for a home-cooked meal.

You only need to take a few steps before reaching the beach, sunbathe and relax on the sands, or head to the surf school for a lesson in Cornwall's favourite watersport.

Travel to nearby Land's End Landmark for a variety of activities and things on offer there, or head down to Porthcurno for a show at the famous Minack Theatre, carved into a clifftop, this open-air theatre offers varied productions including those of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The Old Beach Store is a real gem situated in the most idyllic spot right before the beach.
