  • "Key hand over was seamless."

    The location excellent. The property itself is large and spacious.

  • "Comfortable and clean accommodation but would benefit from an update,especially with regards to attention to detail."

    Comprehensive instructions for the dishwasher and washing machine would have been helpful, and a plug for one of the two baths! Fabulous views from the conservatory and a lovely walk down to the beach.Caretaker Jason was very helpful.

  • "The property is absolutely beautiful."

    We had a lovely stay, its a shame we only had a weeks stay. We can't complain about much due to it being so close to perfection, but if we had to comment on anything it would be the rugs aren't very pleasant due to extracts, the bins were full from the previous occupies and the mattresses could do with updating. Everything else was perfect. The layout was outstanding, the views were amazing and the caretaker was very helpful so we couldn't of asked for a better property. It's beautiful, stunning in fact. We would love to own a house like this one. Just beautiful

  • "This was a great place to stay for two families with young children, the photos don't really do it justice but the layout was perfect for us with a double, twin and bathroom for each family."

    Fantastic views, especially watching the rainstorms :-) Lots of space for the kids to play inside, and they loved exploring the gardens. Great being able to walk down to the beach at Gwynver, the kids loved engineering the stream and playing in the rockpools. Jason the caretaker was very friendly and helpful when we accidentally tripped the electrics by making too much toast. Only thing missing was a dustpan and brush, it was hard to keep on top of the sand invading the porch! Thanks for a lovely stay :-)

  • "This is a lovely spacious house in a great location with amazing views."

    The house is a bit dated in places but was very clean and well equipped for 8 adults. We did however find the beds very uncomfortable - which was a shame seeing as the bedrooms are very large and could easily accommodate king size divan beds rather than the creaky wooden framed ones provided which have very basic mattresses. Despite this though, it was a great base for this part of Cornwall and overall we were pleasantly surprised - especially in view of the price. The listing doesn't mention that there is a dishwasher in the kitchen - so that was a real bonus and the caretaker, Jason, was very helpful both before and during our stay.

  • "We read a recent review on Tripadvisor, after we had booked but before we arrived and were concerned about cleanliness plus other comments."

    We spoke to Sykes who were helpful and responsive. When we arrived the house itself was clean, however incredibly tatty and worn. Key comments: Damp and mold in bedroom cupboard is not acceptable Some of the furniture was worn out and needed to go Kitchen was home made and rickety Bathroom was bodged together with different tiles, presumably as an when fixes have been put in The outside space could be very nice however it was overgrown (albeit a gardener did arrive mid week and addressed the parking area)....too late for us. Only a tired outside pub bench to sit on and a rusty BBQ that is beyond use, was provided. I dont think we should pay this much for a house of this quality and upkeep. I can send photos as needed Look forwards to hearing from you? Oliver

  • "1. The location of this place is fantastic."

    Private path down to a sandy dog friendly surfing beach. It is steep though, so you have to be reasonably fit. However, if you don't want to walk and surf and lie on a beach (which we did), there isn't so much in the near vicinity - you will have to drive somewhere. Sennen is all about surfing. 2. Larger property than we thought. Detached and isolated. All good. It exceeded our expectations by a long way. 3. So so fixtures and fittings and a bit dated. But if it was a show home we could never have afforded it. Some day someone will spend a lot of money doing it up and it will go for a sky high sum of money. 4. Sykes very very iffy on Covid guarantees. Promised things in writing on booking which were never delivered. Couldn't get a straight answer. Fortunately didn't have to cancel. 5. Wouldn't hesitate to go back. Loved the place.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Tregiffian Vean, thankyou."

    The location was ideal, quiet surroundings, but easy walking to Sennen Cove, and central for a visit to the Minack (although we chose a very wet evening to go!). However, the property is in need of a little TLC (particularly outside) and a bit of "attention to detail" inside, ie missing light bulbs, lack of full-length mirror, instructions for the washer/dryer, rugs beside the beds in the twin room - cold floor for your feet! Jason the manager was very helpful and quickly responded when we had issues which needed dealing with. We were surprised at the lack of an outside line to dry washing (at least we couldn't find one!), particularly as the house sleeps up to 8 - putting everything in the washer/dryer for a large family is not very practical. The shower was not very powerful in the bathroom on the right as you enter the property. The heating was very efficient though, as the evenings were quite chilly. The garden area could do with a good tidy-up, and the contents of the wooden shed left a lot to be desired. However, these things did not detract from a very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable break for us five "60 something" ladies from Devon!

  • "Lovely, spacious house with amazing views."

    The house itself is quite run down in places and needs some TLC. There were a few things that were broken and in general needs some love! There were also a few key things missing e.g. An iron, bin bags, logs for fire (which said would be provided). For the last 1.5 days the hot water stopped working too. However, lots and lots of space and rooms to sit in and the views made it all worth it!

  • "The house was in an excellent position with a lovely walk down to the beach."

    There was plenty of room and the views were wonderful. The house was clean, the kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable. However a lot of the windows would not open and this would be a problem in hot weather, particularly in the conservatory. The bathroom needs either a window that will open or an extractor fan as there is nowhere for the steam to escape and the bedrooms feel damp. Some of the webbing under the seats in the conservatory has collapsed which means some of the seats cannot be used which was disappointing. It would have been nice if the garden had been tidied up and the grass cut so that we could have used it. Apart from these issues we very much enjoyed our stay and the welcome pack was a nice touch which meant we could have a cup of tea and a biscuit when we arrived.

Gwenver Beach Collection

Sennen Cove 1.7 miles. Perfect for beach and coastal holidays and short breaks, these properties are set in a stunning location with private access to Gwenver beach close to Sennen Cove, 5 miles from Lands’ End and 9 miles from the ancient market town of Penzance. As soon as you arrive down the private drive you feel immediately relaxed with amazing sea views all the way. The properties are well-equipped and two have a balcony where you can sit out with your morning cup of tea and enjoy your surroundings. The nearby beach is sandy and around 150 yards long and with some of the best surfing conditions in Cornwall it is surprising that it never gets too crowded. For those who want to relax and watch the surfing action the beach is a real suntrap located at the base of steep granite cliffs. With superb coastal walks in either direction right from the door walkers will also be in their element here. Adjoining is Sennen Cove with Whitesands beach, one of the cleanest in Europe and named in the top 20 secret beaches in the British Isles. Sennen Cove still retains much of the atmosphere of an old fishing village, with a small number of local fishing boats plying their trade from the harbour. With Sennen having a great pub, a top class restaurant, a café, fish and chip shop as well as a village shop you will have all the ingredients for a great holiday whatever time of year.
