Sennen holidays evoke those golden beach memories that we all have from childhood. Sitting just slightly above the sandy beach below, the quaint village of Sennen is renowned for its brilliant surfing conditions that offer some of the best waves on the West coast. Staying in Sennen means you can enjoy the warm, welcoming atmosphere and explore one of the best beaches and dramatic coastline in West Cornwall.
To accompany the wonderful surf, Sennen also gives you the chance to visit a number of private galleries as well as some great small cafés and restaurants. Ice cream is of course a must to give you that real English seaside feel!
This is a historical area with many legends tied to it that tell stories of ghosts and ghouls, pixies and mermaids that frequent the caves and coves around the bay. There is also talk of mythical creatures that warn the fishermen when conditions at sea would mean imminent doom for their crew and their boats!
Just around the corner you can pay a visit to Lands End and see the most south westerly point of main land Britain. Have your photo taken with the famous sign post to keep as a souvenir of your trip and walk back along the coast until you reach Sennen Cove. Admire the beauty of the area as you watch the birds fly over head and enjoy the fresh coastal air. Now you’ve seen the most south westerly point, head down to the Lizard and see the most southerly point, with uninterrupted views across the ocean and coastline you won’t be disappointed.
With such a romantic history and spectacular views it’s clear to see why so many artists have been inspired to take a holiday in Cornwall and paint their memories for posterity. For a little culture on your Cornish seaside break pop over to the hand carved Minack Theatre, which is a wonderful open-air amphitheatre owned and managed by the National Trust. With the back drop of the Atlantic Ocean you can enjoy the natural environment and see a show all at once.
If you fancy a spot of shopping while on holiday, if you head up to Penzance for a nautical themed shopping day out; with lots of small gift shops perfect for stocking up on family souvenirs and a number of high street stores up the main street you have plenty to choose from. Further afield you also have Truro with large chain stores and a unique pannier market to browse.
Staying in Sennen means you can enjoy the warm, welcoming atmosphere and explore one of the best beaches and dramatic coastline in Cornwall.
