Fantastic place for enjoying the most south westerly part of Cornwall at its very best, we've been back year after year - and yes, we really do have a 7yr old called Sennen - a choice we didn't make lightly!
Look out for dolphins, miles of clean, golden sand and lots of fresh salty sea air. Walk along the beach to get a bit more space in the busy season - but not too far that you can't make it back to the excellent beach cafe for a cup of tea or some chips!
We've been back and back to Sennen: we love the beach with its beautiful sands, in the curve of green sandy hills. The locals are friendly too, if you go to the Market (held on Tuesdays, community hall). It's history as a typical Cornish fishing village is still obvious in the lobster pots and fishing boats in the small harbour. Spectacular sunsets over the sea.
Many Sennen fishermen are members of the South West Handline Fishermen's Association. Their Web site lets you trace the journey of your fish from 'hook to plate' and introduces some of the faces you're likely to see fishing at Sennen cove. www.linecaught.org.uk
Now I'd be the first to admit it - I am biassed. I live in Sennen, and I'm here out of choice. I love the wild, windswept feel of the village. I love the huddled feel of the cove. The beach is second to none and is excellent for surfing. The landscape and the cliff paths (and the views from them) are simply breathtaking. The pubs are cosy and welcoming and the people are friendly. Whatever the time of year I always find something exhilarating about this area.
