Only a 250-yard walk from the beautiful sandy beach of Whitesand Bay, this charming little row of three delightful and comfortably furnished holiday cottages commands magnificent views over the bay and Sennen Cove. On a quiet lane leading only to the cliffs, they have been very tastefully converted from a spacious Victorian house and are stunningly set in several acres of shared natural grounds; home to a wonderful variety of wildlife which can easily be seen from the steep beach path and the cottages themselves.
The beach at Whitesand is magnificent; a splendid mile of sand which has been awarded Blue Flag status and is excellent for surfing (lifeguards operate throughout the summer, and there is also a ban on dogs from 1st May to 30th September. Dogs are permitted year round on nearby Gwenver Beach). Sennen Cove (½ mile) is a picturesque little fishing village looking out over the bay. It offers shops, pub, restaurants – even a lifeboat station – all within walking distance. There are some beautiful walks along the coast towards Cape Cornwall in one direction, and beyond Land’s End in the other.
The famous outdoor Minack Theatre is only 3 miles away and Penzance (7 miles) boasts a mainline station, shops, inns, swimming-pool, sailing and tennis. There is a golf course at St Just (4 miles) and facilities for squash and badminton are available locally. Picturesque St Ives (a renowned haunt of artists) is 15 miles away along the spectacular north coast.
The Carn Towan cottages are perfectly positioned for enjoying a Cornish holiday – and are cosily heated throughout, with double glazing, making them ideal for all-year-round breaks. Shops ½ mile.

Bishop Rock - Reviews

  • Jonathan - Dawlish 15th February 2020

    Our stay February, 2020

    We have stayed before in one of the other properties here and it is all about location. The view is outstanding and being able to walk the dog from the cottage down to the beach, Sennen Cove and along the coast path makes it a great place to stay. also its cosy at night with the log burner.

    Amazing location of the cottage, stunning views. It was difficult to get down to the beach, and it was easier to use the public footpath which is about 50 metres up the road from the cottage. Although dogs are allowed, it was disappointing to see that owners weren’t able to clean up after their dogs.

    Our family had a really lovely time in Sennen. The cottage was really nice and spacious. The pictures on the website don't really give you a true representation of what the cottage is really like - its actually quite large and roomy - really comfortable. We are a family of 4 and were very happy here for the week. There is everything you need in the cottage - the main bedroom has a wonderful view out across the cove. I was a little apprehensive with regard to the walk down to the beach, our children are 3 and 7 but we found it wasn't an issue - the walk back is steep but wasn't a problem and when you do walk down to the beach you are then at the quieter end of the beach which is lovely. Easy to find and just off the main road. A great place. Many thanks.
