The Secrets around Sennen

No matter where you go in the world, there is one phrase that you will love to read or hear ‘little known’. There is something extra special about discovering those areas that most people don’t know about. It makes you feel like an intrepid explorer, and more than a simple visitor. These places are the havens of the locals, and give you a sense that you are venturing into the ‘real’ place, not the facade that can sometimes be applied for the sake of visitors.
Cornwall is no different. In fact, when it comes to secret places, the county is full of them. From relatively unknown spots to popular areas that are dwarfed by their famous neighbours, there are fantastic segments of Cornwall worth exploring and holidaying in for a unique experience that makes you feel like an exclusive VIP guest.

The areas around Sennen Cove are some perfect examples of this.

Sennen Cove

Sennen is well known among holiday makers. It has a fantastic stretch of beach that you will find hard to resist in the summer. The cafe nearby offers you all the refreshments you could want, there is local fish and chips, a pub, and plenty of parking. It’s a great family beach day out kind of place, with a large amount of accommodation to suit all your needs.
It also gets very busy, which is why the nearby areas of Gwynver, Nanquidno Valley and St Just all make great places to holiday.


Gwynver has a beach that is often regarded as one of the best in Cornwall by those in the know. It is also a widely kept secret. It is located just around the corner from Sennen beach, and is even connected at low tide. Not a great beach for swimmers, as the currents can be dangerous, but this secluded sandy paradise is perfect for a more peaceful beach day.


Located near St Just, Nanquidno is an area of beautiful scenery and a secluded beach of smooth granite rocks, rounded by the elements over the years. The walk from the valley to the beach is stunning, wooded at one end, and rugged and rocky at the other. Nanquidno’s charm lies in the fact that it is a properly rural part of Cornwall, unspoiled by time or development; the car park at the top of the valley walk has room for a whole six cars.

St Just

St Just is a traditional Cornish mining village, still surrounded by the ruined reminders of Cornwall’s bygone mineral power. It often celebrates its proud heritage and the local culture with events such as Lafrowda Day which provide a colourful day and night out for interested visitors.

5 Reasons to choose self catering in Sennen Cove

Cornwall is a county full of choice. This is true even of the type of holiday property you stay in. There is a huge selection of properties to choose from, some of which are self-catering. We think that there are many benefits to self-catering cottages in Sennen Cove which are often overlooked. We’ve taken the time to list five of them below.

1. No waiting for a table

Cornwall has many popular restaurants. While their popularity means you can be assured of the quality of their dishes, it also means you might find it hard to get in. Places get fully booked, or you might have to wait an hour or more just to sit down. You won’t have any such problem in your Sennen Cove cottage, where dinner is served when you want it.

2. Use the best of local

It’s amazing what you can find fresh in Cornwall. The local ingredients and produce are just as much a thing to sample and explore as any restaurant menu or local attraction. So why deny yourself the chance? Self-catering in Sennen Cove means that you can pick out the tastiest local ingredients to cook your meals. Meat, fish, vegetables, salad, herbs Cornwall can supply it all.

3. Fussy little ones

Children – bless them don’t always have the most sophisticated of palates. It can be hard to find a restaurant with one of their favourite dishes on the menu, which greatly limits your options of where to dine out. If all your little one will eat is pasta, Cornwall’s many great Indian, Chinese, Spanish and French restaurants are all off-limits. With self-catering, you can cook everyone’s favourite dish, meaning the kids are happy, and you’re happy. You can experiment, they can play it safe.

4. Special diets

It can be frustrating dining out when you have special dietary requirements. Huge portions of the menu are exempted, and it takes you twice as long to choose, as you have to carefully read through the ingredients and small print. Self-catering puts you in control of the menu, and takes the hassle out of dining. You know what you can have, so you can make it, quickly and easily.

5. Give yourself the choice

The best thing about self-catering is that it gives you the choice. If you haven’t got the facilities to cook your own meals, then you have to go out every night. But if you are staying in a self-catering cottage in Sennen Cove, then you still have the freedom to choose. Dining out is a great experience, so there’s no reason you can’t do so one night, then stay in the next. It helps you save the pennies, and gives you a chance to take your holiday in Cornwall at your own pace.
Now you know the benefits of self-catering, it’s time to book your holiday. For affordable and cosy holiday properties in Sennen Cove, Cornwall, browse the Atlantic Cottages site today!
