The Lookout is a romantic apartment for two, set high on the hillside in the iconic Sennen Heights building, with stunning views overlooking Sennen Cove and the long sandy beach of Whitesands Bay. Note that The Lookout is not for the faint-hearted as in order to reach this fabulous pad and enjoy the view you will need to climb around 80 granite steps up the coastal path. The splendid bedroom is what makes this a real romantic love nest with a superking bed and freestanding roll-top bath which sits right in the window – perfect for enjoying the breathtaking sea views or incredible sunsets whilst sipping a glass of fizz. And if you tire of the fantastic sea views, you can practice your star-gazing with a Celestron Short Reflector Telescope which automatically locates the wonders of the universe with its motorised system and on-board computer.

Sennen Cove is a playground for surfers, beach lovers and walkers of the South West Coast Path. There are local shops, cafes, restaurants and a pub, and it is located in an area of Cornwall steeped in mining history with old engine houses dotted across the landscape. Land's End, the most westerly point in Britain, is just around the corner and from here you can take in awesome views from the First and Last Point or walk around the clifftop and have your photo taken by the famous signpost.

A lovely property with amazing views across the Atlantic and over Sennen and the beach. You could probably spend a week enjoying the view from the window, however with lots of Cornwall to explore this was a lovely, comfy, snuggly place to come home to after a days exploration. The workout on the way up to the apartment allows you to indulge to your hearts content, in all seriousness though, the steps up to the apartment are quite a climb however well worth the view. If you choose to stay in, the apartment is well equipped with freeview tv, DVD player, a good internet connection and some huge windows for unspoiled views!

Mr H,

This flat was just beautiful, clean & has a great view, which I didn't get bored of! The walk to Lands End is easy over the coast party or a 10 min drive, the local pub was a place we visited many times & was always greeted in a friendly manner! The only thing I would warn people over is the steep steps up to the flat, if you are not steady on your feet it might not be for you but once you were in the flat the views were breathtaking!

Mrs M,

Amazing location, Clean modern apartment with stunning views of Sennen cove.

Mr S B,

Sennen Cove is a best kept secret!

Mr David C,

Lovely place, would recommend. Very clean, comfortable and in a beautiful stunning quiet location.

Previous Customer,


The spectacular coastline spanning the southern edge of West Cornwall is home to some truly idyllic, picturesque villages and hamlets. From Mousehole in the east (where one of the county’s most impressive Christmas lights display can be found), along the coast to Porthcurno, where the world-famous Minack Theatre is located, right round to Sennen Cove and Land’s End; the county and country’s most south-westerly point.

The approach to Sennen is along a winding lane through beautiful moorland and as you start the descent into the village you can’t help but spot the white-crested waves heading onto shore making Sennen Cove Cornwall’s popular surf hotspot. With a mile of soft white sand and a picturesque harbour, the village combines a working fishing port with an easy-going surf style.

The area’s beaches are a draw for holidaymakers and locals alike and offer great surfing and safe bathing within flagged areas. A range of local independent shops, galleries, cafés and eateries are all within an easy walk along the seafront.

The striking cliffs and mighty ocean are contrasted by the peaceful countryside; enjoy both extremes or, for a totally different experience, explore the area’s mining heritage or take the short drive to Penzance and sample the shops, pubs and restaurants of the town. St Ives, with its art galleries, beaches and foodie culture, is just over half an hour’s drive.
