sennen cove rocks

Activities and Sports

The beach is perfect for smimming, body boarding, surfing, kite surfing, and fishing. See the beaches page for links to the surf school.

The South West Cornwall coastal footpath takes you to Lands End and beyond one way and Cape Cornwall the other. Both are dramatic walks across cliff tops. In spring the wildflowers are stunning. There are maps in the cottage.

If you like golf there is an 18 hole course at Cape Cornwall.

The local Mounts Bay Harriers and Triathlon Club are very friendly if you are a runner and want some company, they also have sea swims you can join. Every year, near the end of August there is the 1 mile open water swim - The Yacht Inn Swim, from Newlyn Green to the Jubilee Pool in Penzance. Look on the Harriers Site for the date as its weather and tide dependant.

At St Erth you can turn up for Karting at St Erth and take your turn for a spin. If you fancy a day out in Newquay check Watergate Bay for events.

If you fancy Yoga Nicolle does a drop in session at Sennen and St Just

Places to visit

It's worth the 1 hour trip to the Eden Project if you can spare a day from the beach. Another great day trip is to fly to the Scilly Isles, and if time visit Tresco's sub-tropical Gardens.

For the kids there is a zoo at Newquay; the underground tour at Geevor Tin Mine, one of the largest in the country; or pick up a crabline at the Boathouse stores and fish at the end of the harbour. I can also arrange for you to meet Bilbo the LIfeguard Dog!

Mousehole was described by Dylan Thomas as the lovliest village in the UK; Lamorna Cove is really pretty with a good tea room; St Ives is fun to explore with small shops and eateries in higgledy-piggledy streets.

Porthcurno Telegraph Museum has the WW2 communications hub; Catch St Michael's Mount at low tide in Penzance; and Trewidden Garden Penzance has a maze of paths to explore.
