If you want a family camping experience, Trevedra campsite is the go. If you don’t fancy camping, Whitesands hotel offer the best value rooms and also have a self catering surf lodge. Sennen Cove has quite a few cottage holiday lets that seem to get booked up quite quickly so try to book early if this is your cup of tea. Vellandreath offer beautiful cottages right on the beach and The Old Success Inn offer a wide range of suits next to the beach which is often our customers favourite.
During the holidays, get to Sennen Cove early, before the car parks exceed their capacity (to save you having to park up the hill and walking back up) and use the Southern end car park past the lifeboat station as it’s closer to Smart Surf School and a little bit cheaper. Parking machines take coins only and vary from £1 to £3.50 (this can increase from year to year).
Enjoy the full Cornish breakfast at ‘The Little Bo’ Cafe (before 12pm), where you can sit in, or outside in the sun and enjoy the views. It’s located near the lifeboat station and they serve the best coffee at Sennen Cove. A favourite choice of our surf coaches.
Grab your lunch from the Blue Lagoon Fish and chip shop (open from 12pm). They are located halfway along the Cove, next door to Smarf Surf School. The Blue Lagoon change their frying oil on a daily basis for excellent batter and serve the best crab sandwiches. Their crab and fish is brought in fresh from Newlyn each morning. This chippy is licensed and serves cold beers and wines with indoor and outdoor seating.
The Old Success pub have a great dinner menu, fine ales, lagers and are situated at the bottom of Sennen Cove hill (you can’t miss it). You’ll find the Smart Surf Coaches here most evenings enjoying good vibes while watching the sun set.
Before leaving Sennen Cove, book yourselves a table at the Ben Tunacliff restaurant. Fine dining on the waters edge is obviously a must at least once during your hols on the Cove. We especially like the Monk fish or Lobster with a cheeky bottle of Champaign on occasions.
