"Manor Farm, Nr. Sennen Cove"

This wonderfully laid-back farmhouse has been refurbished with effortless style and is set in a small hamlet, moments from some of the most stunning scenery in West Cornwall. Offering a great escape for couples or larger families Manor Farm is all about kicking back and taking life easy.

This generous detached farmhouse sits back from the headland between Sennen Cove and Gwenver beach in the rural hamlet of Escalls. It's under ten minutes’ walk to the dog friendly surf beach at Gwenver, or a slightly longer walk or short drive to the popular Sennen Cove. From the art on the walls to the linen on the beds, Manor Farm is a truly fantastic place to enjoy all the hidden gems and beauties that Far West Cornwall has to offer.


Escalls is a small hamlet ideally located between Sennen Cove and Gwenver beaches. Swim, surf, walk the coast, or simply find a sheltered spot to sit and contemplate the beauty - you'll be spoilt for choice here. You're only a few miles from Land's End, and it's certainly worth walking there to see the dramatic cliffs and remains of ancient civilisations.

The famous pubs The Old Success and The First and Last are both less than half an hour's walk (or a couple of minutes in the car), as are the cafés in the cove.

Many of our guests have been coming back to the immediate area for decades, and as we never tire of it, we can understand why.


On arrival you walk into a bespoke fitted boot room. This practical and charming entrance is ideal for offloading walking boots and coats.  Going through a door, leads you into the beautiful glass ceilinged Garden Room, one of three large reception rooms downstairs at Manor Farm. The Garden Room's bifold doors open up onto a pretty walled courtyard patio, making the most of any weather conditions. It provides a place to sit in the sun on those windy days and views of dramatic scenery when it rains. The Garden Room leads into a cosy living room with big comfy sofas and a wood burner, ready to relax and enjoy after a long blustery walk. From the living room there are pocket doors which reveal a large study with more sofas, ready to catch the evening sun and/or plan the next day’s events.

Cooking & eating

You'll often hear the term "farmhouse kitchen" - well, here it's for real. The kitchen is centred around a large Loaf farm table that seats up to 8. There is a love seat sofa, a range cooker with modern induction hob, fridge / freezer, washing machine and a dishwasher too. There's even another wood burning stove. This is the true hub of the home.



At The Cornish Way we're out in the fresh air as often as we can be, and perhaps that's why we so love a great night's sleep. All the wonderful beds were chosen to offer a great sleep.

The master bedroom has a king size bed (and an en suite with roll top bath!). Two further large bedrooms both have zip and link beds that transform from twin beds into super kings for the ultimate couples' luxurious sleeping space. 

Every bedroom has an engaging view, one looks over the countryside and the other two over stripes of fields towards the ocean.


The master bedroom has an en suite with roll top bath, and a picture window with views across the countryside. The family bathroom has a large walk-in shower that will simply drench you after a long hot sunny walk. There is also an original cast-iron free-standing claw foot bath, perfect for a soak after a day in the sea. Downstairs you will find another large stylish shower room and toilet, so you can jump straight in on returning from the beach.


The garden is enclosed and surrounds the house, with an area of flat lawn. Perfect for letting children and the dog play. It is bordered by Cornish ‘hedges’ (beautiful granite walls softened with pretty planting). There’s a decking area with a table and seating for at least 8 people. From here there are sea glimpses making it perfect for a barbeque or simply enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine. 

In the garage you will find logs for the wood burners and buckets and spades for the beach. It’s also a handy place to dry off wetsuits if it’s too cold or damp to use the outside washing line. What would have originally been the front of the farmhouse is now a large courtyard shared with The Piggery opposite. See details below to book The Piggery alongside Manor Farm to increase your stay for 8 people.

Tony & family – August 2021 

“Manor Farm and The Piggery have been the perfect stay for our family holiday this summer. The walk from Escalls to Porthcurno was the highlight as well as the sunsets at Gwenver beach… Thank you!”

Tracie – July 2021

“Thank you for another perfect stay in West Cornwall. Our first time at Manor Farm but second time booking with The Cornish Way (Seb and Paola are ace!), certainly won’t be our last. Going to miss Gwenver beach – not so much the steps – and John’s brownies. Thanks again for a great stay. See you soon.”
