"Mill House, Sennen"
At Mill House, with its breath-taking sea views from most rooms, you’ll enjoy the luxury of space from the flowing living areas and bedrooms in this amazing holiday home. Perched high above the stunning Sennen Cove with its famous surfing beach a short walk away, this detached house really has the Wow factor and is set behind electric gates within its immaculate and spacious gardens.
Beautifully curated by specialists Archavon Interiors, the huge four bedroomed house oozes a quiet confidence that is distinctly modern, where style and comfort seamlessly merge.
The Far West is loved for its wild untamed beauty. The crashing waves of the Atlantic, the barren moors, stunning beaches and quaint villages unaffected by the pace of modern life. Now you can experience that raw beauty from the luxurious embrace of one of the Far West’s best homes - Mill House. Relax in the generous gardens. Curl up on one of our favourite sofas. Or if you’re lucky enough to have the master bedroom, sneak away with a book and a drink to absorb one of the best views in town or simply curl up on the sumptuous Loaf bed after a day exploring.
Few houses achieve this high standard, far fewer are available for holiday use and we are confident you will want to return to this most special home.
It really doesn't get better than this! At the top of Cove Road, Sennen an easy walk down to the stunning beach but just far enough away to have peace and quiet if you want. Often known as 'The Bay Where The Dolphins Play', Sennen Cove has a beautiful Blue Flag beach, two surf schools, a restaurant, an ancient pub, fish and chips and café too. The coastal walking from here offers both gentle and more challenging options with Lands End and Cape Cornwall within easy reach. You’re not restricted to Sennen though. There are five other sandy beaches within ten miles. And yes – you may well see dolphins in the bay.
Downstairs the whole family can enjoy their own space in the vast yet comfortable open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. In the lounge, the large OLED TV has a full BT TV package, and there’s SONOS for streaming music and radio. Maybe though you’ll prefer to enjoy the superb sofa with a book and open the doors onto the garden. Upstairs the Club Room takes lounging to another level. Sumptuous may be an overused term – but it’s perfectly suited to this large lounge with its deep balcony and sea views towards Cape Cornwall. I’m sure the grown-ups will retreat to the Club Room for relaxation after dinner and dream of creating a similar sanctuary at home.
Cooking & Eating
The kitchen has all that you need to create those feasts that you never find time for at home. There’s a large American style fridge freezer, and a separate small fridge too. Two Bosch electric ovens and a microwave, with a SMEG five-burner gas hob to ensure you can welcome the whole family to dinner. The dining table seats 10, while the breakfast bar enables conversations with the cook at work. On that subject – if you’d like a special event catered for do ask, we have some superb contacts.
Each of the four bedrooms has its own character and all offer generous space and excellent mattresses for a great night’s sleep.
On the second floor are two bedrooms: -
MASTER BEDROOM: Oh, to sleep in a room like this! A super king size bed from Loaf with their best mattress, a large walk-in shower in the en suite, and a walk-in wardrobe. All that would be great, but here you also have the ever-changing views to absorb from your own private balcony, or from the beautiful Lamino Scandi-modern classic armchair.
THE SUPERIOR BEDROOM: This most generous bedroom has a king size bed, en suite with walk in shower, plenty of storage space and a funky desk from which to write your memoires, or maybe a post card.
On the first floor are a further two bedrooms:
MAP ROOM: You tell us your ideal sleeping combination for this calming room. A super king bed, or large twin beds – the zip and link bed means the choice is yours.
THE WINNIE ROOM: A brightly lit room with twin beds and fitted wardrobes.
Both the top floor rooms have en suites with walk in showers.
On the middle floor the main bathroom has a super comfortable curved bath that even has a TV at the end. There are also twin basins and a walk-in shower.
The simple gardens surround the house and offer plenty of space for cooking and dining outside (there’s a great barbecue for the outdoor chef). There’s room to play, soak up the sunshine, and plan the week ahead. There’s even an outside shower ideal for stripping off wetsuits after a day in the sea.
The large ground floor utility room will swallow all your coats, shoes, and drying towels. It has a washing machine, a dryer, a heated drying rack and the most stylish downstairs loo we’ve ever seen.
useful to know...
PARKING: There’s electric gates leading to space for three cars on the drive.
WI-FI: Mill House has reasonable Wi-Fi; you won’t get fast Wi-Fi anywhere this far west but it’s perfect for surfing the web or checking emails.
HEATING: Mill House is well insulated and efficient, and the heating will be maintained at a comfortable temperature during your stay.
PETS: Far West Cornwall is doggie heaven! There’s plenty of beaches and coast paths for exploring. Two well-behaved dogs are welcome at £35 each per week/short break. Please make sure they stay out of bedrooms and off the furniture and that you rub down muddy/sandy feet before they come in.
Please note we love dogs here at The Cornish Way but the Mill House is immaculate. Pets are not allowed upstairs or on any of the furniture much of which is very valuable. You know your four-legged friend better than us so if they are likely to climb on furniture it may not be the best choice of property and you should take care to ensure no extra charges are made for cleaning or damage.
LINEN & TOWELS: You'll have bedding & towels but please bring your own beach towels.
ACCESSIBILITY: While Mill House is on the flat, and has a downstairs toilet, the house would not be suitable for guests unable to climb stairs. If in doubt or if you have any questions do get in touch before booking.
This property is not wheelchair friendly and may not be suitable for those with limited mobility. If this applies, please contact our booking office to discuss the properties potential suitability prior to confirming.
CHANGEOVER DAY: Mill House usually changes on a Friday. Do check with us if your dates don't quite fit as we will always try to help.
WHAT GUESTS ARE SAYING...
"Wow, what can I say about this fabulous property. It's so beautifully decorated and furnished to the highest standard and there is nothing that you could need that is not provided. Every detail has been thought about with care. All the rooms are large and spacious with lots of natural light and the main lounge and master bedroom having balconies with the most beautiful sea views. The house is in walking distance to the fabulous beach and amenities and very close to accessing the coastal walks. I recommend the one to Nanjizal. Sebastian and Paola from the Cornish Way were so very very helpful. I would recommend any family to enjoy spending time at this most delightful house and setting."

"Finding a home away from home for a week can be tough. But Mill House was a real treat. The house was of good size and the furniture and decor was of good quality and well thought out. The location at the top of the hill overlooking the bay was great and only a five minute walk down this hill to hit the beach (and ten minutes back up...!). As a family we spent most of our time on the beach but drove out to some other sights, like Saint Michael's Mount, Penzance and Kynance Cove. The communication with the host was excellent. Overall, if you are looking for a Stay Cay then I would certainly recommend this house and location."

"Our stay in Mill house over new year was amazing. we had lots of space much needed especially from the teenagers perspective. It was comfortable cosy and well equipped . We're foodies and really enjoyed the kitchen and eating at the lovely table. Really appreciated the design which was perfectly balanced and still homely. Perfect location , a ten minute walk down to the stunning cove , coastal walks and adventure
We'll be back ! "
