Enjoy sea views from this characterful cottage close to the beach near Sennen. Giffy House is a relaxed, traditional cottage full of character with fantastic views across fields to the sea, a gorgeous inglenook fireplace and cosy kitchen/dining room with a second wood burner. Set in a small rural hamlet in an area of outstanding natural beauty high above Sennen Cove and Gwenver, it's a ten-minute walk down to one of West Cornwall's most stunning beaches with some of the best surfing in Cornwall.

There is comfortable space for four with two double bedrooms and a single so if you need to accommodate an extra person do ask. If bringing your four-legged friend they will be in heaven, with fantastic walks from the doorstep and Gwenver beach is dog friendly all year round! With private parking, Wi-Fi and plenty of storage for surf boards Giffy House really ticks so many boxes for a great holiday in an area of amazing raw beauty on the western tip of Cornwall.


Tregiffian Veor is a small hamlet of converted farm buildings and cottages set high above Gwenver. It’s a dramatic area in terms of beauty with some of the most spectacular coastal walks in West Cornwall on your doorstep. Sennen is a short drive away with a great surf school, beach bar and good local pub. Further afield it's an easy drive to Penzance, Mousehole and St Ives which are all worth a visit.


The cosy living area is centred on the large inglenook fireplace with a Clearview wood burner. It’s a wonderful place to relax in with a large comfy sofa and armchair. There is a flat screen TV with built in DVD player and Freeview.


The kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer and another separate fridge. In the open plan dining area, there is a small farmhouse dining table and four chairs plus another wood burner. Between the two areas there is a very slight difference in the levels of the two floors.


The front two bedrooms are both double and have splendid views across the fields to the sea and both have chest of drawers one has a fitted wardrobe and one a freestanding wardrobe. At the rear of the cottage with side views is a large single bedroom with a full-sized metal framed single bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers.


The bathroom room has fan heating, a bath and electric shower over with a glass screen. Towels and bedding will be supplied for you, just remember to bring your beach towels.


The front garden is a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee with a pub bench and lawned garden area. A rear gate leads back round to the parking at the rear. Behind the parking area is a useful shed for storing beach gear and boards and feel free to use anything in there.


PARKING: There's room to park in the private space behind the cottage and an extra space to the side. Be aware the lane may be rough and not be suitable for a low-slung sports car. Please drive with caution in bad weather.

WI-FI: We're at the edges of BT's empire here and while there is good Wi-Fi, it is occasionally slow due to the distance to the exchange. Occasionally in bad weather it can drop out but we will always try to get it fixed as quickly as possible. There is good 3/4G for checking emails if this happens.

HEATING: There is a wood burner in the living area and a second in the dining room and independent wall mounted dimplex heaters throughout.

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.

LINEN & TOWELS: You'll have bedding & towels but please bring your own beach towels.

UTILITY: The utility room off the kitchen houses a washing machine and small tumble dryer. There is also an airer, iron and ironing board.

ACCESSIBILITY: The road leading to the barn is quite rutted. You will need to drive very slowly and would not be suitable for low slung vehicles. Giffy House is suitable for children and the parking is a level walk to the front door.

Perfectly placed to enjoy the delights of the area. Sebastian and his team are very responsive (even getting back to me on Boxing Day within minutes when I had a minor query) and extremely helpful.”
