‘Smugglers Rest’ is a most attractive, seaside cottage with exposed, cut granite elevations under a tiled roof with clay ridge tiles. Built, we understand, in Victorian times, it was fully renovated some seven years ago and now boasts beautifully presented accommodation, which has contemporary touches to suit the most discerning of today’s modern buyers such as underfloor heating under its solid oak ground floor and wooden, sealed unit, double-glazed windows throughout and yet it has lost none of its original character and charm. If you have been stuck in City traffic today and just want to get away from it all at weekends then this cottage and its stunning surroundings is just a perfect spot to melt away the stresses of modern, city life. The property is approached via its broad, slated, sun terrace and granite steps ascend to its front door. On the ground floor, there is a most wonderful, open plan living space some 35’ wide, which encompasses a sitting room with wood burning stove, a kitchen with gas fired Rayburn and lovely, handcrafted painted units with oak work surfaces and a dining room, which enjoys views out through small paned, double-glazed, double casement French doors. This property ticks so many boxes! There is also a useful downstairs shower room/wc. On the first floor, one finds a well-appointed, family bathroom and three good sized, double bedrooms, all with stunning sea views and open vaulted ceilings with exposed, roof trusses.
As well as the broad slated, sea fronting terrace, there are steps, which ascend to the rear of the property giving access to a good-sized storage shed with power and light - a perfect place to store surfboards and family beach paraphernalia and from here steps ascend further to a delightfully situated summerhouse, again with power and light, from which there are even more spectacular views. One can imagine many happy times relaxing looking out over the changing seascape through the changing seasons. The property has been used as a wonderful second home for the current vendors and provides a useful holiday letting income in their absence.
We have arranged three viewing ‘open days’ on Sunday 9th, Monday 10th, Tuesday 11th July 2017.
Private Viewings may be arranged at other times with prior notice.
An ‘open day’ viewing is strongly recommended and please call our offices on 01943 968086 to book an appointment.

‘Smugglers Rest’ is a wonderfully located seaside cottage in a quiet, elevated position right in the heart of the pretty, picturesque village of Sennen Cove. Sennen Cove itself is a beautiful, seaside village, which has many pretty cottages clustered around its small harbour and has a very good range of local amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants. Sennen Beach is a wonderful, golden sand beach, one of the best in the county and, with a reputation for crystal clear water, has regularly been awarded the European ‘Blue Flag’ as recognition for this water quality. Easily accessible from the cottage are miles and mils of quite outstanding, coastal walks, including one to the nearby Lands End and Porthcurno, famous for its cliff top Minack Theatre.
This quintessential, year-round seaside, bolthole cottage is set in the heart of one of west Cornwall’s most picturesque and sought-after villages, just a short walk from one of the county’s finest, golden sand beaches. The property is marketed (if required) with a full inventory of furniture and household goods and rental bookings for next year making it an extremely easy purchase. You could make a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of the City and all you have to do is put the kettle on and enjoy the view.
