North Rock Beach House | Luxury Self-Catering | Sennen Cove

North Rock Beach House

Sennen Cove, Cornwall, UK

The swathe of golden sand and crystal-clear sea which curves from Sennen Cove towards Gwynver provides the dreamy coastal setting for this self-catering retreat in West Cornwall. With a cliff-top heated swimming pool and rolling ocean views, North Rock Beach House will be a family favourite for summer holidays for years to come.

Dive into a luxury self-catering stay in Cornwall's 'wild west', where the rugged cliffs plunge into the pounding surf and the sea views stretch all the way to the Isles of Scilly. With sumptuous welcoming interiors which reflect the greys and blues of the natural surroundings, North Rock Beach House boasts outdoor space a-plenty for all the family to enjoy some quality downtime by the sea. Think sandcastle competitions, surf lessons and finger-sandwich picnics on Sennen Beach under Grandma's vintage parasol.


A medley of Rococo beds, fine linens and traditional seaside colours, take your pick from four bright and airy double bedrooms for long mornings languishing under the weight of the duvet. Coastal abstract art adorns the walls, whilst exposed stone reflects the coastal location. Gorgeously sumptuous throughout, sink into squishy sofas set around the open granite fire, watch the sun set over the ocean and dine in the conservatory overlooking the wild and wonderful west coast of Cornwall.


The secluded, enclosed coastal gardens and large heated outdoor pool will prove enormously popular amongst all generations, especially with the mesmeric views and stunning seascapes as a backdrop. Lay out al fresco lunches and make like the Mediterraneans, grazing on cold meats and olives between dips. Inspire children by watching the local surfers cut shapes on the waves, sometimes with playful dolphins for company, before reclining to watch the dramatic Cornish sunset unfold.

From the owner

“North Rock Beach House makes a wonderfully rejuvenating coastal home for a break away with family. It overlooks Sennen Cove which is one of West Cornwall´s most beautiful sandy beaches dubbed "the bay where the dolphins play" and a truly magical setting.”

From the owner

We think North Rock is a perfect place to relax whatever the weather, both when the sun shines and the gales blow. We have tried to make it a home-from-home and encourage guests to take advantage of the many nearby facilities including tennis at Porthcurno, golf at St Just and fishing at Ayr Point. Gwenver beach is the most enchanting spot and is just 10 minutes from the house.

Our children learned how to surf at the surf school in Sennen Cove and we highly recommend it for its friendly, professional and highly trained instructors. There are many wonderful restaurants nearby such as The Beach Café in the cove, the Gurnard’s Head on the way to St Ives, with many more in Penzance and Mousehole. If you want to cook at home, we recommend a trip to Harvey’s in Newlyn where you can buy the most delicious fresh crab or lobster. The Minnack Theatre is magnificent too, whether you go and see a production or just take in the breathtaking views.

North Rock Beach House surpassed our expectations in every way. Truly stunning, from the decor to the breathtaking views. A fabulously well-equipped property, with many thoughtful touches and beautifully maintained gardens with lots of peaceful spots to hide away and relax. The housekeeper was extremely helpful and welcoming also. Thank you to all!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at North Rock Beach House, enhanced by almost perfect weather! It´s comfortable and relaxing with everything you need. The main living room with its picture window is delightful and offered wonderful sunsets and sea views. My favourite area was the conservatory where I had "Grandma time" each morning. Everyone enjoyed the pool and the gardens, particularly my grandsons who spent many hours in the water and discovering "secret" areas in the garden. The immediate access to the coastal path was great!

We felt North Rock Beach House was absolutely stunning and we loved every minute of our stay. We could never tire of the views from the garden and the main sitting room. Magnificent.
