The property

Just two miles from Sennen Cove and the coastal footpath easily accessable, Furnace Cottage nestles in the small hamlet of Escalls just above the cliffs of Sennen Cove, let the sea air invigorate the senses.

Relish in time forgotten at this lovely cottage with traditional features, carefully furnished with love and affection; Escalls is a friendly environment for families and there are many walks that can take guests to the edge of the cliffs along to the beautiful Whitesand Bay at Sennen Cove.

Gwenver beach is nearby too and is ideal for surfing and allows dogs. A very peaceful situation well off the main thoroughfare with wonderful walking and coastal scenery, and convenient for the village of Sennen which is only about a mile away.

Here there are cafes, very good quality restaurants, pubs, a church, shops, Post Office and garage for repairs.

The famous landmark of Land's End is only about two miles away, and the bustling market town of Penzance with its long seaside promenade looking out to St. Michael's mount is a short drive only.

The quaint 'artists paradise' of St Ives is also easy to reach by car.

The open air Minack Theatre set into the cliff face is also close where both amateur and professional shows can be seen in this unusual and most picturesque setting during the summer months. A warm welcome is guaranteed at this cottage that has a long history of providing excellent accommodation for guests that return year on year to enjoy the magnificent location and the epitome of old character, highlighted by a large inglenook fireplace featuring the original bread oven and which now houses a multi fuel stove for those cooler evenings.

Renovated and extended to add comfort and definite enhancement on the ground floor and pretty bedrooms, this semi detached cottage offers a double and twin room (with glimpses of the sea) and a pleasant enclosed garden backing onto open farmland.

About the location


Land’s End 1 mile; St Just 5 miles; Penzance 9 miles.

The most westerly village in mainland Britain, Sennen has a lovely mile-long beach of pure white sand and is a very popular holiday destination. With excellent surfing conditions, the village has its own surf school – overlooked by a super-cool beach bar/restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows which make the most of the wonderful views. Once a hub of smuggling activity, Sennen still retains many secret passages – one of which is said to lead to the covered well in the Old Success Inn. Largely unchanged over time, this lovely village has a timeless appeal and is home to a gallery, a medieval church, an Iron Age fort and a small selection of shops where you can buy beachware, gifts and souvenirs, and a range of groceries. There is also a weekly Farmers’ Market in the village Community Centre each Tuesday morning. During the summer, the beach bar becomes a hub of activity and entertainment, with live music, weekly barbecues and popular surfing competitions.
