In the privacy of its own grounds, Sennen Rise is a perfect retreat for quiet holidays and for exploring the Penwith Peninsula.

This beach is safe for swimming and is well-equipped with lifeguards throughout the summer months. Under two miles away is Lands End Airport.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Penzance area?
Penzance is a short drive away and home to a plethora of art galleries, pubs, restaurants and architectural curiosities. Chapel Street is full of historical buildings including the Egyptian House built during the Georgian period. Just below it is the Turk's Head, famously the oldest pub in Penzance with a macabre history, a stone's throw from the harbour. Enjoy a swim at the Jubilee Pool, the open-air art deco seawater pool and the geothermal pool, the first of its kind in the UK which is usually 10 degrees or so warmer. Penzance is a lively, friendly town with a welcoming and united community. The sea and beaches are clean and pollution free. The surrounding landscape and coastline are of national importance. Rich and diverse ecological resources abound in the area. Go for a stroll along the coastal path to Marazion and visit St Michael's Mount before proceeding to the quaint village of Mousehole. Enjoy!
