Come in Out of the Storm!

Sennen Cove is a small costal fishing village protected by a substantial breakwater built in 1908 right next to the RNLI lifeboat station. The Cove has clear water and being so far south the swell has the full weight and fetch of the almost the entire Atlantic. It is pounded by the sea to the west and bordered by the parishes of St Just to the north, St Buryan to the east and St Levan to the south.
The long stretch of golden sand at Sennen Cove beach is popular with families and surfers alike all year round. The winter months can be very special, watching the waves and storms out to sea is mesmerising, and listening to surge of the water as the huge granite boulders move like teeth grinding together. Very few places give such a sense of power and majesty of the ocean – a hugely evocative and humbling experience not to be forgotten. The restaurant is an ideal location to cosy up on the sofas storm watching with a hot drink and cake, or a nice glass of wine and hot Sunday Roast in front of the fire on a cold winter’s day.
We survived storm Brian and gave us the opportunity of some stunning images from restaurant.
