Sennen Cove: the final frontier. These are the witterings of a West Cornwall shopkeeper. His seemingly interminable mission: to plumb new depths in literary rambling, to seek out the boring and banal, to boldly sink deeper than any Diarist has sunk before.

We are a seasonal shop, open from just before Easter each year until the end of October. We also open for a short time at Christmas. Mostly we open from 08:30 to 18:00 each day but during the holiday periods we extend our hours slightly.

Here you will find a range of information that may be useful on your visit to Sennen Cove. We include medical contacts, marine strandings and dog friendly beach information.

See some of the top quality local food and drink available at The Old Boathouse throughout the season.

Naturally, being on the sea front of a beach resort, we stock a wealth of beach related goods to enhance the quality of your stay.  We have various items of clothing including wetsuits and a range of beach equipment such as parasols, windbreaks and buckets and spades.
