Stopped off at Sennen Cove for ice cream during our tour of the Cornish coast. We had a wonderful time watching the locals playing in the waves that came crashing over the breakwater. It's a beautiful part of our little island.

Don’t waste your time or money going to Lands end, come to Sennen cove as it is stunning, peaceful and the beach is amazing. Walk along to the harbour and walk in the RNLI lifeboat station, read all the history and then buy a bag...More
