We stayed in Bishops Rock which is advertised as sleeping 6 people. We went with 4 teenagers aged 14 to 18 and found the cottage far too small to be comfortable. The third 'bedroom' is really just an enclosed space on the landing, with no external window, no proper door and no privacy. The twin beds are so crammed in that one of the legs had been sawn off to get it into the space. Our week's holiday began with a major debate about who was going to draw the 'short straw' and sleep in this area. I had read other reviews about the well equipped kitchen but my experience was that it was a real challenge to cook, even basic meals such as pasta, for six and we had to go out and buy our own equipment. Also there is exactly 6 of everything e.g. mugs, glasses etc. which meant that we had to keep getting stuff back out of the dishwasher and wash up. Finally there is room for only 5 in the sitting area in front of the TV.
The location is beautiful and very convenient with generous parking. The views from the garden are wonderful but there is no washing line on which to dry wet towels, which is awkward if like us you are surfing every day.
I think this cottage would be good for 4 people but is not adequate for 6. We are returning to Sennen Cove again in 2012 but have booked different accommodation.
