Things to do in Sennen, Cornwall – Walking:

This is superb walking country. Breathtaking views, eye watering sunsets and more flora and fauna than you can shake a walking stick at. Vellandreath Valley is the perfect starting point for any stroll, walk, ramble or hike. Venture south and one can walk over the beach or dunes, into Sennen cove, on to Lands End, Logan’s Rock and the South Coast beyond. Head north and one finds Gwenver Beach, Ayr Point leading to Cape Cornwall, on to Guarnards Head and as far as the Badlands if you’re brave enough. Of course you can always head inland and explore the moorland, woods, nearby ancient settlements and prehistoric relics. Always be prepared: with sensible clothing and footwear a must, water and mobile phone a given and a bar of chocolate a treat. An ordinance survey map may come in handy too if you’re on a serious mission.

Things to do in Sennen, Cornwall – Golf:

Cape Cornwall‘s superbly located golf course is just 6 miles away.
Walking the Cape Cornwall golf course you could easily be forgiven for thinking that it was one of the oldest golf courses in England. Yet it was only designed in 1990 by Bob Hamilton, who also designed courses in Scotland and Singapore.
It is a truly natural course, ranging over both farmland and cliff tops and presents the golfer with a mix of challenging holes, and stunning views. ‘Challenging’ is indeed the most often used word when golfers return, especially on windy days!

Without doubt Cape Cornwall should be on every golfers lifetime itinerary. Once ticked-off you’ll want to come back again and again.
It’s a par 69 challenge, cliff tops, undulating fairways, dry-stone walls – known locally as Cornish hedges – and even ancient mine-shafts to negotiate!
The course is open and playable 364 days a year.

Things to do in Sennen, Cornwall – Fishing:

Whether you’re a serious sports fisherman, competent angler, seaweed catcher or crab hunter there are a wealth of spots and options to choose from…
Right in front of Vellandreath Valley you can try your luck beach casting for Bass or Mullet. To the South the breakwater at Sennen Cove serves up Pollack, mackerel and the odd conga eel. To the north hike to Arys point and enjoy the fruits of the open ocean. Of course if you are in possession of a hardy sea kayak and (and handle yourself in the open ocean) the with the right kit, the possibilities are endless. Boat trips are available from Penzance whether its a family mackerel fishing trip or a deep sea wreck expedition for the big stuff. Just because the Atlantic Ocean is 200 meters away doesn’t mean you can’t go course fishing. There are plenty of perfect places you can settle down, cast a fly or wait a while to watch your float sink. Whatever you choose, bring your catch back to your Cornish Cottage in Vellandreath Valley and cook it up on your complimentary Barbeque.

Things to do in Sennen, Cornwall – Surfing:

Here at Vellandreath Valley we have one of natures best playgrounds right on our doorsteps: the beach. Of course where there’s a beach there’s the the sea and in our case we have the Atlantic Ocean brushed by the warmth of the Gulf Stream. Sennen’s Whitesands Bay is a Blue Flag beach and is well known for its quality surf, rich in surf history and folk lore. The conditions vary according to time and tide but waves can be found for all abilities whether novice, intermediate or expert. Don’t worry, if surfing is not for you then one can always take advantage of the sheltered end of the bay and swim between the lifeguard’s red and yellow bathing flags when the waves are up. Children have an absolute ball in the surf and the local surf schools offer great coaching to get them up and riding the rollers though of course just frolicking in the waves and body boarding will be excitement enough for some. If you’ve already got the surfing bug then this is the perfect place for you. If you’ve yet to try surfing then, in our opinion, there’s no better place to start…

If you fancy a change from the beach life or the kids get itchy feet why not have a day out at one of the many attractions in the area. Whether is its mining heritage, delightful gardens, museums or theme parks theres something for everyone…

Other activities that can enjoyed by your own arrangement are cycling, yoga, rock climbing and much, much more !
