    About this property

    A cosy cottage with a sea view, this property is just 250 yards from a sandy beach and within easy reach of many attractions.. Ground Floor:
    Living/dining room: With electric fire and Freesat TV.
    Kitchen: With breakfast area, electric oven, electric hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.
    Cloakroom: With toilet.

Wet-suit and surfboard hire available. Storage available for surfboards/windbreakers. Ample parking. No smoking.. Only a 250 yard walk from the beautiful sandy beach of Whitesand Bay, this charming little row of three delightful and comfortably furnished holiday cottages commands magnificent views over the bay and Sennen Cove. On a quiet lane leading only to the cliffs, they have been very tastefully converted from a spacious Victorian house and are stunningly set in several acres of shared natural grounds; home to a wonderful variety of wildlife which can easily be seen from the steep beach path and the cottages themselves.
    The beach at Whitesand is magnificent; a splendid mile of sand which has been awarded Blue Flag status and is excellent for surfing (lifeguards operate throughout the summer, and there is also a ban on dogs from 1st May to 30th September. Dogs are permitted year round on nearby Gwenver Beach). Sennen Cove, ½ mile, is a picturesque little fishing village looking out over the bay. It offers shops, pub, restaurants, even a lifeboat station, all within walking distance. There are some beautiful walks along the coast towards Cape Cornwall in one direction, and beyond Land’s End in the other.
    The famous outdoor Minack Theatre is only 3 miles away and Penzance, 7 miles, boasts a mainline station, shops, inns, swimming-pool, sailing and tennis. There is a golf course at St Just, 4 miles, and facilities for squash and badminton are available locally. Picturesque St Ives (a renowned haunt of artists) is 15 miles away along the spectacular north coast. The Carn Towan cottages are perfectly positioned for enjoying a Cornish holiday – and are cosily heated throughout, with double glazing, making them ideal for all-year-round breaks. Shops ½ mile.
    The properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 11 guests.
    Free WiFi

    "Lovely location with spectacular views. Ideal base for exploring.Comfortable and welcoming accommodation, ideal after a long (sometimes wet) walk.Everything we look for, in an English country holiday.Would definitely recommend and hope to stay again."

    "We have stayed in this cottage before, and loved it so much that we had to return. The views are stunning. The cottage is comfortable and ideally located for exploring the many villages and coastlines round about."

    "Fantastic position great view across the cove. Only downside is the climb down and back to beach, if you have any walking difficulties it's not recommended."

    "Comfortable, cosy, with a view to die for! With milk and wine in the fridge, and the makings of a cream tea on the dining table, we felt welcomed before we had started unpacking. Everything about Longships was just perfect. We had a couple of questions before we arrived and Nick answered them quickly and succinctly. Whether you want to explore by walking or by car, Longships is an ideal starting point, although the view is such that you might just decide to sit and enjoy."

    "Fantastic view and location. The property needs some time and money spending on it....The cloakroom is awful and looks like a public toiletThe cheap curtains were torn and badly stained.The blind in bathroom was mouldy The base of the bed was stained and old.The kitchen floor tiles were something you'd put outside.The oven was dirty and rusty.The Internet was very intermittent Sorry but I would not stay here again even though the vista was lovely."

    "This was our first visit to Longships and would certainly like to visit this beautiful cottage again in the future, for many reasons but obviously the location tops the bill. Spent our days out visiting but what a beautiful place to return to and relax and chill with that wonderful outlook over the sea - perfect ! Returned home feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. Can’t say anything negative about this wonderful find and will most certainly return but maybe bring our own pillows. Thank you Mr Toeman you have a beautiful cottage. Just to finish we may book Bishop’s Rock and bring our family."

    "We arrived on Friday evening, all good, next morning we noticed a chemical like smell in the kitchen, but didn’t think that much about it as out all day, we looked for a vacuum cleaner but no cleaner. We noticed the smell as soon as we returned. There is a rule book to read, we booked this as advertised as DOG FRIENDLY, the rule book said about dogs, no dogs on furniture, no dogs upstairs, no walking the dog in the unsecured garden. Not very dog friendly to me.By Monday the smell in the kitchen was over powering and unhealthy, the shower stoped working so we phoned Wendy the house manager and she came over very promptly, we left the bathroom clean and tidy and pleased Wendy could fix it.By Monday evening we were becoming ill because of the smell, even the dog was not right, it was such an intense smell. With this and the dog rules we decided to leave and go home on Tuesday morning, we sent Wendy a text telling her we have left due to the smell and she never replied with anything and to this day I have not heard a word."

    "Apart from the magnificent view, the cottage was outdated, tired and drab. Old kitchen equipment, no table mats or chopping boards. Downstairs toilet was just like an outside toilet with cobwebs. Outside store contained dirty beach equipment, again with cobwebs and dust. Furniture was shabby , settee and chair very low and uncomfortable. Very dangerous step from patio door to garden. General signs of not being decorated for years. No offer of clean bed linen or towels for second week. Unsure as to which parts of the garden we could use, also we were the only cottage without an out side table to dine at, the other two were able to eat outside in the sunshine. Internal doors were all dusty and grimey, inspite of the extra covid cleaning."

    "The location is fabulous. The cottage is small but adequate and has parking. The shower leaves a lot to be desired and the pillows on the bed are dreadful. A good base to explore the far south west."
    "Best cottage ever"
    "We had a great week at Longships. The view from the cottage over Sennen Cove is simply stunning.The cottage itself is very cosy, has everything you need for a self catering stay and has the added bonus of having incredibly reliable high speed fibre broadband! The cottage is in a great location for exploring the nearby coast, Lands End, The Minack Theatre and the tin mines at Botallack are all within a 15 minute drive.We would definitely recommend and have already re-booked for summer 2021."
    "Great location. Great cottage with a fabulous view. Would comeback again. Amazing time.can’t wait to come back."
    "The cottage was lovely and had fantastic views of Sennen Cove. The kitchen was well equipt and the bed comfortable.The walk to the cove was very steep (not a problem for us but could be for others).Given the current situation with Covid we were reassured by the cleanliness and rules associated with this that we were safe from risk.Overall we had a wonderful time and this was a great base for us."
    "This cottage is in a great position, ideal for what we wanted. Close to either the coastal path and the beach,"
