Where you’ll be

St Just, England, United Kingdom

Hendra Farmhouse is a detached, traditional Cornish building - the original farmhouse of a little hamlet. There are three houses, surrounded by fields and stunning views.
The house looks over National Trust fields; and the coastal path, which is easily accessible. It takes less than 10 minutes to walk to the sea.

A short drive takes you to Sennen Cove and Gwenver, two of West Cornwall’s finest beaches and from the doorstep there are walks down the spectacular coastal path. This area is in so many ways untouched by modern life and West Penwith is much loved for its untamed raw beauty. Hendra takes in so much of what this magical area has to offer. From the crashing waves of the Atlantic, the dramatic cliffs, stretches of golden sand and some of the best surfing in Cornwall, it’s all on your doorstep for a fantastic holiday.

We've visited Cornwall every year since returning from Singapore in 1988. At first our destination was the Rock/Trebetherick area but then we discovered the wilder, remote and rugged West Penwith...and that was it! The area, notably Sennen, had particular appeal too to our two small boys mad on surfing, both of whom in later years did stints as instructors. We came across Hendra Farmhouse in 2001 and set about restoring it, especially the wing (piggery) which was tumbledown. It is truly a blend of old and new. In the house you'll find a guidebook with all sorts of recommendations: activities, places of interest, beaches, shops, eating out etc. Enjoy your visit.
