    The Old Saltings, Sennen Cove, Penzance, Cornwall. TR19 7DB

    Follow the A30 road into Cornwall and drive right to Penzance. On reaching Penzance, at the Tesco roundabout, take the second exit onto the Penzance bypass which is signed to Lands End.

    Follow this very winding road to the village of Sennen. About three quarters of a mile after you pass the sign “Sennen” there is a turning on the right signed “Sennen Cove”. Take this road down the very steep hill to the cove.

    Drive along the promenade, past the Lifeboat Station and The Round House. (The Old Saltings is the last house on the left hand side). As you reach the Round House turn left up a narrow lane and in front of Myrtle Cottage turn right (even narrower) and our 2 parking spaces are on the right hand side behind the cottage with a small gate leading down to the back garden.
