About ruth cheyne

We have lived in Sennen for the past 15 years, originally as "Covers" in Capstan Cottage, but with our extending family we have now become "Overhillers" and moved up to Sunny Corner Lane. Sennen is a very special place and it will be lovely to share it's magic with others.

Why ruth cheyne chose Cornwall

Sennen Cove is an amazing location if you love the sea. Just a stones throw to the beach for a dip or a surf. It's a lovely place to return to after a days work, an evening walk down the beach removes any stress!

The stunning views from the house are like a living piece of art and no matter how long I live or spend here it never ceases to impress me.

Outstanding views, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage, we took our dogs and the kids, most spectacular views, at night very cosy with the log fire on, the windows opening a little to hear the sea. Well positioned and stocked utensils and so on. Take a little stroll the old success inn pub (for a wee dram). Its great taking the dogs out of season as they are allowed on the beach then. A fantastic break for family with kids. Highly recommend.

Lovely bright, well maintained and equipped cottage with the benefit of a fabulous entertainment space in the cabin. Really enjoyed our stay in this most beautiful location and hope to be fortunate enough to visit again next year...particularly if the weather we had this year repeats! Thank you so much, it was perfect.
