Luxurious and spacious cottage sleeps five
About Seb Blakemore
Seb has been lucky enough to have lived in West Cornwall for the past 7 years. After coming down for an extended break he fell in love with this beautiful area and never left! Based in St Just, Seb took on an old wreck and worked to create a comfortable home. This is now also the headquarters for The Cornish Way who look after luxury cottages for a select group of owners and their lucky guests. The aim of The Cornish Way is to provide holidays that fill you with joy - and the bespoke selection of cottages Seb offers are sure to deliver.
Why Seb Blakemore chose Sennen
We are right at the edge of Britain and it can be utterly calm, yet at other times wild in the extreme. The very contrasts in the weather, no matter what it throws at you, are truly good for the soul and leave you feeling more alive.
What makes this Barn unique
When you stay at New Forge you'll have wonderfully comfortable accommodation, far reaching views, good gardens and you could spend a relaxing holiday here without ever leaving the property. But when you venture out you have the best of Cornwall with its cliffs and beaches right on your doorstep.

Would highly recommend this property, stunning location and beautifully appointed
It's clear that a lot of love and attention to detail has gone into this property. It's wonderful when you arrive somewhere new and it exceeds expectations. Comfort of beds and furnishings very high. Beautiful views especially from upstairs. The area is surrounded by beautiful beaches and lovely places to eat in scenic surroundings. Our dogs had a whale of time too as we went slightly out of the dog ban season, be aware that a lot of the beaches in West Cornwall have seasonal dog bans until end of Sep. Gwynver beach is a short walk from the Forge and has no dog ban - well worth the slightly challenging approach. Seb was very attentive before our stay and we had no need for any further assistance during our stay as the property was loaded with books and information about exploring the area that we could happily trawl through. We would definitely return.
Thankyou Jackie for the lovely review and really pleased you and the dogs had a great trip! Hope to welcome you again soon.
Another fab time at New Forge Cottage
I'm not sure that I can add anything to last year's review. We stayed for two weeks this time and enjoyed every minute, especially as the weather was so nice. I still can't get over how quiet it is at New Forge. Just a 15 minute walk to lovely Gwynver beach, another half hour and you're in Sennen. We walked to Land's End a couple of times and managed the walk along the coast path to Cape Cornwall, highly recommended. Missing it already!
Lovely to hear Tim and so pleased it was another great trip to New Forge and the far west. Hope to welcome you again next year!
2 happy humans and 3 tired spaniels
A perfect place for both humans and dogs. If you love Gwynver Beach it’s a great location and only 5 mins by car to Sennen (or a 40 minute beautiful stroll along the coastal path). Trevedra Farm shop only one field away for supplies. A book collection to keep you busy for hours/days/years. Amazing space for the dogs in the garden. Lovely local neighbours. A week we won’t forget. Thank you.
Perfect for a feel-good holiday!
We just loved our stay here! The house is wonderfully equipped for a homely holiday. The area is just so peaceful and really beautiful. The beaches are stunning with great walks from the doorstep. Fabulous all round experience - we'll be back for sure!
Surf and dog walking
We’ve visited the area before and booked this property for its location, within walking distance of Gwenver beach. The property is modern, spacious with everything you need for a relaxing break regardless of the weather. We will be back.
We loved our Christmas week at New Forge, very stylishly but comfortably furnished. It’s an area that we know incredibly well so no surprises for us there, just lovely to have such beautiful Cornish beaches and coastline right on the doorstep.
Thank you Tanzi and delighted you enjoyed it and hope you get to return again soon!
These gorgeous cottages are just a short walk from the beautiful surfing beach of Gwenver, which is a quieter beach around the corner from popular Sennen Cove. The busy towns of St Ives and Penzance are both a short drive, and some of the best beaches in the country are nearby.
If you're into walking, cycling, surfing, you're a twitcher, art lovers or just looking for a great self catering holiday should consider The Cornish Way for your next break in West Cornwall.
It's designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and makes an amazing location for family holidays or romantic breaks all year round.
The mining areas of Cornwall are UNESCO World Heritage sites and offer an insight into the life of our ancestors.
This countryside inspired such authors as Daphne Dumorier, Rosemund Pilcher and more recently Patrick Gale. The art colonies nearby are famouse from such great as Barbara Helpworth, Stanhope Forbes and even Mark Rothcoe.
The modern cottage was completed to a high standard in 2011 and offers every comfort, whereas The Old Dairy has all the charm of a traditional Cornish cottage.
We have properties sleeping two to eight, or up to 17 if you take three! Each offers everyone enough space to have their own quiet time.
If you plan your shopping well - or have it delivered, you might not even use your car for the duration of your stay.
