Sennen Cove has a pretty fishing harbour and an important Lifeboat Station being situated near the treacherous waters off Land's End and only about 30 miles from the Isles of Scilly.

St Just, a small rural town on the north coast is approximately 4 miles away is steeped in mining history. Geevor Tin Mine which is a World Heritage Centre was the last working mine in this area and is now a very interesting museum. All around the north coast are vestiges of mining history including many old engine houses and stacks, graphic reminders of Cornwall's rich industrial past.
St Just itself also has some shops and several pubs and places to eat. The famous Minack open-air theatre is very close to Sennen, also Porthcurno and the Cable Station Museum which gives a fascinating glimpse into early world wide telecommunications. The town of Penzance is only about 8 miles away on the south coast where you will find plenty of shops and places to eat together with all manner of leisure activities including the local ferry service and helicopter link to the sub tropical paradise of the Isles of Scilly.
