Cove Diary's Guide to Sennen Cove

Cove Diary's Guide to Sennen Cove

This guide is written for the broad-minded visitor who does not mind a bit of humour with his or her history and a fairly tongue-in-cheek approach to being guided about the little huddle of houses clinging to the cliff known as Sennen Cove.

It is the best complete guide on Sennen Cove in existence, mainly because it is the only complete guide on Sennen Cove in existence, although neither of those comments may be true as the author did not check first.
About The Author
The author springs from a short lived Cornish coal mining dynasty which spurned the advice of experts that the smart money was in tin. Subsequent forays into inshore whaling - "you only need to catch one instead of millions of they pilchards" - and carrot farming - "people will have 'em in a pasty, you see" - were also met with derision and dismal failure leaving the author no choice but to earn a living writing books, which is why he runs a shop in the Far West of Cornwall.

Our Products

At The Old Boathouse you will find an extensive range of groceries for your immediate needs.

Where possible we stock local Cornish produce.

Vegetables and fruit are available on a regular basis including bananas, apples, oranges, lemons and salad items and Cornish Early new potatoes from Trevere Farm in Sennen when in season.

Many of our fresh local products you will find cheaper than the big supermarkets and equal to if not superior in quality.

Meat

Much of our meat is sourced from an excellent local butcher. In the fridge we will generally have smoked back and home cure bacon.

In the freezer outside the main part of the season we will have rib eye steaks, chicken supremes, locally made burgers, mince steak and fantasic local sausages.

We also stock West Country ham and turkey and sausages in the fridge at busy times.

Dairy

We supply Cornish full fat, semi-skimmed and skimmed milk all in litre sizes. Sorry, we do not have the space for smaller bottlles. Our butter and milk comes from Trewithen Farm and mature cheddar from Davidstow.

Our Cornish clotted cream is supplied by Rodda's, who else?

Our eggs come from just down the road at Madron and pop out of the shell with nice big yellow yolks. You will never want eggs from anywhere else again.

Bakery

Bakery

Our pasties come from Prima Bakeries in Scorrier who use local meat and vegetables. The pasties are made by hand by bakers who take care over their products. We sell both traditional steak Cornish pasties and a cheese and vegetable variant which is suitable for vegetarians.

Our sliced bread comes from the same bakery and is available daily.

Throughout the season we also stock saffron cake, hevva cake, scones and other cakes from Prima's extensive range.

At busier times half baguettes and bloomers, cooked on the premises are available. Outside the main season we are happy to bake these to order.

Cornish Preserves

Cornish Preserves
