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.

Price: 15.00

Quantity:


The Cove Diary 2 commences where the other left off but has been some time in the backroom being turned into a book - the title alone took a team of PR guru's a year to think up. Unlike the first book, this one is a monument to good value, containing more words, more pages and even some pictures, oh, and a map of stunning detail and accuracy. Alright, it is a few pennies dearer but in the intervening years we have been through a recession and several increases in the price of beer.

If you like your humour dry, or even humorous, the wit cutting and the descriptions of Cornish loveliness vivid, then go buy another book altogether. The Cove Diary celebrates none of these literary essentials and flatly tells you about survival on the edge of sanity in a place where people come because there is no further place on land to go. There are departures including the Cornish ability to dig holes and how, in truth, it was the Cornish who dug the Suez Canal, the mysterious disappearance of a Nepalese male voice choir and how Hans Christian Anderson came about the ideas for his famous fairy tales.

Seriously, this book is about 1.4kg and will not fit through your letter box. It will still be delivered by the Royal Mail shortly before the posties go on strike after realising what they are carrying.

The book will be signed by the author, unless you express otherwise, and special (short) messages or dedications can be added, just let me know in the comments section.

COMING SOON: Do not fancy hefting this might tome or do not have a sherpa to hand? This book will be available as an e-book shortly.
