Walk - Sennen Cove & Land's End
3.0 miles (4.8 km)
Sennen Cove Car Park - TR19 7DA Sennen Cove or Land's End
Moderate - Generally flat with one long climb from Sennen to Mayon Cliff. Some sections are hard surfaced and others are more uneven. The alternative return leg which uses part of the National Cycleway Route 3 is moderately level and well-surfaced and can be followed as a separate walk of approximately 1 mile. Trampers, wheelchairs and pushchairs can use this route. See the detailed description at phototrails.org.
A walk with spectacular views and both wildlife and historical interest. You can vary the length and difficulty of the walk to suit your needs as there are three options for returning to Sennen. The abundance of wildflowers makes this a brilliant walk in spring, when shags and cormorants can be seen offshore and the cliffs are noisy with nesting fulmars, kittiwakes and guillemots. In autumn the flocks of seabirds passing in strong winds sometimes include a rare Sabine's gull and the stubble in the newly-harvested fields is alive with linnets and buntings feasting on the fallen seeds.
A little way beyond Land’s End is Nanjizal beach which is dog friendy and worth the extra distance. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog friendly beaches and pubs.
