Mayon Farmhouse

Mayon Farmhouse B&B / Guest houses

Mayon Farmhouse in Sennen, west Cornwall is a 4 star family run guest house, which was built in 1851 and was originally a large mixed farm with land reaching out towards Lands End and down to the cliff tops at Sennen Cove. Once used as a meadery it has since been converted into a spacious and comfortable home with a wealth of original features.
