About Zennor

This hauntingly beautiful village stands starkly above cliifs that in parts are over 300ft above the sea. From here there are magnificent view of the fabulous cornish coast, and should you chance to walk the headland early in the morning, the view of the sun rising over the sea, is quite spectacular.

The village itself is quaint, and most of the houses and cottages in and around Zennor are soundly built from granite. It is like most cornish villages, alive with myths and legends. D.H. Lawrence, the writer, lived in Zennor for two years. There are stories that surround both Lawrence and his wife, that are still told today. It was thought that they were both spies and that Frieda, his german-born wife was related to the flying ace, the Red Baron. These rumours were proved to be untrue but time has not stopped thier circulation, nor stilled speculation.

Zennor has a lovely 12th-century parish church. The church of St.Senara contains many treasures among which is 'The Mermaid Chair' a medieval carving depicting a mermaid holding a comb and mirror. Legend tells that the mermaid was attracted to the church by the singing of a chorister, who followed her down to the sea, they were never seen again but villagers say that if you stroll the beach on a summer night you can sometimes hear the couple singing.

Zennor is but a short distance from St.Ives and is on the lovely South West coast path. This is an area that abounds with enchanting little coves and bays, it is a magical area that offers great enjoyment to visitors.
