Holiday Cottages Sennen: A Little Piece of Heaven

Check availability
& book now
“A little piece of Heaven . . .” That’s how the local postman has described Vellandreath Valley in Sennen, a lovely and hidden corner of South West Cornwall overlooking the wide sweep of Whitesands Bay and Sennen Cove.

In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – a haven for botanists and wildlife enthusiasts – these delightful Holiday Cottages in Sennen are set in the privately owned and unspoilt 8 acre valley of Vellandreath (also known as Vellan Dreath) bordered by a stream and offering spectacular panoramic sea views all year round. 

Located by the sea, next to the beach and converted with flair and imagination to the same high standards of comfort, each of these holiday cottages in Sennen enjoys its own personal garden. Their quiet and magical settings are only accessible on foot down the sandy beach path from Sunny Corner Lane.

Locations for Holiday Cottages in Sennen, Cornwall simply don’t get any better than this…

What our guests say...

Thank you for a wonderful week at Castaways, It was just perfect.

S Fraser

Our second stay at Vellandreath and would recommend the peacefulness and privacy of this cottage. Clean and bright, the cottage is a great for a relaxing break away. We enjoyed our morning and late evening walks on the beach and managed a walk over to Lands End one afternoon...

Sue

The cottage itself is cosy but very well equipped. It was perfect for our stay! The location is just beautiful right in the middle of the valley with the beach below. Sandpipers has a courtyard below and a decked area by the front door - we sat here most evenings watching some beautiful sunsets...

Claire

Our stay in the Petra cottage was just lovely. The most beautiful location. The cottage was well equipped, clean, comfortable and there were some nice touches for our arrival. All very well organised with the luggage pick ups...

Sophie

Great location within easy reach of the beach and coast path. The well equipped cottage conversion was kept in good condition and had a lovely garden with seaview. Helpful and friendly hosts.

Peter Fuller

We had a great time, the accommodation, location and especially staff were great. The location, gardens and landscaping make the place really magical and everything is really well setup, the cottage has a lovely homely feel.

Gav

Who thought a week in February could be so amazing?! Sandpipers had everything we could possibly need despite it being so compact.It was warm and all the lovely guys that work there keep it and the grounds looking really good...

Ruth

What a fantastic spot. We felt thoroughly at home from the moment we arrived and never wanted to leave and go back to reality. We are counting the weeks until we come back in February. Thankyou!

Bryony Henderson

We found a treasure! We were delighted with all aspects of Castaways. Beautiful cottage, beautiful location. A fabulous place to spend Christmas. Everybody was very helpful and all our needs were met. We will definitely be returning.

Karen Grundon-Orrin

Tresillian was a perfect off-season location; quiet, apart from the pounding surf, well equipped, set in beautiful quirky gardens and just a short walk through the dunes from the beach. Hope to be back for another winter stay.

John Griffin

We had an absolutely fantastic holiday in Penrose. The cottage was beautiful and the location was absolutely stunning! Paul was very friendly and helpful during our stay too. We all (including our dogs) absolutely loved our week...

About Our Cornish Cottage Holidays

Vellandreath Valley and its Cornish Cottages are “Dog Friendly” being situated on the fabulous Whitesands Bay (Sennen Beach) and next door to Gwenver Beach, a beautiful spot allowing dogs year round.

Land’s End is only about a mile further along the glorious coastal footpath, while in the opposite direction the path leads to the dramatic scenery of Cape Cornwall.

All around this coast are countless pretty and secluded coves to explore.

Inland, this wild and unspoilt corner of Cornwall, is dotted with prehistoric relics.

The local inn, award-winning Surf Beach Bar, Round House Gallery and the attractive little fishing harbour of Sennen Cove are only 10 minutes’ walk across the vast expanse of the sandy beach, which is perfect for swimming, water sports and great for kids with the assurance of the RNLI Lifeguards.

If you are lucky, you may see dolphins, spot the odd seal or basking shark.

Rock climbing is popular on the cliffs and headlands. This is superb walking country and great for cycling or mountain biking.

Sennen is a mecca for surfing with countless options for all levels of ability. There are great Surf Schools and equipment hire close by in Sennen Cove and on the beach.

The nearby little fishing village of Newlyn & picturesque Mousehole harbour are popular subjects for artists.

At Porthcurno (4 miles), is the open-air Minack theatre, in a spectacular setting on the cliff top with the sea and setting sun as its backdrop.

The town of Penzance (8 miles) has a wealth of amenities for visitors, including museums, cinema, golf, tennis and riding, as well as many good shops and restaurants.

A short drive away is St Ives, long popular as an artists’ colony, with its pretty stone cottages and narrow cobbled lanes through which to wander. Here there are many galleries, including St Ive’s Tate Gallery.

In the summer months, day trips by ferry or plane are available to the romantic Isles of Scilly.
