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.

Our Sennen cove accommodation is a short drive away from 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.
