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...

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...

Luke

Always a wonderful stay in this “little piece of heaven”. A year is never complete without our fix of Vellendreath & Sennen.

Claire, Kent

Beyond expectations, very picturesque, very kind and helpful caretakers on arrival, during the stay and on departure. As good as it gets for an English get away.... dont forget your wetsuit!

Jenny

Great location to stay to enjoy this part of the country. Very well maintained and thoroughly enjoyed the walks locally. Very cosy accommodation and loved using the log fire.

Stephen legg

Wow what an amazing stay we had! We only had a short Monday to Friday break but it was absolutely perfect! The cottage was perfectly presented and well equipped and was lovely and clean...  Would highly recommend and would definitely go back in the future

Liz & Stewart

We had an amazing time in such a lovely place and will definitely book another break away at the basking shark, but next time we will stay longer.

Ben Compton

We had a fantastic week here. The view from the cottage window was amazing, I so enjoyed watching the sun set over the sea. The cottage is so well equipped and the little garden was perfect...

Catt

We spent another fantastic week at Shelldrake- great cottage, amazing views, beautiful Cornwall! How many places allow you to walk from the house to the beach with the sand between you toes ? Thank you.

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.
