What our guests say...
Me and my family fully enjoyed the week we stayed in Petra. We all liked the cottage very much. The place is an ideal spot to start walks along the coast or to go down to the wonderful beach. The boys took surfing lessons down at Sennen Cove and loved to be in the sea...
This was our fourth stay at Vallendreath, with three teenage children too. The weather and surf were good, which always helps. But Petra is/was a lovely cottage to stay in, the BBQ in the garden with the sun setting to the west - was great...
Splendid stay. What a location! The house is both very comfortable and well appointed. Lots of stuff to do and enjoy. All were very friendly and helpful, especially Brian.
A wonderful week. Brian and Peter terrific. All very special and lovely...
Another wonderful week at Vellendreath. Everything we could ask for from a holiday cottage in the most incredible location. Human and dog friendly! There's no doubt we'll return.
Beautiful location & tastefully restored without losing the unique character of the property Perfect for couples with young children looking to explore the area & the Cornish Coastal Path or beach & surf lovers...

It really is a fantastic place to stay! The location is impeccable and the house, while compact, works really well and has all the conveniences to make a very special and memorable holiday! Thank you!
Thank you for the wonderful stay in Petra Cottage. It's such a lovely place surrounded by a beautiful landscape. We loved the view from our Garden directly to the sea!

We returned to Vellandreath after 20 years absence and how I wish we had not left it so long! Such a beautiful spot! In 1996 we were two and now we are four (sons 4yrs and 11yrs) and we all had the most wonderful time...
