What our guests say...

Fantastic stay for our 25th wedding anniversary, great location, beautiful beach, and fab cottage. Really good communication from booking to after care. Brian the caretaker was amazing helping us with our bags and giving us a lovely bottle of wine, thanks Brian, we will definitely be back.

I came down here for a week for my birthday with my partner and even though the weather was unseasonably cold and wet (the week before had been a scorcher!) we had the most wonderful time. We certainly weren't going to let a few days' rain spoil our holiday in this beautiful part of the world! Sandpipers is the most beautiful, tastefully-decorated cottage we've stayed at in the 20 years we've been coming to Sennen Cove...


We had a wonderful 12 days at Sandpipers. We were blessed with perfect weather which made our dream "old-fashioned" beach holiday dream a reality. The location is perfect with great views of Sennen Cove and lovely walks along the coastal path...

Michael Durrant

A stunning location for a blissful beach holiday. Whatever the weather, there was always that amazing view and we enjoyed some of the most fantastic sunsets staying at Sandpipers. Property itself is cosy but well equipped...


Absolutely stunning holiday home with equally stunning views and to make it even more special I proposed to my partner in the perfect surroundings. Brian and Peter were both very helpful and it all made for a perfect holiday .

Phil foster

I have visited several of these beautiful cottages before with my family and all of them are wonderful with their own personality and charm. My boyfriend and I decided to try Sandpipers this year and it did not disappoint! The picture window gives the most incredible views out to the beach and sea...

Alex Gardner

We had a lovely time once again, and we had fabulous weather too, sometimes there's nothing better than taking in the sea view from the decking or living room! Rupert our old English sheepdog wishes he could live there!

M Vale

Another wonderful week at Vallendreath,this time at Sandpipers. We were blessed with good weather,and the views are magical,and I had a great time painting,whilst David walked the dog and played golf at St Just...

David and Diana Holt

We love staying here, perfect location and cottages maintained to a very high standard. Set on the coastal path with extensive grounds, it is perfect for dog owners and for a relaxing break. We have always had a warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble...


Perfect stay at Sandpipers. We loved it and will come again :-)


This s an amazing location for a holiday which has to be seen to be believed. Sandpipers has everything that two people need for a relaxing vacation. 

Gary Carter

We spent a wonderful vacation in Cornwall. A super region, a homely cottage and absolutely friendly people. Thank you for the wonderful time. We will come again.

Frank Pyritz

Had another great week in these cottages. Sandpipers has lovely views out to sea and is just the right size for two people and a dog.....The cottages are not far from Trengwainton Gardens which is NT and is a must, we enjoyed a couple of visits there with the dog who loved it...

Mr D Jenner

Just a short line to let you know what a wonderful time we had staying at Sandpipers.There is only one word needed to describe our stay and that is PERFECT ! We will be back again soon. Many thanks to the team at Vellandreath Phil & Jane

Phil & Jane Channing & Hugo the dog

Thank you for another great holiday at Sandpipers. It really is a bit of paradise and a beautiful place to relax and unwind. We hope to return again next year...

Jill and Lynda

Another excellent stay in vellandreath cottages. Sandpiper bigger than Basking Shark where we stayed last year both have beautiful views. Our dog Susie thinks she has found doggie heaven and so do we.


Our second year at Vellandreath Cornish Cottages and just as lovely as the first time. Sandpipers has beautiful views out to sea and is a very comfy cottage (we stayed in Little Petra last year which was also great)...


This is a lovely cottage. It is cosy and beautifully equipped. It really has everything we need and of course the most beautiful view of the bay. The cottage and all the others are presented with great style...
