What our guests say...

A beautiful and stunning location. Sandpipers has a view to die for. Compact and bijou, but has everything you need for a couples hideaway weekend. Sennan village is just a 10 min walk up the coastal path with a lovely pub with excellent food. You may want to book the luggage delivery service as the walk down to theses stunning cottages is steeper and further than you think. But well worth the effort...

Yet another lovely stay in this beautiful valley. Accommodation perfect to come back to after being on a wonderful beach and exploring this unspoilt part of Cornwall. Perfect holiday for both humans and dogs. As usual Brian and the team always on hand to help. The weather was magnificent for October. Worth taking pot luck and coming to stay out of season.Many thanks.

We had a wonderful stay in a lovely cosy cottage. Our small dog was overjoyed to be so close to the sea and loved chilling out by the fire at the end of the day


Stunning location and beautiful gardens - great to be sitting on top of the coast path and 2 minutes from the beach

We heard about Vellandreath from my sister who stayed in 2018 She had rebooked for 2019 staying in Girl Annie and we decided to join her as we all have dogs. Walking down from the car park we knew we were in for a treat. Petra is a very cozy cottage with a beautiful garden, sitting on the garden bench watching the sun set was magical We all had such a fabulous time we have already booked for next year same dates, same cottages Our dog Charlie insisted


2nd.visit as good as the first. A - 1 position for views. Brian on time to receive us at the car park & again on time as pre asked to help us depart. Look forward to next year. Thanks. JLH LMH BRYN MOLLY.


This is our third stay at Vellandreath and is still as magical as the first time we came back in 2004. We will be back for a fourth time! Perfect get away from reality!


Absolute slice of heaven. Second time for me, my young son and the dog. Cottage is perfect; peaceful, equipped with everything we need, perfect views. Couldn't ask for a more idyllic location. Love this place. Lots of v happy memories and we'll be back.


Amazingly situated. Nicely done out... It was worth the 8 hour drive...Great walks on the coastal path directly from your door!...Hope to come back!

Great stay at Basking Shark. Wonderful views. Perfect location for coastal walks and exploring local villages. St Just, Mouseole, St Ives all worth a visit. Small but ideal cottage with all you need. Brian a great help with anything you need.

Guy Thomas

We absolutely loved our weekend at The Studio. What a lovely space! Loved the interior. The cottages are so peaceful- falling asleep to the sound of the sea was the best. The garden is wonderful and a real suntrap! We surfed every day, visited the local pub and did some great walks with the dog. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

I have stayed at Vellandreath Cottages twice now and will most definitely be booking again. From booking to staying and leaving it was 5* service. We were met by Brian who is the caretaker. Very friendly and kind. Nothing was to much trouble. The cottages I've stayed in once again 5*. Very clean and had everything we needed. Stunning views! Thankyou to all who have once again made our stay very enjoyable...

Mrs Ball

We love girl Annie. The views are amazing. It has everything you want. Walking out in the evening along the beach after a meal is one of the pleasures in life.


Had an absolutely brilliant stay! Cottage is cozy and spacious. Log burner was a delight during chilly evenings once the sun had gone down... beach paths take you directly from cottage to beach/pub. Word to the wise do a supermarket shop before you arrive and have everything along with your luggage taken to the cottage by Brian. Then your all set!...


A wonderful week. The cottage was delightful and the location is second to none. We're coming back.

Mellie Buse

This was our 3rd visit to Vellandreath. It was by far our best holiday ever! Sheldrake is incredible we will be coming back for many years. We have found our little peace of heaven in this valley. We simply all LOVE it! x

We had a fabulous stay. The whole experience at Vellendreath with no cars, the views and the quality of the cottage was exactly what we were after...
