What our guests say...

As perfect as ever. Wonderful place, truly magical - and while it poured in the rest of the UK the sun shone.

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. Everything worked well, including the WiFi. Brian looked after us well, and much appreciated the lift up/down the hill, with our bags. All the family are planning the next trip, already...

Brian Redpath

We had a wonderful stay at Penrose Cottage. The overall standard of the facilities and cleanliness of the cottage was excellent... The location was perfect and we will certainly be holidaying with Vellandreath again...

Bridget Reading

Absolutely perfect bit of heaven- breathtaking location & cosy cottage which accommodated a large group. Lovely walk to Sennen for a bit of civilisation without having to get in the car & great walk to Lands End (even with the relaxed attitude to bus timetables on the journey back!). We'll be back!

We had a beautiful week at Tresillian. It is a lovely house with beautiful views from upstairs, private gorgeous gardens also with brilliant views and a marvellous standard of equipment. We were welcomed and seen off brilliantly by Brian who provided his usual high level of warmth and care throughout our holiday. Booking and payment were easily managed and went smoothly. As a family this was our fourth house at Vellandreath and they all have their own unique qualities...

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...


Wonderful stay at Vellandreath. The cottage was perfect for us - comfortable and well appointed, and the location is superb. I can't imagine a better place to stay in the whole area. Brian looked after us very well. We will definitely be back.

Helen & Nancy

Fantastic. Beautiful cottage, fab views and looked after so well by the lovely Brian and his lovely pup Sid.

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. The cottage itself was perfect for the two of us (hopefully next time with our small dog)! Would certainly recomend these cottages to anyone who wants a quiet break...

Never has a piece of advertising blurb been so amazingly correct. Definitely a "little piece of heaven" we loved staying at Cats Cradle many thanks to all at Vellandreath Cornish Cottages and in particular, Brian who helped with ferrying the luggage up and down! Thanks again!


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. Very comfortable bed and underfloor heating. Would recommend


Another perfect week at Vellandreath. The weather was kind to us so we had beautiful walks on the beaches and along the coast...such a stunning area. Sheldrake was, as always, lovely and Brian was welcoming and helpful as ever. The cottage environment is just perfect...we didn't even think about going anywhere in the car for the first four days! We will return! Many thanks again


We stayed in Castaways on the first week in April. We were met by Brian the caretaker on our arrival who was very helpful. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, the garden was amazing, planted up beautifully. Lovely walk down to the beach, our dog loved running around sniffing out the rabbits and chasing her ball on the beach. Would definitely recommend this beautiful tucked away spot.


We had an absolutely perfect stay at Penrose. Brian the caretaker was wonderfully helpful and friendly on my arrival with two young children and the cottage was beautiful, cosy and well equipped. The location provided the perfect ,idyllic and secluded getaway we wanted . The beach was beautiful and the weather kind. Dave at the Sennen Surf Company and his team were wonderful with the children, relaxed and fun , giving them daily surf lessons which we booked with ease...

Susi Kemmis

Great holiday cottage. very clean and amazing location will definitely come again. Anyone with dogs that love to run and explore won't find a better place than this.


Gorgeous location, cosy little cottage, sea view from bedroom made it. Even in March the beach is perfect.


What an unbelievable great experience we had staying at Tresillian! Such a beautiful house, such a great location! Definitely coming back! Thanks and untill next time!

Petra van Gemert

Wonderful cottage, full of nooks and crannies, cosy and perfect for shutting out the world for a few days. February is the best time for solitary walks along the coast. We will come again next year.

Eric van Rekum

Magical Spot. Website doesn't do it justice. Had a great stay, even with storm Dora!


We stayed in Girl Annie in late January/early February, the views were stunning and the cottage was cosy...Would thoroughly recommend, children would love the bunk room, pleasant walk to Sennen Cove and the hospitable Old Success Inn. The First and Last Inn was also within walking distance. Vellandreath Valley is very special, we look forward to staying again,

Debbie Mould

Another fantastic stay at Vellandreath. Girl Annie cottage was perfect. A stunning view towards the sea, a short walk to the beach (our dog loved it!) and wonderful welcome from the staff. The cottage is very well equipped and beautifully decorated. We'll certainly be returning to Girl Annie very soon!

Gail & Dale

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

many thanks for once again a lovely stay in one of the nicest places on earth in these cosy cottages

steve and joanne hurrell

Had a wonderful week at Basking Shark with my husband and our little dog Booker. The cottage was in a beautiful location and the views from the lounge and kitchen windows was exceptional. The cottage itself was cosy and was equipped with everything you needed for your holiday..... We would like to thank Brian and Peter for their help and will definitely be back.

Sue Jackson

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. We visited in November and were a little worried about the weather (we were actually very lucky) but the amazing window allows you to be cosy inside and still enjoy the breath-taking views, whatever the weather! The cottage is so romantic and the perfect Cornish getaway for a couple...
