What our guests say...

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...

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 .

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.

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...

Alex Gardner

We had a fantastic few days celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. White breakers was gorgeous and cosy just what we wanted, the views are amazing. We will definitely return

Paul & Fi

Wonderful, magical Vellandreath and Sennen Cove. All our woes melt away the minute we arrive. There is only one downside - leaving! We count the days until we can return.


Beautiful setting and view with great walks for the dog. The cottage is cosy and comfortable. Very relaxing. Would love to return...

Our second visit after we loved the cottage and the area so much in spring this year. The weather was excellent - really warm for October. A few very helpful surfing lessons from the Sennen Cove crew. Our dog was ecstatic to be back. And house as neatly and nicely laid out as before. Thank you.


We had a really lovely week at Little Petra in October. The cottage was beautiful, well equipped with everything you may need! The situation was perfect for us! It was stunning scenery, the little terrace and garden was well maintained and very pretty! It was just what we needed for a bit of rest and recuperation. Good for our souls! What a stunning place! Thank you so much.

What a charming cottage in a dreamlike environment. A little piece of heaven is not exaggerated. We have spent wonderful days in Cornwall and would love to come back. The helpful and friendly people of the vellendreath co. Have rounded off our holiday. The weather was fantastic. Greetings from Switzerland bruno eva and marianne with the 2 labradors Ed and Willow

Marianne Sprecher

stunning cottage in a stunning location. Cottage was beautifully decorated and furnishings were of a high standard. 

Pippa Hawes

Such an amazing week; weather was unseasonably glorious, and the location was breathtaking. Afraid i didn't join the brave souls in swimsuits (in October!) actually taking a dip, but the coast and sunshine and stunning accomodation was utterly restorative. Will definitely be back. (N.B. do try to visit the farmers market in Sennen if you are around on Tuesdays - amazing cinnamon buns).


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.


Loved White Rose cottage staying in a traditional style Cornish cottage but being so close to the sea backing onto the sand dunes was lovely. The fact that you could walk the dogs straight from the front door no road was a definite plus for us. Cottage nicely furnished and not lacking anything that we need ...
