What our guests say...
Whitebreakers was just perfect for us. Lovely garden with sea view and sea views from most of the windows in the cottage. We had 4 lovely days of sunshine in October. Brian was very helpful as usual and his dog Sidney was very lovely !
A lovely romantic break in an idyllic spot nestled in a valley overlooking the bay. The dog absolutely loved his holiday - we were just there to supervise! We wouldn't hesitate to come back...
weather shone on us, up early to get to the beach before restricted times with the dog, we all enjoyed the surf, numerous walks along coastal paths and through the dunes to Sennen for supper - can recommend the Old Success good atmosphere and food. Basking shark, compact but perfect for two, well equipped, we cooked breakfast most mornings and sat eating in the pretty garden area ideal for watching the surf, although there same view from sofa area if weather was bad...

A delightful cottage in a stunning location with everything you could need for a relaxing break. Brian was helpful and charming...
So I think that despite the weather this is a lovely spot .The beach is very close , you can hear the sea and the walks are fabulous . The garden is very pretty and fairly secluded .
Staying in White Rose with friends was very special for all of us. As we came down from the car, our hearts leapt up on seeing the cottages nestled in the valley and that view beyond. We loved being that close to the sea and in such a peaceful location. The cottage itself was very compact, especially upstairs. A lot of thought had gone into making optimal use of the space. Downstairs was comfortable, light and lovely to relax in with a very homely feel to it...
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. Day trips to St. Ives and to see the Mine in the area of Pandeen were wonderful and spectacular at the same time. We had a geat time - thank´s to all the nice people involved!
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.
Sheldrake is very special and I can't think of a more beautiful place to stay, a good cardio workout up the hill each day too! The sea view, amazing gardens and access to Sennen and the beach made our holiday perfect. Attention to detail with good quality kitchenware kept our cooks happy. Everything about the cottage was well done and with an artistic eye for quality...
Tresillian is the most perfectly appointed coastal cottage. It looks beautiful; has everything you need to enjoy your stay, and is a joyful walk through the dunes to the magnificent sands at Sennen. My whole family adored it!
We have stayed a few times now at Tresillian,it is the most beautiful house with a lovely interior and the garden is fantastically secluded, peaceful and filled with beautiful shrubs and flowers. We love coming here, it is the most relaxing break. Only a few minutes from the beach with lovely views, even if it rains it is a joy just to be inside and enjoy the tranquillity! Brian is super helpful as always, we have booked already for next year!

This was our first time in the Studio, the rest of the family (6 adults ) occupied Tresillian, but we thought we would have our own space . The Studio is beautifully furnished and a delight to stay in.The large room is very light and has s small kitchen which is well equipped .It is next door to Tresillian, so very convenient for our purpose. The garden is lovely and secluded and only a very short distance from the beach...

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...
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...
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.

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.
