What our guests say...

Another fantastic stay in Castaways. We especially enjoy sitting in the garden, listening to nearby babbling brook, watching the sun disappear over the horizon and star gazing at night. Oh yes, of course, walking above the sea and beach as well. Thank you.

Another fantastic stay at one of the Vellandreath cottages. For us there's no better destination in all of Cornwall.


Castaways was a lovely cottage. We spent a week in Cornwall and loved the scenery and peaceful stay. It was rejuvenating and we had no issues with the cottage. The secluded area reminds me of the east coast of South Africa.

Loved staying at Girl Annie- the view from the windows was spectacular to watch the storms coming in- really windy for our week but the cottage was so cosy with the wood burner going- a truely wonderful experience !!

We had an absolutely marvellous time on this holiday, our dog was beside himself with the amazing walks he had on the deep sandy beach & in the sand dunes. We went out of season in November, as you can take your furry pals on the beaches then. The cottage was lovely with everything you could need, tho I would recommend stocking up in the Penzance supermarkets before arrival & then you can have it transported with your luggage down the very steep hill to your cottage...


We love Girl Annie for the views, walking from the door and the cosy interior.


Girl Annie...a beautiful haven to watch stormy seas and feel completely safe within the thick granite walls! Absolutely loved our stay thank you. The cottage is absolutely stunning and much thought has gone into making sure it has everything needed. The log burner was lovely distraction while we had a 3 day storm raging outside....

As usual a wonderful holiday. Peaceful, stunning scenery and beautiful cottage.

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.

Thomas and Christine

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!
