What our guests say...

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandpipers. Fabulous location

Steve Abbott

Everything was as described .A1. All ready booked for next year,but a bigger cottage. My wife described LEWIS as the POLDARK of Vellandreath - a very helpful member of your team. See you all in 2019.


Lovely week of sun (mainly) in Sennen, staying in Sandpipers at Vellandreath. Cottage was fantastic, great view down to the sea. This was our 3rd visit and we plan to be back.

A unique location above a stunning beach which is ideal for families with children, surfers, sun worshipers.....yes there was sun! The cottage is small but has everything you need and the view from the large picture window is amazing. A 10 minute walk along the coastal path which passes the door takes you to Sennen Cove with it's amenities...

This was a special week in a special place. Sennen Beach is fantastic and dramatic, and the cottage cosy and beautifully done up. Our young (and loud) kids absolutely loved it, and we soon stopped worrying about their nuisance value to neighbours as the property is so well insulated. We hope to be back very soon indeed to explore more of this remote and romantic part of the world. Thank you!


Had a lovely week at Penrose - quaint cottage with cool bunk beds. Thanks to Brian for his help and humour.


A great place for rest and relaxation. Exquisite views. Beautiful sunsets. A 1-minute walk from a perfect, white sandy beach. Friendly staff with outstanding luggage service. Property finished to a very high standard. A perfect hideaway for our peaceful holiday and to sit and write music.

Everything was perfect. From the extraordinary lovely furnished studio to the help whenever we needed something. The view from the garden ...we could not get enough of it. Also the location is just great. We had a great time.


We had an amazing week at Sheldrake. The cottage was lovely, gardens beautiful and the view absolutely stunning. Thank you - a perfect and timely break to celebrate with family!


Had a wonderful holiday in Vellandreath. It truly was a little piece of heaven. The studio was very comfortable & met all our needs. A great location for visiting this beautiful area. However you do not need to drive at all as great for walking and an open top bus takes you to St Ives, easier than trying to park there!!... Brian is great at looking after your luggage .


Absolutely perfect location for a break. Complete relaxation for us and the dog. Ideally placed for long walks, beach fun and surfing. We loved it and can't wait to return. Thank you!


Sandpipers was absolutely perfect for us, fabulous view of the sunset and easy access to the beach, loved it, thank you.

Lynn Moor

Great location, great house. A big thanks to Brian, what a completely relaxed and yet attentive chap. We look forwards to returning someday.

Steven Sale

Beautiful little cottage in a beautiful location which was a perfect place to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Was so peaceful just listening to the sea. Walk to the pub was only 5 minutes across the dunes.... we would love to go back. Many thanks

Paul Stead

Wonderful place to enjoy the nature!!!

Monique and Thomi

WOW! What a fantastic cottage and what a fantastic area. We spent a glorious week at Tresillian in early June. The house is beautiful and perfectly equipped. A short walk to the idillic beach and a nice short hike to the dog beach to the east. Brian was super helpful and carried all our luggage into the house. The dogs LOVED it here. All the cottages look lovely, you'll not be disappointed.

The Hamiltons

We had a short 4 night stay at the studio at the end of June. We were met by Brian who was so welcoming. The studio is small but had everything we needed and so quiet and comfortable and is in a glorious location. We had fab walks in both directions to Porthcurno and took in open air theatre at amazing minack. Then to Cape cornwall. Getting the open top bus back from each which was a thrill. We were blessed to see a pod of dolphins in the bay...


What an idyllic location! Sennen itself was just beautiful and the location of Cats Cradle was just the icing on the cake. Well appointed, compact, quiet and secluded. Just lovely.

Anita Turner

Spent a happy week in this lovely cottage. The amazing sea views enabled us to watch dolphins in the bay both from the lounge area and the decked terrace outside...... Our 6th visit to Velandreath and hopefully not our last.

J & L

My family and myself enjoyed staying in the lovely cottage named Sheldrake.We would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday,in beautiful surroundings.The peace and and quiet is difficult to find in this ever increasing frenetic world. Thank you so much to everyone on the team that helped to make our stay particularly special.

Ben Hadlow

Wow, what a beautiful cottage with stunning views! We spent a fabulous week in your lovely cottage (weather certainly a bonus!). So relaxing and peaceful. Cottage had everything we needed...  We will definitely book Girl Annie again for my 50th birthday next year!

Debbie Chappell

A wonderful place to stay. The cottage is warm and cosy with a wonderful view of the beach. Days while away very quickly; walking on the beach and looking at the waves! Thank you.


Idyllic location. Superbly furnished cottage and also excellent support from caretaker Brian. Cant wait to come back for next holiday.
