What our guests say...

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


This was our 3rd visit to Vellandreath. It was by far our best holiday ever! Sheldrake is incredible we will be coming back for many years. We have found our little peace of heaven in this valley. We simply all LOVE it! x

We have been lucky to have spent many happy times at Vellandreath over the last 10 years. The area has been lovingly cared for, and for this reason, makes it a very special place. Can't thank you enough!


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!


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.

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...

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!

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


This is a lovely cottage with stunning views over the bay. Not for those who might be terribly unsteady on their feet but the position is magnificent.


A wonderful get-away-from -it -all location. The five children loved exploring the dunes and surfing. The dolphins visit to the cove on our last night was an extra special treat. What a wonderful week! Diolch yn fawr iawn.

These houses are in the most perfect setting with fabulous views of the bay and the hillsides. Sheldrake is characterful and pretty with gardens looking out at various angles. We were lucky with beautiful weather which meant we could spend many hours on the beach with the dogs. Brian and the guy with tractor were really helpful, welcoming and friendly and we have everything we needed for a perfect week


An outstanding property in an outstanding location. Brian the caretaker was always available if you needed him ( helped when my son had left the lights on his car on overnight and had a flat battery ). The house is well appointed, great kitchen with large table for family mealtimes, super lounge with great views of the beach. We usually take an extended family holiday abroad so I was not sure how my suggestion of Sennen was going to work ( I used to come to Sennen as a child), well need not have worried they say it was up there with the best and are asking when we can come back.

I rented Sheldrake with a party of 8 (there were two cancellations at the last moment). We had a great time. We fell in love with the cottage and beautiful views of Sennen Beach immediately. The cottage was neat and tidy and had all the facilities we needed. If and when we return to the UK on a similar trip, I will definitely want to stay there again. Thank you.
