What our guests say...

We loved our week at Vallandreath - just perfect for immediate access to two beautiful beaches (one dog-friendly all day, the other before 10 and after 6). A great location if you want to just leave the car parked up for a week and enjoy what's on your doorstep - coastal walks, bodyboarding, sunsets, a view that warms your heart and they even do gf fish and chips in Sennen Cove! Cats Cradle was ideal for us as a couple with our small dog...

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!

I have stayed at Vellandreath Cottages twice now and will most definitely be booking again. From booking to staying and leaving it was 5* service. We were met by Brian who is the caretaker. Very friendly and kind. Nothing was to much trouble. The cottages I've stayed in once again 5*. Very clean and had everything we needed. Stunning views! Thankyou to all who have once again made our stay very enjoyable...

Beautiful location stunning scenery cottage is compact and cute


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.


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.

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...


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!


The cottage was absolutely perfect, although small it was perfect for just two of us. We chose the location because of the beach and we managed to surf everyday. It was a nice walk around the cove to the nearest pub and restaurant. I would highly recommend and will definitely come back again!


We didn't want to leave, I think that says it all! The cottages are in a magnificent location which is wonderfully serene and only a short walk from the beach. Sennen Cove itself is just around the corner and easily reached via a sandy path. Cat's Cradle is comfortable and very tastefully furnished and decorated. We'll certainly be staying here again... Everyone involved with Vellandreath is helpful from the moment of booking to leaving on the last day.

A fantastic spot. No need for a car to get to the beach and the coastal path. Thanks.

We have returned to Vellandreath again, 14 years after our first visit, and it was even more beautiful and serene than we remembered... A week away from it all, in our cosy cottage full of character, amongst the dunes and the flowers, by a clear brook where surely the Fairies live, why did we leave it for so long? We have already booked for next year!

Gorgeous setting for a holiday- truly one of the most glorious places we've ever stayed. The accommodation of cats cradle is a small space, but it has been done up brilliantly utilising the space very well. We would most certainly return as it was a heavenly week in a magical part of Cornwall. The beaches are spectacular and the surfing opportunities perfect.

These were our most beautiful holidays we ever had. The cottage was so lovingly decorated and the landscape was so great. We've never enjoyed before such magnificient view. We will soon come back to this lovely place.
