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.

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.

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...


A wonderful week. The cottage was delightful and the location is second to none. We're coming back.

Castaways exceeded all expectations, with it's peaceful setting and stunning coastal views. The well equipped cottage offers a great layout with comfort, warmth and oodles of character! Three adults and two dogs arrived feeling tired but left feeling relaxed and refreshed. The only negative was that four nights went by far too quickly!


A delightful cottage in a stunning location with everything you could need for a relaxing break. Brian was helpful and charming...

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.


Great holiday cottage. very clean and amazing location will definitely come again. Anyone with dogs that love to run and explore won't find a better place than this.


Our second visit after we loved the cottage and the area so much in spring this year. The weather was excellent - really warm for October. A few very helpful surfing lessons from the Sennen Cove crew. Our dog was ecstatic to be back. And house as neatly and nicely laid out as before. Thank you.


stunning cottage in a stunning location. Cottage was beautifully decorated and furnishings were of a high standard.

Castaways was even prettier and more beautifully turned out in real life than in its photographs. The conservatory captures the sun and opens out to create plenty of space. The facilities were excellent. The beach, the pub and the shop are all within very easy reach. We (including our dog) loved it there and are already planning our return.


This must be our 14th stay to Vellandreath - there's a reason we keep coming back!! Castaways is by far our favourite cottage - the gardens with the stream running through are simply stunning. Only problem is, it gets booked up so far in advance! Brian the caretaker is helpful and friendly yet allows you the privacy to have a wonderful relaxing holiday. I would recommend Vellandreath to anyone ... Sennen is a magical place.
