“A little piece of heaven . . .” That’s how the local postman has described Vellandreath, a lovely and hidden corner of West Penwith in Far West Cornwall overlooking the wide sweep of Whitesands Bay, Sennen.

Well-appointed in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – a haven for botanists, wildlife enthusiasts, beachcombers, climbers, ramblers and watermen – this delightful holiday cottage in Cornwall by the sea is set in the privately owned, unspoilt 8-acre Vellandreath Valley in Sennen, by the beach, bordered by a stream and sand dunes offering spectacular panoramic sea views all year round.

Converted with flair and imagination this quiet and magical setting is only accessible on foot down the sandy beach path from Sunny Corner Lane, Sennen, Cornwall.

 

Castaways is a south facing former net loft and is snugly set in the dunes, only 250 metres from the beach with its own sun-trapped garden, bordered by a stream, enjoying spectacular views over Whitesands Bay, Sennen and Sennen Cove, with distant glimpses of the Isles of Scilly.



What our guests say...

We loved Castaways! What a perfect cottage in a glorious location. The cottage is well equipped and atmospheric with a lovely garden. We’re walkers and with the coastal path at our doorstep, we could walk as far as we liked with the most spectacular scenery...

David Sykes

We had a weeks stay in Castaways which we found fantastic. The cottage was tremendous and the staff extremely helpful. We will certainly be visiting again. Many thanks to all at Vellandreath Cornish Cottages.

Lynne Clayton

We enjoyed a splendid week at Castaways, although one of the few Vellandreath properties without a sea view from the living area the fantastic garden with amazing views of the bay more than makes up for it...

Karen Charles

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...

Tony, Hilary, Tom and Lisa

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.

A Petersen

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...

Georga

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

Mellie Buse

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...

Susie

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

G Farmiloe

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...

Kate

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.

Trevor

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...

Maria

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

Pippa Hawes

As ever, a wonderful stay and plenty of sunshine to boot! Everyone involved with the cottages so friendly and helpful. Looking forward to returning soon. Thank you.

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...

Maria

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...
