Sleeps 2 people over 1 bedroom – Holiday Cottages in Cornwall by the Sea

            “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, next to 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.

This open-plan studio cottage has stunning sea views, exposed granite walls and a slate-style floor with underfloor heating.

A perfect place to relax and watch the world go by – and perhaps even a basking shark !


• Stable door to a cosy living space with stunning sea views, exposed granite walls and a slate-style floor with underfloor heating throughout for a warm and cosy stay whatever the weather.

• Onto a fitted kitchen area looking out to sea.

• Step to double bedroom.
