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.

Little Petra has its own private, south-facing walled garden, bordered by a stream. This attractively furnished cottage just 150 metres from the beach commands superb views over Whitesand Bay from both it’s bedroom and living area.


• Open-plan living/dining room with ‘Victorian’ wood-burning stove, slate floor with rug and cosy cottage-style kitchen area with sea views.

• Victorian cast-iron spiral staircase to pretty double bedroom with ornate antique iron bed and sea views.

• Bathroom with shower attachment, toilet and stripped pine floor.

• An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Vellandreath has No Vehicular Access = No cars = No Traffic = Peace & Quiet.

Little Petra is only accessible by foot down the sandy beach path from our private car park off Sunny Corner Lane, a distance of 250 metres.
