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.

Attractively furnished in ‘Victorian’ country style, this comfortable cottage has a spacious beamed living/dining room with

granite walls, slate floor with rugs and ‘Victorian’ wood-burning stove in inglenook fireplace.With sea views to the south

from its setting in the dunes 200 metres from the beach, this former fisherman’s cottage has its own walled garden with a bridge over the stream.
