“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.

 

Sandpipers is a reverse level dwelling enjoying its own wooden bridge just 250 meters from the beach with spectacular sea views over Whitesands Bay, Sennen and the Atlantic Ocean.

As busy as Sennen was during this half term Sandpipers is ideal for a relaxing and away from it all break. Vellandreath's location offers great views and access to the beach below. The accommodation is clean and well maintained...

Dave & Emma

Sandpipers at Vellandreath is the perfect coastal bolthole for 2 we loved it! The unique completely glass gable end has the most wonderful view down the valley to Whitesands bay beach below. This Is wild and beautiful Cornwall at its finest...

Jackie Dean

A beautiful and stunning location. Sandpipers has a view to die for. Compact and bijou, but has everything you need for a couples hideaway weekend. Sennan village is just a 10 min walk up the coastal path with a lovely pub with excellent food...

Lovely week of sun (mainly) in Sennen, staying in Sandpipers at Vellandreath. Cottage was fantastic, great view down to the sea. This was our 3rd visit and we plan to be back.

Nic Riley

A great place for rest and relaxation. Exquisite views. Beautiful sunsets. A 1-minute walk from a perfect, white sandy beach. Friendly staff with outstanding luggage service. Property finished to a very high standard...

Lynn Moor

Wonderful place to enjoy the nature!!!

Monique and Thomi

Spent a happy week in this lovely cottage. The amazing sea views enabled us to watch dolphins in the bay both from the lounge area and the decked terrace outside...... Our 6th visit to Velandreath and hopefully not our last.

J & L

Wonderful cozy cottage for two people with incredible view of the sea. Highly recommendable for a stay in the winter because of the underfloor heating. The owner has taken care to furbish each cottage individually using many reclaimed items such as driftwood and art from local painters and designers...

Eric van Rekum

Fantastic stay for our 25th wedding anniversary, great location, beautiful beach, and fab cottage. Really good communication from booking to after care. Brian the caretaker was amazing helping us with our bags and giving us a lovely bottle of wine, thanks Brian, we will definitely be back.

Janet Jennings

I came down here for a week for my birthday with my partner and even though the weather was unseasonably cold and wet (the week before had been a scorcher!) we had the most wonderful time. We certainly weren't going to let a few days' rain spoil our holiday in this beautiful part of the world! Sandpipers is the most beautiful, tastefully-decorated cottage we've stayed at in the 20 years we've been coming to Sennen Cove...
