Sleeps 2 People over 1 Double Bedroom – Holiday Cottages in Sennen 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.

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.


Completed to a high specification with its own first floor balcony and patio, this exceptionally light and comfortable

property is set in the heart of Vellandreath valley with wonderful sea views.

• Access to this cornish cottage is by a wooden bridge in true nautical style.

• The sheltered decked balcony has superb sea-views and is perfect for al fresco dining and sundowners.

• The open plan living area has wonderful sea views from the large floor to ceiling picture window – superb for watching the sunset.
