“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.

 

Tresillian is surrounded by its own beautiful large terraced garden which nestles in the cliff face and is only 200 metres from the beach enjoying spectacular views over Whitesands Bay and Sennen Cove, with distant glimpses of the Isles of Scilly.



What our guests say...

We had a really lovely holiday in Tresillian. The cottage is very comfortable, and there was plenty of space for six adults and 2 dogs. Garden was large, private and beautiful. The location is fantastic, just 5 minutes walk from Sennen Cove beach and 15 minutes walk to a dog friendly beach...
