What our guests say...

A beautiful location. We have been visiting Sennen Cove the past 20 years. This cottage was definitely our favourite accommodation.


Petra was a comfortable cottage with surprisingly good fertility’s. log fire was a nice touch. Good walk to beach to watch the surfing and the seals. Good week all round.

Gary Cooper

A great location for a relaxing holiday break. I will be back.


Lovely cottage with everything you could need, all cleverly designed to make use of the space. The kitchen from which you can see the beach is well equipped and the garden is a lovely suntrap. In the evening the fire kept the place warm and cosy...

Sally Jackson

Just perfect in every way!


Great cottage, great caretaker, easy booking, very friendly everybody

Thomas and Christine

We heard about Vellandreath from my sister who stayed in 2018 She had rebooked for 2019 staying in Girl Annie and we decided to join her as we all have dogs. Walking down from the car park we knew we were in for a treat...


Had an absolutely brilliant stay! Cottage is cozy and spacious. Log burner was a delight during chilly evenings once the sun had gone down... beach paths take you directly from cottage to beach/pub. Word to the wise do a supermarket shop before you arrive and have everything along with your luggage taken to the cottage by Brian...


As always, a pleasure to stay in your cottages. Brain was there to take our luggage down to the cottage. The cottages are very well equipped, clean and very comfy. Love staying here. Back again and again and again...

Michele & Richard

Beautiful cottage with stunning views and coastal walks. If you crave peace and quiet this is the place to recharge your batteries. Perfect for surfers. Would definately rent any of the cottages here as they all looked beautiful...

Maureen Little

What an amazing Cottage! Very warm and cosy and perfect location for the beach, and who would  have thought, surfing in November! A big mention to Brian who was lovely.


Me and my family fully enjoyed the week we stayed in Petra. We all liked the cottage very much. The place is an ideal spot to start walks along the coast or to go down to the wonderful beach. The boys took surfing lessons down at Sennen Cove and loved to be in the sea...


This was our fourth stay at Vallendreath, with three teenage children too. The weather and surf were good, which always helps. But Petra is/was a lovely cottage to stay in, the BBQ in the garden with the sun setting to the west - was great...

Brian Redpath

Splendid stay. What a location! The house is both very comfortable and well appointed. Lots of stuff to do and enjoy. All were very friendly and helpful, especially Brian.


A wonderful week. Brian and Peter terrific. All very special and lovely...

Karen Cowan

Another wonderful week at Vellendreath. Everything we could ask for from a holiday cottage in the most incredible location. Human and dog friendly! There's no doubt we'll return.

laurence kaye

Beautiful location & tastefully restored without losing the unique character of the property Perfect for couples with young children looking to explore the area & the Cornish Coastal Path or beach & surf lovers...

Steve & Sharon Illingworth

Stayed at Vellandreath four times previously, absolutely stunning! Spent a lovely new year here, love this place so much, such a peaceful stay, didn't even mind the weather! Just kept the fire on, very tranquil! will be back!

Sue Trevarthen

We fell in love with Petra the moment we arrived and booked to come back again before we left. The area is outstandingly beautiful and the cottage far exceeded expectations with comfort and attention to detail...

Beverley and Paul Hutton

It really is a fantastic place to stay! The location is impeccable and the house, while compact, works really well and has all the conveniences to make a very special and memorable holiday! Thank you!

McDonnell Family

Thank you for the wonderful stay in Petra Cottage. It's such a lovely place surrounded by a beautiful landscape. We loved the view from our Garden directly to the sea!

Micaela and Family

We returned to Vellandreath after 20 years absence and how I wish we had not left it so long! Such a beautiful spot! In 1996 we were two and now we are four (sons 4yrs and 11yrs) and we all had the most wonderful time...
