Thank you…we had the most amazing stay at Sandpipers. Paul gave such a friendly welcome and the cottage was just lovely. You were also so accommodating and helpful in moving my initial booking from March to May due to lockdowns...

I enjoyed my stay so much despite the weather, that I have booked again in September

Pauline HT

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...

Angela Ballard

Absolutely delightful cottage and surroundings excellent customer service from start to finish thank you

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...

Dale Baker

Yet another lovely stay in this beautiful valley. Accommodation perfect to come back to after being on a wonderful beach and exploring this unspoilt part of Cornwall. Perfect holiday for both humans and dogs...

Jo and Andrew

Guy Thomas

We had a fabulous stay. The whole experience at Vellendreath with no cars, the views and the quality of the cottage was exactly what we were after...


A welcome break again in lovely Sandpipers, the 3rd time and our 6th visit to Vellandreath cottages. What better than watch the sunset from the huge window...! See you next year.

Comfortable, well-furnished and a truly idyllic setting!

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandpipers. Fabulous location

Steve Abbott

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...

Mr & Mrs Lowe

Absolutely perfect location for a break. Complete relaxation for us and the dog. Ideally placed for long walks, beach fun and surfing. We loved it and can't wait to return. Thank you!


Sandpipers was absolutely perfect for us, fabulous view of the sunset and easy access to the beach, loved it, thank you.

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...
