Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Sennen, Cornwall, England
“A little piece of heaven . . .”
That's how the local postman has described Vellandreath Valley, 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.

Approached down winding granite steps to a small slate patio garden...

Nice cottage, cramped but OK for two for a few nights, could not imaging staying for a week. Difficult to see the sea from the conservatory unless you sat on cushions and steep hill for access, not suitable for buggies or those with limited mobility....More

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry but surprised you found Cat's cradle to be cramped - We feel it is a very good sized space for two people and much larger than average being set over two floors with a generous, well proportioned...More
