    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    “A little piece of heaven . . .”

    That’s how the local postman has described the Vellan Dreath Valley, a lovely and hidden corner of Cornwall overlooking the wide sweep of Whitesand Bay. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – a haven for botanists, wildlife enthusiasts, beachcombers, climbers, ramblers and watermen – these delightful holiday cottages are set in a privately owned, unspoilt 8-acre valley next to the beach, bordered by a stream and sand dunes offering spectacular panoramic sea views all year round. Converted with flair and imagination to the same high standards of comfort, each of these cottages enjoys its own personal garden. Their quiet and magical settings are only accessible on foot down the sandy beach path from Sunny Corner Lane.

For the first time in our adult lives we decided to take a holiday at home! With the weather being so good and also the addition of a little person to the family we decided to stay in the UK for the summer.

I came across this cottage through trip advisor, it looked beautiful so I took a punt and booked it there and then.
We stayed at Castaways cottage for the last week of August. We were greeted by the caretaker Brian who took our luggage in a little tractor down to the cottage. He was very friendly and gave us lots of local area advice.
The cottage is situated in a valley that is not accessible by car. It is also not suitable for buggies and prams! This was a bit of a bug bare as the information on the cottage stated that its suitable for children of all ages. I'd have to disagree with that statement some what.

We arrived at the property and walked through the most gorgeous garden. We were blown away by how stunning it was. The sea was behind the...

If you are looking for a holiday cottage in a fabulous location then look no further. It truly is the “little piece of Cornish Heaven” described by others. The standard of accommodation was first-class with the property being very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Throughout our stay we found the cottage warm and cosy and it certainly wasn’t the warmest of weeks I can assure you!
Would we visit again? – you bet we will!

Management response:

Thank you for your comments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, from all of us in Vellandreath Valley, Sennen. more
