Description

“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, next to 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.

This open-plan studio cottage has stunning sea views, exposed granite walls and a slate-style floor with underfloor heating.

A perfect place to relax and watch the world go by – and perhaps even a basking

The England region

Vellandreath Valley is a beautiful private estate by the beach situated within West Penwith (the Land End peninsula) which is the southernmost area of England, and the most picturesque part of Cornwall. It is rich in dramatic beaches, wooded valleys, moorland, rolling farm land, and hidden coves; much of it is designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and warmed by south westerly breezes from the Azores, cold weather is rare. The sea is crystal clear, jade green, and a comfortable swimming temperature into late autumn. There are dozens of beaches on the Lands End peninsula, and they are amongst the most unpolluted in Europe.

Sennen

The Post Office is opposite the Costcutter Villages store and is situate on the A30 Lands End Road, Sennen just 1 mile away. Sennen Cove Stores are located in Sennen Cove opposite the Lifeboat House. Fish and chips are available both in Sennen and Sennen Cove (1 mile) Sennen's Farmers market is held every Tuesday morning at Sennen school, just half a mile away. Sample the delights of (very) local farm produce and a spectacular array of arts and crafts. Tesco, Sainsburys and Morrisons are situated on the A30 in Penzance 8 miles away. Further Shopping is also available here. If you dont feel like cooking then why not let someone else do it for you? Sample the delights of the Atlantic Ocean and Westcountry Farms prepared by some of the great restaurants, bistro's and pubs in the area. The Beach Restaurant is a must and just a short inspiring walk across the dunes or beach. Offering specials, a main menu, BBQs, Pizza, beverages & Cocktails this Restaurant really is right on The Beach. The Old Success is Sennen Coves local. Here you'll good pub food with outside seating offering great views across the bay enjoying a situation just meters from the sea. Surrounded by fantastic coastal countryside just a few miles down the road The Gurnards Head is a venue to head for to achieve quality dining. Alternatively pop in for a pint ! The Meadowy is a medieval themed family restaurant has been the kids favourite for years. Funny thing is, once they've grown up they keep coming back ! Performance and Arts: Local Art can be found at The Round House gallery. Walking: This is superb walking country. Breathtaking views, eye watering sunsets and more flora and fauna than you can shake a walking stick at. Vellandreath Valley is the perfect starting point for any stroll, walk, ramble or hike. Venture south and one can walk over the beach or dunes, into Sennen cove, on to Lands End, Logans Rock and the South Coast beyond. Head north and one finds Gwenver Beach, Ayr Point leading to Cape Cornwall, on to Guarnards Head and as far as the Badlands if you're brave enough. Of course you can always head inland and explore the moorland, woods, nearby ancient settlements and prehistoric relics. Always be prepared: with sensible clothing and footwear a must, water and mobile phone a given and a bar of chocolate a treat. An ordinance survey map may come in handy too if you're on a serious mission. Golf: Cape Cornwall's superbly located golf course is just 6 miles away. Walking the Cape Cornwall golf course you could easily be forgiven for thinking that it was one of the oldest golf courses in England. Yet it was only designed in 1990 by Bob Hamilton, who also designed courses in Scotland and Singapore. It is a truly natural course, ranging over both farmland and cliff tops and presents the golfer with a mix of challenging holes, and stunning views. Challenging is indeed the most often used word when golfers return, especially on windy days! Without doubt Cape Cornwall should be on every golfers lifetime itinerary. Once ticked-off you'll want to come back again and again. A par 69 challenge, cliff tops, undulating fairways, dry-stone walls - known locally as Cornish hedges - and even ancient mine-shafts to negotiate! The course is open and playable 364 days a year. Fishing: Whether you're a serious sports fisherman, competent angler, seaweed catcher or crab hunter there are a wealth of spots and options to choose from...Right in front of Vellandreath Valley you can try your luck beach casting for Bass or Mullet. To the South the breakwater at Sennen Cove serves up Pollack, mackerel and the odd conga eel. To the north hike to Arys point and enjoy the fruits of the open ocean. Of course if you are in possession of a hardy sea kayak and (and handle yourself in the open ocean) the with the right kit, the possibilities are endless. Boat trips are available from Penzance whether its a family mackerel fishing trip or a deep sea wreck expedition for the big stuff. Just because the Atlantic Ocean is 200 meters away doesn't mean you can go course fishing. There are plenty of perfect places you can settle down, cast a fly or wait a while to watch your float sink. Whatever you choose, bring your catch back to your Cornish Cottage in Vellandreath Valley and cook it up on your complimentary Barbecue. Surfing: Here at Vellandreath Valley we have one of natures best playgrounds right on our doorsteps: the beach. Of course where there's a beach there's the the sea and in our case we have the Atlantic Ocean brushed by the warmth of the Gulf Stream. Sennens Whitesands Bay is a Blue Flag beach and is well known for its quality surf, rich in surf history and folk lore. The conditions vary according to time and tide but waves can be found for all abilities whether novice, intermediate or expert. Dont worry, if surfing is not for you then one can always take advantage of the sheltered end of the bay and swim between the lifeguards red and yellow bathing flags when the waves are up. Children have an absolute ball in the surf and the local surf schools offer great coaching to get them up and riding the rollers though of course just frolicking in the waves and body boarding will be excitement enough for some. If youve already got the surfing bug then this is the perfect place for you. If youve yet to try surfing then, in our opinion, theres no better place to start… If you fancy a change from the beach life or the kids get itchy feet why not have a day out at one of the many attractions in the area. Whether is its mining heritage, delightful gardens, museums or theme parks theres something for everyone…

Other activities that can enjoyed by your own arrangement are cycling, yoga, rock climbing and much, much more !
