In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – a haven for botanists, wildlife enthusiasts, beachcombers, climbers, ramblers and watermen – this delightful holiday cottage is 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 and enjoying its own personal garden its quiet and magical setting is only accessible on foot down the sandy beach path from Sunny Corner Lane.

Tresillian is the most perfectly appointed coastal cottage. It looks beautiful; has everything you need to enjoy your stay, and is a joyful walk through the dunes to the magnificent sands at Sennen. My whole family adored it!
