“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.

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. With its own path leading to the shore which lies just 150 metres away, this detached, single-storey, former fisherman’s cottage and boathouse enjoys magnificent views and has been attractively furnished throughout. The south-facing garden, with three separate terraces, is a positive sun trap with Echium and Cornish palms enhancing the tropical feel to this wonderful coastal location. Spacious, very comfortably furnished living room with leather sofas, ‘Victorian’ wood-burning stove, slate-style floor with rug, picture windows and large, glazed door to terrace with glorious views over the bay to Sennen Cove and distant glimpses of the Isles of Scilly providing an 'outside - inside' living experience. Separate fully equipped traditional farmhouse kitchen/dining room with slate floor overlooking the patio and beach. Cloakroom with toilet. Two double bedrooms with superb views, each with en-suite shower room and toilet; one with Victorian brass double bed and one with ornate antique double bed. Two further prettily decorated bedrooms, each with single bed and built-in bed. Family bathroom with shower attachment and toilet. Further small and very compact bedroom with L-shaped built in bunk beds (2ft 6in wide, recommended for children only). Complimentary night storage heating throughout property.More
