“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.

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. Castaways is a south facing former net loft and is snugly set in the dunes, only 250 metres from the beach. Castaways has its own sun-trapped garden bordered by a stream with views out to sea over the beach of Whitesands Bay, Sennen with glimpses of The Scilly Isles on a clear day. Slate steps wind down to the front door through terraced gardens with pretty flowers and lawned borders offering seats to soak up the ambience of Vellandreath Valley and the Atlantic Ocean. Castaways' open plan living area and bespoke conservatory brings the 'outside - inside' assuring a unique stay. Castaways' exposed beams, high ceilings and granite walls grant it immense character and charm. Castaways has underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. Open Castaways' tri-fold glazed patio doors off its high ceilinged conservatory and the inside living area magically merges with the garden. This excellent design feature will enhance your living experience further. Castaways has a spacious open plan living / dining room with a freestanding beech kitchen area complete with 'touch sensitive' hob, convection oven, micro-wave and belfast sink. The pretty double bedroom with antique brass and iron double bed has rugs on slate floors and an ornate antique wardrobe. Leading from this high ceilinged sleeping space is the en-suite tiled wet room with a power shower, basin and lavatory. From the open plan living area stripped pine stairs lead to the first floor. there is a family bathroom and a further sleeping area with a double bed, high beamed ceilings, original sash window giving way to sea views with another feature window overlooking the garden and stream. Granite walls compliment lime-waxed floorboards surrounded by attractive furnishings in this rustic but contemporary fisherman's cottage setting. More
