Well appointed and 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, and offers you spectacular panoramic sea views all year round.
Attractively furnished in ‘Victorian’ country style, this comfortable cottage has a spacious beamed living/dining room with granite walls, slate floor with rugs and ‘Victorian’ wood-burning stove in inglenook fireplace.
With sea views to the south from its setting in the dunes 200 metres from the beach, this former fisherman’s cottage has its own walled garden with a bridge over the stream.
Petra has a spacious beamed living/dining room with granite walls, slate floor with rugs and a ‘Victorian’ wood-burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace.
There’s a separate galley kitchen with wonderful sea views to inspire your cooking.
Upstairs you’ll find a double bedroom with an ornate antique iron bed, and two further cosy bedrooms, each with a single bed and a built-in bed (one with 2ft 6in beds). There is one bathroom with an over-bath shower and toilet. All rooms have rugs on stripped pine floor.
The coastline is full of beaches, ranging from safe bathing beaches to secluded coves to wild and rocky places. Some are easily accessible and some less so. Although there are several traditional seaside resorts for family visitors, the area also attracts walkers, naturalists, artists, and anyone seeking a quiet haven, with amenities close by. The sea is crystal clear, jade green, and a comfortable swimming temperature into late autumn.
St. Ives is a short drive away and is long popular as an artists’ colony, with its pretty stone cottages and narrow cobbled lanes through which to wander. There are many galleries, including St Ives’s Tate Gallery.
The town of Penzance (8 miles) has a wealth of amenities for visitors, including museums, cinema, golf, tennis and riding, as well as many good shops and restaurants.
In the summer months, day trips by ferry, plane or helicopter are available to the romantic Isles of Scilly.
