“A beautiful place to stay in a lovely location”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in May 2014

This place is fantastic and I highly recommend it- and indeed have done since our stay in May! It is beautifully decorated and so well equipped, clean, relaxing- with a lovely conservatory and garden to the rear. It is in a fantastic location- within a short drive to seven different beaches and the lovely Padstow.
Such a happy holiday had by all- cant wait to come back again!

“Great service, great location to surround areas, excellent value for money!”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Sally and her husband run a lovely property. We were welcomed with complimentary cakes and they both went out of their way to help us if we ever needed anything.

The location is very convenient. As the price was so good, we were expecting it to be run down and/or overcrowded. It was neither and indeed very pleasant. The property is about a 10 minutes drive from anywhere that you'd want to visit which is great if you are staying for a few days and want see what the area has to offer.

Will recommend, thanks guys.

“Great location”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Great location for a cycling trip around this beautiful part of Cornwall. The cottage is a lovely place to stay with all the home comforts you would expect. We were able to keep our bikes in the cottage. The site also has a club house which was ideal for an end of day pint.

We have stayed here many times,it is an ideal base for what ever type of activity you are looking for,sit and watch the clouds go by in the airy conservatory, beach days with the kids, cycling,walking, and eating in the many good restaurants, all of these things are close by, but what make this so special is returning to Driftwood as it is so spacious, comfortable,with all the mod cons you require - a real Home from Home.

“Driftwood Bungalow - A Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Driftwood is quite simply a great place to stay it's in a great central location, very comfortable and we felt at home straight away. The Bungalow was clean and clearly well-maintained to a high standard.

The open plan kitchen area is fantastic, great for socialising and cooking with the family. The Kitchen is well equipped and shops are close by to stock up on food and drinks. If you don't want to cook there are some great local eat-in or take-away options, with restaurants that were more than happy to deliver to the Bungalow as well.

The information pack in the Bungalow supplied us with some great places to visit during our stay, covering many different areas of interest and we were spoilt for choice. The beaches are very close by with stunning sunsets and truly some of the best beaches in the UK!

We wanted a relaxing holiday and that is what we got :) It is worth every penny spent. We had a wonderful time....and we will be back!
