Guest Comments

"The location is excellent for either spending the day there or using as a base to go elsewhere. The cottage was clean, cosy and had everything you would need. The scones were very well received, Thanks."

Allison, September 2020

"Beautiful cottage perfect for two. Great being almost on the beach and great location for touring the coast and inland Cornwall. We went in February half term so the local tearoom was closed . Plenty of places open further afield . Would highly recommend. Our host was lovely and we really appreciated the local produce welcome pack. Thank you."

Rachel, May 2020

"Lovely cottage, owners and a cream tea welcome. Would recommend as a place to stay."

Jean, March 2020

"Beautiful cottage in the perfect location. We stayed over new year and had great weather too. The cottage has everything you need, bed is very comfortable and plenty of room for clothes. The deck area was a nice addition and would be lovely in the summer. Lovely hosts and the welcome pack and flowers were a nice touch. We spent two days without using the car as lovely coast walks in both directions directly from the beach. A lovely base to come back to after a days walking. Would recommend."

Michelle, January 2020

"Love here .... come and visit as and when we can. ! Best holiday ever. We love it"

Angela, December 2019

"This is great property for a couple who want to get away from it all, a bolt hole that has everything you could want with easy access for coastal walks.It is within 30 meters of a fantastic beach and an ideal base to explore the rest of Cornwall."

Andrew , November 2019

"We had such an amazing holiday in such a lovely cottage! From the welcome pack to the sea view, everything was absolutely perfect. Thanks so much - already recommended you to my friends and family and we will definitely be booking in the future!"

Olivia , October 2019

"This was an excellent bolt hole from which to explore Cornwall and in good weather you have the choice of the beach (literally 1 minutes walk away) or your deck from which you had a lovely view of the sea.I felt very welcome from the off with advanced communication from Tracey the host ensuring she would be there to meet me. This followed up with a lovely welcome pack and flowers. She was on hand to answer any queries to back up her informative folder within the actual cottage which itself had all you could want or need to make your stay a real home from home. Driftwood is a cottage for 2 but Tracey also showed me around the stable which is a cottage for 4 also done to the same high standard as Driftwood. You can see by the comments in the visitors book that I am not alone in giving this location a glowing recommendation"
