“Wonderful ideally located accomodation for visiting Cornwall”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This was our 4th visit to Driftwood.

Driftwood has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It's light, airy and modern. The garden is a good size with a great gas BBQ for enjoying a lovely alfresco meal in the sunshine. It has an extension/conservatory at the rear, two bathrooms and a large open plan kitchen/dinner with all the facilities you'll need. Beds have memory foam mattresses, so you are guaranteed a comfortable night. There was a delicious sponge cake waiting for us, just what we needed with a cuppa after our journey down and there was a lovely little hamper for our pooch full of goodies!

There is a shop on the site which is ideal for groceries and stocks local produce. We always organise a Sainsbury's online shop to deliver but guaranteed we always forget something!

Driftwood is ideally located approx. 3 miles from Padstow and about 1 1/2 miles from St Merryn's centre. A visit to Raffertys Wine Bar and the Cornish Arms is a must, the food is great and not too expensive. It has a great pub that serves food also (The Farmers Arms), Chip Shop, Bakery, Chinese, Newsagents and a few more restaurants and other amenities.

Thank you Sally for a wonderful stay once again!

“Fabulous , didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Driftwood is the perfect base from which explore the seven bays.
It is extremely well supplied with everything needed for a really relaxing holiday. We had 4 teenagers and two dogs with us who loved it . We have already booked to return at least twice more!

“A beautiful, spacious, welcoming home from home”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is our third year of holidaying at Driftwood, and we have already booked our stay for next year! It really is home from home - you will want for nothing, it is spotlessly clean and perfect in everyway possible. The living area is spacious, light and airy; there is a gorgeous, excellently equipped kitchen, a very relaxing conservatory and four really good sized bedrooms. We have four children, three of whom are teenagers and there is plenty of room for them to lose themselves! The bungalow is ideally situated for all the local beaches, or for exploring Padstow or Newquay - a fantastic base. Thank you Sally & Stef for another wonderful holiday, full or happy memories - really looking forward to our next stay.

“Driftwood a fantastic bungalow to stay in.”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in March 2015

This is a fantastic bungalow to rent, that's why I keep renting it and have down for approx 5 years. Its been beautifully furnished and is very spacious and has a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer for your use, which is ideal when you have many children.
Its great that your aloud to take your dog along as well. The garden is enclosed by a small fence, and there's a BBQ for outdoor use.
There are 7 beaches that are with in a 5 min drive of the bungalow. All are great surf beaches and your dogs are aloud on them through out the year to. There are plenty of coastal walks, or your prefer a touch of shopping Padstow is not far away either. Its a great base thats quite central allowing you to go of exploring Cornwall in all directions.
