Driftwood was everything that we hoped this cottage would be. It was clean, warm and welcoming. Fantastic location with walks from the doorstep. The train was also so useful as we didn’t want to use the car everyday. The cottage was so well equipped with instructions on how to operate the electrical appliances to hand. The hot water and heating had been set perfectly for our needs. The Badger pub opposite served us well with marvellous food when we didn’t want to cook ourselves. Plenty of space for 4 adults to live together comfortably. Thank you for making our weeks holiday in Cornwall so memorable. ??Cornwall

Great location especially if you have a dog; the beach is a short walk and one of the few in this area that allows them. Spacious, bright property for six. Handy for using both buses and trains. The Badger across the road has a lovely garden and does great food.

No welcome pack on arrival (although stated in documentation one would be provided), out of date food/milk left in the fridge/freezer (indicating that it hadn't been checked/cleaned after previous occupant), the bedroom to the back of the cottage, quilt cover was covered in black dog hairs required washing (indicating that the bedding had not been changed from the previous occupant), clearly states in documents that occupants must ensure that pets are kept off the beds. The BBQ had been left dirty and was unfit for use. There were some minor issues, there was no hot water to start with after ringing the contact number in the information folder the woman said she had not looked after the house for over a year, after looking through our own documents we then found a contact number we were told they were busy with change overs after making a further phone call this was resolved. No batteries in DVD remote, dryer condenser left full of water.

We're sorry that you were so disappointed with the property. Obviously you have had some contact with our office directly during your stay to report the water issue and again after your stay to discuss cleanliness. We're glad we could help with the water at the time, but as explained by the Property Manager, it was very difficult to investigate your other points when you had already finished your two week holiday - we always urge guests to let us know about any concerns during the stay so that we can put things right there and then. We have shared your feedback with both the cleaning team and owners, and our Property Manager will be visiting to check the areas you've highlighted. Tanya, Customer Support

Perfect for long beach walks with the dog
Mrs Rosier December 2015
Great cottage, nicely furnished. Large lounge and kitchen for entertaining. Perfectly positioned for beach walks and if you are feeling lazy you can take the train along the beach! If you don't want to cook the pub is opposite which serves great food but no need to worry about any late night noise as it's very quiet. Would recommend without any hesitation We will be back!

The impression you get with Driftwood, [semi-detached property] looking on the small side, but get inside, more like a tardis, plenty of room and great bedrooms, we would stay there again.

Lovely holiday in a fabulous cottage, very comfortable, beautifully decorated, well equipped, modern but homely. Great location in easy walking distance of a vast, beautiful and dog friendly beach, great dog friendly pub opposite, perfect. If we could move here....we would!!

Driftwood was a fantastic property to stay, it was exceptional. We were a family party of 6 adults, it has to be the best self catering property we have ever had the pleasure to stay. We cant express enough how spacious clean and comfortable this property was. The towels and bedding were lovely! The property has been furnished and equipped to a very high standard and we treated it with the respect it deserved. We managed to park 3 small cars and use the local train into St.Ives which was convenient and fun. We will definitely be staying again!!
