If your looking for a cosy base then this is ideal , it has all you need for your break . Its not a massive but big enough for two, especially if your out all day . Ray the owner was absolutely lovely . He has so much knowledge of the local area and made us feel so welcome.

Cosy little retreat for 2 people. Well equipped and comfortable. Homely beach chalet feel with lots of personal touches. Well thought out. Good location. Very friendly and informative host with extensive local know.edge. Definitely worth a visit.

The Driftwood was an amazing little property. Perfect for a couple or someone wanting to stay in Cornwall on their own. The owners were very very friendly and so welcoming. We loved staying there. It was perfect for us and very well located. I think we will definitely consider staying there again.

We had a lovely stay at this charming rental. It was well prepared, clean, prettily decorated and well thought out so that the compact size did not feel cramped in any way - and we understood perfectly well from the description what we were renting. Nice view, comfortable beds, excellent bathroom, heating just right, etc.

Thank you to our hosts Pat and Ray who could not have been more friendly and welcoming, giving great advice about where to go locally that we would probably not have figured out on our own. We may well return.

September 2019

Brilliant location for nearby places to visit. Very comfortable accommodation with fantastic sea view over Tintagel. Ray is a fantastic guy. He is the tourist information bureau, and nothing is too much trouble. Just take a fold able clothes rail if like us you take a lot of outfits.

August 2019

Perfect location

August 2019

Lovely cottage. Very clean. Lovely decor with attention to detail. Would recommend.

June 2019

Peaceful, relaxing accommodation in a prime location for some of Cornwalls best scenery. So good we have been to Driftwood several times in the past 3 years.

September 2018

“Driftwood” is the most beautiful little house in a gorgeous area of Cornwall , what made it extra special was Ray and Pat’s hospitality they went out of their way to welcome us , recommend places to eat and even looked after our dog Tilly while we went out for an extra special meal. The views are outstanding and also beautiful sunsets I would highly recommmend Driftwood to stay and was the perfect size for Nige and I and Tilly our pooch thank you Ray and Pat you are lovely people we will be back !

September 2018

This a very nice property. We were made very welcome on our arrival, the property was clean, well-equipped and very snug. The bathroom, with modern shower, bidet and plentiful hot water was better than we had dared hope in such a compact chalet-style holiday let. The wifi reception is strong. Many, many small but thoughtful touches - such as fresh milk in the 'fridge, a cream tea for two awaiting us - added to our enjoyment. Hints and tips on local amenities proved most helpful.

I would recommend 'Driftwood' to anyone seeking a quiet, enjoyable holiday in this most pleasant part of Cornwall.

September 2018

Perfect place to stay for two. Good safe, parking area. Driftwood was cosy, clean and had all you needed for your stay. Highly recommend for the views and sunset too.

August 2018

Ray and Pat, made us very welcome and were very knowledgeable about their area, perfect break away with your best friend ??

June 2018

The 'Cottage' is just a glorified shed! It's more like 'Glamping'

We sorry that Driftwood wasn't quite your 'cup of tea'. It is a wooden building, although one that is beautifully furnished to emphasise the seaside location and still offer a comfortable and well-equipped base. We do appreciate that not all of ouf guests will be looking for this quirky element, so we do show the property very clearly in our photos to make sure that everyone has a good idea of what to expect. We are disappointed that it wasn't for you, but we'd be very happy to help you find a slightly more conventional property for your next stay. Tanya, Customer Support

We passed a wonderful time at Driftwood. The location is perfect to explore Cornwall. The owners, Pat and Ray, were so helpful and friendly. They provided us with helpful information about the area and were always up for a little chat. We felt very welcome and would definitely recommend the chalet. It is well equipped and very comfortable. In a minimum of time one feels like home. Thanks for everything.

October 2016

Top quality holiday Home, lovely friendly owners Ray and Pat

September 2016

We have been twice this year and booked for next year. Hospitality excellent, located in a good place to visit lots of places very close to Boscastle & Tintagel. The theme of Driftwood is very Cornwall & beach inspired. Can't recommend this enough but better be careful it will be booked up when we want it.

September 2016

Small is beautiful, all very warm and clean, decorations were great. A most comfortable stay. The owners were most helpful and a pleasure to meet.

April 2016

Exceeded our expectation, it was like a quirky beach hut, well equipped, comfortable. Pat and Ray were excellent hosts. When we arrived there were scones, cream and jam waiting for us. Pat and Ray told us of lost of places of interest to visit. Comfortable beds, nice fluffy towels, superb shower. Lovely part of Cornwall. Izzy the dog soon made herself at home. Couldn't fault it, totally relaxing holiday. Our 'cup of tea'. Loved it

March 2016

Driftwood exceeded our expectations the attention to detail was excellent. We were welcomed by Pat and Ray who showed us around and Ray was very informative on walks and places of interest even offering to pick us up if we got stuck out in the rain! There was a cream tea waiting for us which was delicious and Toby our dog was given a bowl of dog treats so he wasn't left out which we though was a really lovely thing to do. The Cottage has everything you need it is very warm and cosy with very comfortable beds - we loved our stay here it was really relaxing with lovely views would highly recommend to anyone.

July 2015

Lovely area, close to boscastle and tintagel, widemouth bay worth a visit and dog friendly too as were most of the places we visited

July 2015

We absolutely loved our stay at Driftwood. Ray & Pat were the most wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. They had lots of knowledge about the local area, places to visit and good places to eat.

July 2015

A perfect peaceful cottage. Small but beautifully formed. Will go again.

June 2015

If you want something that is sweet and quirky Driftwood is the place for you.

May 2015

Excellent holiday. Cosy cottage that is ideal for two people. Very clean and well laid out. The owners, Ray and Pat, live next door and their knowledge and advice were invaluable. They are also a great, friendly couple. Sometimes it's the small touches that make it an extra special holiday such complimentary home made scones and cream tea on our arrival and the home made soft furnishings that brighten up the place. I thoroughly recommend Driftwood.

May 2015

A fabulous retreat and a little gem perched in an ideal location to explore the beauty of Cornwall. Despite its small size, driftwood is luxurious and cosy, with fantastic views to the sea and evening sunsets. Pat and Ray were attentive hosts and ensured that we had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. We will return!

May 2015

The owners (Ray & Pat) made us very welcome and provided cream scones on arrival. They were very helpful and accommodating, a really lovely couple who helped make our stay more comfortable, thank you. A beautiful location we definitely recommend.

May 2015

Emphasize the size of the chalet. Compact would be a fair description.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review after your stay at Driftwood. We do say that the property is 'small but perfectly formed' and that it is an 'ideal retreat for two' - you certainly wouldn't have enough room to throw a large dinner party (although we do have lots of bigger properties if that's what you're looking for!), but we hope that you enjoyed your time in north Cornwall nevertheless and would come back again.

April 2015

Ideal crash pad for tranquility

March 2015

Driftwood was just like it was advertised as. We were not disappointed. It was well thought out and so cosy and warm. Very comfy. Will definitely be back. Pat and Ray are lovely people. :-)

December 2014

Warm and Cosy

September 2014

very friendly owners made stay excellent.enjoyed ourselves

August 2014

At first sight very small, but had everything we needed in well designed storage spaces. Warm welcome from both hosts; scones and jam (home-made), delicious and clotted cream. Easy access to coast and Tintagel and Boscastle.

July 2014

A wonderful cosy retreat which was well beyond our expectations . Exceptional Attention to detail. All in all " a little gem".

May 2014

A fantastic little retreat, cosy, warm and extremely comfortable. The furnishings and decor are lovely, all very tasteful!! The views and sunsets were amazing, this was a place we always looked forward to coming back to in the evening.

The owners Pat and Ray were wonderful hosts, although their own property is immediately next door we still felt that we had all the privacy we needed, but they were there if you needed them. All pretty perfect really, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return.

August 2013

The owner was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Homemade scones awaiting us were very nice too! Driftwood itself was a cosy retreat, small but with all the comforts and mod cons. Located so that you can easily get to other places along the Cornish coast and provided a good base for a rewarding holiday.
