Mr Hickman September 2020
The owner was very helpful and ensured we all had a relaxing holiday. The Drift was exactly as detailed and the facilities with the pool etc much used. Hope to return next year!
Mrs Johnston August 2020
We really enjoyed our stay! Loved the owner’s dog Oscar, who entertained our children. Hot tub and pool were a real treat. We’d love to return next year!
Mr Lyons July 2020
An exceptional property in the perfect location to explore Cornwall. Nicely laid out and very well equipped. Hot tub is a real bonus. We were so well looked after by Jo who was attentive when need but left us to ourselves. We didn't want to come home. This place is a touch of class. Stop reading the review and book it!
Mr Webb February 2020
Excellent properties, well thought out, lovely welcome pack on arrival. Pool and hot tub fantastic. We will definitely be coming back
Ms Amato September 2019
Gorgeous property. Immaculately presented, homely, comfortable. Hot tub was lovely. Owners very accommodating. Great location for exploring mid / south Cornwall. Would recommend to others and would love to stay again!
Mrs Heubeck May 2019
A lovely holiday in comfortable surroundings. This is our second visit to the same place which we have never done before but so much to do both on site (swimming pool tennis court, gym, hot tub etc) and in the surrounding area. Still have things to do next time! Drift is a great home from home, very comfortable.
Mrs Allison April 2019
We stayed in drift over the Easter holidays . The photos don’t do the property justice it’s much bigger than it looks and the inside is very clean and comfortable. My husband always moans about pillows on holiday but not these . Thank you for the wine cake and milk the kitchen was well stocked and it was great to be able to have pool towels provided. The location is down a quiet lane there is nice walking out of the front door and so much to see locally we could have easily stayed for longer . The owner obviously has a personal pride in these properties and it shows . The hot tub was lovely . I don’t want to rate this place too highly in case we can’t get in next year !! We had the swimming pool to ourselves every day and it was lovely and warm . Thank you Kathy Iain Hannah and Martha April 2019
Mrs Patterson April 2019
The owner was a very friendly host & always spoke to the Grandchildren. A very welcomed bottle of prosecco on arrival
Ms De Souza November 2018
We had a superb time at Emerald. The property was beautifully decorated and very clean. The grounds were wonderful; we thoroughly enjoyed the gardens, lake and hot tub which was all kept in great condition. Will definitely be back again and recommending to friends and family
Mrs Slade August 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Drift; beautiful grounds with plenty to occupy the family. Ideal location in between Truro and Falmouth. Gorgeous property with ALL mod cons to hand. Kids especially loved the pool and Netflix. Grown-ups loved the space and quiet. We liked it so much that we'll return next year.
Dr Jain July 2018
I would wholeheartedly recommend this place for families and couples alike - it caters for all. Just wonderful!
Mrs Heubeck June 2018
A wonderful place to relax with peaceful surroundings. Good Quality fixtures and fittings and plenty of room to move around and relaz. We really enjoyed the use of the 24 hour swimming pool which when we used it we had to ourselves. The whole place and how it had been planned with regard to the environment was just superb. We hope to be back.The owner was an excellent host. We have a 24 year old autistic son with learning difficulties who finds it hard to relax somewhere new. The owner put him at ease and my son really enjoyed the ride round the estate in The owner's golf buggy as he showed us the facilities, ie Goldfish Pond, Tennis Court, Table Tennis table, Gym, outdoor play area, Swimming pool. We were greeted with a few essentials and scones and a bottle of wine. The owner was unobtrusive but easy to reach if you had any questions. Great for wildlife and listening to the birds and nothing else. One of my abiding memories is sitting on the patio in the evening to hear a rustle and there just come through the hedge was a fox - he looked and then disappeared before I could even mention it to my husband.
Mrs Bishop May 2018
This was our second time at Drift so we knew what to expect. This a very high end property. It has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and two lounges just perfect for a family along with grandparents. There was even a hot tub this time which our grandsons made good use of. Good location being only 5 miles to Truro one way and 5 miles to Falmouth in the other. Loe beach close by. we loved everything about it this time just as we did on the last visit. The owner is excellent, cannot do enough to ensure you enjoy your holiday. It is a dog friendly house and my daughter's dog, Charlie, had a wonderful holiday too.
Mr Hetherington February 2018
We stayed at drift for the february half term, Mon - friday and had a fantastic break. The owner welcomed us with a trip around the estate in his golf buggy which the kids (7 and 9) loved. The owner is a great host and very kind and in tune with his guests - couldnt be more helpful.
Emmerald is a fantastic estate. We stayed in drift which was top notch in terms.of holiday accomodation, as were all of the facilities on site. We enjoyed the tennis, pool and hot tub under the conish stars!
Thank you for a great stay and best wishes for the future
Graham, louisa, oscar and leo. (Oh, and jonny and jane the grand parents!)
Miss Brown November 2017
Every detail has been considered here. I can't recommend this stunning house enough !!!
Mr Ozyer July 2017
A warm friendly welcome with wine and cream tea. A helpful proprietor always available and helpful without being intrusive. A very comfortable place with good access to main routes but in a quiet country location
Mr Fownes May 2017
The house was very luxurious , spacious, clean and comfortable. It is within easy access of Falmouth and Truro. The hot tub was a welcome bonus , everyone enjoyed the pool and the tennis court, especially the ball thrower ! Lovely long weekend in the sun, peaceful and beautiful setting. The owners were very welcoming. We hope to be back soon.
Mrs Over February 2017
Property, hot tub and pool are fantastic - the best we have stayed in
Ms Howse December 2016
This was our second visit to these properties and we have had the most amazing time. There really is nothing bad to say about Drift and all the facilities that accompany it. Perfect getaway venue. The owner is very welcoming and we wouldn't have come back for a second visit if it wasn't the most perfect place to stay! Thank you! The Howse Family
Mrs Stringer October 2016
Wonderfully relaxing and tranquil setting with excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome. There are 4 generations of us from 9 to 93 plus a dog and we were all at home straight away.
Mr Davis September 2016
Excellent property that the photos do not really do justice to the design and quality of this attractive and very comfortable holiday home. The indoor swimming pool - available 24 hours - was a real treat as was the well equipped tennis court and surrounding grounds.
Mrs Robinson September 2016
We loved everything about our time spent at Drift. The facilities were amazing. The house was clean. You couldn't wish for any more. Also the owner was friendly and helpful. We certainly plan to visit again.
Ms Papadopoulos August 2016
The owners were both the kindest most welcoming hosts. Couldn't do more for you. It was a pleasure meeting them and after a two week stay we all feel refreshed and satisfied. Drift is a modern 2 storey house with large balcony overlooking the gardens. It is beautifully equipped and furnished with everything you need. Drift is surrounded by beautiful gardens bursting with plants and trees. A short stroll leads you to a tennis court complete with ball collector and ball throwing machine. Another path leads you to an indoor pool and a gym. The property has two lounge rooms which allowed the children to watch their own programmes upstairs as we watched the Olympics downstairs. Drift was a lovely place to stay.
Mrs Matthews July 2016
A 5 star stay in a beautiful place. I didn't miss home once!
Mr Lopeman July 2016
The owner was an excellent host and always there to help with any requests. We could not have chosen a better location to be able to visit the beautiful attractions of both North and South Cornwall. Everything was within easy reach. In addition the accommodation was first class and spacious with the added advantage of great amenities to suit those who wanted to be more active or relax in a calm and beautiful environment. We would definitely go back to this gem of a place:-)
Mrs Bishop May 2016
Everything about our holiday at Drift was fantastic. Beautiful property, superbly fitted out. Lots of space (huge bathrooms). Attention to detail was sublime. Can't praise it enough. The owner looked after us so well and the grounds and facilities could not be faulted and above all, absolutely everything was sooooo clean. My grandsons spent a lot of time in the pool and on the tennis court - they so enjoyed everything. Even Charlie the dog had a great time. This property outshone even our wildest expectations!
Mrs Stringer October 2015
Nothing was too much trouble for the owner who was on hand to make our stay as brilliant as possible.
Mr Emery October 2015
If you want somewhere to stay in Cornwall that is reasonably close to both the south and north coast, is quiet and luxuriously appointed and has plenty of amenities on site, then look no further. Great value for money.
Mr Payne August 2015
It would be difficult to improve on the standards of Drift and the Emerald site
Mr Payne July 2015
Drift is a superb holiday home....the owners who live on site are very helpful
Mrs Woodhead July 2015
This is a high class, well maintained establishment. Drift very comfortable and spacious property. It is laid out well, light and airy: a great 'plus' is that the boot room/utility is just as you walk in the front door so you don't need to walk dust and mud throughout the house. The kitchen was well stocked (including some basic provisions - tea, coffee, sugar, oil) as was the fridge (milk, juice and a bottle of wine!). Our boys loved having a second sitting area away from their parents where they could watch the programmes they wanted. In terms of the outdoor facilities, the swimming pool is a big pull for our boys - perfect for those Cornish rainy days! We also loved the tennis court and the area next to the court, where our boys played cricket and croquet. The owners are great hosts - making us feel very welcome and always checking that we were happy and comfortable. The owner went out of his way to buy a cricket net for our boys to use so they didn't keep losing their balls! A really perfect holiday.
Mrs Jackson March 2015
Wonderful well equipped, stylish and comfortable property in a great location for exploring Cornwall. The owner was very friendly and helpful, the indoor pool was excellent and a boon in the wet weather with small children. The beautiful gardens are well laid out for privacy. There is no DVD player though, fine for adults as there is Netflix - but if you have children who like their favourite movies like we do, you will need to take your own.
Mr McKenna July 2014
A fabulous holiday home, beautiful setting and fabulous facilities. The attention to detail and quality is impressive. Beautiful grounds, fabulous pool. If you are looking for somewhere to truly rax and unwind in luxurious surroundings, this is ideal!
Mrs Nichols July 2014
A great family stay, very relaxing and plenty to do.
