A true Cornish gem can be found in the pretty fishing village of Porthleven. With traditional features and a fresh contemporary look, Driftwood Cottage makes the perfect holiday retreat. Imagine sinking into the sofa with a glass of wine after a delicious meal, resting your achy legs after a busy day exploring – ahhh…bliss!
Original low ceilings and lintels feature throughout this cottage and there are lots of little steps to watch out for - but don't worry, you will quickly grow used to them. The sitting-room is on the ground floor, where you enter the property, and here there is a large comfortable sofa to snuggle on. Down a few steps at the back you will find the stylish bathroom, complete with separate bath and shower, where you can soak away your worries.
Down the steep stairs to the lower ground floor you will find the cute kitchen – please do watch your head here. The two bedrooms are located on the first floor; one gorgeous double bedroom and one very cute single bedroom, which offers flexibility for guests.
This charming three-storey, terraced cottage lies a short stroll from Porthleven's picturesque harbour, where you can enjoy all there is on offer and perhaps not worry about the car for a few days. The village has a variety of pubs, restaurants and cafes to choose from and there is no shortage of tasty cakes and ice-cream!
Perhaps take the coast path to the east or west and discover what this stunning part of Cornwall holds. The Lizard is fabulous to explore and within very easy reach, it changes so much through the year and will have you wanting to return all year round.

Porthleven Sands, the long beach to the east of the harbour. There are strong undercurrents and submerged rocks which makes swimming inadvisable, though popular with experienced surfers.
Within a 15 minute walk of the harbour, this is the magnificent view eastwards towards the Lizard peninsula.
