Drift is an outstanding eco-house set in a tranquil countryside location close to the beaches and marinas of Falmouth. There are three bedrooms, three bath or shower-rooms, two sitting-rooms with Smart TVs, Netflix and unlimited WiFi and a private hot tub, making this a perfect holiday home for families and groups of friends.

Part of The Emerald – an exceptional award-winning eco development – Drift offers a truly wonderful holiday experience. With its own private hot tub right outside, and shared use of an indoor heated swimming pool (you can book a 1.5 hour session per day, and the system is explained in the property), a gym and children's play-area plus five acres of woodland and an ornamental lake all to explore, everyone will be happily occupied. There is also a tennis court with all-level coaching available from an experienced national level player/coach (please book on-site on arrival). In addition, there is a dreamy new spa room offering CACI treatments which work to plump and tone the skin, as well as a bespoke massage service, both can be booked in advance of your stay.

The Emerald has won awards as the only truly zero carbon holiday destination in the country having been awarded Code 6 status, the highest possible grading for eco efficiency. Within the five acres of shared grounds is a solar farm which generates all the energy The Emerald needs and more. There is also a useful Tesla charging point for electric cars at The Emerald (please bring your own adaptor for other makes). The owners politely ask that you state on arrival if you plan to take advantage of this service and to pay them via cash or bank transfer before departure.

Drift is one of the hi-spec, super-insulated cedar-clad houses along with its semi-detached mirror-image Coast (2822), with Cedar (2824) and Fern (2825) – each with a private hot tub – accommodating two, and The Gatehouse (2826), a beautiful single-storey cottage accommodating four, set slightly apart from the others so offering more privacy. The properties are all accessible for wheelchairs (with the exception of The Gatehouse), with level thresholds, ground floor bedrooms and double-width walk-in showers.

Drift has level access into a wide hallway leading to a big open plan living-room where doors open out to a paved terrace overlooking lawns and woodland. The kitchen is fully equipped for easy holiday catering and the sitting-area has a Smart TV with Netflix and an iPod dock. There is a big utility-room and a separate cloakroom.

The ground floor bedroom has 'zip and link' orthopaedic beds with adjustable mattresses for the perfect night's sleep (not individually adjustable when made up as a super-king size bed) The en suite wet-room has both a drench-head shower and a low level shower fixture, making this bedroom ideal for those with limited mobility or in wheelchairs.

A wide, light-filled staircase leads up to a second spacious sitting-area with a high ceiling, low hung lights, Smart TV and doors out to a large glass-sided balcony; this chill-out area is a fabulous additional space. With two further bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom on this floor, there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out and relax.

Falmouth and Truro are five miles away and the superb north coast surfing beaches just slightly more.
