“Perfect accommodation”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Driftwood is beautifully and thoughtfully designed. We had an extremely comfortable week here. Excellent wifi connection. A car parking space on site which is a rarity in Padstow. The bed is super comfy. The kitchen is well equipped and very well laid out so that cooking, which I love, but can be a bit hit and miss in rental accommodation was a pleasure in Driftwood.
There were lots of thoughtful details including the dressing gowns, touch operated bedside lights, fresh flowers on the table, bubbly in the fridge, plenty of coffee, tea and sugar including pods for the Nespresso machine.
It was also very easy to get in touch with the owners who responded quickly to each communication. We are looking forward to returning.

“Lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The cottage is finished to a very high standard and very well looked after. The location is excellent, 2 mins walk into Padstow and has it's own off street parking which is very useful in Padstow. I would definitely stay here again.

“Terriffic !!”

people found this review helpful

We had stayed in Driftwood before but this was our first visit since it became self catering so we weren't quite sure what to expect however to say we were not disappointed is an understatement - our expectations were massively exceeded.
Superb attention to detail, beautiful roses on the table and a bottle of 'bubbly' in the fridge plus a host of other extras, this is no ordinary self catering apartment.
On site parking & only a few minutes from the harbour and restaurants are a bonus.
We shall certainly be returning to Driftwood

“Faultless”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My partner and I have rented numerous properties over a lengthy period of time but this is the first one that I have found impossible to fault in even the slightest aspect. From the welcoming bottle of wine to the extremely comfortable bed, Neil got everything right with impeccable attention to detail. With such a wealth of excellent eateries and some of the most beautiful walks in the world, Padstow and Driftwood have so many reasons to return to again and again.
