The property

This charming, traditional miner's cottage is located in the quiet village of Ashton, just over a mile from the south coast with its scenic walks and sandy coves.

Full of character, Driftwood Cottage boasts exposed granite walls and beamed ceilings, with calming neutral tones throughout; the perfect country cottage.

From the front garden, step through the handy porch into the inviting sitting room, where a cosy wood burning stove creates a warming snug during winter months.

The country-style dining room leads up into the small but perfectly formed kitchen, where a stable door allows the Cornish sunshine to stream into the cottage on fine days.

Upstairs, there are two restful and well-presented bedrooms; one of which enjoys distant sea glimpses.

The enclosed rear west-facing garden offers a delightful place to unwind, perfect for summer barbecues or a read of the morning papers.

The village of Ashton is small and friendly, with a lovely, quaint family-run pub -The Lion and Lamb - just a short stroll from the cottage.

Well positioned for exploring the south coast, guests of Driftwood Cottage will find plenty of picturesque rambles close by, and the much-loved harbour town of Porthleven is just a short drive away.

Holidays here are spent discovering the coast, relaxing on sandy beaches and trying out the local fayre in the area's charming inns and highly-acclaimed restaurants.

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
