  • "Beautiful property with a view to die for."

    Very peaceful place to stay. Spotlessly clean. Not too far up the hill from shops bars and restaurants which was good because the hills are steep.

  • "We had a superb week at Driftwood."

    The proximity to the the town and the ability to take long walks from the front door were big pluses for us. The only (small) issues were the access on arrival and departure and the lack of sufficient comfortable seating in the evening. We knew about the access issues but didn’t realise you’d need a high clearance, small car to access the lane, making arrival and departure a litre stressful. There’s really only sofas for 4 people and while the window seat is nice during the day, it isn’t comfortable for a prolonged period in the evening. We had to rotate so that people could take turns in a comfy seat. If we came in the summer, the lack of outdoor seating would be an issue but as we came in the Autumn, this wasn’t a problem. Despite these two minor points, we had an excellent week and would definitely return.

  • "We loved waking up to the view across Fowey and the bay, and being able to wander down into the town for coffee or something to eat."

    The house is beautifully decorated and easy to live in. We had a lovely time. Thank you.

  • "The property was in a great location but a few things did impact our stay: 1."

    No WIFI. We raised this with the owner and maintenance team but no resolution during our stay. 2. Roadworks right outside the rear of the property. This wasn’t advised prior to our departure and was a bit of a nuisance, especially waking up to a drill in the mornings outside the bedroom 3. The property would benefit from a larger pan for cooking and knives that chop! 4. Better ventilation downstairs- due to lack of privacy in the morning we couldn’t open the doors outside as the bathroom leads directly onto the path (a gate would improve security/privacy) so we found the downstairs bedroom/bathroom got very hot and damp smelling due to showers. A better extractor fan would be good. 5. The bed in the main downstairs room is not very comfortable (can feel springs) On a positive note, the views from the living room window were brilliant and it’s a good location for town/Ready Money beach. Overall, we had a really enjoyable stay in Fowey but it’s unlikely we’d stay in Driftwood again.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed that your experience was not all positive. As you are aware, we tried to resolve the Wi-Fi issue as soon as we were aware of it. The router unexpectedly failed and needed replacing. This has now been done. Unfortunately we were not given prior warning of the essential gas supply works which coincided with your stay so were unable to inform you before your stay. We value your other comments, which have not been raised as issues by other guests, and will take them on board. Property Owner

Nestled in the idyllic harbour town of Fowey in Cornwall is this delightful three-storey house, Driftwood.

Enjoying a fabulous central location with easy access to all local amenities and boasting beautiful river and town views, Driftwood makes for a wonderful dwelling for a group or family of up to six.

Step into the property where, on the ground floor, you will find two well-appointed bedrooms, a super-king size with TV and en-suite shower room and a twin with TV.

On the first floor you will find a spacious open-plan living area with a well-appointed kitchen including electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher.

A dining area has plenty of room for six to sit at the table.

The inviting sitting room area offers a smart TV and a charming window seat with superb views over the town, historic Place House and the River Fowey.

A family bathroom with bath and shower over is also on the first floor.

On the second floor is a generous double bedroom with far-reaching views.

The bustling town is only a short walk from the house and there you will find a good selection of pubs, restaurants, and cafes in what is increasingly becoming a foodie hotspot.

There is always plenty of sailing activity on the water and you must catch the regular foot ferry over the river to check out the quaint cottages and alleyways of Polruan.

For a day out at the beach it is just a brief stroll to Readymoney Cove where you can enjoy the sandy beach with its popular café, paddle the clear waters or just soak up the views.

Walkers can join the South West Coast Path within minutes and there are plenty of local circular walks giving splendid coastal and harbour views.

Driftwood is an ideal choice for the whole family and a perfect base for exploring at any time of the year.

About the location


Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
