About the property

Driftwood Haven is a well-appointed luxury cottage, sitting in the seaside village of Carbis Bay, Cornwall.

With its chic decor and sociable open-plan living space, this luxurious abode is the perfect location for groups of six that seek an unforgettable escape to the Cornish coast.

Admire the stunning exterior of this property as you pull onto the gravelled driveway and make your way up onto the patio.

Step into the bright white hallway and head for the open-plan living space, filled with bright natural light from the contemporary patio doors.

Gather snacks from the fully-fitted kitchen boasting stylish dark grey units and marble-style worktops, before re-grouping on the sofas and feeling like your part of the movie as you watch the latest blockbuster on the 65" TV with surround sound from high-tech sound bar.

Take a seat at the breakfast bar and watch the chef of the group show off their talents as they prepare an exquisite three course meal, to be devoured at the dining table; no need to fight over who's turn it is to do the dishes, leave it to the dishwasher.

At the end of the hallway, a handy utility space provides the perfect area to wash and dry your clothes after an action-packed day on the beach.

Head up the airy staircase to the shower room and indulge in a refreshing waterfall shower, whilst your towel keeps warm on the heated rail.

Wander into your bedroom for the week and take your time to pick out an outfit for the evening ahead; an immaculate king-size bedroom has been beautifully decorated in neutral tones with blue accents and sweet little nods to the coastal location, making this a tranquil spot to lay your head to rest.

Further down the hall you will find an attractive double bedroom with built-in storage for all of your belongings and en-suite with waterfall shower; this bedroom also features gorgeous patio doors out to a balcony with breath-taking views of the sea.

A charming twin bedroom with crisp white bedding and lovely decor is a great spot to rest for those wanting to stay with a friend.

Back on the ground-floor, you will also find access to the rear garden of the property, make the most of this space during the summer months with lunch on the lawn, or instead, why not tuck into breakfast around the outdoor table on the front patio.

When you can manage to tear yourself away from this sumptuous dwelling, wander down to Carbis Bay and take a stroll along the white sands as you admire the clear waters.

Develop new and exciting skills with an exhilarating surf lesson with Roam Cornwall, or head into St Ives where you can catch a boat ride or hire out a kayak or wine and dine at one of the many local bars and restaurants.

Spend an afternoon on a scenic walk through Steeple Woodland Nature Reserve before visiting the historical sites of Knill's Monument and Trencrom Hill.

For a chilled-out retreat to the vibrant village of Carbis Bay, stay at Driftwood Haven.

About the location


St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside town of Carbis Bay is best-known for its beautiful stretch of pure white sand. With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the boutique hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.
