The property

This luxurious coastal home with sea views from the upper floor sits five minutes from Lusty Glaze Beach, voted UK Beach of the Year 2017 by The Sunday Times. Driftwood is a contemporary house designed for style conscious guests on an affluent sea road between the vibrant town of Newquay and glorious beach of Porth.

The famous Watergate Bay is just a 5 minute drive or one hour’s coastal walk away. Set over two floors, this modern retreat is perfect for family, friends and couples.

The ground floor offers an open plan living room with smart wood flooring, big modern sofas, individual furniture and local artwork – with a social dining area and kitchen for gatherings. The living area double doors lead out to an enclosed garden with a patio for barbecues and a fire pit for sundowners. The first floor hosts three bedrooms, one with an en-suite plus a chic family bathroom. Within a five minute walk is officially the best beach in the UK - the beautiful horseshoe-shaped cove of Lusty Glaze.

Down the 133 steps you’ll find a sandy beach sheltered by tall cliffs, plus beach restaurant and bar serving an all-day menu all year round, with regular live music right on the sand.

The beach and bar is perfect for all the family, including dogs, for day and night activities.

You can arrange surf lessons, jet-ski tours, banana boat rides, abseiling, tight rope walking or kick back with a seaward facing beach hut (complete with deck chairs!) and soak up the beach vibe.

About the location


Holywell 6 miles; Perranporth 8.5 miles; Truro 14 miles; Padstow 14 miles.

Newquay is the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a watersports paradise. The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 14 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached within 30 minutes. Picturesque St Ives and the Tate St Ives gallery is under an hour's drive or a train ride away. In fact, because nothing in Cornwall is far from Newquay, it’s the perfect touring base.
