About Jan

I have run Driftwood apartment for over 10 years and I am passionate about ensuring that our accommodation is super clean, well equipped and welcoming for holidaymakers to enjoy. We are delighted to welcome guests back year after year.

The Cornish coastline is spectacular with impressive beaches, quaint fishing harbours and history around every corner.

Jan purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jan chose Lostwithiel

Lostwithiel was the home of my Grand parents and their parents before them... It is a very special place to me with an enviable community spirit. The river Fowey winds its way through the town and there are many countryside walks nearby and interesting shops in the town.

Driftwood apartment has the advantage over many holiday properties in Lostwithiel in that it has its own private parking alongside the apartment. So much easier after a long day exploring the fabulous coastline to be able to park up outside your own front door and unpack the car.

What makes this apartment unique

Being situated on the edge of Lostwithiel, the apartment has the benefit of being in a quiet location yet, it is only a short walk down to the river and shops.

A Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely recommend. Jan has thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible - a home from home.

Everything you need and a very comfortable king sized bed.

Lostwithiel is a lovely quiet town with a supermarket that has everything and some good eating places. The food at the Globe Inn was best meal out we've had in ages. The Chinese Takeaway and Fish and Chip shop were also very good. We also enjoyed a massive pizza at Calogero's.

It is also a great base for exploring Cornwall - we visited lovely fishing villages and beaches on both the north and south coasts and also the Eden Project is worth a visit.

You won't be disappointed!

Lovely Little Place in a Beautiful Cornish Town

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my partner at Driftwood Cottage over New Year and would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Lostwithiel or wanting a base from which to explore Cornwall.

We had a great time and were well looked after in this very nicely presented house. Plus there is parking which is a real bonus. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Peaceful and relaxing Lostwithwiel retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location as well as the clean and comfortable accommodation. On arrival we were welcomed by a lovely hamper and a cream tea. The cottage is within a walking distance of the shops and restaurants. There are some pleasant walks around, so you don't need the car all the time. The cottage is well equipped with all the essentials for self-catering; a well-stocked local co-op shop has everything you need. We visited some amazing places outside Lostwithiel on foot and by car. Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock, Mevagissy, Fowey, Charlestown and Polperro are just a few we would recommend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return.

An excellent apartment in an excellent position for visiting Cornwall.

  • 5 of 5

Driftwood is very well equipped, nicely decorated & very clean. It has a nice homely feel about it which overlooks a small private, pretty garden for the use of guests. We found this a real bonus as we had such lovely weather.

We arrived to a cream tea & a very well thought out food hamper. There was even fresh flowers in the hallway.

No where was very far so we will are looking forward to a return visit to Driftwood.

I would definitely recommend Driftwood to family & friends.
