About Jan

Steve and I love Cornwall. We enjoy welcoming guests to Driftwood and to suggest places of interest to visit. The Cornish coastline is spectacular with impressive beaches and quaint fishing harbours.

Why Jan chose Lostwithiel

Driftwood is ideally situated to explore the North and South coast. Lostwithiel's shops/restaurants are downhill from the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet situation with parking. We have designed the pretty garden to allow guests a quiet sunny space with seating.

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.

A great place for two

  • 5 of 5

Lovely homely place for two.spotlessly clean, very well equipped, large comfortable bed, good quality towels and bedding.Nice surroundings, lovely garden and a nice little private bbq area to have a G and T and talk the day over,Jan greeted us very warmly, and gave us a very welcome hamper and a lovely Cornish cream tea. Quite a hilly walk into Lostwitheil, but really good places to eat, and a very interesting castle, Perfect position for seeing NT properties ,Heligan and the coastal towns.
