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 Newquay & St Austell area

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.

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.

Perfect spring break!

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment was the best ever! Spotlessly clean with gorgeous white bed linen and towels - also beach towels provided! The welcome card, flowers and superb hamper gave a lovely personal touch. Quiet location yet easy walk into town for shops and eating out. We chose the location to enable us to visit friends and family out of season thus avoiding the summer crowds. Visited Heligan and Fowey. We love Cornwall! Warm sunshine nearly every day was an added bonus to a wonderful holiday.

Short Break in Driftwood

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 3 night stay at this delightful accommodation. The property was better than expected and spotlessly clean. Very well equipped and bedding linen and towels of excellent quality. Ideally situated for touring central Cornwall, and the rest isn't that far away. The town is a short walk away, although the walk back up the hill is steep and could be a challenge for the less able. Plenty of places to eat and drink, with preference being the closest pub, The Royal Oak, although they didn't provide food on Monday evenings, when we were there. Maybe different in peak season.
