Located just 100 yards from Porthtowan Beach, Driftwood could not be in a better location. Porthtowan is the ideal situation for a holiday in Cornwall because of its great beach, pubs (including the famous Blue Bar - closed for 6 weeks each year for refurbishment from beginning of Jan) and most importantly its proximity to the A30 which means the whole mid and west Cornwall is easily accessible if you want to visit other places during your stay.
Driftwood is part of a small development of other holiday cottages in this beach front location and benefits from its own off road parking space. The cottage is set out over 2 floors and there is also a decked back garden with a brick BBQ - ideal for dining on warmer evenings. The kitchen is fully fitted with a dining table seating 4 people. The lounge has glimpses of the sea from the front windows and has a comfortable corner sofa. Two bedrooms upstairs make this the perfect family getaway.
Ground Floor: Fully fitted kitchen, with separate sitting room.
First Floor: Master bedroom with 4' 6" double bed followed by a bunk room with 3' beds, a separate family bathroom with over bath shower and stair gate at the top of the stairs.
Exterior: Enclosed beach style deck with picnic table and small grassed section. Please note that there is a right of way over the back garden for the next door cottages. It is used very occasionally to cut through to the beach.

Occupying a dramatic valley location with one of the most spectacular and beautiful beaches of the Atlantic Coast, Porthtowan has been drawing visitors for years to take advantage of its natural sun trap. A superb location for a holiday to Cornwall with a fine beach and close to good main roads means that you can easily explore the surrounding area on days that are not conducive to sitting on the beach.
Porthtowan has one of Cornwall's finest surfing waves. Producing good waves at all states of the tide, the wave is particularly good in an easterly or south easterly when it really pumps with some lovely hollow barrels. It is not for the faint hearted and beginners should be careful. An excellent surf school operates from the beach. At low tide the beach stretches down to St Agnes Head and Chapel Porth Beach where you will find a lovely National Trust Cafe full of warming hot chocolate and fabulous views. From Porthtowan you are ideally located to reach the many beaches on the North Coast famous for attracting keen surfers and beginners alike.
