About Driftwood Cottage:

Driftwood Cottage Sits in a quiet cul-de-sac, this lovely terraced cottage is perfectly positioned for a relaxing holiday in the historic fishing village of Porthlevenand is newly built to a high standard.

The House Setup & Location.

House sleeps 4 adults and one baby - cot provided. All bedding is provided for the double room and the twin bed room, you just need to bring towels and a travel cot sheet (if needs). Kitchen which is open plan and joins the sitting room is fully equipped and also has a washing machine and a dishwasher. In the sitting room which is pictured, there is a TV and DVD player. There is a cloakroom downstairs and a bathroom upstairs. The house has a drive at the front for off road parking. At the back is a courtyard garden which is fully decked.

Just a few minutes’ walk from the house you will find magnificent sea views overlooking Porthleven’ s 3 mile beach near to the historic cobbled harbour, with several gift, craft and book shops, galleries and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.

Local seafood is of course a speciality and if you fancy cooking your own, fresh fish can be purchased from the award winning Quayside fish. There are three public houses in Porthleven, including The Atlantic Inn, which affords panoramic views of Mounts Bay, and has excellent home cooked food.

Please note the house is located a short walk (3 mins) from the harbour and doesn't have see views. I have included pictures of the harbour and Kynance cove to give am idea of the locality.
