    Beautiful cottage, excellent location, although the chances of getting parked at the Island car-park were nil!! Paid for secure parking quite a distance away in the end we parked at the station car park. First time back to St. Ives for over 40 years, still beautiful. The cottage is ideal for a couple, and it was wonderful that they accepted our pooch! There was a problem with the electric socket and this was mended immediately. The competition for rental properties is very competitive and we have nothing to compare Driftwood to, although we would still recommend, clearly a very much loved cottage loved all the charms hanging from main beam, bed very conformable, it night be worth mentioning the Pygmy sized bath, we had no problem with it quite comical to see y husbands legs half way up the wall, I was belly laughing. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    Great location and owners very welcoming, great for short break as would need slightly more space if longer. Great for dogs as short walk to area's were you can take dog to in early mornings and evenings. Very close to car park which was really convenient.

    I went away with my partner and two dogs for a winter break to celebrate her birthday. Driftwood is a lovely bolthole. Very close to some beautiful beaches and only a few minutes from the harbour and some lovely pubs. The property is all on one level with a house above it but accessed from behind. The owners have made this a characterful cosy place to stay. Nice proportioned kitchen with everything you need a relaxing lounge, modern bathroom and bedroom. There was internet and a smart tv. Plenty of books and dvds. The location is quite perfect. Car park at the end of the street. All of the old part of St Ives is on your doorstep. Makes you feel part of the place.

    Great location , good for a couple to get away , the cottage is single storey and you can sometimes hear people above , but not very often. The room is slightly dark , but it's very cosy and a fantastic location. Great value and highly recommend
