    We had a lovely time throughout our stay and Driftwood was a perfect size for the two of us, the apartment was well equipped and really cosy. It is located in the heart of St Ives with easy access to everywhere. The only downside for us was the shower, it is only a combined mixer/shower tap and the Cross over valve wasn't working properly so it was extremely low pressure. I would personally recommend that it would be better as a wet room with an electric shower as the bath is only half size so bathing isn't really an option unless you are a young child. We still had an amazing time and would definitely go back again to driftwood but fixing the shower would make it perfect.

    This is the most delightful, quirky little cottage. We felt at home immediately with our 2 dogs. Local to the car park, town and beaches. I really needed to destress and this was the perfect accommodation and location for us. Comfy mattress, comfy couch and everything you needed. Will be definitely returning as it was a little piece of heaven in beautiful St. Ives

    Cottage was comfortable and a perfect size for a couple and their dog, however the parking situation wasn’t so great, we weren’t prewarned about the £50 cost of the weeks stay.

    A great cottage in terms of location, spotless clean, just a little smaller than expected but after all we only slept there and has bonus fantastic wall to wall sunshine a fab holiday. Love St Ives.



    out of 10

    The cottage was nice but the bedroom was tiny and only very very small wardrobes. There was nowhere to put anything you don't hang up.
