A coastal delight with stunning sea views enjoyed through floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Mount’s Bay near the pretty village of Mousehole. Driftwood Haven enjoys private balcony space, a large modern kitchen and beautiful bedrooms sleeping up to eight guests in comfort and style.

Enter into the pretty tiled and wood flooring of the entrance hall that leads into an impressive and spacious open-plan kitchen living area. The first thing you will spot is the view with large floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the coast right outside of your doorstep; grab a comfy seat and take it all in; a lovely place to curl up with a book and glass of wine, whatever the weather.  

Dinner can be enjoyed at the stylish eight-seater dining table, with the colourful kitchen’s marine blue and green décor providing a large kitchen island to grab a coffee and croissant in the morning as you watch the boats bobbing on the ocean. The kitchen is well stocked with wall-mounted ovens, a dishwasher and a large fridge freezer, plus a convenient utility room with a washing machine and dryer, a great place to store wetsuits and sandy shoes!

The master bedroom can be found up a flight of stairs leading to a lovely lounge area with bespoke furniture and local artwork adorning the walls. Sit on a comfy sofa and enjoy the sea views from the large aspect windows. The bedroom is next to the lounge and boasts a lovely space with a king-size bed, a cosy seating area to enjoy the views from and a gorgeous double shower with stunning aquamarine tiling, and an additional en-suite WC and free-standing bath.

Downstairs a further double room with an en-suite shower also benefits from seaside views, while a comfortable double and twin room shares a great family bathroom, all complete with luxury linens and towels provided.

Throw open the double doors in the upstairs lounge or downstairs in the living space with two outdoor terraces to enjoy, complete with additional seating. The rear terrace is a great place to enjoy an al fresco meal with the cool sea breeze in your hair and a glass of something refreshing in hand!

Newlyn fishing harbour is just a short stroll from the property, offering a lively coastal scene, but you are within a stone’s throw of a number of fantastic spots on the Cornish south coast to get out and explore this lovely area.

Mousehole is a stunning little village in Southwest Cornwall with cobbled streets, pretty harbour and granite cottages. Have a meal at the local Ship Inn and watch the tide roll out, revealing a sandy beach to stroll on. Those looking for a picturesque walk should try the Mousehole to Lamorna Cove circular route that takes you through a nature reserve and out on top of the towering coastal cliffs over two to three hours.  

The Tyler Gallery is one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Cornwall and has a wonderful display of modern prints and paintings to admire or even purchase from a range of up-and-coming local Cornish artists.

Take a short drive to Marazion and pick up some lovely local fudge at Roly’s Fudge Pantry, where you can catch a demonstration by skilled staff. While you are there, a visit to the stunning National Trust island of St. Michael’s Mount is a must-see. You can reach the island on foot when the tide is out or catch one of the special boats going back and forth from the shore to the island harbour. There you can explore glorious, manicured gardens and a beautifully preserved historic castle, all part of the unique civil parish still thriving on the island.  

With its enviable coast, Cornwall has a plethora of beaches to choose from where crystal-clear waves await your enjoyment, with swimming, paddleboarding, water skiing, and boat rides all available. Just a thirty-minute drive away is the glorious stretch of Praa Sands, a fantastic beach with plenty of parking, golden sand and blue sea. There is an on-site café and ice cream shop and a gorgeous coastal path to follow for some light exercise. Why not take the coastal path to Prussia Cove, a stunning local’s favourite with rock pools and seal spotting to enjoy?

A trip to The Eden Project in St. Austell would make a great day out, taking just under an hour and a half in the car. This famous Cornish spectacle is a perfect spot for families where you can walk amongst the dramatic tropical biomes and experience the sights and smells of the rainforest. There are fascinating displays on climate and sustainability and a large restaurant and gift shop to keep the kids fed and happy!

Or head over to north Cornwall with a visit to St. Ives for a little local culture at the Cornish home of the Tate Gallery. Check out exhibits of both famous and local artists and browse the local artisan shops.

With a terrace to play in the sunshine and a cosy lounge to snuggle up in the chillier months, it’s a home for every season whilst benefiting from a fantastic location close to all the local South Cornish hot spots and right by the sea.

Take a Cormorant Cruise from the harbour from Newlyn, offering hour-long trips that take you along the breathtaking coast with possible sightings of a range of Sealife, from basking sharks to dolphins!

Adrenaline junkies could explore the coast further with a more hands-on approach by trying their hand at Coasteering. South Coast Family Adventure make family trips full of action and adventure, with knowledgeable guides to keep you safe and well-informed as you jump from rocks into the sea and get up close and personal with the craggy coastline.

Head to Praa Sands and hire a paddle board, kayak or surfboard with lessons available from the Boatshed Activity Centre, or if you’d prefer to relax, then just get out the bucket and spade and enjoy the lovely sandy beach with a Cornish ice cream in hand!
