Many places in Cornwall are known for their waterside charm, and no property better encapsulates that than Driftwood. Perched in an enviable riverside location, this two-bedroom apartment has been recently refurbished to provide a cosy and luxurious place to stay for up to four people.
Park your car in the private, off road space provided, and make your way up to this to 1st floor apartment. Upon opening the front door you’ll be greeted by a spacious hallway with a gleaming wooden floor and coastal themed driftwood furniture (hardly surprising, given the name!)
On one side of the property you will find the living and dining area: a light airy space with wooden floors, sturdy furniture, and a contemporary seaside theme. There’s plenty of sofa space to crash out on after a hard day, and you can enjoy a film or catch up on your favourite shows with the flatscreen television and DVD player. A BT ‘Youview’ box gives you access to plenty of entertainment. A Bose soundlink dock lets you play your favourite tunes, and the free guest Wi-Fi allows you to update your social media accounts with tales and images of this fantastic accommodation.
Located right under a window overlooking the river, the dining table is perfectly positioned for you to enjoy a romantic meal or a family dinner against the stunning backdrop of the water. The balcony, complete with chairs and a small table, makes a perfect breakfasting spot, or the ideal place to retreat to with a glass of wine in the evenings.
The kitchen is perfectly equipped with stylish units, fresh tiles, and all the appliances you could need to prepare your favourite family meals and make Driftwood truly feel like a home from home. You’ll find a double oven with a gas hob, a large fridge and freezer, a washing machine and tumble dryer, a dishwasher, microwave, and even a Nespresso coffeemaker.
Bedroom one features a double bed and a soft, contemporary design with neutral carpets and walls and a stylish seaside themed feature wall. There’s a large chest of drawers so that you can pack all of your things away, which always helps you feel more at home than living out of a suitcase! This bedroom benefits from a well-equipped ensuite, complete with shower, WC, and basin, and heated towel rail.
The second bedroom features twin singles which can be made into a king-size bed, making Driftwood perfect for couples or families and features a bold seaside theme, with nautical bedsheets, cushions and wallpaper. Twin wardrobes, a chest of drawers and bedside table give you plenty of storage.
Both bedrooms feature DAB radios so you can drift off whilst listening to your favourite station, or laze around in bed with music in the mornings.
Taking a bath in the family bathroom is an absolute must so that you can soak away your tensions and luxuriate in the freshly refurbished room. There’s also a shower over the bath, WC, hand basin, and heated towel rail so that stepping out of the warm water needn’t be an unpleasant experience.
The stunning riverside location means that there will always be something out of the window to occupy your attention. If you want a change from watching the river go by, trying to spot birds and fish, you’ll find the town of Penryn has galleries, pubs, cafes and takeaways just a few minutes’ walk away. A quick drive up the road takes you to Falmouth, with shops, restaurants, and attractions to keep you entertained. You can catch the train or a ferry to Truro, and from there the rest of Cornwall is within easy reach.
