A LOVELY HOLIDAY IN DRIFTWOOD by Tim Booker, Bristol, August 2014 on November 17th 2016
We had a fantastic holiday at Driftwood House, on the outskirts of Newquay. The location was ideal, as it was a quiet cul-de-sac, within walking distance of Fistral Beach, the Gannel Beach and the facilities in central Newquay. It was also a good base for driving to other places in Cornwall, with easy access to the ring road. There were no problems with parking. Although there is only one reserved parking space next to the property, parking on the road adjacent to the property was not a problem. The property itself was ideal for our family, which included teenagers and older people. The bedrooms were spacious, and very pleasantly decorated. Bathroom/toilet facilities were spacious and clean. Downstairs there was a very well equipped kitchen, a spacious lounge, and lovely sunny conservatory dining area. It was noted that there are plans to refurbish the ground floor into open plan living, which will further enhance this property. There is a lovely outside area, which is private and suitable for sitting and dining. All in all, we had a lovely holiday, and would definitely visit the area, and the property again.
