About Lee

We love Newquay as a town, for it's incredible beaches and for it's location within Cornwall for exploring the county. We chose this house specifically for it's location within Newquay. We have a family and wanted something where we could walk to the beach and town, whilst being out of sight and sound from the hussle and bussle of the vibrant night life. It really is everything we could have wanted. We love to surf, walk, shop, fish and BBQ. Driftwood has it all.

Lee purchased this house in 2009

Why Lee chose Newquay & St Austell area

It's so close to everything you could want in Newquay, so you can walk pretty much anywhere. Newquay caters for everyone, young to elderly and active to relaxing. Beaches, bars, shops, scenery, countryside. It's all here.

What makes this house unique

Towels included, no need to carry your own.

Wi-Fi included.

Open fire for cosy winter nights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Me and my family had a fantastic time at Driftwood. The house was lovely and Newquay has a lot to offer. I will certainly consider coming back. Lauren & Co.

just a short line to thank you once again for the use of Driftwood for our family vacation.

the property indeed is in the perfect location with regards to all the local amenities and was more than adequate to meet our demands.

we would certainly recommend it to our friends & family,and if we were ourselves holidaying in and around Newquay in the future would certainly like to stay again. thanks one more time, andy,andrea & family.

It's a well presented and well positioned house that has everything you could need. Excellent value for money. Thank you. Bob & Audrey.

It's really close to the beach and the shops, that's the best bit. Sam & Kay.

Very clean, fully equipped family holiday home. Good position in Newquay for beaches and restaurant. We did find an excellent restaurant 10 mins drive from Newquay called Summglers Den in Cubert..

Ideal property

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed our long weekend at Driftwood.

The house was spotless and only a short walk to the beach and town centre as well.

Would definitely return one day.

Many thanks to Lee and his family.

Well located, clean family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well maintained. Well equipped and comfortable beds. Great for surfers. Quite residential road yet only a few minutes walk from the beach. Tesco express around the corner. Restaurants a few minutes walk away too. Great stay. Would highly recommend

Clean, maintained family home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks from the whole family for a brilliant holiday in Newquay. Driftwood was perfect for our base and was everything we expected from your description on the website.

Even though the weather let us down a little, the family had plenty to see and do in Newquay and the surrounding areas. It was very different from our one and only visit to Newquay about 40 years ago and still has its charm and beautiful coastline which we were able to see more of on this holiday. We are sure our grandchildren will fondly remember this holiday for many years to come.
