Driftwood is a lovely newly refurbished two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment on the edge of a quay finished to a high standard with reserved parking and views across the wharf.

Driftwood is a modern, two bedroom apartment with two bathrooms and off-road parking set amongst a charming neighbourhood in an enviable quayside location. Located within a character – filled complex with views overlooking the wharf, it is just a stone’s throw from Penryn town centre and a short drive from Falmouth – this first-floor apartment boasts a superb location and bags of charm! For guests wanting a cosy and relaxing stay in Cornwall, with excellent amenities and sights on the doorstep, Driftwood is ideal.

Stepping into the apartment, guests are instantly greeted by the bright and modern feel of the property. With neutral walls and warm wooden flooring, this space is inviting and relaxing. Leading off a large entrance hall and through double doors to the left of the property, guests will find themselves within the main living area.

An open plan, kitchen, dining and lounge space, with wonderful views of the wharf and a gorgeous balcony. The living space is relaxing and cosy with two comfortable sofas providing an ideal spot for guests to sit back and put their feet up after a long day of exploring. There is a subtle nautical theme within this space, with modern Cornish prints of local towns and landmarks. A TV provides guests with a perfect spot to gather together on a quiet night in and catch up on their favourite shows or a movie and free standing lamps enable this space to remain cosy and relaxing once the sun goes down. This main living space is bright and warm, with large windows offering those gorgeous water views and allowing natural light to flood this space. The dining area is a great size, with a large wooden table and four chairs. Guests could really enjoy sharing breakfast together and watching the sunrise through the windows.

The kitchen is an excellent size and renovated with modern units and appliances. The neutral colour palette is in keeping with the rest of the space and spending quality time together cooking a delicious meal is a must. There is a double oven with a gas hob, a large fridge and freezer, a washing machine and tumble dryer, a dishwasher, microwave, and a Nespresso coffeemaker for all the home comforts.

On a warm summer evening, the balcony is a beautiful spot to take a moment to relax and unwind. Equipped with a table and chairs and those stunning views, it’s a lovely spot to enjoy a drink at the end of an exciting day.

The master bedroom comes complete with a king size bed and the subtle textures and tones of the room have created a tranquil and peaceful space. The feature wall is in keeping with the nautical theme of the property and the modern artwork is a continuation throughout this property, making the space flow. There is a large inbuilt closet and chest of drawers providing ample storage space for luggage.

A soft, neutral carpet is a welcoming addition for feet first thing in the morning as guests make their way over to the ensuite shower room.  With floor to ceiling tiles and a modern suite, this shower room is an inviting space for guests to enjoy some time alone and get ready for the day ahead. There is a WC and heated towel rail.

The second bedroom is an excellent size and also features a comfortable king size bed, that can be separated into two singles if guests require. With a pretty nautical themed feature wall and bed linen, this second bedroom is packed with character and charm and there are twin wardrobes and a chest of drawers for storage.

Across the large hallway is the family bathroom. Finished to the same high standard as the ensuite, it is a warm and tranquil room. Guests can enjoy taking a long soak in the bath before getting ready for an evening out. This room also features a WC and heated towel rail.

Driftwood is just a short walk from the centre of Penryn, with a selection of local shops and pubs and guests need to just a short drive over to Falmouth where there is an array of wonderful restaurants, galleries and shops. With one of the deepest natural harbours, Falmouth Harbour, guests can easily take to the water, with a fantastic range of ways to explore the beautiful surroundings; with private boat hire, canoe rental and sailing lessons and trips. Stand-up paddle boards also provide a fun way to enjoy this area of outstanding natural beauty.

There are excellent transport links to Truro and ferries over to the quaint harbour towns of St Mawes and Flushing. If guests wish to stay a little closer to home there is a selection of local pubs and restaurants just a few steps away. Muddy Beach Cafe, located on Jubilee Wharf is a fantastic tapas restaurant offering dinner with stunning views overlooking the wharf and just a two minute walk from the property, guests need not worry about eating too much!

Driftwood really is a fantastic property with a lot to offer, so if a cosy apartment with everything practically on its doorstep sounds ideal, look no further!

Thank you for a wonderful two weeks in ‘Driftwood’. Very comfortable apartment & lovely decorations! Really lives up to its name! Great location to explore the areas around Cornwall – Many thanks!

Mr & Mrs Evans

Great time in Cornwall, Driftwood made a great base. Very comfortable apartment with everything you need. We were in Falmouth to drop our daughter off at Uni & decided to make a holiday out of it. We would definitely use Driftwood again!

Ursula & Robert Swales

Wonderful week in Driftwood, beautiful with stunning decoration absolutely loved it. Loved relaxing on the balcony and its the perfect base for surrounding areas and only five minutes from our daughters student house and two minutes to the bus stop for Falmouth – Perfect! Comfortable and well decorated and everything you could need in the kitchen, very well equipped. Clean & tidy and excellent presentation, would definitely stay again

The Hogans
The property was spotless and decorated to a high standard with lots of personal little touches that just blended all the themes together.
We absolutely loved the whole apartment and was so comfortable there, even the little touches of cushions and blankets to sit on the balcony everything was just so well thought out.
Our daughter is at Penryn uni so we will be going again next year and will definitely book Driftwood again if it’s free.
Many thanks for an excellent choice.

We recently enjoyed a week staying in this gorgeous apartment. It’s in a perfect location, a stone’s throw from the quay, overlooking the river and we woke to beautiful sunrises daily.  Penryn itself is quaint and appealing, with cafes, pubs, art galleries and cobbled streets to explore. The apartment is beautifully furnished and has everything you could ask for in a home, let alone a holiday let. Stylish furniture, fully equipped kitchen (including washing machine and dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso machine), en-suite bathroom, spacious family bathroom and thoughtful touches like electronic tea-lights to create a warm ambience (candles are not allowed), and blankets for use on the balcony if you like to sit outside.
This really is a luxurious place to spend some time in Cornwall and it’s ideally placed to get out and see the rest of the county.
I’d thoroughly recommend a stay here and we will be returning in the future!

Joyce & Brian Tilsley, Birmingham

Driftwood is a well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean apartment with views of Penryn harbour, it is situated just off of the main Penryn – Falmouth road but is quiet enough during the evening / night. Off street car parking is provided. Penryn town centre and the quay are a few minutes walk away with a handful of essential shops, 3 / 4 pubs and a couple of cafes / bistros, buses to Falmouth are plentiful with the stop right outside of the apartment at £4.50 return and takes about 10 minutes, alternatively taxis are about £6 with plenty of shops / restaurants / pubs and bars to be found in the centre of Falmouth. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would use again.

The Tilworth family

Ray & Jan Harris

Had a lovely week in this wonderful apartment. The apartment had everything we could need and is very thoughtfully decorated. We felt right at home and hope to stay here again in the future. With parking out front & a Cornish grocery store within walking distance, it was the perfect ‘home base’ for us to travel Cornwall. Thank you for a home away from home and a lovely week.

Tanja Love

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable & lovely apartment. Many thanks for the scones / jam / cream, what a wonderful welcome! We have enjoyed seeing the beautiful scenery & found everyone to be so friendly.

John & Jay Pearson

Best apartment I’ve stayed in for a very long time (& I’ve stayed in numerous holiday rentals) fabulously comfortable and well equipped, stylish marine décor & loved the Bose speaker!  Loved every moment of my stay and so glad I came across this apartment after much searching.  Lovely to wake up to quiet, restful river, sun streaming in and such ease of transport. Would choose Driftwood over any other Falmouth accommodation!  Thank you…

The Pennington family

Our second stay at Driftwood and it couldn’t have been better – the perfect stay in the perfect place!


Another wonderful stay at Driftwood, thankyou so much! We’ve made the most of our time visiting beaches and coves, re-visiting Glendurgan Gardens, exploring Truro and finding the lost gardens of Heligan – what a treat! It is always a pleasure to be here – see you again next year! 

The Ritchie family

Thank you so much for our stay in your lovely apartment.  You really have thought of everything to make the holiday experience complete.  We will definitely be back to enjoy more of the excellent hospitality we have had this week!

The Spencer family

We had a lovely week in Cornwall.  The apartment was the perfect base that we needed to enable us to explore and come back ‘home’ to relax.  The view from the balcony was lovely with a great feeling of tranquillity. Definitely somewhere we would come back to. 

The Balfourth family

A wonderful week spent in your wonderful apartment with the cream tea providing such a warm welcome.  There is so much to see and do here and no way does a week allow that!
