DriftwoodDriftwood is a lovely newly refurbished 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment on the edge of the river finished to a high standard with reserved parking and views across the wharf.
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.

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
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!

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.

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.
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.
