Location description from owner

The England region

It is said that Cornwall has its own micro-climate. It certainly is one of the warmest counties in the United Kingdom. There is so much to do for everyone: rugged coastlines to explore; sandy beaches to play on; historical places to visit and great local food and drink to enjoy.

The fishing village of LOOE not only lands some of the finest fish in the country, but also has a popular sandy beach and bustling harbour. Take a boat trip around LOOE ISLAND, try your hand at crabbing or enjoy some of the fine restaurants and cafes.

Further along the coast is TALLAND BAY, a picturesque Cornish bay with a delightful beach cafe that serves delicious homemade snacks and has kayaks to hire. TALLAND BAY is also a popular refuelling point for those walking the magnificent coast path from LOOE to POLPERRO.

The historic fishing village of POLPERRO is typically Cornish: narrow streets; small cottages; great pubs!

Heading east from Seaton on the breathtaking coast road, is the five mile stretch of beach called WHITSAND BAY which is a popular surfing destination and is also home to the award-winning restaurant 'The View', as featured on Channel 4's "Cornwall with Caroline Quentin". RAME HEAD is a tanalising hike away from WHITSAND, while further down the coast road is MOUNT EDGECOMBE estate with its gardens, tea rooms, walks and pedstrian ferry to PLYMOUTH.

Slightly further afield is the magical GOLITHA FALLS, windswept and mystical BODMIN MOOR, and the delightful town of FOWEY, which hosts the Daphne Du Maurier festival and annual Fowey Regatta. For those more adventurous, cycle along the CAMEL TRAIL to earn your fish and chips at Rick Stein's restaurant in PADSTOW.

And don't forget a day trip to the famous and educational EDEN PROJECT which is less than an hour's drive from Seaton.

Seaton

Seaton is an ideal location for families and those who love exploring the great outdoors: body boarding; kayaking; canoeing; snorkling; walking; cycling; bird watching; fishing; kite flying. Family facilties include a children's playground, brand new personal training equipment and boule court.

Seaton not only has a family and dog friendly beach with cafe, places to eat, pub and shop, but is at the heart of the expansive wetlands and nature reserve of Seaton Country Park - a designated area of natural beauty. Follow the river for 2 miles up the winding valley, past ponds, woods and beauty spots and you'll find the welcoming Copley Arms pub at HESSENFORD

Alternatively you can walk along the rugged shoreline to DOWNDERRY where there is a well-stocked local store/post office, the Inn on the Shore pub and fine dining at the Blue Plate Restaurant, which is highly recommended.

“superb property in wonderful location”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2015

As a family we have stayed in Seaton for 4 years now. It is a quiet village and this house is a stone's throw from the beach. This is easily the best property we have stayed in. Sally was an absolute pleasure to deal with meeting us and providing wine, strawberries and cake to welcome us. Driftwood is a spacious house, a real home from home. It was spotlessly clean and well appointed with plenty of space for the 8 of us. The location is ideal with a playground, basketball court, boules, a nature reserve and a great beach with rock pooling and great walks right where you stay. Waves is a lovely restaurant within walking distance and the beach cafe provides any food you could want. We will definitely go back - thank you Sally!

“You wont be disappointed”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2015

Arrived at Seaton to be met by the owners who took us round the property and showed us how everything worked even though us being nearly two hours later than we said we would arrive due to an accident en route. Property set on three floors with a ground floor en suite bathroom ( great for those who struggle with stairs) a large conservatory and a mini kitchen. Next floor three really good sized bedrooms two of which are en suite and the third has a walk across the landing for a Jacuzzi. Two of the front bedrooms have a balcony. Third floor has a large open plan lounge kitchen dinning room, all of which are very large. Quality of all furniture very good, beds surprised as they were top quality and not cheap beds you normally find in holiday rental properties. Great location with a large parking area at the front for up to three vehicles.

“stunning house in a great loction”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2015

We had a weeks stay at Driftwood with our grown up children and their partners in June 2015. It is a stunning large house in a brilliant location we felt like we had won the lottery. The beach is just across the road and is dog friendly which our two dogs really enjoyed. The house is well equipped and very clean,on arrival we were greeted by Sally the owner who showed us around and explained all we needed to know. You will not be disappointed staying here.

“Excellent location, lovely property ticked every box”

Reviewed 24 May 2015

We stayed here for 1 week to celebrate our fathers 80th birthday and were not disappointed. Sally was there to greet us and show us around and straight away we felt at home. The property was well appointed with fabulous views and everything you could need. The washing machine was a great bonus! The beds were very comfortable and 4 bathrooms were perfect for 7 adults trying to get ready for a night out! We ate at The Blue Plate in Downderry and can highly recommend it for fine dining and friendliness however we would recommend booking a table as it's very small. We also ate at the inn on the shore, lovely views and a nice pub but not great food very average. If you are looking for a lovely, modern, well appointed house with sea views, beach and nature trail walks for the dogs and two local pubs in staggering distance Driftwood will not disappoint.

“Wonderful accommodation,great location”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2015

As the title suggest we had a great stay at Driftwood the property is set in A great location with a lovely view out over the bay at Seaton .The house has everything you would need is well presented and the bedroom set up would cover a range of visitor options We would definitely recommend this property to others and would return when visiting the area again

“Wonderful”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2014

Ideal location,clean and tidy with everything you need in the kitchen including spare fridge for drinks, close to the beach and dog friendly, excellent restaruants nearby.

“Stunning in every way.”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2014

Right from the original booking to the end of our stay everything was brilliant. Sally was fantastic and very helpful when we had to re arrange our arrival day at short notice. The house is beautiful and so big. Views are stunning and the beach is on your doorstep. The beach cafe and copley arms are a must. We have stayed in excess of 30 places in Devon and Cornwall and this is without doubt on a very short list of re visits in the future. We stayed just out of high season but the area was still busy so the only down side i could see is that in high season it would be very busy. If you dont mind that then its perfect. Many Thanks and apologies it took so long to write the review.

“A perfect house in a perfect location”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2014

I spent a week in the lovely driftwood in August with my husband & 2 daughters (13&10) and my brother in laws family & 2 sons (7&5). The house was modern and spacious with amazing views of the sea. It's location was perfect. Outside was a play park and lots of green fields to play football & cricket which then led you to seaton valley country park which apparently (as we didn't manage to do it) you can walk approx 2 miles through the woods and end up at a lovely pub called the Cobbley Arms. Looe was only a 10 minutes drive away & polperro was a further 10 minutes. Both little picturesque towns. We had a great day out at mount edgecumbe which was a scenic 30 mins drive where we played frisby golf and then we got the little boat across to Plymouth. We also went to adrenaline quarry & all of us braved the zip wire even the little 5 year old! I would highly recommend driftwood as it's a great base for sightseeing but also a perfect village to stay in.

“Wonderful House, great location.”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2014

We stayed at Driftwood for the first week of August, Seaton is very small and the house is in a great location, it overlooks a children's play area, then wonderful views over the sea. I used to like lying in bed looking at the view, watching the waves or the small fishing boats moving out from Looe in the distance. The house is very comfortable and well equipped with the living room and kitchen on the top floor and the bedrooms on the middle and ground floor, we were a group of six adults with two young children and had plenty of room, each bedroom effectively having a bath/shower. The beach is dark gravelly and has great rock pools when the tide is out, the river runs into the sea and is great for the children to play in. We were close enough to the beach for us to return to the house for sandwiches / drinks ice creams etc, although there is a good beach cafe, restaurant and pub which does table service or takeaway.

“totally chilled - longer stay next year!”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2014

Another super holiday! Thank you Sally for you very warm welcome. Driftwood, as last year, provided us with a fabulous base and comfortable stay. Due to the heatwave we didn't feel the need to venture too far. We swam everyday (without wetsuits) played boules on the boules pitch near the house and sought the cool and shady valley for our evening walks. Early supper at the beach cafe with BYO drinks (glasses supplied by cafe) enabled us to enjoy the sea views with our favourite tipple. Seaton has been a joy! A short beach walk up to Downderry takes you to The Blue Plate. A superb restaurant which also has a lovely deli for home cooked produce to bring home. Try Str.eat PL13 in Looe for great coffee and enormous crab sandwiches. Will most definitely be back next year!
