The Premises 

Striking the perfect balance between accessible and remote, the main house of this boutique hotel has an incredible setting, high on a Cornish cliff with spectacular views over the bay and Driftwood Hotel's own private beach. From the outside it doesn’t look out of the ordinary, but the interior has been given a great deal of thought: the furnishings have a comfortable, homely feel, in blues and creams and natural woods – all very, very tasteful. (Please note that unfortunately there's no availability for July or August)

In terms of both size and sea views, Room 10 wins hands-down: it’s the biggest room in the hotel, and boasts double aspect vistas and a snug little vantage spot. Room 11 (a Deck Room), has French windows opening onto a private deck overlooking the gardens and the sea beyond.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

Chef Chris Eden was formerly at the Square, and uses fresh, local and organic ingredients when available to produce his Michelin-starred Modern European menu; highlights include wonderful fish and seafood and home-made bread. The exceptional spread means the restaurant, which is open for breakfast and dinner only, gets very busy; we strongly recommend booking a table in advance of your stay.

Liquid Bliss 

There’s a wee little bar next to the restaurant, serving all the usual tipples till midnight, but you could also take a glass of chilled wine onto the deck or the lawn and soak in that gorgeous view from a comfortable steamer chair.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Make a boat trip to the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth – the journey itself is worthwhile; the foot-passenger ferry from St Mawes’ fishing harbour. Surfing is becoming the Cornish national pastime. The Extreme Academy in Newquay has the UK’s only ski resort on a beach and also organises waterskiing, windsurfing and more. Art-lovers will enjoy a nose around The Gallery Portscatho or, a little further away, Tate St Ives. The Eden Project is interesting enough to make a detour worthwhile, as are the mysterious Lost Gardens of Heligan.



Exeter aiport is two hours from the hotel. From London Gatwick, daily flights head west to Newquay in only an hour.


Train stations close to the hotel include St Austell and Truro (both under 30 minutes away).


From the M5, you can use the A30 to get further west right up until the B3275, when you’ll need to follow signs to Ladock. After that, use the A3078 towards Tregony/St Mawes.
