    “The property was very comfortable and furnished to a very high standard.”

    There was everything that we needed for our weeks stay.

    There was everything that we needed for our weeks stay. We enjoyed our stay very much and would consider coming back to the cottage on another trip.

The property

The peaceful village of Ashton lies just over a mile from the coastal path and picturesque sandy cove at Rinsey, where beach goers and surfers follow the winding footpath down towards the hidden sands and rock pools below the old mine stack that pin points this lovely piece of coastline. There is a family run pub within a short 2 minute stroll whilst Porthleven is just 3 miles from Driftwood Cottage, with its array of restaurants (including Rick Stein's), cafes, pubs and gift shops.

Walkers will delight in the stunning views from the coastal footpath leading to the nearby Loe Bar and beyond, and for those keen to catch their own supper, fishing trips leave from the harbour throughout the summer season.

Famous St Michael's Mount at Marazion and the ancient market town at Helston are a ten minute drive in opposite directions, whilst St Ives, Falmouth and Penzance can be reached within a 30 minute drive. A charming gated garden leads into this charismatic cottage that was once a traditional miner's cottage dating as far back as the 1800s.

Carefully restored with exposed granite walls and beamed ceilings, the rooms are full of character.

A wood burning stove creates a cosy atmosphere in the comfortable sitting room.

The well presented dining room has an open aspect into the well equipped kitchen where a stable door leads outside.

Stairs lead up to two very attractive bedrooms decorated to a high standard with the use of pastel shades and soft furnishings whilst the twin room has distant views of the sea.

There is an enclosed rear garden with attractive patio.

Off road parking available to the front of the property.

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
