“Sitting in privates acres, this chic and intimate hotel overlooks stunning Gerrans Bay. Light, marine inspired rooms are the perfect example of comfort meets plush. A Michelin Star at the restaurant makes dining a spoiling yet casual affair, matched by a fine wine list. A dream Cornish location.”

Hotel Overview

“In summer Driftwood feels more Côte d’Azur than Cornwall, with Mediterranean views and a perfect crescent of private beach at the end of the garden. Inside, it has the air of a stylish Provençal house, while halfway down the cliff there’s a romantic cabin, perfect for lovers, and a pavilion for a private lunch or an aromatherapy massage. Bedrooms are charming and the food is superb. A very special place.”

  • Foodies
  • Michelin starred menus constructed by Adam Eden with love, care and flare for flavour.
