Driftwood Cottage dates back to the 1700s and is now a cosy holiday cottage perfect for family gatherings or a group of friends. Located on farmland near the pretty village of Bere Alston in the Tamar Valley, this rather quirky property is surrounded by nature and wildlife.
Inside, Driftwood Cottage has been traditionally furnished and can accommodate 5 people in one king size double bed and 3 singles. There’s a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living / dining area with a sofa that can convert to a double bed, if required. Outside there’s a lovely cottage garden which overlooks the valley and is equipped with a table and chairs for a spot of al fresco dining.
The River Tamar runs very close by and provides a perfect opportunity for fishing, boating and walking. You can launch all types of small craft, from kayaks and paddle boards to sailing dinghies. Larger boats can be moored up in the creek near the holiday cottage.
Driftwood Cottage is one of three holiday properties at this location, which is situated in a very popular part of rural Devon. All in all, Driftwood Cottage makes the perfect base for exploring Devon and Cornwall (a short hop to the west) and for enjoying all that the river and its beautiful surroundings have to offer.
