Driftwood is a beautifully appointed property set in the Bere Peninsula with views, walks and a pool - what more could you ask for!

Located in a tranquil, rural setting on the beautiful Bere Peninsula, the tiny hamlet of Hewton nestles within a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the rolling fields that run down to the Tamar Estuary, which forms the Devon/Cornwall border. The properties are superbly appointed and a real credit to the owners. From the extensive 5-acre gardens there are the most spectacular views down the valley and over the river where yachts lie moored. The owners’ formal garden is beautifully landscaped and is home to many unusual and exotic plants, a koi pond and large, mature trees. The outdoor heated swimming pool is surrounded by decking and there are sun loungers and garden furniture for guests to relax on and admire the view. There is a large field towards the bottom of the gardens and a mature wooded valley. These properties offer complete tranquil relaxation in a truly picturesque setting - ideal for couples as well as those with children. On the doorstep are splendid walks, cycle routes and horse riding with tennis, golf, fishing, sailing and canoeing available locally. The ancient stannery town of Tavistock, Dartmoor and several NT properties (including Cotehele and Buckland Abbey) are close by, and the beaches of South and North Devon within an hour’s drive. Shops 2 miles.

Detached, contemporary, stylish property with full-length glass walls, oak and stone elements. High vaulted ceilings in living/dining room with French doors to large sundeck. Contemporary kitchen, slate floor. Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with roll-top bath, shower cubicle, toilet.

    Beautiful location and a cosy, private accommodation. The owners were very helpful and gave us some great info on things to do in the surrounding areas. The only negative was the extremely uncomfortable beds in which we could get very little sleep.

    Wonderful week at Driftwood, what a location & view, just beautiful! Bryony gave us a lovely welcome with great tips about what to do in the area. Fab chocolate cake & fudge left for us. The swimming pool was the real highlight of the week, it was amazing we all loved it. It was perfectly warm, decent size & went from 3ft to 8ft deep, just a few paces away from the cottage in a stunning setting. David also gave us great ideas for days out.

    A beautiful location with breathtaking views and a myriad of excellent walks from the house. The swimming pool was first class and sparkling. Pubs and shops need to be driven to. Local parishioners and priest very friendly.

    We have stayed here 3 times now, the only fault we found was the matress in the main bedroom had a dip and was not good, perhaps time for new one.

    This has been our 5th year at Driftwood as we love the cottage, amazing views and lovely people. We actually love the area so much if all goes well we will be moving to the next village, Bere Ferrers, soon. The only down side to this will be not going to Driftwood for our holiday again. Thank you for a lovely holiday
