Tony & Jerry
This fantastic 1 bedroom cottage is tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard. Ideal for a couple looking for that perfect Cornish break. Located on the A30 in the tiny hamlet of Drift just 2 miles from Penzance and 7 miles to Lands’ End it would make a perfect base for those wishing to explore this area. Additionally we have 2 guest rooms which form part of our own home which both have en-suite private bathrooms. They are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. As we operate on a room only basis to keep the price down we provide a kitchenette area for the guest to use while here. These rooms have access to the building via a private street entrance so that guests have privacy and can come and go as they please. There is also 2 free parking bays provided at the front of the property for the rooms. All rooms have Freeview TV and WiFi. The Cottage has its own dedicated parking space next to it. The property also benefits from free Wi-Fi and Freeview TV. The kitchen is well equipped for those looking for a self catering holiday. There is also a private decked area for our Cottage guest to use and enjoy the country views. Spacious and very comfortable.
Tony use to work as Air Cabin Crew whilst Jerry is an established artist. We have an art studio for guests to look around on request if they so wish. We love this area due to its close proximity to some great beaches and other beauty spots that West Cornwall has to offer. There are many places to go for walks along the coastal paths as well cycle. We have a small cute dog that uses our garden but is not allowed on the decking area used by guests . As we live on site we like to communicate with our guests and be on hand wherever necessary to enhance their stay here while giving them privacy. For those who like art, Jerry is available to give one on one tutorials for a small fee. We have loved our first year of hosting guests here and very much look forward to doing so for many more years to come. We look forward to meeting you soon.
The cottage is located in a quiet Cornish hamlet called Drift. Its is easily assessible to many places. If you love the theatre then the Minack Outdoor theatre is approximately 15 minutes away. We are also close to surfing beaches and there are plentiful places for dining and drinking in nearby towns and villages. Mousehole the stunning fishing village is a mere 5 minute drive and a must see. We have compiled a list of some places to eat while visiting. St Ives is about a 20 minute drive away and a lovely to visit although feedback from passed guests is that they were happy to return to the tranquillity of here away from the hustle and bustle. St. Michaels Mount can be reached easily and we would recommend going at low tide so you can walk across the causeway. There are several events that go on in the area throughout the year for example The Glownan Festival in June in Penzance. We give updates on our facebook page (Old Workshop Cottage-Drift). Also close-by are some of the POLDARK film locations. Due to our rural location and lack of public transport we strongly recommend you have a car while visiting this part of Cornwall!!
