Driftwood House is situated in the centre of the village, and was once the first bank of Mevagissey.

The impressive Grade II listed property has been lovingly renovated to an exceptional standard to create a comfortable and characterful Cornish cottage. Driftwood house has accommodation arranged over three floors including six bedrooms, a stylish kitchen with central island and sitting room with an open fire on the first floor. The beautiful dining room has exquisite parquet flooring, panelled walls and a glazed ceiling overlooked by a balcony which leads from the bedrooms on the second floor. The house is just 100 yards from the harbour and is very close to all the harbour village of Mevagissey has to offer.


The Old Bank House is a brilliant place to stay with a large group or extended family. Comfortable, warm and well appointed it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. It is only seconds from two great pubs, The Fountain and The Ship. It is also only a few strides away from the picturesque Mevagissey harbour. The parking is only a short walk away in the Sunny Corner car park and although there are quite few vehicles that use the narrow road past the house once you're inside you don't notice them at all (although loud voice can be overheard if you're in the front downstairs bedroom). The dining room is unique with it's balcony and voiles providing a lovely setting for dinner. The kitchen has everything you need and the sitting room is very cosy with two large sofas. We had a wonderful time and loved every minute of our week long stay here.

A great location, it was close to lots of things so it was easy to go out for a meal/pub. It was beautiful light and airy accommodation with good views. We were a party of 5 and enjoyed the great space and lovely garden area.

Perfect retreat to spend time with friends and nice to have privacy. We'll be back!
Mrs Thornthwaite

The location of The Old bank House is excellent, being right in the heart of the town so no need to use a car once there. Great access to the harbour, shops, restaurants, pubs and all amenities. We were a large family party and the house gave us exactly what we were looking for - plenty of space and bedrooms (and bathrooms importantly) for everyone including a baby and good communal areas for eating and partying together. Good facilities in the kitchen such as three ovens, dishwasher, an island to sit around and loads of crockery, glassware and cooking utensils. We loved the walks around the harbour and around the coast path. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Old Bank House - it lived up to expectations and we will definitely consider it again for future family holidays.
