This traditional, family owned Cornish hotel also has an onsite restaurant and microbrewery. Driftwood Spars is ideally situated in St Agnes, a place of complementary contrasts, from wooded valleys and deep dark tin mines, to light and airy seascapes. There are carnivals, fetes and fairs, music and theatre, regattas and fishing contests going on throughout the year.

There are also numerous interesting galleries, potteries and design workshops. Pubs and eating-places abound and the village is famous for its old pubs, including the Railway, a cosy bar, famous for its collection of old shoes and memorabilia. The hotel is a 17th century building full of history.

The name ?Driftwood Spars? hints at its local history - the ceiling beams in the bars contain spars from some of the ships that have been wrecked in Trevaunance Cove, the local beach. All of our well equipped rooms are ensuite and some boast wonderful views. Plenty of parking is available and there is free wifi for guests in the main building.

Please note some rooms are located in the annex across the (quiet) road these do not have wifi, but are very suitable for dog owners. In November 2008 the Driftwood Spars was awarded for it's pub dining experience, it gained a 'Taste of the West' Silver award for 2008.
