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. The Old Bank 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.

Could be a lovely place to stay if maintain
Perfect place to stay if not into cleanliness and have no sense off smell, avoid lower two bedroom if you do, as smells of stale toilet fills the two rooms as no windows or no ventilation!!! Lock does not lock on lower bedroom and missing glass on shower (Pictures to follow as not uploading)
Great cottage, perfect location, everything you need!
We stayed here for a week at the end of August. The cottage itself was situated in an excellent location right in the heart of Mevagissey. The cottage slept 10 people easily and was perfect for two families given the layout of the accommodation, The small terrace was great for early evening drinks in the sun. Everything was available in the cottage, a great home from home. Owners very friendly and responded to any requests we had. Would definitely recommend.
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!
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.
