Driftwood Hotel up for sale


One of Cornwall’s most iconic clifftop hotels has gone on the market.

Christie & Co is seeking offers of £3 million for the freehold of the Driftwood Hotel, perched along the South West Coastal Path and boasting sweeping sea views over Gerrans Bay.

The “New England inspired” hotel features 14 rooms, a restaurant and a three-bedroom owner’s house, along with landscaped gardens and five-acre grounds down to a private beach.

The current owners, Paul and Fiona Robinson, have decided to list the hotel to seek retirement. Paul Robinson said: “It has been a tremendous experience to own and manage the Driftwood. We have met some wonderful and fascinating guests and worked with some fantastic staff and suppliers.

“However, after 22 years, Fiona and I feel it is time to let someone else take the hotel with its amazing location to the next level.”
