Please arrive from 4pm. You will have received a keysafe code to gain access. You will find 2 keys in the cottage for your use during your stay. The front door keys are quite unusual in that they operate in a horizontal position, so you can only remove them from the lock when they are returned to the horizontal position!

Back door: the key is in the door. Please keep it locked and the key in the door at all times unless you wish to open the door also bolt the inside of the back door.

Please ensure the keysafe key is locked back into the keysafe so it’s ready for use as required.

How to find the cottage!

You will access Malpas via Malpas Road from the main Truro roundabout. On arrival in Malpas village look out for Heron Inn pub on the left hand side. Once you see it look for a place to park up as driftwood is about 5 cottages away. Our entrance is the ONLY entrance with a metal gate at the bottom and is opposite the telegraph pole. You will find Driftwood  at the top of the short flight of shared steps on the right hand side.


Parking is available on the road outside the cottage. There are no parking restrictions in the village and parking is available on a first come first served basis. This does mean that at busy times of day (particularly in high season when the pub is busy with lunch and dinner service) it’s not always possible to park on Trenhaile Terrace, and you will need to park elsewhere in the village. This could be a short walk away, so as the road is quiet enough for you to stop at our gate, we suggest you drop off any cargo or passengers before moving the car to park.

On Departure

When departing, please check that none of your belongings have been left behind. If you discover you have left anything behind at the cottage, please contact us directly so arrangements can be made to return them. Please be mindful that these may incur postal charges. On departure, please make sure the back door is locked, leave both keys in the sitting room and pull the front door behind you.
