“Incredible apartment in an ideal spot”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I have reviewed Driftwood before and it is as good as ever. The bedrooms are well furnished and the linen is luxurious. The main bathroom is clean, warm and contemporary. The kitchen is very well equipped and clean. The living area is fairly small but there is enough seating and a large TV. And above all there is a terrific view through large windows. The whole place is well maintained and there are lots of books, games etc. Wifi is also available.

Access to Whitby is easy as the bus stops outside the apartment and the taxi fare home is about £7 (the buses stop about 19.30 I think). Or you can walk in along the beach. The pub a few doors away does reasonable inexpensive pub food although it closes Sunday evening and there are a few cafés within easy reach. Parking is really convenient over the road although we never turned a wheel all weekend.

Ideal for families, couples, groups - something for everybody.

“Wow! what a location”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Superbly equipped and extremely comfortable apartment. The views from all rooms are great but from the lounge are exceptional. If you enjoy the ever changing sea vista this is a fabulous place to stay. Sandsend is a lovely unspoilt seaside village with a brilliant beach where you can spend hours exploring the rock pools. There are cliff top walks on the Cleveland Way, wooded walks on the Mulgrave Estate and a beach walk to Whitby, all immediately accessible. A haven for couples and families with young children.

“Superb family celebration”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This was a superb location for our family celebration to enjoy the sea, beach, and walks along the cliffs and in Mulgrave woods. We also had some excellent meals from the variety of cafes and restaurants nearby. The accomadation was first class, everything was provided including buckets, spades, binoculars and a surf board! This was a very memorable and enjoyable holiday location where we could see and hear the sea, it was briiliant.

Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The apartment is lovely and very comfortable and clean. The location is perfect and the view is amazing. The only improvement to our holiday would have been to stay longer.

“Fabulous family holiday”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is a beautiful apartment, with stunning views outside and a lovely quality finish inside. It was a real home from home and everything you might need is provided. There was also a great supply of buckets and spades and toys for younger guests. Our little one loved being so close to the beach and we enjoyed a glass of wine and the view as the sun went down. A great place for a seaside holiday.
