This apartment is a delight. Wonderful views of the sea from bedroom and living room windows and furnished and fitted to a very high standard. There were so many extras which we didn't expect. Absolutely perfect for 3 generations including 4 year old and baby.
Will definitely return!!

“amazing views, so relaxing, everything you need and more, very comfortable”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at driftwood during the first week of Easter 2014. Key collection was straightforward and we found wine and chocolates to welcome us. Parking is conveniently situated opposite the apartment. There are pubs, restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance, not to mention a large sandy beach.

We were a group of three adults and four children and found the apartment to be spacious enough. We spent most of the holiday on the beach, though, as the weather was so good. There are stunning sea views from all rooms with the beach literally across the road from the apartment. The apartment was clean and comfortable for all of us. The beds in particular must have been good quality because they didn't leave me crippled like those in most holiday accommodation.

The owner was very helpful, particularly when the DVD player in the living room wasn't working.

Our stay was most enjoyable. If you like a sea view and a comfortable spot to view it from, I would highly recommend this apartment.

“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.

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.
