“Excellent location,comfortable and well equipped”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is our 3rd stay at Driftwood. All the family love it. The apartment is very well equipped ,the children are well catered for with plenty of toys and games . The location is great with stunning views of the bay. Parking places across the road are a bonus.

“Fabulous sea view”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Driftwood apartment is really well equipped and comfortable which made self catering easy. It was very clean and nicely furnished and decorated; warm and cosy. With two bathrooms, it is ideal for a large family group or two couples with children. The best thing about it is the sea view. There is a road between the apartment and the beach but you hardly notice that as when you sit in the lounge with windows across the whole length on the first floor, you can watch the tide come in and out. We loved the village of Sandsend. On the bus route if you want to leave the car behind. Two parking spaces directly opposite were available for our sole use. It takes about an hour to walk into Whitby along the beach or a bit longer if tide is in and you walk part way along the road. There is one small shop and a pub and a few cafes in the village. Apartment owners were helpful, generous with and responded quickly thank you.

“Fantastic apartment with stunning views”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a wonderful stay in the apartment which had everything we needed and more. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable and there were lots of thoughtful touches provided by the owner, like the beach towels, buckets and spades, binoculars and a plentiful supply of tea, milk & chocolate biscuits. The view from the lounge is amazing, it even makes inclement weather bearable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return.Thank you very much.

“Fantastic location and amenities”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This apartment is right by the sand and beach at Sandsend so is ideal for families or anyone wanting a beach holiday without all the trappings such as amusement arcades. There are two super cafes nearby and the apartment has everything you need. There is a washing machine, tumble drier and a fully fitted kitchen. The views fro. The lounge are right across the bay and are superb first thing in the morning as well as last thing at night. You can come off the beach for lunch in your apartment thus avoiding sandy sandwiches! I can definitely recommend this location and apartment.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The apartment was great. It was clean, spacious and very well equipped. My grandson loved the contents of the toy box! We arrived to find fresh flowers, chocolate biscuits and stocks of tea,sugar, coffee etc waiting for us.
The location was fabulous with great views that were so relaxing.
The beach was just across the road, handy when you have small children.
All the family loved it and we will be booking again.

“Fantastic location and views”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Wonderful location with fantastic sea/beach views from the lounge. The apartment was large and spacious and had every conceivable item you could ever want from teabags to a tumble dryer. Super clean and heaps of towels. The parking space can easily fit two cars, four if you park behind each other.
Would stay again in a heart beat. Would highly recommend.
