“An absolute gem of a cottage in a prime spot in Staithes!”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Cannot recommend Driftwood enough! Felt really well looked after from the initial booking until the end of the holiday. The cottage is perfect; cosy with a modern feel. The log burning stove was a lovely treat after days spent beach-combing in chilly April. The added bonus of WiFi kept the teenagers happy too! It's proximity to the sea and the "Cod & Lobster" make it the ideal base for a seaside break. There are several nice places to eat within walking distance and the beach is literally on the doorstep. Will definitely return - the nicest seaside cottage (by far) we've ever stayed in!

“Fabulous Driftwood Cottage”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Driftwood cottage is a great modern cottage in Staithes with lovely sea views. The cottage is spotlessly clean and well maintained. We stayed for 5 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Myself, husband, 4 year old son and my mother all loved the cottage and its location. It was lovely and warm and had everything at hand to make our stay easy and enjoyable. Lovely touches like wine and fridge magnet of old Jack for our son greeted us on our arrival. We would not hesitate to return and will recommend this super cottage to all our friends.

“Amazing location, lovely cosy cottage”
Reviewed 2 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Huge thanks to Jacqui for being so attentive and flexible - as you might expect from someone who takes the trouble to phone before the stay, the cottage was very well thought out & spotless. The fire was so warming and the cottage retained its heat so we were toasty all weekend whilst it blew a gale outside! The furniture was lovely and comfortable, and the cottage was so well decorated. We enjoyed the luxury items like the TVs in bedrooms and the dishwasher, all which made our stay even more pleasant. Unfaultable!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 24 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

What a lovely cottage! So cosy yet modern, clean and fabulously kitted out. We were lucky with the weather but would have been happy to sit in with a roaring fire and watch movies. Great base for exploring Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay, Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors Railway and much more. Will hopefully be returning next summer.
