“Tastefully modernised romantic coastal cottage”

person found this review helpful

Having stayed in other cottages in Staithes I can confidently say that Driftwood sits amongst the best and is of a gold standard when it comes to holiday cottages. We stayed at Driftwood cottage for 3 nights at the end of January/beginning of February. Driftwood is an old cottage that has been thoughtfully and attractively modernized. It is beautifully decorated with wonderful attention to detail. Little things that we loved included the gorgeous hand wash next to the sink. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding and cushions looked gorgeous. There’s also a fabulous en-suite shower in the top floor double bedroom. My parents came to stay whilst we were there and they found the single beds very comfortable and they had there own bathroom as well.

Jacqui and her husband were a great help when we were unsure about the heating and came round with an extra bag of wood for the wood burning stove, which we thought was a very kind thing to do and was an example to us of the great attention to detail that they give as cottage owners. Once the heating was on the cottage was snug and wonderfully warm. It’s in a great location situated on the harbor next to the Cod and Lobster and it has immediate access to the village and surrounding facilities (there’s a little café round the corner that does great cappuccinos and tasty bacon sandwiches). Its location also makes it easy to drop off suitcases. The cottage also has great Wi-fi connection.

“Beautiful little retreat”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

On looking at the photos of the cottage, we (4 girls travelling to celebrate a birthday) were looking forward to our post Xmas & new year break. However, on walking into the cottage, our expectations were greatly exceeded.
It is so beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, the layout is cleverly thought out and it is so comfortable and well equipped too. As a bonus there were lovely Christmas decorations up.
On top of that we were a stones throw from the beach and pub, and a short walk (albeit uphill) from the co-op.
Thing to note for visitors, is that car parking is at the top of the hill, but there is a place to unload outside of the cottage so it doesn't prove a problem and the hill offers great views over the harbour.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Just returned from driftwood and was very sad to leave. We had a wonderful, relaxing break. The cottage is very tastefully decorated, immaculately presented and everything was thought of from underfloor heating to plenty of logs for the fire. Location was brilliant, i Would highly recommend to everyone! And we will definitely return. Thank you

“Perfect New Year break”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Two couples hired the cottage for New Year break and we were delighted with the beautiful cottage, which is excellent in all ways. Midnight 31/12 was spent on the harbour with locals, toasting champagne watching fireworks.
Really lovely way to spend New Year.

“Five Star Cottage”
Reviewed 27 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Just had a fabulous Christmas in Driftwood cottage. This cottage is immaculate throughout and looked even better with the lovely Christmas decoration's already in place. Everything was supplied for our comfort and could not be better. Only a few paces from the sea and lots of lovely walks. The friendly Cod and lobster pub was only across the lane yet was quiet at night. This all made for a perfect Christmas break.
