On arrival at Driftwood we were overwhelmed by the sea view and surrounding area , superb!!! As we entered the cottage we were delighted , the furnishings and the kitchen , bedroom and shower room all done to a high standard and SPOTLESS. There is a super little cafe and shop on site too , i can't fault this place at all . WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!!!!!

A beautifully maintained and appointed chalet with stunning views over the bay. Spent 4 wonderful days walking and relaxing, quite perfect. The landlords were especially warm and welcoming, thank you very much.

“A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just had a beautiful few days at Driftwood. We wanted somewhere chilled with views of the sea. Tick! and not just any old views, 180 degree views that take your breath away. The view alone is enough to make us go back but the chalet was just perfect too. Well decorated, well kept, cosy and luxurious (not what you'd expect of a chalet). Terry the owner was there to great us, informative and helpful. A small well priced cafe/restaurant only 30 seconds away and a small shop if you need something basic but don't want to drive to Plymstock. Great for walks (although we didn't) as right on the coastal path. Not suitable for the less able as the steps down to the beach are a bit of a mission but there was another beach with a slope further along the estate. It was a bit in the middle of nowhere so be prepared to drive places as there isn't much in the vicinity and the lanes aren't for the faint hearted but if you stock up at the supermarket there really isn't any reason to leave that wonderful view. We would definitely recommend.

“Absolutely idyllic”
Reviewed 17 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed at 'Driftwood' for just 4 nights and so wish we could have stayed the whole week.

As with previous reviews a 5 star rating is given as the standard of accommodation and attention to detail plus the location and truly spectacular unrivalled sea views provide all anyone could wish for in a 'get-away from it all' break. We were fortunate to have fantastic weather for swimming and cliff walking and just enjoying the superb views from the chalet's front terrace. However even off season or with not such good weather I am sure a week spent here would be just as relaxing and unforgettable

For anyone looking for a quiet retreat this is the place. No need to even use the car.

We will definitely want to return and for a full week next time

“Perfection”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent a fantastic week here in August. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed by our hosts and made to feel very much at home. The accommodation is just as described and you really need to visit to fully appreciate the views from the front patio or large sea-facing window. The finishes and facilities are among the best I've seen. The small rear terrace is perfect for coffee on a sunny morning too, with its array of plants and shrubs.

There is a lovely cafe about 30 seconds walk away, which serves great coffee and meals, with friendly staff too. The SW Coast Path is literall just in front of the property for those who wish to explore the coaost further.

If you are looking for a quiet relaxing break, this is ideal. We can't wait to return!
