“Had a great stay”
Reviewed November 25, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The house was nicely decorated and to a high standard having been recently refurbished. The view from the lounge is awesome facing the sea and the sunset so you have the light streaming in all afternoon.

Christine is very welcoming and very helpful and was kind enough to supply a high chair for us.

Seaford is quite but has everything you need for a quiet short stay and eastbourne is only 20-30min drive away if you're looking for a bigger town outing.

Overall I would highly recommend.

“Very nice flat with a great view”
Reviewed October 11, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

The flat has been recently renovated so the place looks great and all the appliances are new. The kitchen is very nicely stocked, good pots, pans...lots of dishes, cutlery etc. The beach is right across the road, sunsets were spectacular. You can hear the waves as you go to sleep...bed was very comfy.
Christine was awesome, she had the place ready early for us on our arrival and was always available for questions throughout our stay.
Seaford is a nice town with quaint little shops and a good variety of restaurants. The train gives you easy access to other communities along the coast as well. Newhaven Fort was a good trip.
All in all we had an excellent time and would highly recommend staying at the Driftwood.

“Perfect”
Reviewed September 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We spent an unforgettable week in Driftwood House. A wonderful place to stay with a stunning view. All was very new and clean, well equipped and the owner has a really good taste. The beds are absolutely comfortable. We loved the deck and the everyday sunshine and the many possibilities for hiking trips. Thanks very much for the warm welcome and the cosy home which was home from home.
