Just returned from a lovely stay at Driftwood Cottage. The attention to detail is superb and everything is thought of down to slippers to wear around the cottage. The seaside theme goes throughout the property adding to the holiday ambience. Contact with the owners was very efficient, and the treats awaiting us on our arrival were much appreciated. All the equipment you could need for your stay have been thought of and provided. With the parking permit provided we had no problem parking even on a bank holiday weekend. The cottage is in a great location for exploring Scarborough which we did mainly on foot, but the open topped bus along the promenade gave us a n enjoyable journey home from the North bay.
Lots to do and see on the doorstep.
We've been to Scarborough many times before over the past ten years and usually stay in the North Bay Area, so this was a change for us.
The Driftwood Cottage was lovely - beautifully decorated, homely and very well presented in the harbour area of the town - close to the shopping area; and only a quick walk down steps to get to the sea front; so great for morning runs along the harbour area. We will definitely be booking again!
Special thanks to Ruth and Marc for additional treats of chocolates, a pint of milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine! What a bonus! :) Thank you!
Imagine waking up in a dreamy seaside cottage to the view of Scarborough Castle out your window. Set a foot out the front door and watch the sea lapping just a very short stroll away. Now imagine all of that is not even the best you are getting from this rental. Not only is Driftwood Cottage decorated to perfection and in immaculate condition, yet cosy and welcoming, the owners seem to have perfected the art of hospitality. You get the boutique hotel experience in a family friendly ideal location. Now go let another place, we want this one for ourselves!
Lovely little cottage in a great location in Scarborough. Owner seems to have thought of everything needed to provide the perfect stay with some nice little unexpected extras. Cosy downstairs lounge and kitchen with two good sized bedrooms upstairs. I'd happily stop here again given the chance and would definitely recommend to family and friends.
Many thanks for a great stay.
We have often stayed in B&Bs in Scarborough, but for no particular reason decided to look for self catering accommodation this time around and spotted the listing for this lovely little cottage. We're very glad we did. Beautifully turned out and well equipped, a fantastic location only minutes walk from either the harbour or the castle, great communication and thoughtful extras left by Ruth the owner - it met all our needs and then some. We would love to return - and can only hope the weather will be as glorious next time around!
