“Stunning beach side house with amazing views”
Reviewed October 28, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We booked the house for a week in October. The house is beautiful, contemporary in style, with good quality furnishings and neutral colours. Well equipped and with matching number of bathrooms to bedrooms it works really well. All the rooms are spacious and the balconies offer amazing views over Seaton beach and perfect position for a sunset too! We enjoyed the open plan and upside down living which afforded the living room with the best views! It’s a great location for exploring Cornwall and a local shop, decent restaurant and pub are all just along the road. The beach is dog friendly and there are numerous walks to explore including coastal paths and a nature walk (off road and wheelchair friendly). There is also an outdoor gym, basketball court and play area nearby. Sally the owner met us at the property on arrival to show around and communicated very well about weather alerts (we arrived during a storm) and answered any queries we had. A pleasure to stay here and would highly recommend.

“Relaxing haven”
Reviewed September 9, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Booked at the last minute and never been to Seaton before, but we loved it. Driftwood is very well furnished and there is everything you need to self cater for the week and more, although the restaurants and cafes nearby are really good value and excellent food (especially Waves). Sally was waiting for us when we arrived to show us around. The bedrooms are spacious (no full length mirror in the master bedroom but wasn't a major problem) and the beds were very comfy. Two teenage sons appreciated the wi-fi. Check out the conservatory, it's a sun trap but the weather was so nice we spent most of the time on the beach. The country park is a lovely contrast to the beach, so you have the best of both worlds. Would definitely recommend.

“Lovely”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Over 3 storeys this is well fitted out and comfortable house - its just over the road from the beach and a play park is opposite. There is a pub and restaurant almost next door. Its got good wifi and TV.
Sally is really easy to deal with and helpful.

“Fabulous home from home a stone's throw from the beach”
Reviewed August 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Driftwood quite literally has everything we need in a holiday home. A fantastic fortnight spent with our extended family in a wonderful house in a fabulous location. The views are simply stunning. The house is well equipped and Sally is an absolute pleasure to deal with, all contact is professional, friendly and prompt. The beach is a joy with a river running through it where our children can safely play and great rockpools. There are many lovely walks from the property and some great restaurants and pubs nearby - The Blue Plate and Waves to name a couple. Book this - you will not be disappointed!

Beautiful beach house in an excellent position right on the beach. Family went to celebrate a 50th Birthday and it couldn't have been better. Very well equipped, good condition, exceptionally clean and to top it all....fabulous views and dog friendly! All hoping to return again next year.

“Relaxing half term break, stunning location”
Reviewed February 14, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A very enjoyable week in Seaton, weather better than expected.
We loved the fabulous views, and walked on the beach every day. Discovered some new places to visit, especially Mount Edgcumbe where we caught the ferry to the Royal William yard. Found a great bakery, will definitely return, hopefully for breakfast next time.
The house was spacious and comfortable, really nice to be met and welcomed by the owners. Planning to be back in the summer to see Seaton in all its glory, although we do like to see it out of season as well. A real favourite of ours in an undiscovered part of Cornwall. Hoping it will long stay that way!
