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...

How to get there
Please be aware that as you get closer to Seaton SatNavs may take you an alternative route which does involve some very narrow country roads, where there are few passing places. This is the route we recommend coming from Plymouth along the A38, follow signs to Looe. At the Trerulefoot roundabout, take the first exit to Looe onto the A374. After approximately a mile turn right to Looe and Seaton Valley Country Park on the A387. At the village of Hessenford turn left (opposite the Copley Arms Pub) and follow the valley road into Seaton (B3247).
