Extras and Experiences


Perfect 5/5

Driftwood Cottage was wonderful. The owner Louise was very helpful when called with a question. The cottage was furnished very tastefully and so comfortable and contained everything we required. The views from the cottage were amazing and were the icing on the cake.

Two nights at Driftwood 3.7/5

Gorgeous location, breathtaking views! Driftwood is a really lovely cottage, very cute! The house needed a little maintenance and was expensive for what it was, arrived at 2.30 on Wednesday and had to be out by 10.30 Friday. For what we paid , it felt rushed. I think I expected more as we paid a lot.

A great week 4.7/5

Wonderfully located right on the sea front, beautifully decorated and furnished, equiped with all we could need and easy parking. Aided by marvelous weather we had a great week at Driftwood Cottage.

2 days at Driftwood 5/5

We really enjoyed our stay. Having the sea on the doorstep was a real draw for us and it didn't disappoint in terms of morning and evening dips, drinks with the setting sun and walks along the beach. We also really appreciated the flexibility shown by the owner. Our journey to the property was quicker than anticipated and she was happy for us to check in about an hour before the formal time. Similarly, we were allowed to check out in the early afternoon, because there was no booking following us. This was just great news and really added to the quality of our stay.

Beautiful location 4.7/5

Stunning location and lovely property - didn't want to leave. Would certainly come here again for a summer break.

Stunning on the seashore cottage 5/5

We had an amazing time at the Driftwood cottages. Very good communication from the owners. The decor is beautiful and immediately as you walk in you can see the sea from the kitchen and living room windows. In fact, every room has a sea view, even upstairs in the bathroom and master bedroom. The cottages were immaculate and a welcome goodie bag was left which was a wonderful surprise. We will be back again 100%

A very pleasant stay 4.7/5

We had a very good relaxing stay. The cottage is charming and right on the beach and the neighbourhood is very friendly and welcoming. The parking can be a bit tricky on nice days when lots of people come to the beach.

Beautiful beach front locaton 5/5

What a gem of a find. Perfectly located with the beautiful Sandgate beach literally in your backyard.

Wonderful cottage, perfect location 5/5

We had such a wonderful stay at Driftwood. Waking up to sea views did wonders for our family. Very clean and comfortable with plenty of homely touches throughout. The welcome wine and biscuits were such a lovely touch. We can’t wait to come back again next year.

Lovely chilled family weekend 4.8/5

What a gorgeous property - right on the beach. Great for wondering along the beach and up the High Street - popped over to Folkestone to the Harbour Arm - ten mins away. Lovely equipped kitchen, beautiful bedrooms and bathroom - really authentic. All loved lounging in the garden looking at the sea with a cool beer. Great hosts. Perfect!
