Beautiful house perfect location had couple of problems but Louise sorted them very quickly with no trouble,had everything you could possibly need and more,was left a lovely bottle of prossecco, squash,chiclate,crisps and cookies what a lovely welcome. Parking was fine got parked every day and evening with no trouble,Beautiful sea view literally on your door step listening to sounds of the waves in bed at night,would have liked 2 double beds for the 4 of us as we slept in the singles beds comfy but too small that's just our preference though. Comfy sofas large table to sit and eat which was lovely for our evening meal. Terrace furniture nice but couple of sun loungers would have been good. I would score this property 9-10 as nothing is perfect only downfall is not many places to eat within walking distance we couldn't get in any so advise to book a table if eating out. Must try the fish and chip shop best one we've ever eaten been going there for years new owners but lovely still.

A few small details that could be put right. Got locked in the bathroom and had a panic attack handle on door loose thank goodness I wasnt in the cottage alone.Also my mother got locked in her bedroom the door handle difficult to open. The main lights in living area didnt work. But a beautiful cottage. Unfortunately Sandgate was not the the nice little village we expected it to be. But the sea view was beautiful. Also the shower was disappointing looks amazing but the water ran hot and cold.

We really enjoyed our stay at Driftwood, it was very cosy! 4.8/5
We really enjoyed our stay at Driftwood....it was well equipped with everything we needed. It also had very comfy beds and a nice shower! We stayed here during the winter months while we waited to move into our new home, and it was very cosy and very well located, being minutes from the beach and some lovely walks. The owner was very nice and so was the agent.

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.

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.

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.

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 cant 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!
