Brilliant Week & Relaxing Cosy Cottage
We stayed in Driftwood in October 2017, a family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 7 and 3. We had a great week. We were very lucky with the weather as it was sunny for half the week. We spent the mornings chilling out in the cottage. We didn?t have any problems with lay ins or with noise from Granny's Cottage, in fact they were very nice and did great sausage butties and a half cake for us! Driftwood has a real relaxed feel about the place, a proper beach hideaway. We loved the white painted walls, the open dinning room with the sun coming in through the glass doors and the living room with the huge sofas. My 2 boys would spread out on there together and read or watch films in the afternoon while me and my husband sat and drank tea, talked of afternoons out and read. The sun coming in through the windows and the heaters on, made it wonderful and cosy. Perfect to come back to after a few hours surfing. The cottage is so close to the beach, about 3-5 mins walk - and that is with a slow 3 year old! We all loved the surfing. The private garden at the back was great for stripping off wet wetsuits, throwing them over the washing line to dry and diving into the cottage and the warm shower before tea and cake lounging around. We tried to book again for the summer but it was fully booked. Writing this review now (March 2018) as I was about to book again for April and remembered I?d not reviewed. The only down side to this cottage was a mild damp smell in the small bunk bed room, but this could have been because of the time of year. We had the heater on in there and it helped. But otherwise loved our stay.

Unrestful stay
Photographs don't offer proper justice to this wonderfully airy and well lit property, which is also so close to the beach. However the cafe directly opposite ("Granny's") makes sleep impossible from 8:30am, which includes SUNDAYS. This is a regular and sustained alarm call of over 20 minutes as plastic furniture is needlessly and very inconsiderately dragged around each morning. There is no reasoning to be had with the Cafe owners who feel everyone should be up by 8:30am (presumably in the same way everyone is forced to listen to the uncontrolled barking of their dog). Sadly such a poor neighbour made this otherwise fantastic holiday somewhere to never return for us. A holiday should include peace and sleep, that is also without the barking of an agitated dog. Granny's Cafe has certainly cost our repeat business.
