Lovely well maintained property in a terrific area.
The property is very nice and maintained to a high degree with very good coordinated decor. Situated conveniently for Cumbria and the Lake District.

Beautiful Cottage and Location
We have stayed at Driftwood twice now. With family in Silverdale and elsewhere in Lancashire, we travel and stay in the north often and try and book a cottage once or twice a year for an extended stay. We decided to stay here for two weeks at Christmas 2020, and had a lovely time. The owners got in touch to ask if we would like it decorated and of course we said yes, we had a three yo! However I never expected a large real tree! Plus Christmas trinkets on every shelf. Really made the stay feel wonderful and homely. On both stays we were grateful to receive wine and treats and complimentary nespresso. It was a very welcome stay, we were very lucky to get away with tier restrictions falling around us, but so very important for us to be able to see our family again through windows. I did manage to see my Grandma who passed away at the end of the trip, that opportunity was just so precious to me. The views from the bay were beautiful and peaceful and the cottage so homely so we decided to rebook the same cottage for our end April trip! Once more the cottage was pristine and peaceful! We knew the area was beautiful; but over the two trips we did discover a lot more than before, spending more time in Arnside than we usually do. It's convenient for places like NT Sizergh, RSPB Leighton Moss, there is a deer park to walk through, the Safari Zoo is a great day out, it's close to the Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway, is quite rightly an area of outstanding natural beauty in its own right (Arnside Knott, Pepperpot, Woodwell...) and it isn't too far to peak bag in the lakes. You?ll have a lovely time. Pics: The Bore from Arnside pier, a Sunset from the living room and a view of the front garden.

Gorgeous cottage...gorgeous views...gorgeous treats round every corner
Just returned from four nights at this gem of a cottage. Beautifully kitted out and extremely clean. Lovely welcoming touches. Had some fantastic days out locally and further afield in Lakes which are in easy reach. Would definitely visit again! Highly recommended!

Perfection !
Driftwood is a treasure! We returned home refreshed by the beauty of Cumbria and the many comforts of this lovely home. The magnificent views are a joy-a living landscape of nature at its best. Do not miss this but not in Oct as we will be there !

Delightful property
Driftwood is a lovely property and has captivating views across the estuary. It was spotlessly clean and had lots of welcoming touches. We really liked the local area, especially Arnside and did a couple of stunning walks from there. Milnthorpe is also very close and has a good Booth's supermarket. It is also easy to visit local visitor attractions such as Sizergh Castle and the foodie village of Cartmel.
