  • "This was our second stay at 2 Driftwood."

    The apartment is really comfortable, warm and clean. As we stayed for 2 weeks, we would liked to have had another tea towel available (we didn’t bother to use the dishwasher for the 2 of us), also hand towels for use in the bathrooms would be helpful. It would be great if there was a smart TV, just to make the stay even more enjoyable.

  • "Very clean, lots of info, books to read, games to play toys etc."

    Welcome bag very nice touch, Fudge (mmm) Biscuits Tea Coffee, and milk. Very well equiped, with extras that you wouldn't expect, washing up liquid, spray, soap. Excellent location, swimming pool opposite, plenty of places to eat. Would definately go again. Only thing that lets it down is the view but as you are so close to beach you can walk the fudge off to see it. :-))

    Dear Guest, We very much appreciate your positive feedback and are so pleased that you enjoyed staying at 2 Driftwood and that you liked the facilities on offer. 2 Driftwood has a great location being so close to the harbour and beach - with a wide selection of eateries nearby too. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely spacious and clean apartment which is perfectly located for walking the Southwest Coastal path."

    The kitchen is really well equipped, bed very comfortable and the welcome pack was amazing. The only negative is that the view on one side is several blocks of flats and on the other side the caravan park.

    Dear Guest, It's lovely to hear that you found 2 Driftwood comfortable, well equipped, and clean. It's in a great location as it is so close to the beach, harbour, and all amenities. (We hope the immediate views did not impede too much your enjoyment of the apartment and area.) Property Owner

  • "This was our second stay and we like the location and the facilities in the apartment."

    Unfortunately I suffer from arthritis now and we had some problems getting the luggage up the stairs will probably look for a place with a lift next time. Since there were three of us and we weren't together all the time a second set of keys would have been useful. Also the duvets were winter weight so we couldn't use them as it was hot during our stay. Appreciated the welcome pack though and overall had a good week.

    Dear Guests, We are very pleased that you have stayed with us before- our apartment is in a great location and we are glad that you like our facilities. Lymebay Holidays are on call throughout the stay of our guests and are happy to try to accommodate any requests (such as keys/duvets) or any queries, in order to make your stay the best possible. Thank you for revisiting. Property Owner

  • "The apartment is in a wonderful central location in West Bay."

    All facilities and equipment at the property were of high quality. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds and living room area. Only thing to suggest would be provision of an apron in the kitchen.

    Thank you so much for your positive and encouraging comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at 2 Driftwood and that you found the apartment very comfortable and meeting high standards in cleanliness and quality. Property Owner

  • "2 Driftwood is a lovely, well-appointed apartment which is excellent for a relaxing stay."

    The compromise of a lack of sea-view is no hardship as the location is very convenient for all the amenities & walks. Lyme Bay Holidays provided an excellent service for any requirements we had. Our only disappointment is that we couldn't spend another week there.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at 2 Driftwood. The location is a great spot, minutes away for the harbour and sea front. We hope you can return for another visit in the future. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was very clean and tidy."

    We liked the layout very much. The welcome pack was a very nice touch. A couple of minor points: 1. Clearer instructions as to the location of the meter box. 2. A shelf in the shower cubicle would be handy.

    Thank you for your thoughtful feedback. 2 Driftwood is a great holiday apartment as it is so close to the harbour and beach. Glad you enjoy the yummy welcome pack too! We noted your points and have inserted a shower shelf in the cubicle. We've also have asked Lymebay Holidays to check the instructions for the key access. Property Owner

    But this would not put us off booking the same apartment again. Also hard to find the meter cupboard for the key, you should tell people it is floor level , found it eventually after calling the office. Apart from this we had a great stay perfect location. Thank you

About the location


Bridport 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 11 miles

West Bay, fondly known as “The Gateway to the Dorset Jurassic Coast” and popularised by the TV series Broadchurch, lies close to the glorious sandstone cliffs of Golden Cap, at the western end of the dramatic pebbly Chesil Beach. This is a wonderful seaside location, perfect for family holidays, offering scenic walks along the South West Coast Path, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, crabbing, boating and golf. Visit the homes of Thomas Hardy and TE Lawrence, the Tank Museum at Bovington or the Naval air Museum at Yeovil. Only 1.5 miles away is the vibrant market town of Bridport, featured in the TV series, River Cottage. The area holds plenty of attractions to suit the whole family! Just a short drive West takes you to Charmouth for fossil hunting, to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, and to River Cottage HQ near Axminster. To the East are the lovely Sub-tropical Gardens and Swannery at Abbotsbury, and the golden sands of Weymouth. This wonderful location makes an ideal base for a great family holiday.
