  • "Although the cottage was well equipped some updating is required especially in the bathroom."

    The water from the shower was just a trickle and took to log to heat. The mat in front of shower should be exchanged for a proper shower mat which could easily be dried for the next day. Giving credit the bedding was spotless and beds very comfortable.

  • "We very much enjoyed our short break in this property."

    The house was as described and the location was fantastic. We loved that the beach was a few minutes' walk away - and what a beach!! Our puppy was safe in the enclosed garden at the back of the house and both gardens caught the sun at different times of the day. The house is well equipped and we had plenty of space as a family of four. There are plenty of cafes and takeaways if you choose not to cook and there's a big Tesco within easy walking distance too. This was our first time in Withernsea and I feel sure we'll be back.

  • "The house was lovely the only thing that let it down was the standard of cleaning."

    The kitchen floor still had dog hairs all over it, there were bags of old potatoes in the cupboard but most worrying of all was used soap and shower gel left in the shower cubicle. Having said that the beds and everything else was spotless. It was a real home from home with everything you needed to have a wonderful holiday. Would recommend it.

  • "Nice to get away after the lockdown."

    The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. Nice garden to sit out in but unfortunately the weather didn't allow that whilst we were there. There was a information file which was helpful if you didn't know there area. Overall a pleasant stay in ideal location - sea at the end of the road and the centre about a 10 minute walk.

  • "All was good in the property & all facilities were accurately described ."

    The location is lovely & it was like a home from home even down to the dog friendly feel to it . P.S.The only thing that could have impacted our comfort if it had been much colder was the ‘cold’ radiator in the shower room - if it had been a problem we’d have contacted the owner . It needs sorting for the winter , the radiator thermostat can’t work as the bleed valve is stuck solid ! We did try to fix it but couldn't. There was plenty of everything we may have needed . Lovely place to stay .

    Supermarket five minutes walk away,beach five minutes walk away,town,cafes,take aways eight to ten minutes walk away. Secure garden for the four footed friends with a couple of sun traps to sit in for the alfresco dining. Would we stay again...? Yes please......in fact we've booked again for next year.....

    The beach was really only a 5 minute walk away and the promenade walk into town was an easy daily walk. We found two children’s playgrounds both within walking distance which the boys loved. A great property in an ideal location.

    Just minutes from a dog friendly beach which is excellent when the tide is out with masses of soft sand, but not so accessible at other times. The accommodation met our expectations. We had a lovely relaxing week. Shops close by and a pleasant small town. Would definitely recommend.

  • "A beautiful house in a very good location (major supermarket within 100 yards or so of the entrance to the street) will be fantastic if anyone wants a beach location for the summer (its at the other end of the street!"

    !) 3 very good sized bedrooms on 2 floors (1 downstairs makes it ideal if anyone is slightly less mobile), a wonderfully equipped kitchen and a good sized lounge/dining room complete with super sized sofa (even had electric recliner section) and the most amazing log burner!! (a most welcome addition for chilly winters nights). The tv in the lounge even had Netflix so it really was home from home :-) We truly had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend Driftwood, they even go the extra mile by providing little extras for your 4 legged friends like dishes, towels, poo bags, treats and so on. The games room is a small porch area with a cabinet containing board games, beach games equipment etc and extra equipment for the beach is provided in the shed outside if you need it. I genuinely have nothing negative to say we had a wonderful time. Thankyou for a lovely break, we will definitely return again in the future.

    Loads of space pity there wasn't a dishwasher or dryer ( we had good weather so no problem) Very close to seafront so lovely for dog walking, the town itself was not what we expected loads of takeaways & cheap rooms to rent over pubs! There is a small micro pub which was ok & a marston pub 'The Spread Eagle' which was a bit drab but food was good.
