“I would recommend Driftwood as a pet friendly holiday , great location , very practical for holiday with our two dogs with wooden floors throughout.”
Clean , comfortable ,biscuits , milk and £1 coins a nice touch . Fantastic views , metres from the beach , shops / pub in walking distance, nice quiet chillout.
“Great location well maintained site.”
“We as a family with 4 kids wanted to make a nice holiday week around Lowestoft.”
The place is a really quiet place with a great view on the sea and beach. Unfortunately, there were two points wich were very disappointed for us: The heater in the shower was not working. So with little kids it was always a hard work wash them and not acceptable for such a venue. The second thing was, that there has been a dog in one of the beds before we came, but it wasn’t cleaned. As a summary, except these two things, we really enjoyed our holiday there. But we can only give 6/10 points.
“Overall quality high.”
Seems that everything has been thought of. Milk and biscuits a nice touch as were the pound coins. Loved the enclosed porch for early coffee time. Can't recommend highly enough.
“Bathroom Shower head broken, Pin hole leak in kitchen sink so dripping rusty water onto utensils DVD player didn't work Surfaces not clean sweet and biscuit papers under sofa, Cobwebs and flies in windows Mugs not useable until they had been washed.”
Such a shame because it was a lovely place, tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival also extra bonus of a dog crate ( although we did bring our own) The whole place just needed a spring clean.
“Good comfortable beds.”
Lovely tea and milk welcome tray.However we arrived on a very cold night and it was a nightmare to get into the cottage and it was really cold inside.I will never entertain renting a cottage with an electric meter again.People should be made aware that in the cold of winter you are likely to put 50 pounds of your own money into the meter.we chose this cottage because I had people with disabilities and it was difficult to keep warm with oil fired fires.IT would be great in the summer
“Good property, but beware of additional electricity costs”
The property has lots of pluses. The living accommodation is of a good size and overlooks the communal grounds and beyond this, the sea. The two main bedrooms are also a good size (although no wardrobe in the master bedroom). The bunk bed room is fit for purpose. The property is tastefully decorated and in a good state of repair. The kitchen is well equipped, with plenty of crockery, glasses and cutlery. A good sized freezer is also available. The property was also very clean throughout. In my opinion there are two downsides to the property. The first is the size of the kitchen. It is very compact and very difficult to fit more than one person in it at a time. The second downside is that the property is heated by portable electric oil heaters (and on-the-wall fan heaters in the ensuite and family bathroom). This is stated in the property details, but beware that you could be incurring electricity costs of circa fifty pounds if staying in a cold week. Overall I would recommend this property to friends, but would make them aware of potential additional costs.
“summer holiday with are dog”
cottage was very well presented evey thing you needed lovely veiws out to sea and beach very nice walks along the beach very dog freindly village very nice pubs.
“Excellent! One of our best holidays”
Excellent facility and the interiors are very nicely done up. The view is stunning. We look forward to coming back once again.
“Will go again”
Location excellent. Property very clean. A bit late asking about this as we went in april and have been with yourselves to Yorkshire since then. I suggest if you want a review doing it may be better when you just return home not months after.
“Wonderful location and very comfortable”
House was clean and well kept and of a good size. The location was excellent with lovely views over the North Sea and just a short journey of steps down to the beach. Would highly recommend
The cottage was in a wonderful setting an ideal for taking the family dog out, lots to see and do locally. the cottag ehad veerything we needed. the view was great too.
