    It is in a good position being in close proximity to shops, restaurants and takeaways and a nice stroll through valley gardens down to the beach.The accommodation is dog friendly with a fully enclosed back garden. There are plenty of places/attractions to visit if you want to go further a field. The owner Cassie was very approachable and addressed any minor issues immediately and curiously. I would definitely recommend Driftwood house to friends and family ,and hope to return in the future

  • "Had a lovely stay from 18th to 23rd September."

    The house is perfect for a couple or a family. We had one small dog and one handbag size dog with us and they loved the pretty enclosed garden. Very comfortable beds and bedding. Spotlessly clean home. Everything you need is supplied except a hairdryer which would have been helpful. Marske is a beautiful wee town with friendly people. Would highly recommend Driftwood House for a long or short stay.

    Thank you for your kind feedback - we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do have a hairdryer in the master bedroom in one of the drawers. Many thanks, Cassie Property Owner

  • "Had a Lovely Stay at Driftwood House."

    ..... Area very user friendly with wide well paved paths, Free Toilets and Free Parking. People in the area were very welcoming. The house catered very well for our stay, even to the point of having garden access for my mobility scooter. My wife likes to read Guest book comments so it would have been nice to have one. Otherwise faultless and we would come back to enjoy it again - Cheers Geoff & Sue.

    Hi Geoff and Sue. We are really pleased you had a fabulous stay at Driftwood House. Thank you for your comments. We are new to Sykes so don't yet have a guest book in place, but we can start one - thank you for the suggestion :) Property Owner

The property

Positioned in the coastal village of Marske-by-the-Sea in North Yorkshire is Driftwood House, a fabulous, three-bedroom home.

Within walking distance to a plethora of shops, eateries, and the shoreline, whilst a short drive from the North York Moors National Park, Driftwood House offers a well-equipped abode for a family break to this delightful region.

Benefit from the free public car park before travelling through the enclosed, front garden, reaching the entrance to your new home-from-home.

Unwind and rest in the homely sitting room, complete with plush Chesterfield seating, a TV for entertainment.

Continue into the fully-equipped, sleek kitchen, where you can prepare delicious meals and enjoy as a family, or head outdoors to set the patio table, enveloped by a lovely rear garden.

Catch some rest from one of the three well-appointed bedrooms, including one king, one double and a single, before completing your morning routine in the contemporary bathroom; enjoy either a refreshing shower or an indulgent bath in the free-standing bath, before kickstarting your North Yorkshire itinerary.

Pack up your seaside essentials and head to Saltburn Beach, offering a large golden expanse with a pier and arcade, before picking up a portion of fish and chips and wandering through the village.

There is also a choice of restaurants and pubs if you fancy dining out, plus a post office, butcher, bakery and convenience stores for grabbing the essentials.

Discover the Saltburn funicular lift, an example of fascinating Victorian engineering, making it easy to travel between the pier and the clifftops.

Those looking for further outdoor adventure can take a nature-filled hike through the Huntcliff Nature Reserve, or travel through the national park to reach the bustling town of Whitby, offering plenty of attractions for all types of visitors, including the remains of Whitby Abbey, Whitby Museum, the 199 Steps landmark, and the River Esk, before joining The Cinder Track for countryside vistas.

Make wonderful memories at Driftwood House.
