Beautiful scenic view from the cottage. Friendly host. Far from everything else and not many eateries around that area. We ended up grilling at the balcony but it was a good alternative countryside experience, waking up to a stunning view! There's a little grocery store around the corner for the grilling ingredients.

The cottages are beautifully positioned with superb views. They are clean and comfortable. Parking is adjacent to the cottage making it easy to take in the luggage. The coffee maker is an added and appreciated bonus. A great place to spend a night or a week.

An excellent unit overlooking the water with very generous facilities. A basket of apples on the table coffee machine and a heated floor in the morning when we woke up!. Lovely big fluffy towels and very helpful staff. The Post Office restaurant in Dover is terrific. Very modern and smart inside and good food.

This is bliss personified. Tides Reach cottage is right on the beach and you can hear and watch the waves rolling gently onto the beach, while sitting in the very comfortable chairs on the veranda. The cottage was immaculately clean and the attention to detail is excellent. My only complaint had nothing to do with the cottage but with the...

Driftwood Cottages 'The Beach House' was a great place to stay. Clean, very comfortable. Awesome views. A complimentary bottle of wine, especially for Valentines, would have topped it off. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would recommend highly.

The cottage was beautiful and the views were amazing from our lounge window as we sat on the balcony watching the water. So peaceful and quiet, the cottage was well equipped with everthing you needed. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The RSL serve lovely meals and the views of the boats in the water were beautiful.

Very neat and tidy, with responsive staff. Wonderful view of the yachts & fishing boats as they peacefully returned home in the late afternoon. All whilst admiring the horizon with a glass of wine. Do not be put off by the road in front as there is very little local traffic to bother you. I look forward to a return...

Stayed in front studio unit because of the gorgous view. Idea for a couple. Bed to one side adjacent to compact ensuite. (Great shower head and water pressure). You could lie in bed and watch the large tv or sit on the 2 seater couch which overlooks the river view. There is a small table and chairs to complement the...
