The apartment was cosy and comfortable. It was very well equipped and lacked absolutely nothing. Modern bed linen, white clean fluffy towels, even buckets and spades had we needed them. Comfortable furniture, just spot on for our requirements. Bedrooms were very spacious and showers powerful with plenty of hot water.
A black out blind in the front bedroom would have been helpful, as headlights from traffic were very persistent, and traffic was evident from 5 30 am onwards, daylight thankfully wasn't a problem in October. A minor point and didn't spoil our holiday. The position of the property and thoughtful finishing touches more than compensated.

“Perfect for the beach and the kids, amazing see view”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a lovely cosy apartment with great sea views, very well equipped (including kids toy and binoculars galore) and practically on the beach, which is perfect for kids with a little freshwater beck and a place to escape the sea winds. A pleasant 40mins seafront stroll into Whitby along the Cleveland way. would definitely recommend and plan to stay again.

“Perfect place”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was our 3rd visit to Driftwood and we hope there will be many more. It is very comfortable with everything we need and in a perfect position, the children love it.

“Perfect place for a beach holiday”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Excellent. although refurbished to modern spec and immaculately kept this apartment retains a cosy cottage feel. As promised, everything we needed was there on arrival. Only a few steps to the beach, it has lovely views. My teenage grandchildren became children again and enjoyed playing on the beach with the buckets and spades provided but also appreciated the free wifi as did the adults. A VERY good holiday home which we hope to visit again.

“Excellent accommodation and location”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Although we'd seen the very positive reviews about Driftwood on Tripadvisor it exceeded my expectation. The location is perfect, literally a minutes walk from the beach with stunning views from all rooms. There is a private car parking space across from the flat but so too is the bus stop into Whitby which is helpful.
We were a party of 6 ranging from grand parents to a two year old and we stayed in Driftwood for a week.
The flat is very well kitted out. The kitchen has a good array of equipment so no problem cooking meals if you choose to eat in, the bathroom and en suit are modern, ultra clean and there are zillions of towels. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and the beds and bed linen good quality and very comfortable. The lounge is large, and again is equipped with good quality furnishings and comfortable. It has a fantastic panorama window and there are games, colouring books, DVDs, binoculars and all sorts to amuse children and adults alike. The children appreciated the supply of beach toys that are stored in the porch.
On arrival the very nice coffee, tea, fresh milk and pastries that were left for us by Geoff the owner were very welcome and the beautiful fresh Freesias lasted the full week we were there.
We had been slightly concerned when we booked about being outside he main attractions of Whitby but it actually worked out better as we could enjoy the busyness of Whitby during the day and retreat to the quiet of Driftwood and the beach in the evening. Also there are loads of taxis so transport was never an issue.
I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely apartment.
