We have had a brilliant 2 weeks at Driftwood and can’t wait to book and return again ! Tracey and Tom where very welcoming and the welcome pack was great after a long drive from Yorkshire . The beach is so close to the accommodation we could set off for the day come back and still have a couple of hours on the beach.
