“Outstanding”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Excellent self catering accommodation, one of the best stayed in, immaculately clean and very well equipt to a high standard. Large picture window looking out over harbour was better than watching the TV. Spent some time looking up the big ships on the Navy website as we spotted them in and out through the binoculars. Coastal footpath runs in front of chalet, we walked both ways - towards Plymouth there's a water taxi at Mountbatten Point into Plymouth (Barbican area) £1.50 each way with free parking there too so saves driving into city. Walking other way towards Wembury - some stunning beaches if you time it right with tide out, rock pools etc. Cafe on site was excellent too, literally few yards from chalet shame wasn't open later in day but guess little out of season so shut mid afternoon but had cooked breakfast there after vacated chalet 10am on last day and lovely plus their homemade fish pie one other day again superb. Would definitely go back to No.7 Driftwood. Only drawback for some people could be there are a few steps up to chalet, but well worth it, someone else commented on no washing machine - who wants to do washing on holiday anyway - definitely not me!

Many thanks for the great review your observations will be very useful for other visitors. In addition to the water taxi (which is quite a long walk from the chalet) there is a regular bus (approx every hour) to Plymouth which can be caught a few hundred metres from the chalet.
We would be very pleased to see you another time.
Kind Regards
Terry

“Perfect place for two”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This chalet has been totally modernised which makes it most comfortable. Beautiful dsea views. SW facing to sea so great for sunny evening sea watchging. Great walks in both directions from the property. Once evening draws in its both warm and cosy with a comfy bed

“Delightful Chalet”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Well appointed Chalet with beautiful views of Plymouth Sound. The Chalet feels brand new with a great galley kitchen, comfortable lounge/dining area and new en-suite shower room. Every thing we expected and more, with superb views.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 23 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Do not be misled by any preconceptions the stay at this place will be amazing. Everything from the lovely drive in to the amazing vista as you approach the property, helps you to start off your stay in awe. The property itself was very homely with everything you could need and Terry was very helpful and also unobtrusive. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice relaxing stay in a beautiful part of the country.
