“Stunning sea views”
The views were stunning... never tired of watching the navel ships, sailing boats etc each day.. chalet very comfortable & cosy with everything you could possibly need during your stay... weather was good also... can't wait to return..
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the great review it is very much appreciated. We look forward to you staying with us again. Kind Regards Terry
Well where do you start.... Amazing chalet decorated to a very high standard and containing everything you would buy yourself. Take a good look at the photo's because they don't exaggerate the beautiful views, no wide angle lens or trick photography used here. There are no words to describe the feeling of waking up, pulling open the curtains and just sitting there staring out of the window and watching the movement of the sea together with the activity of the navy and private yaughts. There are many places of interest around all reasonably priced - book this holiday you will not regret it.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of Driftwood, it is very much appreciated by us. Kind Regards Terry
“Perfect Retreat for Rest & Relaxation”
We first visited before Easter and have just returned from a second week which really tells you all that you need to know. It will definitely not be our last visit this year. The accommodation is clean, the bed comfortable, the area is quiet and peaceful and everything you need for a relaxing break is available. Wonderful views looking out to sea with lots of activity from the Royal Navy to keep you entertained. We really needed rest and relaxation and are now feeling thoroughly refreshed and reenergised upon our return home. There are two patios so that you can follow the sun from sunrise to sunset if you choose. It's great for walkers with excellent walks from outside the front door. We have been to Devon so many times but never realised that there was this little bit of paradise just outside Plymouth! We really did have a wonderful time. The microclimate enjoyed at Bovisands does contribute enormously to the feeling of well being.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a fantastic review it really does mean a lot to us and will be very helpful for those contemplating a visit. We have many guests who regularly return to Driftwood but have never had two visits in the same month !! We will be delighted to have you stay again. Kind Regards Terry
“Absolutely wonderful - could not fault it in any way”
This is a very well equipped holiday home. The décor is beautiful and very tasteful. The kitchen is very modern and well equipped. The location is very good with easy access by boat to Plymouth Barbican. The view is fabulous with ever changing weather conditions and military boat manoeuvres in evidence. Local amenities are excellent. This was a perfect spot and provided a perfect holiday.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the fantastic review - its great to hear that others think that Driftwood is situated in such a perfect spot. We never tire of the views Kind Regards Terry
This was a great resting place with fantastic views across to Cornwall and to watch the royal navy going in and out Plymouth.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for the review, it was good of you to take the time. The position of the Chalet and the means that not much gets into Plymouth without being seen!! I'm glad you had a relaxing break and hope you return in the near future. Kind Regards Terry
