Driftwood is a well-presented Victorian cottage with a private sunny rear courtyard, situated in a quiet side street a short stroll from the centre of Braunton. Sleeping four people, this double-fronted cottage has a separate lounge, dining room and kitchen and an allocated parking space just 100 yards away. The cosy living room, at the front of the house, has high quality leather settees positioned around the feature fireplace with a “real flame” gas fire for cooler evenings. The beautifully decorated dining room has a lovely dining table in the centre – perfect for evening meals in, whilst the good-sized kitchen is extremely well-equipped and overlooks the private rear courtyard. Upstairs, both of the bedrooms have original wooden floors and Victorian feature fireplaces and there is a spacious family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle. Outside, Driftwood benefits from a fully enclosed rear courtyard which catches the sun for most of the day and has outside furniture and a barbecue. There is also a useful, secure outbuilding which has plenty of space for surfboards, bikes, pushchairs and other leisure equipment. Just a couple of minutes from Driftwood’s front door are the many restaurants, cafés, pubs and shops that Braunton has to offer. The Museum of British Surfing is an attraction that is well worth visiting, packed with little surfing treasures past and present (only a small admission fee is required). The South West Coast Path passes through the village and the Tarka Trail (popular with walkers and cyclists) is easily accessible with bike hire available close by. Just a few minutes by car brings you to a championship golf course or stunning surfing beaches of Saunton and Croyde.

Excellent, well-equipped and clean property.Mr R Blackwell - 9th January 2019
Very clean Excellent provision of kitchen items to bikes etc. Really comfortable place to stay. Highly recommendedPete Valentine - 31st October 2018
This property is beautifully furnished providing a lovely warm cosy feel. The outside area was a real sun trap and all beautifully clean etc. Everything about the place was really good quality and we loved it. The little touch of wine etc on arrival was very much appreciated thank you. If we were being extremely picky it would be nice to have some soft lighting in the kitchen (under the cupboard) and the knives were a bit blunt...... but thats just being picky because it was perfect. Thank you very much, we may very well be back!Mrs Louise Hurlow - 3rd October 2018
Lovely cottage tastefully decorated.Mrs Catherine Woodley - 29th November 2017

Lovely cottage.Mrs Diana Emerson - 16th October 2017
We were very pleased with our holiday at Driftwood. The cottage is very well equipped and is like home from home, with a lovely kitchen, wifi and comfortable beds. It is centrally located in Braunton so you can pop out to the shops or walk to a restaurant for dinner. Plus it's just 15 minutes to our favourite beaches!Mrs Heather Vandamme - 21st August 2017
We loved staying at Driftwood; it was a home away from home! The location was excellent and in easy reach of many amenities and tourist attractions. We are considering re-booking next summer.Mrs Kim Mountford - 7th August 2017
Really lovely house!Miss K Lowles - 21st April 2017

Driftwood is a very comfortable cottage, spotless, well equipped as all Marsdens properties are. We have stayed at several and all are the same high standard.Mrs Arlene Collins - 29th April 2016
