Driftwood Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
This cosy semi detached cottage is in the village of Milford on Sea in Hampshire, and would be an ideal base for anyone looking to enjoy a seaside holiday or a country break. The rooms have all been decorated and equipped to a high standard, and the three bedrooms - a double, a twin and a single - are attractive and comfortable. There is an electric fire in the sitting room, and a lovely sun room, meaning this cottage is a wonderful retreat in both the summer and winter months. The village has a long beach with colourful huts and views towards the Isle of Wight, the New Forest park, ponies, walks and cycle trails are a short drive, while a ferry to the Isle of Wight itself makes a great day out.

A perfect spot for enjoying both a countryside and coastal holiday, the Hampshire village of Milford on Sea has a long, attractive beach with views as far as the Isle of Wight and The Needles, yet is only a short drive to the wonderful walking and cycling of the New Forest National Park. Take in the views over the Solent from the cliff top, or stroll the sea wall from Keyhaven. The village has its own Pleasure Grounds, comprising 14 acres of woodland footpaths along the Danes Stream. You may even wish to hop on a ferry over to the Isle of Wight itself.

Hampshire offers a wealth of treasures, from rolling countryside, unspoilt beaches, glorious gardens and pretty villages to ancient forests, bustling market towns, historic ships and imposing castles.

There is a large garden with lots of garden furniture. The locality is good, the sea being only a short walk away. There are also some good restaurants and cafes in the area.

Driftwood is a really lovely cottage in a great location. The local village has some great pubs and a really nice restaurant. The village has a real community feel to it and people were very friendly. We were very impressed with the exceptionally high standard of the accommodation, it is one of the best cottages I have ever rented! I would recommend it highly.

Our 3rd visit to this charming cottage, it is a real home from home. Really unique with it's seaside theme throughout. Immaculately clean on arrival and a very pretty safe enclosed garden for children. Excellent location for sandy beaches and exploring the New Forest. We are already planning our next visit.
Mrs Hannington
July 2013
Driftwood is in a picturesque and quiet street, just a short walk to both seafront and town. The property is very private, set within a lovely large garden which had ample space for children, parents and grandparents to amuse themselves. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the property was wonderful.
Mrs Porcel

All in all a well equipped cottage with character. A very pleasant stay.

A very pleasant garden with many birds ideal for afternoon tea on a nice day. In easy reach of many attractions and the New Forest.
Mrs Evans
March 2013
Comfortable, cosy cottage only 2 minutes from the sea and about 10 minutes from Milford village with its shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. The layout of the cottage was ideal with plenty of room, no stairs or steps(ideal for my grandchildren) and all the comforts of home. The central heating was excellent and soon got the cottage warm and toasty even though the weather was so cold while I was there.
Mrs Whiting
July 2012
A lovely location - perfect for a family with bikes etc.
Mr Lay-Flurrie
July 2012
The cottage is very private with a lovely suntrap garden, but despite this you are literally 5 minutes from the seafront and about 15 minutes walk from the town centre with all it's amenities. It was our second visit to this holiday home and it was particularly useful for our visit to Southampton to attend our son's graduation. We were also extremely lucky to enjoy good weather from start to finish.
Mrs Heaton

A lovely cottage, close to the sea and near to the town. A warm welcome for our Christmas holiday with decorations and delicious goodies.
Mrs Alderman
September 2011
We really loved the fact that the property had a theme throughout. It made you feel like you were at the seaside. We also enjoyed being so close to the sea, just a few minutes walk away. The property had everything you needed. It was light, clean and comfortable. It was nice to have a decent double bed mattress too!
Mrs Palmer

Miss Gellert

We had a wonderful holiday. We liked the area, the town and the short way to the ocean. Driftwood was beautiful and good for relaxing. The owner brought the ocean in the house, with a great collection from the strand.
Mrs Baldry
May 2011
Really well provisioned cottage - lots of extras and a great kitchen. Lovely garden and really great feel throughout. Very accessible for the children and a proper home away from home. The owner was really great when we couldn't find the back door keys and sorted it out immediately. Felt very welcome.
Miss May
April 2011
The cottage had a great atmosphere and contained everything we required. It was very clean and the furnishings were attractive. The location was lovely and the whole experience from booking the cottage to gaining entry was hassle free. We would definitely return.
Mrs Batterham

Ideal location, interesting area. Local amenities were within walking distance. We appreciated the off-road parking. Property was well laid out and good quality mattress on the double bed. Appreciated extra heating facilities as we stayed during an exceptionally cold period. Welcome pack very good.
Mrs Beer
June 2010
Beautiful property decorated with a nautical theme. Enclosed garden safe for children. Excellent village within 5 mins walk. Good food at Smugglers Inn and Red Lion. Close to the sea with magnificent views of Isle of Wight and The Needles.
Mr Lay-Flurrie
July 2010
The property is well situated for the coast and the village, but is in a quiet area and has a private garden. The property and it's furnishings conveyed a relaxed atmosphere and it was particularly lovely to go somewhere where every last teaspoon, etc, had not been itemised on the inventory.
Mrs Evans
August 2010
Proximity to so many places of interest. Milford is a pretty place and sea front excellent with fabulous views. Driftwood is a place I would stay at again when visiting that part of the country. It was quiet and garden great for the kids. Fab pubs about to eat at and local shops well stocked. People so friendly.
Mrs Sharp
August 2010
The location of the cottage; it was in a quiet residential area but very close to the sea. The cottage itself was lovely - particularly the themed decor.
Mrs Hartwright
August 2010
The bungalow was light, clean and the beds were very comfortable with nice bedding. It was clean without the need for scented products. Will most definitely be booking to stay in Driftwood again.

Mr Chapman

Loved the nautical touches around the house topical and tasteful. In the evening the lighting made the lounge a lovely ambient room. House was in a great position. It was warm and cosy and we would definitely use again.
December 2016
We booked here for Christmas with our daughter and two grandchildren. What an extremely well equipped property, most of the things we brought with us we left in the car. Driftwood is spacious, even with 5 of us it never felt over crowded. It was clean tidy and warm when we arrived, it had even been decorated for Christmas. There is everything you could possibly want in the cottage, the owners have put a lot of love, care and attention into the property so that those that rent it can feel at home, the bonus is having a driveway to park on. The area is quiet, our granddaughter was very excited every time a horse went past the window. The location is brilliant with the beach a short walk away, which we enjoyed on Christmas day, the New Forrest is only a short drive away.It really was home from home for us for Christmas, we had a very restful break, you feel cocooned away from the outside world staying here and you can't help but relax and unwind.
May 2014
This is a lovely clean property which offers a great location with the cliffs and beach only a few minutes walk. Rooms are a nice size except the third beroom which is part of the lounge, being seperated by a glass wall and curtains. Would be happier as a holidaymaker with a maximum of 4 guests, but you can sleep 6 if you are happy to use the third bed arrangement. Only negative to the property is not shown in the details, in that it has no front garden, being built on the road, and hence privacy in the bedrooms can only be achieved behind closed curtains. We were unlucky in that for three days of our stay the hospital on the other side of the road had extensive tree surgery being undetaken, and the noise was extensive.

We booked this cottage for ourselves and our four children for Christmas and everything was just perfect. Upon arrival, we noticed that the cottage had even been decorated for Christmas! The cottage was spotlessly clean, but homely, and very very comfortable and relaxing. It was fully equipped with everything we could possibly have needed, from toilet roll to gravy boat! All six of us were very comfortably accomodated; the bedrooms were of good size, and the beds were all proper- no put you ups. The cliffs and the beach were just a short walk away and the cottage was just a short drive from the supermarket. We booked this cottage for a relaxing family Christmas, which was exactly what we got and more. I highly recommend this holiday! many thanks

January 2014
Really easy place to spend a week at a good price, could walk to the sea, village or countryside. had friends for the day , able to cater for 6, plenty of kitchen equipment. Beds very comfortable, garden lovely and secluded. We really relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. Would have gone back for a trip in May but it was already booked! One or two issues with potential hazards - step up from seating area, real trip hazard. On arrival into parking space a low energy sensor light would have helped.
December 2012
Excellent accommodation,Driftwood was a well kept and cosy cottage with every thing one could want for a enjoyable holiday in a lovely area.
February 2011
A most thoughtfully equipt, comfortable and welcoming holiday home. This accommodation provided everything we could wish for during our stay, and the bonus was to be just a short walk from the beach and the local town.
September 2012
Had a good service from sykes cottages.Everything went smoothly.The home was very pleasant clean and nicely decorated Had everything one needed for a lovely holiday. The location was good being a short walk from Milford on sea and only a few miles from places like Bournemouth and Poole. l liked how near it was to the Isle of White as it was only a very short ferry ride from there lovely.

we had some hic ups with the loo but on the whole we had a nice time
September 2010
Travelled with my daughter and grandchildren.. We had the most wonderful time in the area, there is so much to visit or in our case revisit after several years going elswhere. The bungalow was spotless in an ideal position for visiting New Forest and the south coast.. The layout inside the bungalow is ideal for a family. and the secluded garden excellent if you have small children as they can come to no harm.
