Please note that this establishment is no longer operating, as John and Kate are retiring. Please be aware that they thanked all of their customers for their custom and that they are downsizing and that the house was going on the market as of April 2016.

We booked a stay at Driftwood Lodge last minute over the phone, and John and Kate were very accommodating. Both are very friendly and knowledgable, while the B&B itself is comfortable with a great breakfast. John and Kate even went the extra mile after some jewellery was left behind, and called us up to sort it out almost as soon... More

John and Kate Brown go out of their way to make visitors feel comfortable and the homely rooms have been thoughtfully kitted out with everything from shaving balm to chocolates. Beds were comfortable so we both had good nights' sleep, and... More
