“Fabulous Family Friendly Property”
Reviewed March 29, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed for 5 nights in March and were able cram a lot in. Driftwood is perfect for a family stay in Rochester.

The complimentary starter pack made life easy as we had forgotten to milk and bread on the way. The house is modern clean and tidy with masses of storage for clothes etc.

We were able to store the bikes in the garage and used them on a couple of our trips into the surrounding countryside.

It helped having all the amenities at hand, gas hob, fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer and thank goodness the dishwasher, although we ate out quite a bit.

Rochester has some very nice ‘family’ restaurants. We spent a day in London and couldn’t believe how easy it was taking the fast train into St Pancras, visiting Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament the London Eye (bit cloudy on the day) and then shopping in Oxford Street, we were whacked, but it was great coming back to a warm home and the comfort of the house – a hot shower and we all slept well that night.

This is home from home and we’d highly recommend this lovely house. With its views over the river to anyone who wants real value for money and memories to treasure. Thank you Janet & John
