Lovely, well equipped property. Set well back from road so surprisingly quiet. Beautiful rear garden. Also a great, central location for visiting Edinburgh and other attractions in East Lothian. The owner couldn't have been more helpful also. Would definitely stay again and will recommend to friends and family.

As a busy city dweller with fast paced life....I found Driftwood to be the tranquil haven I had been searching for.......the soft colours used throughout the cottage combined with patio doors out into beautiful country garden...gave me the space I needed to relax.....and switch off....
I had thought I would also have to organise bringing lots of things with me but with the co-op, post office, hair dresser, coffee shop and pub at end of road and gorgeous walks on the door step....I found I didn't need to go very far....also the cottage had all mod cons, with TV, internet and everything you could want in kitchen so was a proper home from home.......I ended up most nights reading by the log burning fire and listening to music.....bliss!! Also relaxing in bath with glass of wine was just wonderful!
I also found it very easy to get on to motorway and into Edinburgh when I needed a bit of shopping therapy....so what a great location!!
I would definitely recommend Driftwood for anyone looking to just escape from it all and relax!

We spent a week in Driftwood Cottage at the end of April and absolutely loved it. The cottage is deceptively spacious and has a great mix of cosy corners and open airy living space. We spent most of our time in the back extension which is lovely and light and feels very private. Having 2 bathrooms is a real bonus and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed for self catering and the woodburner in the snug is the best I have ever used! We loved the garden which was full of plants, trees and birds, The cottage is perfectly located just a 5 minute walk from the centre of East Linton which has all the basic amenities you need including a co-op, deli and pharmacy, but as the cottage is set back from the road it is really quiet and peaceful inside. East Linton is a lovely little place and within easy reach of the coast and coastal towns as well as Edinburgh - we took a 30min train in for the day from North Berwick for about £7 return which worked really well.
I would highly recommend Driftwood Cottage to anyone looking to stay in the area, it is great value for the space, location, and quality and Gillian the owner was also really great to deal with.

The Wifi and TV all worked, although I admit I was hiding away so did not use them much. The showers were fabulous, and the kitchen was great for communal cooking (and wine drinking). The booking process, key handover and the support from Gillian at East Coast made everything go so smoothly. No stress, just relaxation ... really what we needed. As you may be able to tell we loved Driftwood and East Linton, I can't recommend it highly enough and will definietly be going back ... and maybe this time bring my golf clubs.
Thanks Driftwood for some truly great memories
