Driftwood Beach House


Driftwood Beach House is a uniquely designed boutique bed and breakfast in Whitstable, Kent. It is the perfect alternative to hotels in Whitstable, offering peace, privacy, and luxury, in a picturesque setting.

Owned and operated by friendly couple Jez and Michelle Hills, Driftwood Beach House is a testament to their love of travel and passion for hospitality. Each room offers its own distinct vibe, whether it’s the soothing Moroccan room, the Hot Tub Heaven room, or the light and airy Chess Room, with its own giant chess set on the terrace.

What sets Driftwood Beach House apart from other B&Bs is the personal experience offered by the owners, who are more than happy to take guests out and about and show them the local must-see attractions and restaurants, or simply leave the guests to their own privacy.

Out and about you’ll find Seasalter Beach with breathtaking views of the bay, across Seasalter Marshes and the surrounding countryside. Just a few miles along the coast is popular Whitstable town, famed for its oysters, art galleries and trendy social scene.

Driftwood Beach House is just short drive from Whitstable, Kent. Here you can enjoy many of the unique shops and restaurants in Whitstable . It is also home to many popular events throughout the year, including the famous Whitstable Oyster Festival.
