This magnificent Sea Garden cottage is a stone’s throw from Old Grimsby’s idyllic shoreline. Also on its doorstep are tennis courts, an indoor pool, Jacuzzi and sauna.

The Cottage

This beachy escape has marine-themed hints throughout, from shelves of sea treasures in the master bedroom, dinner plates adorned with painted lobsters and mackerel, and graduated shades of blue across fabrics, furnishings and the exposed beams in the open plan lounge and dining space. Featuring three double or twin bedrooms, plus a separate TV room with sofabed, Driftwood is an ideal base for a family escape.


The Location

The cottage is set amongst an array of colourful blooms in our Sea Gardens, at Old Grimsby. Stroll across the lawn to Tresco’s iconic crab seats and spend a tranquil afternoon watching the waters of Old Grimsby harbour. A sunny lunch on the Ruin Beach Café terrace is a must – the seafood sharing platter is exquisite!

I looked across a neat lawn bordered by pink flowers to a swaying sea. Waves fizzled softly on boulders in the cove.
