    Our stay was brilliant she left neccesary items for us ie toilet rolls cleaning, tea bags and coffee and a lovely bottle of Rose wine, the house was perfect for our 3 dogs.

    A clean, comfortable accommodation. The location worked well for us. One minor niggle, the patio slabs were loose, in places, and they all needed repointing. Otherwise, very pleased.

    This property would benefit from a new mattress in the double bedroom

    We had a good stay here. A generous welcome pack including tea,coffee milk very much appreciated. Good sized bedrooms plenty of space for clothes and cases. Nice back garden and garden furniture. Plenty of crockery and utensils in kitchen and lovely to have a dishwasher. As others have said the drive is a bit tight but we managed to get our car on there( not a small car).we took towels and bedding but needn’t have, there was a generous supply of both. The shower was lovely, a good powerful one. The owner had a good info folder, great if you don’t know the area(fortunately we did). Family of 4( no pets).

    Sparrows Nest is a comfortable house with a lovely garden which is secure for even the smallest dog.

    We enjoyed our stay here, we felt comfortable, everything we expected it to be but don't think it's suitable for non dog owners. Great location with friendly staff in local pubs and shops. Lovely dog walk to the beach

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments on Sparrow's Nest, glad you enjoyed your stay. Our cottage season has just begun but I would just like to point out having checked my figures for last year which was a busy season, 24% of my guests had no pets and all of these parties had a good holiday. To minimise any animal odour apart from thorough cleaning between each party the carpets are all shampooed at the start of each season and air fresheners are deployed and changed regularly throughout the holiday season.
