We are home from a week at The Old Sweet Shop and we found everything we needed for a summer holiday with four children and a dog. What sets this holiday let apart is that it really is dog friendly rather than dog tolerant. A safe, secure garden. A stair gate (no dogs upstairs). Dog treats and a bowl of water. A map with local dog walks. And in case you don’t have a dog, it’s also a tastefully and thoughtfully furnished, family let. We loved the outside seating. The property is deceptively large, and with four teenagers we felt that we weren’t under each other’s feet. Our only criticism is a lack of large cooking pots. We coped admirably in the summer, and the local pub is excellent, but cooking for six was a challenge in that many of the saucepans weren’t big enough for us all. Could we have cooked a Sunday roast? I doubt it. But having said that, we are looking to return. Also, lovely, helpful neighbours who pointed us in the direction of supermarkets etc.
Wow.... What a lovely place. We weekended here before Christmas. Fabulous place for a couple of families, and dogs, and food and bonhomie. The place is so easy, the kitchen is well equipped, the lounge comfy for slouching in front of the TV after a day seal watching, or just trekking on the coast. The bathroom is clean and the shower amazing.... The table comfortably seated eight and the wine flowed. There's no parking but it was easy to find a spot on the road. We will be back!
