  • "Wow wow wow."

    What a beautiful place with a beautiful story. The characteristics of this home are incredible. The place just oozes love. Spotlessly clean and has everything and I mean everything you need. On our next visit we will be travelling a lot lighter. The owners are so so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be booking again. Thanks you so much to Joy & Norm for sharing this with us <3 Note to Sykes... Please get someone in to take new photos of this home. Yours currently do it no justice whatsoever. It is so much more beautiful ;-)

  • "We were met by Joy who explained how to operate the hot tub and to give us a guided tour of her spotlessly clean and cosy bungalow."

    She really has thought of everything to make holidays here as comfortable as possible! The location is perfect for the beach and town centre and the country park is an easy 20 minute stroll away. We will definitely return to Dunlin in the future !

  • "Accommodation felt like home."

    Very well equipped. My brother in law has had recent knee replacement and the hot tub was ideal for him to do his post op knee exercises as helped him to relax, particularly as he was unable to walk far. Lovely welcome and the owners are keen bird watchers as are we and had very good knowledge of the area where to see the most and what was about at present. Also told us about nearby places to visit which were dog friendly e.g Wells Cathedral which was a lovely day out. Local cafes were dog friendly but not the pubs/resturants, so we had to travel out of Burnham to find Sunday carvery for example and opted for takeaways a couple of times. No a problem as very comfortable chalet bungalow to spend our evenings in. Lovely walks on the beach in the autumn sunshine plus lovely sunsets over the water. Sadly, the town itself is a little run down but a reflection on economic times for any coastal community and not the local people themselves who are very polite and friendly. Recommend Mays Cafe for a lovely breakfast before setting off home (or anytime during your stay!).

    The decor was lovely and was equipped every thing that we could possibly need for ourselves and our dog (treats, bowls and throws) Joy and Norm, who own the property, really made us welcome and made sure we understood the lovely hot tub. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay ( and our dog did too), and would recommend Dunlin to everyone. Plus the weather was marvellous too. Thank you Joy and Norm!!!

  • "The property is extremely nice and very very clean and well looked after with a small back garden and a front garden as well!"

    ! It also has a hot tub at the back. The house is well situated and is only a 5 minute walk to the small town centre of Burnham On Sea and the area is very quiet at any time of the day and we felt very safe there. The host Joy is a lovely person who greeted us with a cheery smile and chat about the property and offered us tips on where to eat and place to visit, Her tips for The Brit Chips was spot on as it was lovely!! And the local Chinese restaurant was very nice too. We really enjoyed our stay there and wouldn't hesitate to book again (If they would have us!) We also took our little dog who loved the area and it is quiet dog friendly too and offers nice walks, Oh yeah there was also a cupboard just for dogs with treats and toys and also a dog bowl of water outside the front door. Also, there is a very good bus service from outside the B&M store to places like Weston Super mare, Bridgewater & Taunton. I highly recommend you book your holiday here, you won't regret it!!

    As a nurse I’ve been working frontline since March and Dunlin was the perfect place to relax. Loved exploring the local area and coming back to the hot tub in the evening. The whole family loved it and we will definitely plan to return

  • "Great holiday cottage, very comfortable and well equipped."

    Joy and Norm were great hosts - there to welcome us and also available for any queries and gave lots of good advice on places to go. The cottage is very well placed for the centre of Burnham, but on a very quiet road. It was easy to walk into town to get some shopping - there is a greengrocer, bakers, fishmonger, butcher all within easy reach, and Lidl is only a short walk. There are lots of walks in the area, and its very easy to walk straight from the cottage along the coast both north and south. We had a few trips to Avalon Marshes to see the starling murmurations, thanks to Joy for advising us to avoid the weekends as it gets very busy and the roads can get almost impassable. There are lots of places to visit within under an hour, and if you are interested in wildlife, especially birds, then it is wonderful. Whenever we were in the cottage, we were fascinated by the sparrows using the bird feeder just outside the lounge window. The beach is only a few minutes walk and changes all the time depending on the tides, so you never get bored of the same walks.

The welcome pack included milk,wine,chocolates, flowers and copies of Joy's own music CD and photo-calendar ! The WiFi broadband was fast and effective throughout the property. We only used the downstairs bedroom but the upstairs bedroom looked equally spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed using the hot-tub on a cold grey day and watching the activity on the bird feeders in the private garden. Co-owner Norm maintains and treats the hot-tub after use. The owners are truly dog friendly too and bought their cute dog Dennis to meet and play with our dog. The property is only a short walk from the shops, beach and pubs. Burnham-on-Sea has plenty of dog walks to choose from and Somerset attractions to visit. We would definitely recommend Dunlin to others even at the risk of not being able to re-book it ourselves !

A delightful semi-detached chalet bungalow situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, a few minutes’ walk from the beach, in the Somerset seaside town of Burnham-on-Sea.

This lovely holiday home is an ideal base for couples, families and friends to enjoy the area with many activities and attractions close by.

This is also a perfect retreat for birdwatchers, dog walkers and nature lovers with a river estuary walk and park minutes from the house, and Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve and the Avalon marshes on the Somerset Levels close by.

Tastefully furnished, you enter into this wonderful cottage via a front porch then to a small hallway.

From here you will find a well-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare a tasty picnic to take to the beach, and after a day exploring the area you can come back and relax in front of the gas fire in the sitting room with a warm drink in hand.

Also on the ground floor is a bathroom, along with the dining room and a king-size bedroom, both of which overlook the pretty back garden.

Tucked away on the first floor is a beautiful double bedroom with a basin.

The private garden is a pleasant place to sit out on a sunny day with small lawns, flower borders and is home to plenty of birds.

Also outside and a bonus to staying at this superb cottage is a two-seater hot tub, so why not rest those achy legs after a long walk on the moors?
