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!!

Fantastic welcome from Joy and accommodation and facilities were amazing.. 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.

We were met by Jo the owner she was so amazing making us feel welcome and explaining where things were . She had put fresh flowers in the property with chocolates and a bottle of wine not forgetting the tin of food for Molly our dog and treats. What a fantastic break by walking and exploring the area followed by a relaxing rest in the hot tub. Anyone wanting a great place to stay in Somerset this is the place. Thanks to Jo and Norm keep up the good work . Hope to see you soon Rob Maxine and Molly

What can I say apart from WOW! What a beautiful place with the kindest, most welcoming host! We had a weekend away and I really wish we had booked a week! Warm welcome and great info given about all the things we could do! Milo the puppy loved his stay and I don’t think wanted to go home! We will defiantly be coming back!

The location of Dunlin was just perfect! We had glorious weather & walked our 2 dogs on the beach every day, alternatively Apex park, with lakes, woodland and the estuary is only a 10 - 15 minute walk! Dunlin is like home from home, so well equipped and comfortable, our hosts Joy & Norm went out of their way way to make sure we had everything we needed and are a mind of information on the local area. Would love to return some time soon, once our 2 very tired pooches have recovered!
Mrs Aldridge, September 2019
August 2019
Wow what a fabulous welcome from Joy the owner.. The accommodation was just perfect. It had everything we needed and was so relaxing. Apex Park is only a short walk away and was absolutely beautiful with all the wild flowers. The sea front and beach was a few minutes away as was the town with all its local produce. The hot tub was a bonus too. Joy and Norm are wonderful hosts, so friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. It was also very dog friendly. We will most definitely be returning and I can’t wait!!
Mrs Herridge, August 2019

The house was lovely with beautiful gardens and the hot tub is just what you need after a day out.. So near to lots of places of interest such as Cheddar gorge and Wells. Joy is, as her name suggests, 'a joy' as a host! A wonderful holiday right near to the Burnham-on-sea beach front and close to local amenities. 10/10.
Ms Wilde, August 2019

The hospitality of Joy and her husband was incredible.. Welcomed us and showed round everything, provided welcome wine and chocolates also tea coffee milk.

A great welcome from the owners Joy&Norm.. Everything we needed was provided.Appreciated being near to all facilities & yet positioned in a quiet cul-de - sac.The hot tub was an added bonus.We will definitely return in the future.
Mr Mackie

The chalet bungalow was the most comfortable and well equipped dog friendly holiday home that we have ever had.. We were met by owner Joy who gave us a great welcome and explained how to work the appliances, central heating and hot-tub. Quality towels and bedding are provided. 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 !

This holiday cottage was such a lovely treat, we went over Christmas and it was decorated so beautifully for us.. The hot tub is very well looked after, the cottage was fully stocked when we arrived so no need to rush straight out again to grab basics after the journey there. Burnham-on-Sea is a Lovely seaside town and as we were there in the winter it wasn’t at all busy. Lots of lovely places to visit and plenty of choice when it comes to dining out. We had the best family Christmas ever. Would highly recommend this property, we would love to go back and stay for longer. Thank you so much to the couple who own and look after this holiday cottage, you have set a very high standard for holiday homes.

We have stayed in many Sykes cottages and Dunlin is outstandingly the best.. So many extras provided for your comfort, spotlessly clean, lovely welcome and superb location. It really is as nice as it sounds!

Dublin, the bungalow we rented, was really cosy and in an ideal location for visiting the Somerset area.. The welcome from the owner was excellent and she had thought of everything that we needed to make us feel at home there. We would recommend the bungalow to anyone wanting to stay in the area!

Mrs Taylor

We received a warm welcome from Joy and were delighted at first seeing this lovely holiday home.. It was extremely well presented with all modern appliances etc. It was also situated in an ideal position with only a few minutes walk to the esplanade, shops (and church!) and also a quite location with secure off road parking. We thoroughly enjoyed our too brief a week's holiday and will certainly be booking again in the future. Jane & Peter Taylor, Staffordshire

Lovely holiday home.. Had a cosy feel to it, garden and Hot tub were private. All the facilities you should need and more. 5 minutes walk to the beach and a great location to explore Somerset.
Mr Burford
December 2017
The owners were exceptionally friendly & helpful - knowledgable & enthusiastic about the local area.. I don’t know why but The photographs of the property don’t do it justice. The owners, Joy and Norm, obviously love and care for their property: maintaining the house & garden and feeding the wildlife as though they live there themselves.

Dunlin is a lovely holiday home.. There is nothing the owners haven't thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The location is ideal for the town and beach, yet quiet and peaceful. It is ideally placed for days out to numerous wonderful locations. The house itself is immaculate. Being 'dog friendly' made it perfect for us. After lots of walking the hot tub was just the thing to soothe aching legs. We would definitely recommend Dunlin.
Mrs Ephgrave, March 2017
February 2017
This bungalow is perfect although so close to lots of amenities it is so quiet and relaxing .. The hot tub was an added bonus and we really felt welcomed to the property by the lovely owners joy and Norm. Our dog was not only welcomed but accommodated with a bowl of fresh water and treats in the cupboard for him too and the use of additional dog towels and bedding . It is lovely to see that the owners have not been greedy and have kept the dinning room instead of converting it into a third bedroom allowing us to sit together as a family to eat meals and play cards . The art work and photographs in the walls are all produced by the owners . The attention to detail in this bungalow make it more than a holiday rental but a cherished and well loved home . There is nothing you could want that isn't there . We will certainly be back
Mrs Holder, February 2017

We all felt so welcome from the minute we met Joy.. We were completely made to feel at home and the little extras made it even more special. The house was absolutely beautiful and had everything you needed for a break away. Perfect location to the town centre, beach, pubs and restaurants. We would highly recommend it at Dunlin. A million stars!
Miss Morgan, December 2016
December 2016
The cottage location is great for the town which includes some good pubs and really good restaurants.. The Italian 5 minutes away is one of the best we've been to., and the Chinese won't disappoint. The cottage is well equipped including those items you always forget when going away. Walks on the beach or a full circle through the park and along the sea front is great for the dogs. The place is more spacious than you see in the photographs
Mr Sealey, December 2016

Excellent holiday cottage.. received a warm welcome. accommodation had everything we could need. Burnham on sea is a lovely resort and perfect for dog walkers. will certainly book another holiday here. Margaret hanson

Having stayed in a lot of very good dog friendly cottages, Dunlin gets the fifth star on account of its location. An early morning walk on the empty beach (3minutes from the door), further walks on bigger beaches easily reached, plenty of designated bins, a park 10 minutes away for the last walk of the day. Plenty of countryside walks a short drive inland or along the coast. A small but secure garden . Inside the cottage, the owners have decorated and furnished to a high standard and make themselves available to meet ,greet and show you how the hot tub works...what a great asset to have. Their passion for wildlife is summed up by the bird feeders which attract a lot of visitors. Two large double bedrooms, a specific dining room, well equipped kitchen and bathroom, all spotlessly clean and obviously well cared for. If this doesn't tick all the dog owners boxes, I don't know what will.

I can't recommend this property highly enough. The hosts were very welcoming, full of enthusiasm and knowledge about the local area. The house itself is up a quiet cul-de-sac, just a few minutes walk from the sea front. It is extremely well presented inside and out. The secluded gardens, both back and front, are delightful to sit in and read, and the hot tub is great to relax in after a busy day. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need and the lounge has a front facing aspect, and just outside the window are several bird feeders, which are used regularly by a variety of birds. It's a lovely room to sit in. The bathroom is newly fitted and a pleasure to use. The downstairs bedroom is spacious with a walk in wardrobe, and overlooks the back garden. The dining room is well set out, with a bookcase full of books for you to browse through and read. I can't fault this property or the hosts - if you want to stay in this area, this is the house to stay in. Thank you so much for making our week such a lovely one.

JOY & NORMAN WERE FANTASTIC HOSTS - THEIR LOCAL KNOWLEDGE & RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PLACES OF INTEREST WAS FANTASTIC..

Superb 5 star accommodation with modern fixtures fittings, comfortable beds and settees. It was like staying in your own home with the quality and variety of cooking utensils, crockery etc. The gardens are absolutely lovely cottage gardens at the front and rear with secluded benches to sit on. It is very quiet as it is up a cul de sac and just over 5mins walk to the town centre or esplanade. If you are staying in the area this bungalow is a must to stay in. It is the very best of all the places we have stayed in over the last 10 years or so. We wish the owners every success and thank them for the hard work they have put in to maintain this wonderful accommodation.

The property was spotlessly clean and tidy and everything you could possibly want was provided. Joy and Norm gave us a great welcome.The property was very well situated for both amenities and the beach at Burnham and surrounding areas like Weston Super Mare and Cheddar. I particularly liked the gardens, both front and back gave you a feeling of privacy seclusion. The birds other wildlife seem to enjoy it too.
Mrs Griffin

We loved the bungalow. The owners had thought of everything, there were some lovely touches including a bird feeder just outside the large living room windows, with a variety of feathered visitors to watch and plenty of British wildlife books in the bookcase, just in case you wanted to identify them! The highlight of my stay was going out with one of the owners to the Somerset Levels to take photographs and learn about the area. I would highly recommend this for anybody interested in photography, bird watching or wildlife and ecology in general. The owner is very knowledgeable and great fun. The property is within walking distance of the beach and town centre and a short drive to lots of other attractions. We could not have asked for more.
