As a lover of all things vintage, this fibro cottage just across from the beach was a delight! It is completely done up - outside and in - in original 50's style furnishings and colours. We kept walking around saying 'we want one like this'.
I can't believe I didn't get photos of the interior after being there 3 days. Whoops! But the 2 bedrooms had black lady lamps, cute vintage dresses hanging from the wardrobes and great art on the walls.
Don't you love the flamingos!
And to give you an idea, here is me at 20 weeks pregnant. Getting bigger, puffier and started to struggle here and there. We went for a walk around the abandoned lighthouse at the point which was lovely. The fresh sea breeze, lots of sleep, reading and scrabble was just what I needed after 4 days stuck inside at a market.
We both think Nelly, my beloved 8 year old (almost!) stumpy tail cattle/border collie cross had the best time of all. The cottage is dog-friendly so they had a huge supply of doggy toys in the backyard which she kept moving around the yard then carefully placing 3-4 of them into her bed at night. I kept wondering how the neighbours felt about her squeaking her toys continuously first thing at 7am then up to 10pm at night! It sounded like some crazy clown was hooning around the backyard.
But it was the fantastic endless stretch of beach at the end of the street (4 houses up) that won the cake for Nelly. Being winter, no one was down there but I imagine its different in a month or two. It's a dog friendly beach so we went down every day to throw Nelly's frisbee til she tired out and ran into the surf for a cool-down. She is a little hippo that loves to wallow in water, even if its freezing.
Do you know any dog friendly holiday places? We have stayed at quite a few and found them all to be a fantastic experience.
