Why Carl Axon chose Sutton on Sea

Being a Pet owner myself, I was always disappointed at the lack of homes available that welcome pets, So when i purchased this lovely cottage, I wanted to make sure that other pet owners would have the pleasure in being able to bring their best friends with them too.

Sutton on Sea is such a nice, clean and relaxed seaside village and this particular home looked so lovely in the sun when i passed it one day, with a welcoming sunny garden, its cute little fishpond, it had everything i was looking for in a "Get away from it all" home. A Lovely peaceful location just minutes from the sea, a short stroll to the village shops & restaurants, this home has it all and has proven extremely popular with my wonderful guests & their little friends returning year after year.

What makes this cottage unique

This quaint cottage has a lovely large sunny garden, it is spacious and yet very homely. Guests often comment about how they really enjoy relaxing in the conservatory of which overlooks the pretty garden. It has a long driveway with off road parking for upto 3 cars and the garden is totally secure for pets enabling owners to have complete peace of mind.

We would be delighted to have you as guests and a great deal of care has been taken to prepare the cottage for your arrival to ensure you and your family feel right at home to enjoy a wonderful holiday or shortbreak stay.

Beautifully presented dog friendly cottage in the

  • 5 of 5

As last year a fantastic place to stay. The cottage is nothing short of perfect for us. Beautifully clean, all on one level and kitted out with everything you could possibly need. We come for a relaxing retreat with our dog , away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sunshine cottage is a fantastic getaway and a perfect base to explore the east coast. Very comfortable, superb location, Bentley our dog loves it being so dog friendly. everything you need nearby, shops, pub and takeaways, good transport links to local attractions. It's lovely to be able to have a cosy night in with a takeaway after a busy day of exploring. Thank you so much for having us in your lovely cottage again, See you next year. thankyou

Lovely sea side village and dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

Lovely peaceful haven for a much needed break, clean, well equipped and Truly dog-friendly in a great location with a private enclosed garden that our two well behaved dogs loved, where you could sit and hear nothing but the sounds of nature all around. A perfect retreat and yet only a few minutes walk from the beach and local amenities. Fabulous dog walks all around and plenty of beautiful places to visit. Will definitely be returning & thoroughly recommended

Lovely cottage on a quiet residential street and within easy walking distance to the beach

  • 4 of 5

There was a mix up with the changeover dates so the property was not ready when we arrived, but it was soon rectified and was clean and tidy by the time we returned from beach. The bungalow is in a perfect location and ideal for me, my husband and the dog. The garden is secure and private with good neighbours. Sutton has a good, but limited selection of shops, we had no trouble finding what we needed. The people are really friendly and the beach is brilliant with good safe walks along the promenade. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunshine cottage, (the only slight negative is the bathroom needs refurbishing but is fully functional). We were less keen on the surrounding area (Mablethorpe and Skegness) but that's a personal choice.

IT WAS A VERY DISSAPOINTING EXPERIENCE IN A PROPERY THAT DID NOT MATCH UP TO IT'S DESCRIPTION.

  • 1 of 5

We arrived to a shabby driveway, dandelions on lawn, bungalow, not cottage, on a large housing estate, and found a cold kitchen with broken heater and dirty equipment. (The weather was very cold 9% temperature). Provisions left for the so called 'Welcome hot or cold drink' were ridiculous. Only one storage heater left on. Bathroom heated towel rail broken. Had to drive to a shop to pay for electricity. £27.00 used in our one and a half day's there! Small cramped bedroom lead to an unlit, unheated conservatory which was the only safe access to the secure garden, which was the only bit living up to description Very disappointing and very overpriced property.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry you didn't enjoy your very short stay and it would be impossible to use £27 worth of electric in one day ! This is a very popular & happy holiday cottage and I'm extremely shocked at your review, as the guests a week earlier gave it a lovely review, I have since had very happy guests and regulars that have thoroughly enjoyed their stay too, So very disappointed in your comments and if it didn't "Match up to the description" others would comment on this too!

Special interest holidays:

Sutton on Sea is situated on the Lincolnshire coast and is a short distance from both Mablethorpe and Skegness. It is a small, quiet seaside village, more suited to those looking to unwind and relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the larger Lincolnshire holiday resorts. Despite its size, Sutton on Sea offers a variety of attractions including an award-winning beach.

Visitor Attractions - The Blue Flag award winning beach is ideal for bathers, with a wide expanse of soft sand and clean waters. Picturesque seafront gardens lie adjacent to the beach and there's a children's paddling pool. The Mablethorpe to Sutton Cycle Route also runs along the promenade and affords some stunning coastal vistas.

A number of events take place during the summer months including the Sutton-on-Sea Carnival. Its Grand Parade features a variety of marching bands and colourful floats as well as a number of fringe activities for kids.

Coast/Beach:

You can hear the waves of the sea from the cottage & Sutton-on-Sea offers clean soft sands and good swimming at its award winning blue flag beach.This is a resort which has a wide appeal to families, apart from a beautiful beach and all the fun of sand castles, there is a great outdoor pool which is entirely safe for children.

The town offers a cycleway, opportunities for horse-riding, a fairground in Mablethorpe, pubs, disco's, a golf course at Sandilands, and a nearby Seal Sanctuary.
