  • Just wanted to say how delighted we are with Happy Tails. It's no exaggeration to say it's undoubtedly the loveliest house we've stayed in....and blimey, we've stayed in quite a few. Previously we've felt that we're expected to take lower standards just because we have dogs - thank you for having a completely different mind set. We're talking about a return visit and only been here 24 hours!! And it's torrential rain!
    Best wishes
    Tracey & Mike Rowe and 4 happy digesters!!

  • We had a wonderful holiday at Sandy Paws, staying with our son, his girlfriend and Jess the labrador. The bungalow is very spacious, clean and very well equipped. The beds are extremely comfortable and obviously good quality - a gold star bonus as far as I am concerned as that doesn't often happen in holidiay rental properties. Lots of extras available for dogs - spare bowls, dog towels, leads, poo bags (!) etc. just in case you have left anything you need at home. The rear garden is fully enclosed so no worries about your dog escaping under a hedge! The house location is superb, only a couple of minutes walk to an expanse of mostly deserted beach, but there is also a flat level pathway right along the coast (so you can walk your dog/s on the lead for miles if you want). All the facilities you need are available in Sutton on Sea (including a pet shop and a vet) but only a few minutes in the car to Mablethorpe if you want. If you like a peaceful holiday and haven't been to Sutton on Sea before I highly recommend you visit. We have been many times previously to the town but the first time staying at this property and it is the perfect place to stay - so close to the beach and within flat walking distance of the town. Loved it.

    — Carmel & Chris Wake, 02 Nov 2018
  • As regulars to Pawprints in Devon, we had not holidayed on the Lincolnshire coast before. However, Sandy Paws is a true home-from-home - and well named for the proximity to the beaches. Weather was great, Alford & local villages were lovely. Fat Seagull was fab!!! Hope to return soon, and sad to be leaving. Thank you Sandy Paws xx

  • Sandy Paws - House is beautiful & has everything you need. The local beach was ideal for our antisocial dog as he could be off lead & not bump into anyone. We'd definitely recommend the sand train in Mablethorpe for those with children. The Fat Seagull in Sandilands was fab for a Sunday lunch!

    — The Sidwells, 20 Jun 2017
  • Just back from our holiday at Sandy Paws. Loved it! The bungalow is well equipped, comfy and just as welcoming as Pawprints. Brilliant, quiet location within easy walking distance of the (mostly deserted) beach. No driving. Dogs can be off lead all the way! Only negative thing was we had to come home!

    — Kim & Stan M , 16 Jun 2017
  • We have previously stayed at Pawprints in Devon, so decided to give Sandy Paws a try. Loved it just as much as Pawprints, if not more! Location wise, it is perfect, very quiet and peaceful and only minutes from the doggy beach. The accommodation is beautifully presented. A lot of thought and hard work has gone into the renovations, from the upcycled furniture to all the little doggy touches! The shower was amazing and we really enjoyed sitting out in the garden, watching our doggies play on the grass! We had extremes of weather during our stay. Over the weekend, it was very hot and Sandy Paws was cool, airy and comfortable. Later in the week a severe weather warning was issued (Rain / gales) so we popped on the heating and we were lovely and warm and toasty! We stayed as a family of 4 and 16 dogs. 3 generations raging from 15 years to 79 years! During our stay, we had a meal at the Sea Breeze restaurant (a MUST!) We also visited Woodthorpe Garden Centre at Alford to see the animatronic dinosaurs and have a go at the Maze / Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary at Huttoft / Farmer Browns Ice cream Parlour / Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary / The smallest cinema in the world!!! Loewen Cinema at Mablethorpe / The Sooty Show and an acdc tribute act at the Embassy theatre in Skegness / Lido paddling pool in Sutton on Sea / Open Garden at Rose Cottage on Church Lane...there really is something for EVERYONE in the area and then it is lovely to come back to Sandy Paws and relax. This is our new favourite place. Wish we could stay more often, but have already booked again for next year!
