About Sue Dollimore
We have owned Little Nod since December 1999. We live in Welcombe, just across the valley and usually do all the cleaning and maintenance of Little Nod ourselves. Sue is a retired nurse/therapist and Mick is a semi retired, part time builder. We love this area and look forward to sharing it with you.
Sue Dollimore purchased this Bungalow in 1999
Why Sue Dollimore chose Welcombe
We love this unspoilt area of Devon and moved here ourselves almost 30 years ago. We have lived in Welcombe since 1994.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Welcombe is one of North Devon's best kept secrets. A remote but welcoming area, as the name suggests. The beach is beautiful with a small waterfall, rock pools and a stretch of sand at low tide. There is a small car park, or you can walk down the wooded valley which is crowded with wild flowers, especially in Springtime. The Old Smithy Inn is a 2 minute walk away from Little Nod and is the very best pub we know. There is a village shop which offers an ordering service and a lovely working pottery. There are lots of other walks in the village, as well as the one to the beach and the South West Coast Path is easily accessed. We have lots of information about walks and other local attractions, as well as maps and a tide table for your use. We live in the village and do all the cleaning and maintenance of Little Nod ourselves. We keep this to a high standard and love to make it welcoming and comfortable for all our guests. Our regulars often describe it as their "home from home".

Lovely peaceful surroundings and the bungalow was the best equipped place ever, which made all the difference. Nice to have a friendly pub on the doorstep too and Sue and Mick, the owners of Little Nod were very welcoming and thoughtful.
Thank you so much for your review and I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay in Little Nod. Do come back again one day.
Brilliant setting and lovely homely accommodation
We spent a week here and had a lovely time, it was cold outside but inside we were nice and toasty. Set behind a great pub with brilliant food. It was very homely with all the things you would need, TV was brilliant and kitchen equipped with everything you would need. Totally quite a night and on a clear sky there is no light pollution so a great view of the starts. Would totally recommend here, great decor inside, easy access to lots of place, will be visiting again.
Thank you so much for your review, I'm glad you had a good stay. You are both welcome back anytime.
The bungalow is very clean and tidy and provides you with everything you could possibly ever need during your stay. Lots of information and maps on places to visit not only limited to the local area but also covering the surrounding countryside, all neatly organised by the owners waiting for you in the property. The Old Smithy Inn is welcoming with lovely food and right on your doorstep. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Thank you for your lovely review, we are so glad you enjoyed your holiday and the fabulous pub on our doorstep. You are both welcome back anytime.
