New for 2017

   Sam's
RNLI Rescue
2 minute beach clean
We will continue to support and promote the 2 minute beach clean through social media on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. We love the idea of lots of individual people just giving a little bit of their time to clean rubbish from beaches all around the country and collectively making a big difference. Even the beautiful beach at Dunster which is very well cared for still has the odd bit of marine litter and plastic pollution.

RNLI
We will be continuing our support for the RNLI. This is a cause we feel we have a link to, living and working so close to the coast, but we are also indebted to them as well. In 2004 our old dog Sam fell of a 60ft cliff onto the beach below, we got cut off by the tide rescuing him and had to be rescued ourselves. You can read the full story by clicking on the 'Sam's RNLI Rescue' button.
So this year, we will be trying to raise as much as possible for the RNLI. You can join us by either donating to the RNLI directly via their donation page or by visiting the RNLI shop in the pretty harbour at Minehead.

We will offer for any of our guests with dogs a 'dog sitting' service.
If during your stay at Salad Days you would like a few hours out one night, but do not want to leave your dog alone, we will come over and look after your dog for you. All we ask is that guests make a donation to the RNLI of £20 or more.

New for Dogs

We provide all dogs staying at Salad Days with a temporary "I'm on Holiday" tag. Then, should they get lost or stray whilst on their holidays at Dunster Beach we should be able to help re-unite them with their owners as soon as possible.

To help you when it comes to cleaning those muddy paws we have added a tethering point, you can now attach your dogs lead next to the bucket, watering can and dog towel in the front garden.

As Dunster Beach requests that your dog is on a lead when walking around the site we now also provide extendable leads to allow your dog a little more freedom whilst still being fully under control. Don't forget, that once below the tide line on the beach your dog can run freely off the lead.

All guests receive a letter a couple of weeks before arrival and we thought it was about time the canine guests did as well. So, we are now posting an addition to this letter giving useful doggy information.
Included are details of a great local pet supplier, Williton Pet Care. Guests can collect supplies en-route, or we have an arrangement with the supplier to deliver direct to Salad Days.
Williton Pet Care also offer a grooming salon, so your dog can look their best on their holidays. 
Leaflets giving full details of both the salon and the pet supplies are included within the letter.
We also give information on the local vet which we can highly recommend called White Lodge Veterinary Clinic. 
Detailed maps are included.

At Salad Days we always try to use local and individual Somerset products, so this year we will be introducing 'Mo's Marmalade' to our welcome basket. It's homemade marmalade from our village. We hope you enjoy
We now get our freerange eggs for the welcome basket from Lower Marsh Farm Dunster (which you can see from Dunster Beach) when available. They also supply 'raw' (unpasterised) milk if you fancy trying something different.
