My boyfriend stumbled across the firs searching for a place to stay for my 40th birthday weekend that would accommodate two lively but loving Labradors...we'd struggled in the past with places that claimed to be "dog friendly" , who knew we had 2 large dogs which then turned out to have pokey rooms and no doggy friendly facilities (a simple hose pipe makes all the difference after a day at the beach!) but the Firs was all Mandy claimed it to be
Paul spoke to Mandy on the phone to reassure himself that they were in fact dog friendly and we weren't disappointed, we were welcomed with open arms and showed to our lovely room which had ample space for the dogs to curl up on a blanket.
We asked whether Mandy knew of any dog friendly pubs where we could eat later and as they do change their minds regularly she offered to ring round and check, what a lovely thing to do,
Next morning having missed breakfast we led the doggies out to the car where Mandy accosted us and demanded we eat something before we leave,, she said good morning to the dogs who were rather pleased to see her and she then led us to our saved table! Expecting tea and toast we were presented with a wonderful full English brekkie with the best bacon I've had in ages!
What a wonderful hostess, the staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble!
We will be back and can wholeheartedly recommend the firs to you
