The Salad Days Story

Long, long ago when flares were in fashion and in a far, far away place called Brum, the land of the Heavy Metal people, there lived a little boy whose name was Brett.
Now, this little boy’s dreams were to have his own faithful hound, a big car called a Land Rover and to live in a wooden beach hut by the sea in Dunster.

You see, for many years Brett had been taken on holiday by his Mum and Dad to stay in a Dunster beach hut and begged his parents to let him live there all year but his parents for some reason never wanted to, so poor little Brett every year had to wave goodbye to the huts, the beach and Dunster. He so enjoyed putting the tuppence in the meter, carrying the water, trips to the shower block and climbing into the bunk beds after a fun packed day of adventures and exploring. He met the best of friends who built the biggest sand castles, ate jam sandwiches and ice cream and played all day until it was nearly dark.

All too soon that little boy grew up but he never forgot his childhood dreams and still visited those little beach huts most years when his parents went to stay. He worked very very hard for over 40 years saving his money when he could still with the same dreams. Along the way he met Susan and was very excited to take her to see the little huts, she was smitten too, and now the dream was shared by both of them.

One year in 2015 Brett and Susan were visiting those same little huts when they noticed a ‘for sale’ sign. They ummmmed and ahhhhhhhed, counted and checked and decided let’s go for it, its bostin. Number 235 was soon to be theirs. The name was simple, it was to be ‘Salad Days’ because those little huts between the sea and the hills in the land of the Summer people, they were Brett’s salad days.

So when Brett had his 50th Birthday he drove up in his Land Rover with his faithful hound ‘Maverick’ next to him to his little beach hut with the biggest smile ever on his face as though he was 5 again …… and they all lived happily ever after.

We hope that when our guests stay at Salad Days they can capture some of the enchantment of the place and perhaps make a few dreams happen of their own.
