Little Nod has been owned by Mick and Sue Dollimore since December '99.
Sue sadly died in December 2020 from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and is very sadly missed. Having helped with Little Nod whilst Sue was ill, daughter Chrissy is now taking bookings and managing the property along with Mick.
Mick lives in Welcombe, just across the valley and usually does all the maintenance of Little Nod. Mick and Sue have always put so much love and care into looking after Little Nod and now Chrissy hopes to do so in the same vein. She grew up in the village and then owned and ran the village pub with husband Lee for 6 years until 2010. She now lives with Lee and their two boys near Boscastle but very regularly frequents Welcombe. We all love this area and look forward to sharing it with you.
