Dog Friendly Cottages and Bed & Breakfasts in Somerset
One of the major benefits for dog owners of staying on a traditional working farmhouse is that dogs are almost always welcome.
In addition to dog friendly accommodation, if you're taking your pet with you on holiday then you will want access to great dog-walking areas. Somerset has a diverse landscape with numerous footpaths and leisurely walking routes ideal for dogs and owners to explore together - from ancient woodlands, coastal routes and wild moorlands to an array of historic towns and picturesque villages.
Weston Super Mare offers plenty of unrestricted dog walking opportunities with most of the beaches having all year round access. 2 miles north is Sand point, a hilly headland managed by the National Trust, the views are over Weston and the North Somerset levels to the Mendips one way, and to Wales and the Severn Bridges the other and on a clear day can be breath taking.
Brean has a beautiful 3 Mile beach with exciting sand dunes to explore with your dog, it is possible to walk along the beach and then climb up Brean Down for a lovely view of the countryside and over the water.
Most other beaches in the Somerset area are also restriction free, but some operate a May-September restriction, so worth checking before you set off.
There are also plenty of opportunities for walking with your dog in the Exmoor Moorland which straddles Somerset and Devon.
The West Somerset Railway recognises that dogs are an important part of family life for many people and that they do not wish their pet to miss out on a day trip to the seaside or into the beautiful Somerset countryside, so welcome dogs on their trains.
For anyone looking to take a holiday in the UK with their dog, Somerset offers plenty to keep you and your dog occupied.
