Why should you ever leave your dogs behind when it comes to heading off on holiday? We’re lining up dog friendly lodges for you in this guide so that you can take a much needed break in Somerset without the need to leave your four legged friend at home. Find a cabin that’s comfy, roomy and with great country links!
What should you be looking for in the best pet friendly lodges in Somerset? A dog friendly holiday in the region might pit you close to country lanes and amazing green views, or might put you just around the corner from some delicious orchards. It’s entirely up to you!
A great lodge for accessing Somerset from might have a hot tub to relax in, an open plan living area, an enclosed garden, a smart TV and a BBQ. There’s nothing wrong with looking for any of the above! Find yourself a ground floor breakaway that’s perfect for your tastes.
If you’ve never had the pleasure of holidaying in Somerset before, there’s no time like the present to hunt down that perfect lodge, log cabin or chalet that’s sandwiched between countryside and coast. The dog friendly walks and scenes down in Somerset really do deserve exploring all on their own, meaning that pictures and videos you might have seen online really won’t be doing them any justice.
Explore the rugged Cheddar Gorge and take the time to look out upon the immensely beautiful Quantock Hills, a famous and well-loved Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the region. We love AONBs – if you ever feel like stepping out of your enclosed garden every once in a while to check out more of the local greenery, you can always do so with a cheeky holiday trip down to Somerset.
Quantock Hills aside, be sure to head north to look at the beautiful coastlines. The South West Coastal Path is really easy to connect to from here, meaning if you have designs on taking your pets along the best of Somerset’s sandy shores, then you are going to do far worse than look to the uppermost beaches. They are well connected to various villages and town scenes across the region.
There’s that unmistakable charm to a western country break that’s really hard to beat. Why should you have to leave your dogs at home? The region is crammed full of cottage providers and lodge owners happy to support dog friendly holidays all through the year. The walking routes through the countryside inland, and coastal paths around areas such as Weston Super Mare are really worth every penny.
The lodges and chalets we have hunted down for you in our list should all provide you with a short drive to either country or coast, with some properties even sitting on the doorstep of greenery or sandy straights as you demand. This is a corner of England and Wales that really tries hard to give you the best of all worlds, and we dare say it succeeds!
Along with sea views, this family friendly region will also have plenty of heritage and history for you to explore with your dogs. Take a look at the village pub scene in Cheddar itself, as well as Grade II listed buildings dotted across the various towns and districts. Of course, Somerset is also famous for being the home of Glastonbury, which is of course known globally as the host of one of the best-loved music festivals on the planet.
Whether you plan day visits to Somerset attractions or really want to take in as much as possible over the course of a week, it really makes sense to look into properties nearby that offer easy access to everything you want to see and do. And why not?
Find yourself a cosy, family friendly lodge with an open fire, an enclosed garden, your own private decking, and more. You might be looking for a ground floor property with a kitchen and dining room combi. You might simply be looking for a dog friendly holiday spot that’s close to the Exmoor National Park, or Dartmoor just across the way. In either case, it shouldn’t be hard for you to hunt down that perfect Somerset breakaway.
