Hotels for Happy Doggies in South West England: Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire
Dog Friendly Hotels in The Quantocks, Somerset
The Editor Says: What an utterly fabulous area The Quantocks is for dogs; a tail wagging frenzy of canine countryside awesomeness. Not only does it have the wonderful Coleridge Way which runs from Nether Stowey to Porlock, but many of the beaches allow four legged visitors all year (Watchet and Doniford Beach are examples). Some local attractions also cater for canine needs, with the West Somerset Railway between Bishops Lydeard and Minehead one of the most popular. Mind you, I’ve been on a train before and it frightened me witless to start with. But that’s another story.
Booking Online: Making a reservation with Booking.com or LateRooms.com is easy and convenient. When doing so it is important that you make clear your intention to bring your dog in the “special requests” box so that the hotel or inn is made aware in advance. Please note that our “Paws Policy” information is for approximate guidance only and that the hotel, inn or bed and breakfast’s actual policies may change at any time and/or be more comprehensive. We play no part in the actual booking process.
