Hotels for Happy Doggies in South West England: Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire
Dog Friendly Hotels in South Somerset
The Editor Says: What makes the South Somerset area so ideal for dogs and their owners is the sheer number of fabulous walks to be had. Truth be told, you’re never that far from a designated footpath wherever you are, and even the upper reaches of the Parret Trail are to be found here. What’s more, for a bit of history there’s always the grounds of the National Trust’s Barrington Court where we’re welcome on leads.
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.
