Dog Friendly Hotels in Taunton
The Editor Says: To be absolutely honest, I know absolutely nothing about the Taunton area. Not a bean. However, the good folks at Taunton Deane Council have kindly produced a guide to circular walks in the area, which gets me out of a hole in this instance. But while there’s nothing wrong with walking in circles (I do it regularly), it should be pointed out that this area also makes for a great base for discovering areas such as the Quantocks and Exmoor. Have a look at our hotel pages for those places, too.
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.

This little 12 room hotel is just a mile from the centre of town. It dates back several centuries, and there are plenty of historic features for those who enjoy staying in period surroundings. Paws policy: Dog friendly (the Meryan House has its own Dandie Dinmonts called Bubbles and Dazzle).
Just 15 minutes away from Taunton and set amid glorious countryside, the Farmer’s Arms dates back to the 16th century and features just five guest bedrooms.
