Leading down to a stream and set in a couple of acres of orchard boasting a secluded cottage style garden shared only with neighbouring property. Just 2 miles from sought after village of Wedmore.

The young, old and four-legged will love this delightful property in the verdant and beautiful Somerset countryside. Surrounded by lush greenery, gather four friends plus one canine chum and discover rocky Jurassic coastline, exposed heathland summits, deep wooded combes and undulating farmland all waiting to be explored. After hours of tongue-lolling, lung busting fetch, return happily weary to relax in contemporary yet cosy style.

With traditional features such as exposed beams and stone walls, this converted stone barn is on a complex of properties yet retains its privacy. Wipe muddy paws and dry damp fur as you enter the kitchen and pop the kettle on before trotting through to the lounge, the ideal place to relax with a good book. Open the French doors and let your pup snooze on the private terrace whilst you get comfortable on the sofa, or perhaps take a glass of wine to catch some rays. As the sun goes down, retreat inside, light the wood burner and settle in for the night as your contented canine curls up in the warmth. Fido will wake refreshed with an early morning stroll in the shared orchard, watching the sun rise on another wonderful day.

With two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Mendip Hills (8 miles) and Quantock Hills (27.5) close by, there are plenty of woodland, coastal, heathland and grassland walks to keep even the most active doggy happy! Walk the spectacular Chedder Gorge (5.5 miles) and Ebbor Gorge (8.5 miles) or wander the Stockhill woods (10 miles). The cities of Bath (27 miles) and Bristol (23 miles) have numerous bars, restaurants and museums. Burnham-on-Sea (9 miles) has golden sandy beaches, where a water-loving dog could enjoy a paddle while you relax on the beach or climb the hill to Glastonbury Tor (11 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This cottage was really cosy, you had everything you needed, the wood burner was a great hit. Lovely peaceful area. Also lovely treats on arrival which were much appreciated.

This was our second time at Orchard Cottages and it does not disappoint, the welcome was warm and inviting and the cottage was great. The location was just right in terms of away from the main roads but close enough to all the local attractions. We look forward to returning again.

Beautifully converted cottage with very comfortable beds and cosy living room. Perfect location for dogs with the orchard just outside the door. Lovely patio front and back, one being in the sun all day. Peaceful location with a quiet road and series of tracks for strolls after supper.

Everything that you need is provided. Nice bits and pieces around to make it homely. Lovely and clean when you can walk around barefoot. Peaceful place to return to after a busy day. Visited Wells, Brean Down and Glastonbury Tor so didnt have to travel more than 9 miles all week. Two TVs so no problem during Wimbledon.
