A fantastic pet-friendly cottage, located in the heart of the Somerset countryside close to some wonderful historic towns, ideal for a family or couples.

Bring two canine companions and four humans to this beautifully converted property. Situated on a family-run farm, you will have chickens and pygmy goats as your neighbours. Walks from the doorstep run into the farm fields and you’ll be close to two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The cottage has been lovingly converted and provides a warm welcome into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Prepare a delicious homecooked meal in the practical and stylish kitchen, then enjoy eating together around the dining table. After dinner, snuggle in front of the TV with the dogs by your feet, or get competitive over some games. Get some shuteye in one of two charming bedrooms, next to a useful shower room. Outside, is a raised patio area with furniture. Take a seat with a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the farm’s countryside.

Situated just outside of the bustling town of Taunton (5 miles), this location is close to a dog-friendly pub (2 miles) and has a plethora of walks available from right outside the door. Historic Taunton has a wide range of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as a weekly market and access to some delightful riverside walks. The home is set between the Blackdown Hills (13 miles) and Quantock Hills (16 miles), two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Both are great for walking, biking, horse riding and have stunning, far-reaching views. You will also be close to the coast for beach days and coastal strolls, visit the Site of Special Scientific Interest, Kilve Beach (24 miles), which welcomes dogs all year.

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

We had a lovely stay at the Old Piggery with 2 small children when visiting family in the local area. The property is very well equipped and worked perfectly for us with a young family. The property has comfy beds with lovely thought out modern interiors. We were made to feel very welcome with a few essentials such as tea and coffee and some amazinRead moreg brownies to help us settle in which was really appreciated. We hope to return in the future when we next plan a trip to the area. Thank you Hide

Beautiful property of the highest standard. Immaculate, spotlessly clean and comfortable. A real home from home with everything you could possibly want, plus the owners leave a lovely little welcoming tray - home made cake, a mini churn (milk bottle type) of milk in the fridge, tea, coffee, and half a dozen eggs laid by chickens in the paddock nearRead moreby! They were delicious!! Hide
