Pet-friendly holidays and accommodation in Taunton, Somerset
For cultural canines who love to sniff out some local history followed by a snooze by the fire in a dog-friendly pub, Taunton in Somerset is just the ticket. Away from the boutiques, galleries, dining and leisure facilities of the high street, you’ll find winding lanes with period buildings, Victorian fountains and open parks where furry friends can play. Everywhere you look, the town is bursting with olde-worlde charm.
One of the top dog-friendly attractions in Taunton is Hestercombe House and Gardens where pups are welcome to explore 50 acres of lakes, temples, woodland walks and colourful gardens. When they need to rest their paws, they can join you for a spot of afternoon tea in the café and choose some souvenirs for their favourite people in the shop. You might also like to pay a visit to Bishops Lydeard Mill just outside the town, which allows dogs on leads to admire its beautifully restored water mill and museum displays.
Surrounded by the glorious landscapes of the Quantock Hills and the Somerset Levels, there are plenty of opportunities for walkies from our dog-friendly cottages in Taunton. You can explore the great outdoors together before heading back to our self-catering dog-friendly holiday cottages to let your faithful friend curl up on a blanket by the hearth or soak up the last rays of sunshine in an enclosed garden.
