By prior arrangement Bean Goose Barn allows one well behaved dog, which is great news if you’ve got a pet pooch who’s very much part of your family holiday. It means you can bring your dog along when you come for a holiday or short break in Somerset – and what’s good is that right on the doorstep there’s miles and miles of glorious countryside to discover. No shortage of walkies!

Bean Goose Barn is on the Somerset Levels which is a very unique landscape of low lying fields and meadows, great for wildlife (particularly birds, so twitchers should bring binoculars!) but it can get a bit wet underfoot in the winter – so bring your wellies, just in case. The scenery in this neck of the woods is breathtaking and best appreciated from one of the vantage points; climb up to the Burton Pynsent Monument at Curry Rivel or to the ruined church at Burrow Mump and you’ll have a vista of unspoilt countryside that stretches for miles.

Take a stroll along the River Tone and wind up at The Bird in Hand at North Curry for a drink or lunch – it’s one of the many dog friendly pubs you’ll find in these parts. Go to Langport and have a saunter along the River Parrett to Muchelney where you should pop in the church to see the cheeky angels painted on the 17th century wagon roof. Head over to the Devon and Dorset coast for walks along the beach or on the South West Coast Path, or explore the beautiful Blackdown Hills where there are walks through the forest at Castle Neroche and Staple Hill, or around the tranquil nature reserve at Otterhead Lakes. Happy you, happy dog – just make sure you’ve got your camera with you.

Note: 1 dog is welcome at Bean Goose Barn and must be added when you are making your booking. A charge of £50 will then be applied to the booking total.
