We know how people like to be able to take their pet pooch on holiday with them – after all a dog is very much part of the family and it’s all rather sad to have to leave them in kennels when you head off for a large group holiday in the country. At Inwood Farmhouse you can bring your four legged friend along and let him join in the fun because by prior arrangement, one well behaved dog is welcome at a small extra charge.
Whilst Inwood Farmhouse doesn’t have a large garden you can take your pet out into the paved courtyard and on the doorstep there’s miles and miles of beautiful Somerset countryside so there’s plenty of opportunity for exercise. Head up into the wilds of the Quantock Hills and walk as far as you want to; spend a few hours on a gentle amble up through the wooded combes to the heaths where bracken and wild heather grow and the views are astonishing, stretching across the landscape to the Bristol Channel and on a clear day, to Wales. Climb to the top of Wills Neck, the highest point in the hills, stroll across Aisholt Common or to Triscombe Stone. Cothelstone Hill, Lydeard Hill and Hurley Beacon are all good walking territory, but we think one of the best things is to make your way up through Holford Combe and back down across the glen to The Plough Inn for lunch – that’s another thing, most of the country pubs round here are dog friendly so you don’t have to plan your day around your pet if you go out.
Then there are the beaches on the Somerset Coast; they vary from the sands at Blue Anchor, the mix of sand, rocks and mudflats at Doniford, pebbly Kilve (great for fossils) and the wild and bracing shores of East Quantoxhead and St Audries, but they all have their appeal and are great for a stroll by the sea with your dog. You could head off for a day exploring Exmoor National Park – Tarr Steps, Watersmeet, Horner Woods and the Holnicote Estate are all wonderful; get out there and feel alive, feel close to the beauty of nature, fresh air on your face, the wind in your hair, it’s hard to beat.
