Two dogs can come with you on your group holiday at Pigertons, so no need to fret about booking kennels or dogsitters! That’s great news, after all, dogs are very much a part of the family so why shouldn’t they join you when you go on your holibobs?
Pigertons is very self contained so you shouldn’t need to be keeping an eye on your mutt all the time; there’s a walled garden and a roof terrace with a glass balcony, so as long as he’s well behaved it’ll be fine. What else is great is that because Pigertons is part of the Little Hesdin estate in the Somerset and Wiltshire borderlands, there are 20 acres of woods and fields to explore right from the doorstep! Just make sure you keep him on a lead though because there are alpacas, goats, sheep and chickens in the fields and we wouldn’t want it to get messy…
Get up early and take your pooch for an amble through Black Dog Woods – you’re in for a treat if the bluebells are out! If you’ve got an OS map you’ll see there are loads of footpaths and bridleways branching off from the village of Chapmanslade just up the road; pull on your boots, go explore. Climb up to Cley Hill for the most awesome views, walk up to the Iron Age fort at Bratton Camp and see the ginormous white horse carved on the chalk hillside – one of 8 of Wiltshire's famous White Horses.
If you’re going out for the day, plan it so you can take your four legged friend; have a saunter round the lakes at Stourhead, a stroll about the village at Lacock, or a wander amongst the flowers at the Peto Gardens at Ilford Manor. Another good walk is along the towpath at Bradford on Avon or at Seend Locks where there’s a good waterside pub, The Barge Inn. Tail wagging-tastic!
