Dogs are allowed at Cockercombe but not at Ramscombe - so if you're booking both lodges together do bear this in mind. If you bring your furry friend to Cockercombe you'll be assured of ample dog walking opportunities, with plenty right on your doorstep amongst the beautiful Quantock Hills. You can opt for a gentle stroll through fields or along footpaths and forest trails, or aim for something more strenuous - perhaps a climb to Wills Neck, the highest point in the Quantocks, or to the iron age fort of Cockercombe Castle. Most of the pubs in theses parts are dog friendly so plan for a pint or lunch after your walk - the Rising Sun at West Bagborough and the Carew Arms at Crowcombe are both very good. The nearby Somerset coast has several dog friendly beaches and whilst some have seasonal restrictions, according to latest information, Brean, Berrow, Sand Bay and Kilve don't, so your pet pooch can happily run on the beach or go doggie paddling. Further afield are the scenic Somerset Levels, where you can climb Burrow Mump or Glastonbury Tor; or there's Exmoor National Park where you can romp across the moors or go to Tarr Steps, and Watersmeet for beautiful waterside scenery.
Note: Two dogs are welcome at Cockercombe and must be added when you are making your booking. A charge of £50 per dog will then be applied to the booking total.
