“What a lovely place - house, surroundings, peace, tranquillity - perfect!”- Mr & Mrs M - Cambs
We do allow dogs at Cornflower Cottage (maximum of two), by prior arrangement, to discuss breeds and number!
The barn is in a fantastic location for dog walking as you do not need to step more than fifty yards on a road of any description to be able to walk for miles. The footpaths and bridleways on the Quantocks, Exmoor and Blackdown Hills are great for both flat and hilly walks, as long or short as you wish. We provide, in the barn details of walks, both close to Halse and further afield.
Many attractions in Somerset allow dogs, which helps create a great holiday. A particular favourite is the West Somerset Steam Railway (approx 5mins). Dogs are welcome on the trains, and actually receive their own tickets! There are many stations on the 22 mile railway, and we have a great book of walks from them. Two of the stations are at the beach, Blue Anchor and Dunster, and dogs are allowed on these beaches all through the year.
Many National Trust properties allow dogs into their gardens as do many of the great gardens nearby. We do insist at West Hayes that dogs are never to be left alone in the barn. Many of the local pubs are very dog friendly! Indeed The New Inn welcomes dogs into the bar area where there are some lovely tables for eating! We also request that dogs are not allowed on furniture or in any of the bedrooms. We have a partition between the kitchen and living room and we ask you to leave the dog in the kitchen at night-time. We have a dog bed you are welcome to borrow. The garden here is ideal for dogs, being totally enclosed, with a secure gate and fence.
