Being the owners of 3 dogs, we understand that for many a UK holiday without the "fur kids" is no holiday at all. Thus our three unique luxury self-catering cottages with private hot tubs, open fires and enclosed gardens are totally dog friendly and welcome up to 3 dogs per cottage, and possibly more on request. So if you dream of a luxury self-catering coastal break with strolls along dog-friendly beaches or brisk walks on the open moors, the Quantock self-catering luxury pet-friendly holiday cottages will delight both you and your pets.

NB If you don't have dogs, please do not worry our Quantock Cottages are not a "kennels." We pride ourselves on a very high standard of house keeping.
It is often difficult to find a truly luxurious cottage which will accept dogs, let alone more than one. You live in a lovely home, why would you want to go on holiday to a place that is less comfortable than your own home.
Both you and your dogs want to be spoilt on your holidays - that is after all why you work as hard as you do, so can you can take wonderful holidays in beautiful luxury dog friendly cottages and be able to enjoy exploring new places together. This was why we built The 3 Luxury pet friendly Quantock Cottages and tailored them to fit the needs of both the two and four footed guests.
At our luxury pet friendly cottages our canine guests seem to settle in to their new "home" very quickly as they understand that it is a place that loves having them to stay. On arrival, if they look on the dining table (and please don't tell them as it will ruin the surprise) they will find little gifts and a welcome card waiting for them from our dogs. There are water bowls and a dog beds as well for them. The local pet food shop can deliver your own brand food to your luxury holiday home, which will save you car space.
If your dogs like to sit on the sofas, that is no problem, all we ask is that you bring lots of blankets to cover them. We do ask that dogs do not go onto the beds. The linen and bed covers are very expensive and impossible to remove dog hair from. With wall to wall heating and a lovely log burning stove to lounge in front of, there is no better place for a dog who has been out busy exploring the local pet friendly beaches and moors.
One of the joys of being on holiday at the romantic luxury self-catering Quantock Cottages in Somerset is that the gardens of each cottage are not only sizable but they are completely enclosed so the dogs can have fun exploring while you relax. We would never say the gardens are completely secure - where there is a will and all that. But over the years we have had many canine guests both small and large and the gardens have contained them.
From the pet friendly enclosed gardens the Quantock Hills are literally steps away and with over 9,500 acres you and the dogs can have days of exploring without ever having the need to cross your tracks. For those who have mud loving woofies, worry not, each of the 3 luxury dog friendly cottages have doggie "spa" areas which have outside hot and cold showers and even built in doggie baths - how cool is that!
If you are worried that when walking on the open Quantock Hills your woofies might chase livestock or that they might just have too much fun exploring and might not want to come back when called, we have a purpose built 3/4 acre enclosed canine woodland play zone complete with an agility course for our doggie guests to enjoy.
So if you just want to toss a ball, or you want some space to do some serious dog training, or perhaps just have fun hanging out with your bestie trying your hand and their paws at agility you can do this secure in the knowledge that this large play area is completely enclosed and is only 2 minutes from your cottage.
The Quantocks are are the perfect location for a luxury romantic holiday or mini-break and and also for a gathering of friends and family as it offers the best of the English countryside, yet is two hours closer to London and the Midlands than Cornwall or South Devon. Enjoy stunning beaches, swaths of open moorland and delicious local fayer and not forgetting the world-famous ciders and ales.
Although we have only 3 luxury holiday properties with open fires and hot tubs it is a huge team and family effort to ensure that our guests both 2 and 4 footed have the best time, so we thought you might like to see who we are.
There are always many questions one has when considering booking a unique luxury self-catering holiday cottage which is dog friendly. We hope to answer most of your questions on this website particularly on our FAQ page. But if not please feel free to contact us.
Being the owners of 3 dogs we appreciate that canines are very important members of the family and that they must enjoy a holiday as much as you do.
