CELEBRATIONS & TREATS
If you are looking for that truly special place to celebrate a "big" event, possibly your or your loved ones birthday or even your fur kids birthday (and don't laugh many of our woofie guests have celebrated major life events such as joining the family anniversaries or indeed their "furby-days!") or perhaps a mini-moon or a honeymoon or simply you just want to celebrate being alive and being able to enjoy time out and a much needed break - well look no further our 3 rural luxurious and secluded cottages are the perfect and dare I say the "pawfect" place...
If you were staying in a top hotel you would not be doing the shopping and you would expect to be able to have massage and beauty treatments, so why should it be any different if you are staying in a luxury romantic dog friendly rural self-catering cottage with a hot tub - at the Quantock Cottages it isn't, the choice is entirely yours. You may wish to potter around the lovely farm shops. You might want to enjoy cooking together, or you can enjoy the benefits of a luxury hotel but with the privacy and flexibility of boutique self-catering by availing yourself of our "treats."
Inner Goddess in the lacal village of Wiliton offers a vast array of massage therapy's from sports through to Myofascial Release. They also offer Microdermabrasion which according to them is the secret to smooth clear skin without surgery - sounds good to me! They also offer an extensive range of beauty treatements from their signature "Time Out" treatment to full body polishes - lash extensions, St. Tropez air tan, a "shrinking violet "inch loss body wrap - definiately sounds good to me and you can even get your teeth whitened as well.
Luxury Food Boxes
Why not spoil yourself by having a wonderful butcher/fishmongers box delivered to your cottage. Order steaks the size of houses, maybe a fresh lobster tickles your taste buds, or perhaps some lovely fat juicy scallops are calling you. What ever your wish the Somerset Farmhouse Butcher and Deli will be delighted to advise you as to what is in season and will deliver to your cottage.
It should be noted that all supermarkets deliver to the cottages.
Jen is a professional beauty therapist who offers ‘at home’ treatments. No need to even get in that hotel lift and go to the spa, the spa comes to you in your luxury self-catering cottage, how indulgent is that!
Choose from an extensive range of massage treatments to include Swedish. Jen also offers eye, hand, feet, facials, treading and waxing treatments together with a all other aspects of beauty treatments.
Our local canine hydrotherapy center is awesome, they have an indoor pool and an underwater treadmill. Hydrotherapy does not have to be just for those woofies recovering from injury but it is really useful for youngsters to work of excessive energy in a safe environment, older dogs who don't need more impact on their joints than is necessary and for those who just love swimming in lovely warm water as oppsed to the cold sea or equally cold rivers.
Pet Food Delivery
In order to save you valuable car space the local very good large pet shop can deliver to your cottage your dogs own brand food, together with any toys or holiday treats that your fur kids might require.
Whilst pretty much everywhere in Somerset is dog friendly and this includes the beaches and the pubs there may be an occasion that you would like your furry ones to be walked for you or even if you wanted to go out for a meal without the woofers then Karen (who is a dog trainer) lives in the village and offers walking and sitting services. We have used her extensively and I fear that our dogs love her more than us!
Our resident web designer and photographer Georgina Preston is a professional equine and canine portrait photographer. She can capture your fur kids personality perfectly!
Please note that we do not provide any of the "treats" listed directly. When you book your cottage your guest Login will have contact details of the providers so that you may contact them and make the arrangements - you know your diary and they will have theirs.
We have just spent the most incredible time here in Somerset at the Quantock Cottages to celebrate my 40th (shhh don't tell anyone) we were expecting comfort and privacy but by goodness our cottage and the area far out exceeded our expectations which were high. The four of us loved it and the woofers are going home for a rest after all the exploring they did where as Dom and I feel rested and so relaxed after what has been a horrible last 12 months. Thank you to you all for making this birthday something that I will always remember.. and yes I know we have booked again for the same time next year so of course I will remember!
Insert Karen, Dom, Michelle, Dave and Lolly, China and Ace the four legged ones.
