We're dog lovers here at Sleeps 12 and we like to take our dogs everywhere with us, so we perfectly understand that you don't want to leave them in kennels or with friends when you go off for your large group stay; well, the good news is that The Granary is a dog friendly property, so you can pack the lead, the bowl and the toys, and bring your pet pooch with you when you come to stay. And won't that tail be wagging! There are so many places to get some exercise around these parts, with the beautiful Quantock Hills on the doorstep, and the scenery is so varied - you've got shaded woodlands (a picture when the bluebells are out in the spring), rugged heathland, open fields, and quite dramatic coastline. Head to nearby Great Wood for a walk amongst some very tall fir trees, or walk from Kilve to East Quantoxhead, taking in an old chantry and a medieval manor as well as some great for fossil hunting territory. Or walk from nearby Nether Stowey over the hill to Holford - just like the famous romantic poets Wordsworth and Coleridge did; maybe you'll feel inspired to write some poetry too! Stop for refreshments in one of the dog friendly inns, or take a picnic and find a spot with a glorious view of the Somerset countryside and the Bristol Channel. For days trips with your dog, visit Exmoor or the Somerset Levels, where you'll find walks of all lengths in some very diverse landscapes, or go further up the Somerset coast for some fun on one of the dog friendly beaches - Berrow (North and South beaches) is good, with a long stretch of sand and mud flats.
