The place

Staying here you’ll feel your stresses melt away, as you take in the vast sweeping views of the flatlands that stretch for miles around Glastonbury. Load up on supplies from local markets for meals out on the deck. Spend lazy afternoons on the sofa, book in one hand, and tousling your dog sleeping in sunbeams below, or enjoy watching your four-legged friend gallop ahead on the many walks straight from the front door.

In the neighbourhood

  • You’re an hour’s walk, or a six-minute drive from Wells at Rookham View Lodge, and it’s well worth the quick journey. Famed for its incredible Cathedral (well behaved dogs on leads welcome on the ground floor tours) as well as the Bishop’s Palace and Gardens (gardens are dog friendly, but you’ll have to take turns exploring the Palace!) Every Wednesday and Saturday, Wells Market runs from 9am to 3pm – serving everything from local wines, to cheeses, meats, arts & crafts and more – and even better ‘Tom the Pet Man’ is there, with Brothers Muir Pet supplies.
  • If you’re in the mood for good food, but aren’t feeling the effort to make it, pop round the corner to The Queen Vic at Priddy. There’s incredible food, local ales, and at Christmas there’s decorations like you’ve never seen – including a Christmas tree constructed from empty bottles. Best of all, they’re dog friendly.
  • If you’re happy to travel a little further afield for a bite to eat, pop over to The Litton, in Litton! Just a 15-minute drive, it’s a stunning venue sat alongside the River Chew. Eat locally sourced ingredients inside among the wooden roof beams and ancient stone walls, or out al fresco by the sounds of trickling water.
  • It’s just under a half hour’s drive to Glastonbury, and the almost adjacent Street – where Clark’s Village shopping centre is found. If you’re touring the former, see the many local shops, and local produce as well as arts & crafts. Take a trip up to the Glastonbury Tor, dogs on leads welcome, and admire the incredible views. If the latter, you can take dogs on leads round Clark’s Village on leads, with some shops even welcoming well behaved dogs in.
  • You’re a four-minute drive, or a 40-minute walk from Stockhill Wood. Populated with tall pine trees, and pockmarked from tin mining, the woods here are magical to explore. You will love being led around by your dog’s keen nose and is one of the most stunning woods for miles around.
  • You’re not far from Cheddar Gorge, at a 16-minute drive. Pop out to explore the many walks, either from the centre up to the top of the gorge, or from the top to Black Rock, Long Wood or Velvet Bottom – for a gentler incline. Once suitably exercised, pop into one of the dog-friendly cafes or pubs in the centre of the town, like the Edelweiss Café or The Seymour Arms.
