At our dog-friendly places in Somerset, your four-legged friend is welcomed with open arms, not just tolerated, so you can relax completely. If dogs could design their own holidays, we’re pretty sure they’d come up with glamping — unlimited fresh air, oodles of open space to bound around in and more sticks than you can shake a… well, you know. The coast, rolling hills and laid-back country pubs of Somerset are the perfect place to spend some quality time with your good boy or girl.
Not all dog-owners (or dogs) have the same taste in glamping holidays, which is why you’ll find so many unique spaces in our collection. In Somerset you might fancy a rustic cabin with views over the Axe Valley, an idyllic woodland yurt camp, or perhaps a revamped 1940s showman’s wagon. Whatever you choose, rest assured that we’ve personally visited and inspected each one, often bringing our own four-legged friends along for the ride. We don’t just make sure that the place you’re staying is special, we check out the local attractions, walks and eateries too.
Our dog-friendly places are safe and practical, with plenty of space for running around and great walks on the doorstep. Don’t think we’ve forgotten about our human guests though – you need to relax just as much as your canine companions, so there’s no compromise on style, character and in some cases, total luxury.
Sure, you’ve headed out on holiday with your dog(s) before without much planning, throwing caution to the wind. More often than not, you’ll have come up against something and in a vain attempt to make the unpredictable more predictable, here’s our tips for a glamping break with your dog(s).
Who we are Bland and generic aren’t in our vocabulary at Canopy & Stars. Instead, we want to bring you the most unique and uplifting experiences in nature whether you get your kicks from non-stop adrenaline activities, or leisurely strolls and deep relaxation. Either way, if you book with us, you’ll find the most spectacular glamping places immersed in nature — in Somerset, the rest of the UK and beyond.

What to do with your dog in Somerset Take your dog on wild walks in the Mendip Hills, play on the huge curve of sand at Brean Beach and climb Glastonbury Tor together for views over the Somerset Levels. There’s never a dull moment for active hounds in Somerset, but more mellow pups are equally well catered for with trips on the West Somerset Heritage Railway and dog-friendly cafés and pubs around every corner. At the end of the day, reward yourselves by kicking back on the deck with a West Country cider, a BBQ and a few doggie treats. After all that excitement you might even get a lie-in.
