Autumn is a truly magical and sensual time on the Quantock Hills in Somerset. The gorse is a mix of umber golden, the heather a carpet of amthetist, while the steep wooded coombes wear their fantastic autumnal cloaks.
After an exhilarating day out potter home to your cosy luxury dog-friendly cottage; light a roaring log fire and snuggle down sipping on a cup of warming hot chocolate with marshmallows on top, before possibly slipping into the hot tub to revive those aching limbs.
As the resplendent autumn colours start to fade and the trees drop their leaves, the forests and the open hills take on a different, simpler more naked and rugged feel. Walk along a deserted Somerset dog friendly beach with the waves pounding against the Jurassic shoreline. Can there be a better way to dispel those cobwebs and put some pink back in to ashen and tired faces.
Head to any one of the numerous dog-friendly gorgeous local pubs for a warm pie and pint of the local best, before heading back to your luxury self-catering cottage for a well deserved kip.
Need to escape the pandemonium and stress that Christmas and New Year can befall us all. Imagine sitting in your own private hot tub on Christmas or New Years morning and thinking of all the things you would have to be doing if you were at home and not staying in a luxury self-catering dog friendly cottage.
Instead while you sip on your champers you can idly think of how you want your day to pan out - oh the decisions, what time to eat, what to eat, what to drink next, what to watch on TV- no hassle, no "musts," or "have to's" just your enjoyment, peace and pampering - bliss.......
Perfect for escaping the big family events!
Perhaps one of the most stunning times of year to visit the mighty Quantock Hills. A time when everything seems possible and the world seems a better place. A time when the trees start their march towards their summer mantle and new born lambs and foals gamble on the moor. Through the woods carpets of bluebells and wild garlic lie.
All around your own private luxury enclosed cottage garden are the sounds of spring, the cuckoo calling gently on the breeze, the wood pigeons cooing and the wood pecker sounding out his new abode. At the luxury dog friendly Quantock Cottages you don't just witness nature, you are part of it.
Nothing says holidays like a summer holiday spent in Somerset. Thick clotted cream teas, bowls of locally grown strawberry, picnics on the beach or up on the moor. Buckets of Pimms and locally produced ciders. Long lazy pub lunches. Days spent exploring the numerous family friendly tourist attractions, evenings spent BBQ'ing and planning the following days adventures.
With so much to do and see in Somerset you will be wishing you had at least a month.
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.
