When deciding to book a holiday there are often many questions that need answers, and below are just some of the ones that we often get asked together with their answers. If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please note once you have confirmed your holiday you will be sent a link to the electronic "Guest Information" book for the Quantock Hide in which we have tried to anticipate your every need. In this Online book you can expect to find an insider’s guide to the area’s must-see attractions, hidden gem restaurants, best local pubs and activities, together with property specific details such as directions, post codes for supermarket deliveries and instructions how to use the appliances.
Over the years we have had many many dog guests, both large and small come to stay and the garden fencing has have contained them without a trouble. We would never say they are totally secure as if you have a complete escape artist where there is a will there is a way and all of that!
No not at all. We so appreciate that dogs are very important members of the family thus they are welcome to use all of the cottage along with their human parents. Our only "house rule" is that we ask that dogs do not go on to the beds.
Yes we do supply tea towels and oven gloves. In your cottage you will also find a starter pack of tea, coffee, salt, pepper, loo paper, basic cleaning materials, olive oil etc.
Yes the cottage has WIFI and most mobile networks work well. Please note that this is a rural area so super-fast broadband has yet to reach us!
Yes there is one in each bedroom
Not it is not ideal. The cottage is arranged over two floors, and there are 17 garden steps from the parking area down to reach the cottage. We would suggest that you look at our other cottage which is further down the lane called Coleridge. The website address is www.coleridgelodge.com
Yes. Some of the very best walking in the country is on the door step the 9,500 acres of Quantocks (SSI & AONB). The coast is also only a mile and a half away.
Yes it is. It is enclosed with stock fencing and topped off with a double strand of high tensile wire. The dog zone is 2 minute stroll from the Quantock Hide
Yes it is. It is luxurious, private and romantic and of course it has its own private hot tub.
Yes it is.
No you book these direct with the individual service providers as you know your diary and they know theirs! When you book your stay, you will be sent in your documentation a link to the cottage's electronic house-book. Contained within this is the menus and contact details for the providers.
Yes the cottage has wall to wall central heating and there is also the the log burner.
The BBQ is a charcoal BBQ. Charcoal can be purchased from the village shop at the end of the lane.
Yes. All the local beaches are dog friendly year round, although in the summer at Minehead beach you have to keep to the right hand side. For best sandy beaches, Blue Anchor, Dunster and Bream Beaches fit the bill. Your local beach is Kilve, a mile and a half away.
Yes all the main supermarkets deliver. As do the local Butcher/fishmonger and the local green grocer/deli.

The Hood Arms at the end of the lane in Kilve is open after an extenisve refurbishment and is under new management and is quite excellent. The Hood is very dog friendly. There is also the Plough Inn at Holford which is a mile and a half away and is a very pretty walk through the woods and it is also dog friendly. The village shop/post office at the end of the lane is quite excellent.
Yes we do but please let us know in advance of your stay if you need them.

Yes the kitchen has hopefully pretty much everything you are ever likely to need including Kenwoods, slow cookers cake tins, plenty of oven to tableware dishes and masses of roasting tins.

Yes the cottage has off road parking spaces, and yes there is plenty of room per cottage to park multiple cars.
