We have two stunning pet friendly holiday parks in the region at Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa and Bath Mill Lodge Retreat.

Both of these resorts have been graded as being up to a 5 star standard by Visit England, so you can rest assured that you will be enjoying the best possible accommodation and on-site facilities no matter which destination you choose.

Cheddar Woods is within easy walking reach of iconic landmark Cheddar Gorge and also Cheddar Reservoir; both of which offer scenic walking routes which will prove popular with both pets and their owners. Bath Mill meanwhile is situated just over a mile outside of Bath city centre with a fantastic walking route available directly into the city alongside the Newton Brook. Read on to learn more about these two 5 star holiday resorts and what the Somerset region has to offer you and your pet.


Bath Mill Lodge Retreat

Bath Mill Lodge Retreat has recently been re-opened after a major redevelopment which has been carried out by Darwin Escapes. This has helped turn this previously tired looking holiday resort into a must visit holiday location, with its own high quality restaurant on park in a renovated 350 year old mill.

This resort offers the perfect alternative to a Bath City break, being just over two miles outside of Bath City centre in the middle of the countryside. This means that holiday makers can relax away from the hustle of bustle of city life in the evenings but still enjoy the many attractions that Bath has to offer in the day.

Our lodges are exquisitely prepared with modern but comfortable furnishings and high end equipment including fully fitted kitchens, flat screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access for luxurious self catering breaks in Bath. We also offer a range of holiday lodge sizes, with one to four bedroom alternatives available depending on the number of people staying and the amount of room you feel you will need for your pets.

There is a stream which runs past the holiday park directly into Bath City Centre. This short scenic walk is sure to prove popular with both pets and their owners, leading directly to the many attractions which Bath has to offer. Including the Jane Austen museum, the magnificent Bath Abbey and of course the famous Roman Baths.

Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa

Another luxurious 5 star gold rated holiday park in Somerset is the beautiful Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa which is a great location for pet friendly holidays in Somerset. This resort won the ‘Best in Britain’ title at the 2014 Hoseason Awards and really must be seen to be believed.

This park was redeveloped in 2013 to bring it up to its current impeccable standards with a range of lodges available to meet a range of booking sizes and budgets. As with Bath Mill Lodge Retreat, each lodge is impeccably prepared with a range of luxuries and equipment so you can enjoy the ultimate self catered holiday in Somerset.

The resort itself is also well maintained so that it blends in with the natural surroundings. We have a range of facilities available including an indoor swimming pool, gymnasium and our tranquil Eden Spa. We also have a well stocked bar and restaurant which serves a range of mouth watering meals, so there really is no need to go off park.

Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa is a stones throw away from the gorgeous Cheddar Gorge. Dog owners may be interested to hear that there is a three mile walking path up to the top of the Lookout Tower at the Gorge, which offers stunning views of the surrounding regions. There is also a scenic walk to be taken advantage of at Cheddar Reservoir which is adjacent to the holiday resort.

This is just a small sample of the pet friendly locations waiting to be explored near our stunning Somerset resort.
