We are ideally located on the edge of the Mendip Hills (an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) with easy access to the many delights that Somerset has to offer. Whether you want to revisit history in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, hike in the magnificent Cheddar Gorge, attend one of the many events at The Royal Bath and West Showground or just enjoy a day walking in the beautiful surrounding countryside, Somerset has something for everyone! Our 3 en-suite rooms, The Garden Room, The Hayloft and The Granary (all dog friendly), have been thoughtfully decorated and furnished with our guests in mind. Comfy beds with quality linens, locally made pine furniture, antique finds and all those luxurious little extras that you deserve. Home baked cakes or biscuits await you in your room. Fresh milk for your selection of teas and coffee can be found in the silent mini fridge together with bottled water. There’s adequate space in your fridge as well for any of the abundance of locally sourced goodies that you might pick up from one of the local Farmers’ markets that can be found all over the county. Every pup staying will be treated to a Pup Pack in their room. Our bountiful, traditional farmhouse breakfast, using locally sourced produce, whenever possible, is served in our very special 17th century beamed dining room. Take your time and enjoy – there’s no rush. We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Stables very soon. Alyson, Simon and Jasper the Golden Retriever

The Old Stables is so dedicated to their doggy guests! They've thought of everything, from a secure dog field to a pup pack for every dog that stays. They are genuinely the best dog-friendly hotel I've ever stayed at.

Best hosts, amazing breakfast and cutest Jasper, who very kindly shares his toys with others. We are going back for our third time in couple of weeks!
