Oscar’s Favourite Dog Friendly Places to go in Somerset
17th Jun 2016

Explore Somerset while staying at one of the finest dog friendly hotels in Somerset…


If you didn’t already know, here at Ston Easton Park we pride ourselves on our dog friendly nature. We just simply love dogs (and their owners too, of course). For many years now, we’ve been known as one of the most prestigious dog friendly hotels near Bristol, and more recently in the South West region. As a matter of fact (we think) you could count the number of luxury dog friendly hotels in Somerset on one hand – maybe even one finger (yes, just us!).

Another interesting thing you might not know is who Oscar is; he’s our incredibly handsome hotel dog. Recently he’s been a very busy pup and has taken some time out to explore the county in a bid to help his fellow canine counterparts and their owners find dog friendly thing to do in Somerset this summer.
