The Country Dog Hotel Home from Home Luxury Dog Hotel and Boarding near Taunton
Nestled in the heart of Somerset on top of the Quantock Hills, we are a family run business offering ‘home from home’ bespoke boarding for all types of dogs, living as one of the family with our dogs. We know too well the heartache of leaving our dogs when we go away……where will they go? We know how much we would want them to be looked after, walked, cuddled and loved and hopefully we can now offer our guests exactly this!
Our guests have access to all the comfiest places – sofas, chairs and laps are all at their disposal! The Country Dog Hotel offers the best holiday experience for your dog with our guests enjoying days filled with walks in the countryside, playing in the field, evenings in front of the log burner or AGA and nights spent sleeping soundly. We are very proud of our tailored service that offers an exclusive boutique escape for all pooches.

From Our Clients
We get so many lovely words from our clients. Here are a selected few:
Murphy had her first stay at the Country Dog Hotel this week. What a beautiful rural setting with every canine comfort you could imagine. A real home from home. Rebecca and Mike are the perfect hosts and clearly love and care for dogs in every shape and form. All aspects of Murphy’s routine and diet were carefully noted, giving us absolute confidence that she’d be well looked after. Daily updates and photos were fabulous! Murphy was clearly a very happy doggy and made lots of new friends. Would highly recommend to friends!
Just picked Marley our Weimaraner up from his first stay at The Country Dog Hotel. He has been there for 2 weeks & has been cared for amazingly. He is so relaxed & happy that he went straight to his bed when we got him home & has been fast asleep ever since. All those long walks on the Quantocks have really tired him out. Becky & family really love what they do & it shows. Thank you so much for looking after our special lad. See you next month. Joan, Tony & Marley
Can’t thank Mike & Becky enough. Finn stayed with them for 12 nights and had a wonderful time. Mike took him out running everyday and kept us informed via Instagram and Facebook with great pictures and video clips, which really gave us peace of mind. Finn came home happy and very tired. We would definitley be taking him back for another holiday to this wonderful hotel. First class in every way. #happytiredworkingcockerspaniel
Wow what a superb place, have just collected Tio from the Country Dog Hotel and cannot even think of the words to describe this wonderful place. Rebecca and Mike are both professional, friendly and totally devoted to the needs of their guests whilst keeping their owners updated with their antics. Tio even had a birthday cake made for him!! Thank you a thousand times.

A really lovely, relaxed and knowledgeable family home to send your dog. Our sprocker spaniel would have been miserable in a kennel and I wouldn’t have enjoyed our holiday knowing this. Becky and Mike are SO nice and Finley settled in really well…and knowing he was happy and enjoying himself was just great :-)Becky has so much experience with dogs, I knew he was being well looked after. Thank you!
This is a very long overdue review of the Country dog hotel as Theo, our 4 year old cockapoo has been a returning guest there several times in the last couple of years. Previous to finding Becky and Mike and their gorgeous canine home from home we had always been very anxious about leaving our precious little one with anyone other than family. Not any more! All our anxieties disappeared as soon as we arrived at the hotel for the first time and from then on Theo has been treated totally as part of the family and is always really excited to arrive there when we drop him off.
Becky and Mike have worked incredibly hard to build their super business and their friendly yet very professional approach is really evident from the initial enquiry we first made with them and then through to check in and check out. All the appropriate checks for up to date vaccinations, vets details and special dietary requirements were discussed and checked and on the first visit we were even asked where Theo likes to sleep so he could be accommodated with all the same creature comforts he’s used to at home….. the fabulous house, gardens and fields are all set up to make sure that their guests have a totally safe and secure environment to enjoy.
While Theo is staying at the hotel we’re kept up to date with lovely photos and even the occasional little video clip which is such an appreciated touch as they understand how much we miss him but when we know how busy they always are it really is going the extra mile.
We can’t recommend the Hotel highly enough and are so pleased to see Becky and Mike getting the recognition they so deserve for all their love and care towards Theo and all their four legged guests.
Darcey had a lovely weekend at The Country Dogs Hotel. She is a shattered but happy little dog having had lots of lovely walks across the fields and loads of attention. Thank you
My Cavie Louie has just returned home after spending 12days at the Country dog hotel. It is obvious he had a good time, and I suspect he would rather be there than home with us two oldies for company.
Rebecca and family are doing an amazing job looking after our loved pets, I have even had videos of Louie ruling the roost”
I wish them both all the luck in the world with their venture.
