Arlington Court

Scenically situated on the edge of Exmoor, Arlington Court is a picturesque property featuring a Regency house, a collection of horse-drawn vehicles in its Carriage Museum (including the 300-year-old gilded Speaker’s State Coach, currently on loan from the Houses of Parliament) and – most importantly for dog-owners and their four-legged friends, who are all very welcome – some extensive gardens and walks to enjoy.

The house was built in the 1820s as a family residence and boasts extensive collections of various childhood treasures, from toy ships to shells, but it is the trails that wind through and around the estate that will put a grin on the yin of your hound. There are four main walks and more than 20 miles of footpaths to explore, including the 2¾-mile Centenary Walk, which boasts stunning views over the property and parkland; the 1¾-mile Lake Walk, which takes you to the lake, via a bird hide and several bridges; the 5-mile Cott Brake Walk through ancient woodlands and parts of the area designated a wildlife reserve; and the 3-mile Deer Park Walk, where you can spot deer in their natural habitat.
