On my doorstep is a lovely place called Montacute House. It's an Elizabethan country house which is now owned by National Trust, and houses some beautiful paintings from London's National Portrait Gallery. The gardens are fabulous and extensive, and it's the perfect place for dog walking. Once you're outside the gardens, you're greeted by endless fields adorned with various livestock and this is where my dog Max becomes very happy as I let him off the lead. Montacute House itself is closed during the Winter, but from March, it awakens and there is a variety of things to see and do at the house - it has an orangery, tea rooms, a shop and lots of exhibitions.
