The UK’s top dog-friendly caravan parks

Family walking away from their motorhome with a dog

Nothing is better than getting away in your caravan or motorhome with the whole family and that includes your four-legged friends too.

Owning a leisure vehicle makes it easy to include your dog in your holiday plans, but it does mean finding the right caravan park to accommodate you.

The folks at caravan specialist Ropers Leisure have put together a list of dog-friendly sites to open up the possibility of more beach walks and trail adventures.

They used reviews, credibility checks and analysis of the facilities on offer to select the best parks to stay at with your trusty companion.

Weymouth Bay Holiday Park, Dorset

Located on the south coast, Weymouth Bay Holiday Park is one of the most dog-friendly sites in the UK, offering easy access to the Dorset countryside and amenities including a pool.

Just a ten-minute drive will take visitors into Weymouth itself and there’s a bus stop conveniently located right outside the caravan park.

Park Cliffe, Lake District

Dogs and their owners can set off from the Park Cliffe Caravan Site and head up the hill to take in wonderful vistas of the surrounding Lake District countryside.

While the region is home to a number of dog-friendly holiday parks, it’s the pet-orientated facilities and surroundings that really set it apart.

California Cliffs Holiday Park, Norfolk

Take advantage of the dog walking area on site at California Cliffs Holiday Park, as well as the nearby town of Scratby Beach.

While there are plenty of pitches for caravans at the park, there are also some dog-friendly chalets available for guests and their four-legged friends.

Orchards Holiday Park, Isle of Wight

Exploring the Isle of Wight’s many beaches with your dog is always a joy and after your pet’s perhaps taken a paddle in the sea you can return to the holiday park and swim in its pool.

Orchards Holiday Park has specific areas for dogs on site and is close to great trails perfect for “walkies”.

Vale of Pickering Caravan Park, Yorkshire

With your choice of the Yorkshire Moors and seaside resorts on its doorstep, the Vale of Pickering Caravan Park is a good dog-friendly option.

Most notably at this site is a huge dog walking area that has sweeping views of the surrounding landscape, making it a particularly enjoyable space to spend some off-lead time.

South Meadows Caravan Park, Northumberland

Situated on the edge of the village of Belford, which boasts a local pub where dogs are welcomed, South Meadows Caravan Park is a good base from which to discover Northumberland.

The spacious pitches and dedicated area to walk your dog mean you should all feel relaxed during a visit to this well landscaped park.
