Meet the UK's Most Dog Friendly Holiday Parks
By: Lovat Holiday Parks
50% of the holiday units – which includes luxury holiday homes, lodges, shepherds' huts, and fully furnished safari tents – are dog friendly, and four legged guests are greeted with a goodie bag on arrival! It contains treats, a ball, and some poop bags (you can never have too many, ask any dog owner!).
On the parks themselves, there are doggie 'stations' dotted around, with more treats, and dog showers for cleaning up mucky pups; some parks also have dog exercise and agility areas.
Lovat Holiday Parks also make days out for dog owners easy with lots of ideas for dog friendly places to go, dog friendly pubs, restaurants and the best local walks and beaches.
Here is a summary of Lovat's super dog-friendly holiday parks:
Green Hill Farm Holiday Village, Landford, New Forest: A pretty park with a fishing lake, in a lesser visited region of the New Forest, making it far quieter than other parts of the forest. Accommodation includes holiday homes, lodges, safari tents and shepherds' huts.
Sun Haven Holiday Park, Mawgan Porth, north Cornwall: Just a 20-minute walk down a shaded, car-free pretty path to the wide-open spaces of Mawgan Porth Beach – which is also dog friendly – and the pubs, shops, and restaurants. Accommodation includes holiday homes, lodges, and shepherds' huts.
Penmarlam Lodge Retreat near Fowey, Cornwall: A quiet park with just thirty units, and a 10-minute walk to The Old Ferry Inn and the ferry across the estuary to Fowey, a lively coastal village with a wide choice of pubs, shops, and restaurants. Accommodation is in lodges – some with hot tubs.
Padstow Holiday Village, north Cornwall: With direct access to Padstow through farm fields, this is the perfect park to explore 'Padstein', famous for its wide choice of restaurants (and they're not all Stein's, check out the Prawn on the Lawn!), many specialising in local produce. Accommodation is in holiday homes or lodges.
Parbola Holiday Park, Hayle, west Cornwall: A popular park set in woodland that has a heated outdoor swimming pool in the peak summer months. The park is near Gwithian Beach, and a short drive from some of the country's best known hotspots including St. Ives Farmers' Market, the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Halligan, and Tintagel Castle. Accommodation is available in holiday homes and safari tents.
