Friday, 9 July 2021 | D for Dog
Looking to staycation with your pooch this summer? For many people, holidays just wouldn't be the same without a four-legged friend in tow. Or maybe due to current restrictions, this will be your first UK dog friendly holiday.
The most dog-friendly campsites have been revealed in a new study by Land Rover. They analysed thousands of campsites across the UK, ranking those with the best TripAdvisor reviews to uncover the best dog-friendly camp sites.
While countries are gradually making their way to the amber or green list, much of the world is still off-limits for when it comes to holidays, so why not plan a staycation with your dog.
Holidaying with your dog is always great fun and with so many options to choose from, a holiday to remember can still be had. But where is the best place to go camping?
Scampering up rolling hills or running along sandy shores, the choice is yours.
With huge stretches of coastline paths to discover, it is no surprise that the South-West of England dominates the top two pet-friendly UK holiday destinations. Five of the top ten spots are located in that part of the country with Cornwall, Devon and Bath and North East Somerset.
