1. Oswestry - Cranberry Moss Camping & Caravan Site
Ideal for serious walkers, this site is located close to the border between Wales and Shropshire and is just one mile away from the Shropshire Way, a 297-mile route that takes in some of the most stunning views of the surrounding countryside. For the more casual walker, there is the Nesscliffe Country Park, or for those more interested in heritage sites, the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct, the Pistyll Rhaeder Waterfalls, and the world-famous Ironbridge Gorge are all nearby.
On-site there are two clearly marked dog walks, a grooming service, and most of the local pubs accept dogs too. The site offers both grass pitches and hardstanding with electricity hook-ups, and the facilities include a shower block and WCs. There is also a family shower room, a social club called ‘The Barn’ and a site shop.
2. Newquay – Hendra Holiday Park
The Hendra Holiday Park offers more than 700 pitches over 12 large fields and is set within a huge 80 acres of countryside, whilst also being located a mere mile away from the town of Newquay with its golden beaches. The site offers a plethora of facilities, and these include a bar, showers, a café, a restaurant, a supermarket and even a pizzeria for takeaways. For those looking for leisure facilities, there are plenty of options, with outdoor and indoor pools, playgrounds and outdoor fitness facilities.
For those with dogs, there are specific pitches for dog owners, and these are neatly positioned close to the designated dog-walking area, and the website handily lists the many pubs in Newquay that are dog friendly. The nearby beach of Fistral also has dog-friendly areas that can be used all through the year and is popular with families.
3. St. Austell – Heligan Caravan & Camping Park
This five-star rated campsite is set in a secluded small, landscaped garden that offers views of Mevagissey Bay, and is naturally sheltered by the woodlands belonging to the Heligan Estate, which is home to the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
The site allows up to two dogs per motorhome pitch and has both grass and hardstanding pitches and the facilities here include a toilet and shower block with wet room, a children’s play area, a shop and a laundrette. If you are looking to spend a day at the beach, the site is only two miles away from the coast and a number of dog-friendly beaches including Portmellon, Mevagissey, Hemmick, Portholland and Gorran Haven.
4. Whitby – Whitby Holiday Park
Occupying a clifftop location, the Whitby holiday park offers stunning views of the nearby coast and countryside. Robin Hood’s Bay, Saltwick Bay and the Cleveland Way coastal path are all nearby, with the latter two accessible from the park itself. Whitby Abbey is just a short stroll away, and there is a footpath that leads from the site to the beach below, which is dog friendly.
The majority of the pitches in this park are on grass, and have connections for electricity, although there are some hardstanding pitches available at the other side of the park, but despite being closer to the amenities, they don’t have the coastal views. The facilities on the site are plentiful with a recently refurbished bar that offers entertainment at peak times, a shop, a toilet block, a games room, a play area and a laundrette.
5. Swansea – Three Cliffs Bay Holiday Park
This award-winning family-run campsite offers some of the most breath-taking views of any coastal campsite in the UK. The site overlooks Three Cliffs Bay with its rocky terrain and golden sandy beaches. The beach here is dog friendly, and when the tide is low there is plenty of space for your dog to run around, and this amazing shoreline also has salt marshes, sand dunes and of course the three limestone cliffs that give this area its name.
The beach is within comfortable walking distance to the holiday park and is situated on the Wales Coastal Path. Amenities here include showers, a toilet block, a disabled room and a family room, and there are pitches with electrical hook-ups if needed. There is also a shop on-site, a coffee shop, and a farm shop that sells a wide range of local produce including dairy goods, bread and barbecue food.
