When planning their family holiday many families are faced with the dilemma of what to do with their four legged friends. There aren’t many dog friendly holidays around. However Haven holidays have the welcome mat out for dog owners and with a supplement of just £40 per dog per week, £20 for a shorter break, it works out a lot cheaper than kennels! So don’t leave them behind find room in the boot for their bed, bowl and lead and head to the seaside.
Haven parks have plenty of open spaces for both kids and dogs to run around and great seaside locations offering coastal walks and nearby countryside to explore.
Although it’s worth bearing in mind that some beaches don’t allow dogs during the main summer season you can still take them on cliff top walks.
Havens 35 locations are all around the coast so you can stay at Devon Cliffs and walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs along the Jurassic coast. Or they have two parks in Somerset where you can check out the walks on offer along the Cheddar Gorge. Cornwall has the longest coastline in Britain and Perran and Riviere sands holiday parks are ideally located to explore the many ancient paths. Moving further north Scotland’s rugged coastline has rich pickings for great walks and castles and Haven have a park on the East and one on the West.
But let’s not forget going inland a bit and the Lake District and the many mountains and lakes which one imagines will be full and glistening now and there’s nothing quite like climbing a mountain and discovering a lake so far above the ground.
But whether you’re walking up mountains or along the cliff tops the best bit about being up high are the stunning views your family and your dog will be rewarded with.
So where would you prefer to be? Pounding the pavement or treading in the footsteps of dinosaurs?
Pets are welcome in Standard accommodation and prices start from £269 for a three night break based on a family of up to six people and their dog at selected parks on 27 July.
