We want to make the forest and camping accessible for all, so why shouldn’t man’s best friend enjoy them as well? No need for sad puppy eyes here – all but two of our sites are dog friendly campsites.

You can bring up to three dogs per pitch and enjoy the company of your best friend all holiday no questions asked (aside from “where’s your lead?”). 

Many of our sites also provide larger open fields for you to exercise your dogs (or for them to exercise you), and even more walking opportunities in the forests themselves. This makes them great settings if you want to holiday along with your pooch, and your dog will love you all the more for it.

As most of our sites are dog friendly campsite, we’ve compiled a list of the top four campsites for dogs, as chosen by previous campers.

Five of our dog friendly campsites
