Reviews from guests with dogs
"10/10!!! Perfect location, just ten minutes drive, in any direction takes you to the all 'big' villages & towns. The park itself, it's laid out nice, very easy to find your lodge again! The lodge itself was spotless, lovely comfy beds, warm bedding and plenty of towels and the kitchen was well stocked. The Haybarn and it's staff are excellent! Special thanks to them all. It was great being able to take the dog in, it really made our holiday! The food was gorgeous and value for money. We weren't expecting to eat out every night but we did! I honestly can't find fault!"
Sarah, Limefitt Holiday Park
"Wonderful five days in a lovely caravan with two dogs. Pleased to find we were along the back edge of the park with a gate to a footpath which led in both directions. We were up at 6.30 every morning to head the short walk to the dog friendly part of the sands. Will certainly be booking again in the future."
Rosemary, Camber Sands Holiday Park
"We were up for a week, had the best holiday, we had the dog with us and she loved the beach. There is also an amazing walk from the park into Nairn, so much to do, the kids loved it. Definitely going to go back."
Kevin, Nairn Lochloy Holiday Park

Discover our Woof Parks
We know our guests love treating their dogs to some fun on holiday too, that's why we've created Woof Parks at Newquay, Lizard Point, Warmwell, Sandford, Camber Sands, Cayton Bay and Ty Mawr.
These enclosed agility courses are designed specifically for dogs. Whether you want to do a few laps with your pooch, teach them new tricks or just allow them to socialise with other dogs - they're ideal for energetic dogs to burn off all that extra energy and holiday excitement.
Assistance dogs & other pets
Assistance dogs are exempt from additional charges and are welcome in all of our holiday parks and accommodation. Pets other than dogs may also be allowed on park, however, this is at the discretion of the management. If you do wish to bring a registered assistance dog, please inform us when booking. Supporting documentation to evidence that the dog is a registered assistance dog must be available for inspection prior to and during your holiday. If you aren’t able to show this, you will be charged the pet fee. If you have a query regarding your pet, don't hesitate to contact us prior to booking and our friendly team will be happy to help.
Travelling with your dog
We know travel can be stressful on your pets, especially if they're not used to car journeys or visiting new places. We've pulled together some handy tips and FAQs to make your first holiday with your dog relaxed and easy.
Before long car journeys
Fit in a good walk with your dog before you set off. It will burn off energy and encourage them to sleep in the car. It also gives them a chance to go to the bathroom.
On the road
Dogs get car sick too. Avoid feeding them rich food before hitting the road. If your dog is used to being crated, it's a good idea for them to travel in their crate, keeping them calm and safe.
Getting used to new surroundings
Unfamiliar places can make a dog feel anxious. Calm them down by laying out their favourite blanket and toys.
Dogs deserve a holiday, too
Don't just take our word for it. We teamed up with dog behaviour expert Graeme Hall, aka 'The Dogfather' to discover why dogs need a break just as much as their owners.
According to Graeme: “For dogs there’s nothing like a holiday to create a feeling of wellbeing. Dogs pick up on our moods, so spending time with them on holiday when we’re relaxed, helps them to relax too.”
