Dog Friendly Beach Holidays In The South West

When we’re looking for staycations in the UK, I do try to look for dog friendly beach holidays as that way the whole family can enjoy the break. Dog friendly holidays are becoming more and more popular as we all want to take our pets away with us.

Living in the South West of the UK, we are blessed with some amazing beaches, and many of them are dog friendly. As we endeavour to see more of the UK, we are focusing our journey and short breaks on the South coast to reduce the travel time to start with.

There are some great dog friendly holidays by the sea in the UK, and I am excited to visit more of them. When travelling with your dog, we have found that dog friendly caravan parks are some of the best places to stay as we can keep the dog safe and contained in the caravan.
