30 Dog Friendly Campsites in the UK for 2024

30 Dog Friendly Campsites in the UK for 2024

Are you looking for dog friendly campsites in the UK? Then this is the post you have been waiting for! Here are our BEST dog friendly campsites in the UK for 2024.

Vanlife with kids and a dog

So let me tell you a little bit about Otis and Us. We have camped with our children for many years, and loved glamping holidays and Eurocamp holidays before we decided to purchase a campervan. We purchased a panel van, and then set about our conversion.

We are a family of five and we love spending our weekends and holidays in our converted VW T5 Campervan. Vanlife with our kids is now a way of life, and over the years we have travelled around and found some super family friendly campsites in the UK.

We have collected many tips along the way. Before we travel, we make a packing list of all of our must have camper van essential items to make sure we don’t forget anything, and when space is tight, we manage with clever camper storage ideas and packing cubes to organise all of our clothes.

Our pick of the best dog friendly campsites, UK

Not content with trying to squeeze five into a campervan, we decided to add to our family and had a gorgeous golden retriever named Wilf. He comes everywhere with us and to be honest, if Wilf is not welcome, then quite simply we don’t visit. We are always on the look out for dog-friendly places to stay and dog-friendly days out and dog friendly campsites in the UK and have collated our favourite dog friendly UK campsites in this post. I have also split the campsites into regions to try to make it easier for you to find.

So without further ado – here are our BEST dog friendly campsites in the UK for 2024.
