    Pawesome Doggy Days Out in the UK

    Our pets are part of the family, so it doesn’t seem fair to leave them out of the fun. Luckily you don’t have to. There are plenty of dog-friendly activities across the UK to keep your furry friends entertained.

    Thinking of bringing pets on your next Haven holiday? You can rest assured there are plenty of pet-friendly activities near our parks. Take a look at our favourites, below!

    Greenwood Forest Park

    Voted the Best Family Attraction in North Wales for six years, Greenwood Forest Park is a destination which begs for exploration and is less than 40 minutes from Hafan Y Mor.

    Watch your children wonder at the UK’s first solar-powered water ride, and appease adrenaline junkies with a ride on the Green Dragon roller coaster – the first of its kind to be solely powered by people!

    Bring your pets along to watch the park’s thrilling live magic shows, or go for a wander with them along the BareFoot Trail. Just don’t forget to pack their lead!

    Windermere Lake Cruises

    Based in the heart of the Lake District and less than an hour from our Lakeland holiday park, Windermere Lake Cruises takes visitors – and their dogs – on a journey around England’s largest lake.

    Cruises last from 45 minutes to three hours, with the added option of buying a day ticket. If you would prefer to personalise your day out, why not hire your own row or motor boat instead?

    Each rental boat carries up to six people, making plenty of room for mum, dad, kids and, of course, your four-legged friend. Remember, on a Windermere Lake Cruise, dogs travel free of charge!

    Burton Agnes Hall

    Burton Agnes Hall is an Elizabethan stately home set in the picturesque market town of Driffield, East Yorkshire. Considered to be ‘the perfect English house’, this charming estate has sat atop sprawling countryside for more than four hundred years, and houses a treasure trove of art.

    French Impressionist painting and modern artwork take pride of place inside, whilst award-winning gardens circle the grounds. What’s more, dogs are welcome visitors, too!

    Ryedale Folk Museum

    This memorable museum takes visitors on a journey through time: from the Iron Age to the 1950s. Set over six acres, Ryedale Folk Museum comprises twenty buildings which are ripe for exploration.

    An hour’s drive from Reighton Sands, you can take a tour of the museum’s manor houses, cottages, photography studios and iconic roundhouse, or pop into the farm, complete with three Middle White pigs, three Manx Loughtan sheep and three breed chickens.

    Scarborough Castle

    There’s plenty of open space for dogs to run around the castle ruins of Scarborough Castle.

    Just a 20 minute drive from our Blue Dolphin holiday park, you and your four-legged friends can check out stunning panoramic views of the Yorkshire coastline, explore the grassy headland and have a much deserved rest on the picnic tables beside the Master Gunner’s House.

    A day fit for royalty!
