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 friend 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.
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, 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!
Lakeland Motor Museum
With more than 30,000 exhibits, it’s easy to while an entire day away at Lakeland Motor Museum.
Minutes from Lake Windermere in the Leven Valley, this museum is home to more than 100 classic cars and motorbikes – some of which you won’t find anywhere else in the UK.
Bring the kids along to the Bluebird Exhibition – a bewitching display of Bluebird land and water vehicles – or open their minds to the Women’s Land Army Display, which highlights the inspiring role of women in engineering.
If your pup is happiest running free, you can take them for a lovely stroll along the Riverside Terrace and Walk which runs adjacent to the museum.
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.
Take a tour of the museum’s manor houses, cottages, photography studios and iconic roundhouse, or pop into the museum’s farm, complete with three Middle White pigs, three Manx Loughtan sheep and three breed chickens. Dogs will love gallivanting around in all this space!
We have 33 dog-friendly Haven parks across the UK: from Scotland to Cornwall. We can’t wait to welcome you and your pooch!
