When it comes to booking a family getaway, you want to ensure that the whole family can be accommodated for. Regardless of whether your family members have two or four legs. At Allens Caravans you will find a holiday park that will welcome in your furry friends with open arms because we love dogs!
For many families, finding dog-friendly caravan holidays is one of the most important parts of booking the annual getaway. Dogs are our best friends and, in the United Kingdom, it is estimated that 12 million households have pets with a population of nine million dogs (figures as per the RSPCA). That just shows how much we love our pooches.
Unlike cats, who are happy as long as they have food and water in their bowl, dogs need a lot of love and affection. When cat owners go away for a few days, they are likely to ask a family member or trusted friend to pop in and fill up their food and water bowl. Dog owners, however, know that this simply isn’t a choice and the options are to either payout for a stay at kennels, ask a friend or family member to take them in while they are away or bring them along. As much of a member of the family as anyone standing on two feet, many choose to bring their dog along with them – and why not?!
Dog-Friendly Caravan Holidays at Allens Caravans
Allens Caravans operates four hire and touring parks across England and Wales, all of which welcome pets on site. These four parks are:
This means that your pet will be able to come and stay with you on our park and inside your static caravan. It is recommended that you ask the team who look after a specific park about the facilities on site. As not all are pet-friendly, but you will be welcome to walk your dog around the holiday park.
We understand how important it is for many of our guests to be able to experience their holiday with all their loved ones, which includes the faithful family pet. Dogs are as much a part of the family as anyone else, which is why we are proud to offer pet-friendly stays. Ensuring you don’t have to feel guilty about leaving your pooch with someone else.
Kennel fees can be expensive which means that you have to factor those into your holiday budget; unless you have a friend or family member who doesn’t mind looking after them for a few days. However, some dogs do not contend well with both a change of scenery and staying with a stranger, much preferring to remain by their owner’s side. Remember, they have no idea what is going on so when they are sent away somewhere, they may not realise that you will be coming back for them.
Scenic Long Walks Your Dog Will Love
All our holiday parks can be found in beautiful scenic locations, either set amongst stunning countryside or with a view of the beach. Wherever you stay, you will be able to take full advantage of long walks that you and your furry friend can explore.
Our holiday parks can be found in Worcestershire and North Wales, two of the UK’s most scenic locations. You can explore acres of the beautiful British countryside. Or, if you are staying at either of our Welsh sites, take a morning stroll along the beach and enjoy the fresh air that is certain to wake you up in the morning.
Our Worcestershire parks are just a stone’s throw away from the historic towns of Worcester and Stratford-upon-Avon, meaning you can tie in a day trip with your furry friend exploring these popular tourist locations. Additionally, you will not be far away from the Cotswolds if you are willing to take the drive from either of the parks. With good traffic, you can get to the Cotswolds from The Springs in under an hour by car via the A429.
Why Dog-Friendly Caravan Holidays are Popular
The reason why dog-friendly caravan holidays are popular is that it saves the hassle of having to be without, let’s be honest, your favourite member of the family. Waking up without the pooch jumping on the bed for its morning cuddles just isn’t the same. It makes you feel more at home and that is exactly how we want our guests to feel when they book a stay with us. Do not think of your static caravan as mere accommodation, but more as your home away from home.
Anyone who has a dog understands that love between pet and owner. It’s not the same as asking someone to pop in and feed the fishes for a week, because your dog is thoroughly dependent and reliant on you. To them, you are their entire world and no doubt, they make up a large portion of yours.
Dogs are the perfect companions and make for a great conversation starter. Even if you are shy and retiring when with new people, they are likely to go up and introduce themselves to whomever they please! Our holiday parks are great for meeting and making new friends, so if you are worried about how to start meeting others, a pooch makes for a fantastic icebreaker!
