How to keep your pet happy — at home or away in your caravan!


In association with Webbox logo

Taking your pet away on your holidays is one of the joys of owning a caravan. Keeping your pet happy keeps you happy too. What better way to keep them happy with good food and a good walk (...for your dog. Cats might not agree it’s a good idea).

Here’s our quick guide to great winter walks, places to stay and food they’ll love.

Best Winter Dog Walks

Crystal Palace Park, London

Crystal Palace Park is famous for its history, dating back to the nineteenth century; you can take a walk on the Italian terraces to enjoy the antiquity and views or stroll through the trees.

Dimmingsdale Valley & Furnace Forest, Staffordshire

If you haven’t yet visited Dimmingsdale with your dog, you’re missing out! If you’re looking to hide away from the heavier rainfalls during your walk, you can take shelter in one of the huts or enjoy a tasty snack in the dog-friendly restaurant!

Sticklebarn and the Langdales, Cumbria

This location is a favourite due to its variety of walking trails; to keep it short and sweet on rainy days, the Blea Tarn trail is the shortest walk. This stunning route leads through the forestry providing a little shelter from the rain.

Scarborough Castle, North Yorkshire

Scarborough Castle has the perfect surroundings for walks. But if the rain gets too much, your furry friend can still get their exercise by exploring the castle’s twelfth-century ruins.

Wells-Next-The-Sea Beach, Norfolk

If you don’t mind a bit of rain, why not take advantage of the beach to avoid the muddy locations? The Beach Café makes Wells-next-the-Sea Beach in Norfolk the pawfect place for a rainy walk.

Best Dog-friendly Sites

Stroud Hill Park, Cambridgeshire

Stroud Hill Park

An adult touring site in Pidley, Cambridgeshire for caravans, motorhomes and tents.

Hidden Valley Park, Devon

Hidden Valley Park, Devon

This site is tucked away in a wooded valley, close to Ilfracombe Harbour and Woolacombe Beach. There are miles of walks through the woodland and the five-acre field used for overflow camping is the perfect place to exercise pets. Dogs are allowed on most local beaches — and humans of course! Paddling is optional.
