Somerset has a great range of holiday parks but not all are dog friendly and even when they are, they are not always near a dog friendly beach. Have a look at our suggestions for dog friendly holiday parks in Somerset and if you think we have missed one, please let us know. Somerset is a beautiful county with some fantastic walks, there are several reservoirs that offer really great dog walks as well.

There are several dog friendly beaches but check before you go because some beaches do have year round dog bans.

Cheddar, Somerset

If you are bringing your dog on holiday to Somerset, one of your main priorities is places to visit and exercising your dog. As the top outdoor tourist destination in Somerset is the iconic Cheddar Gorge, the Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa resort is really well worth a look. Not only does your dog get a great holiday, so do you as this is a high quality 5 star resort with fantastic facilities and in a great location for doggie based adventures and some great dog friendly caravan in Somerset.

If you want to go for a walk, there is a 3 mile walk at Cheddar Gorge, obviously this is not a flat walk though, tough on the way up, great on the way down. Even closer is Cheddar Reservoir, just a short walk from Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa. This man made reservoir offers a two mile flat walk where dogs are permitted on leads, a beautiful stroll in the mornings.

Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa currently offers pet friendly lodges with 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 people. The resort is high quality and the lodges have their own balconies with hot tubs, not for the dogs though. There is an indoor heated swimming pool and the Eden Spa for a day of pampering, an air conditioned gym, an active program of activities. These include sea scooters on the pool, laser clay shooting, archery, indoor entertainment area, two lane bowling alley and lots more to keep you entertained.

Watchet, Somerset

We chose Doniford Bay Holiday Park for similar reasons as for the Holiday Resort Unity but on a smaller and more intimate park, perfect for couples and young families that love a dog walk. We also chose it because it is literally a stone’s throw to the beach, you could throw a stone on the beach from some of the caravans. The beach is a mixture of pebbles and sand with the upper section being mostly sand so ideal for a dog walk and the views are stunning. This is a dog friendly beach all year around so you can come any time you wish to take a walk.

Again, Doniford Bay Holiday Park has some great facilities including an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool. There are a great range of activities as well including a fantastic climbing wall and a zip wire, a perfect holiday park if you like activities and there is also an entertainment centre. This is also a dog friendly holiday park and if you stay here, a visit to Dunster Castle is a must, it really is very interesting and educational.

Why Choose Doniford Bay Holiday Park for a Dog Friendly break in Somerset?
•    A medium sized park with great facilities, perfect for families.
•    Very close to Doniford Beach which is dog friendly all year round
•    Lots to see and do in the nearby area, Mine head to explore and much more.
•    A park that is very welcoming to your furry friends

Riverside Holiday Village is a short drive from Weston-Super-Mare and has been extensively refurbished and now offers a range of very high quality accommodation along with a new holiday lodge park. Whilst the beach is a short drive away, we chose the park because it has good quality facilities and is dog friendly with a dedicated dog walking field. Dogs must be kept on a lead when walking around the park as it is by the River Axe which is home to a range of wild birds including swans and geese. There is a fishing lake here and you can also fish on the River Axe so if you like a spot of course fishing and want a dog friendly holiday park in Somerset, this is an ideal choice.
