As dog owner's we understand how important it is to ensure you can include your furry friend in all the family fun. That's why we are so great to holiday with! We have a variety of pet friendly accommodation, from caravans, cabin's, chalet's, bungalows so you can enjoy Woolacombe and its beautiful surroundings with your canine companion, right by your side. Or if camping and touring is your thing, we do that too!
As we are dog lovers, you and your furry friend will receive an extremely warm welcome from check in, all the way through your holiday to the very end when you check out.
Well-behaved furry friends are also welcome in our Clubhouse, all we ask is that they stay in the higher part of The Clubhouse and are kept on a lead at all times
We want your furry friend to enjoy their holiday just as much as you do so we have jam packed as much information as we can to help you plan your stay.
