Take Pet Friendly Holidays in Dorset with Darwin Escapes
Dorset is a fantastic part of the UK to visit if you are looking for pet friendly breaks, with a range of scenic walking routes and pet friendly attractions.
With this in mind, Darwin Escapes have aimed to provide as much choice for pet owners as possible when it comes to finding pet and dog friendly holidays in Dorset, with two very different resorts to choose from. Take a look at what we have on offer to find the location which would work best for you and your animal.
Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park
Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park is one of the best dog friendly caravan parks in Dorset, with something for everyone both on and off the park. We have designed our static caravans to be pet friendly, and they are equipped with everything you will need for the ultimate self catering holiday in Dorset with beautiful and comfortable furnishings.
On park we have a range of facilities including a heated indoor swimming pool and fully equipped gymnasium for those who like to keep in shape. We also have a daily activity programme which is packed full with activities such as indoor bowls, snorkelling, water walkerz and much more.
We also have more sedate family friendly activities available in our club house, with both day time and evening entertainment schedules. Activities including darts competitions, movie nights, and child focused activities during the day which are run by our very own Charlie Bear.
If you are feeling peckish, there is no need to go off park for eating with our aptly named ‘View’ restaurant which has stunning views of the Swanage coastline. There is also a Bar on site which offers Sky Sports coverage and Xbox’s to take advantage of throughout the day.
There is also plenty to do in the area around the Swanage Bay View for your pet. The holiday park is ideally located within easy reach of various coastal walking routes and dogs will relish the stunning golden beaches of Swanage which are just waiting to be explored.
There are plenty of other beaches in the region too which are all highly rated and offer stunning sights of this wonderful part of the UK. This includes the stunning Studland sand dunes which are now owned by the National Trust. While your dog is busy enjoying himself, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and take in the wildlife around this region.
Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat
For something a little more luxurious, you may want to consider the gorgeous holiday lodges on offer at Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat. This resort is all about extravagance with a tranquil forested backdrop. We have a number of pet friendly lodges available at this resort, some of which come with their own private hot tubs in order to ensure that the humans of the group enjoy themselves just as much as their furry companions.
The lodges are equipped with everything you will need for self catering, with full kitchen facilities and a range of utensils and dishes. All that we need our holiday makers to bring with them is the food supplies because we’ve got everything else covered. Your entertainment needs are also meet with a full package of goodies including Wi-Fi access and Freeview enabled TVs. All of this is brought to you in style, with sophisticated yet functional furnishings and décor.
You are also unlikely to run out of things to do in the area around our resort, with easy access to a plethora of walking routes and pet friendly attractions making it a great location for dog friendly holidays in Dorset. One of the top attractions that will appeal to the whole family is Award Winning Dinosaur Museum in Dorchester where there are life size reconstructions of dinosaurs which have been made using real fossils and skeletons. Kids will love seeing a real life T-Rex, while dogs are welcome so long as they are on a lead.
We would also recommend taking a trip to Lulworth Cove which is a world heritage site that attracts over half a million visitors every year. It offers stunning scenery of the Jurassic coastal region and really is a must see destination. You can really explore this region along the scenic coastal paths which stretch across this region, and pets are sure to enjoy themselves just as much as their owners in this beautiful region.
