Dog Friendly Things to do in Dorset with Your 4 Legged Friend


Dorset is a fantastic place for dog friendly holidays. With endless opportunities for walks as well as beaches, attractions and pubs, the whole family will have a fun-filled and relaxing getaway.

We’re extremely proud of our pet friendly holiday parks which make it possible for you to take a holiday with the whole family. There’s no need to book kennels or arrange a pet-sitter when you holiday with us and, with such incredible surroundings, you certainly don’t have to compromise for the sake of your pet!

Here are some of best things to do in Dorset during your dog friendly holidays this year…

Dog friendly beaches

The beach has something for every dog. Whether your furry friend loves digging in the sand, barking at the waves, joining you while you sunbathe or running laps of the beach: the seaside is the perfect spot for dogs and their owners.

Fortunately, there are lots of dog friendly beaches in the county and plenty within easy reach of all Waterside Holiday Parks. Remember to always double check before you visit as some locations allow seasonal access or only allow dogs in certain areas and some require them to be on leads.

Our favourite nearby beaches for your dog friendly holidays Dorset include:

Dog friendly visitor attractions

You will discover that there are plenty of fantastic nearby walks during your dog friendly caravan holidays with us. However, there is much more on offer in Dorset that we’re sure you’d like to discover. Fortunately, you’re not limited because you’ve brought your pet.  

Many great local attractions welcome dogs and we’ve shortlisted a selection of the best. Wherever you go, make sure you check to see if dogs must be kept on a lead or if there are any other restrictions before you visit:

Dog friendly pubs

Although you will have all the appliances and equipment you’ll need for self-catering during your dog friendly caravan holidays with us, it’s likely you’ll want to head out for a drink or a bite to eat elsewhere. Dorset has a great range of lovely pubs and many of them are happy for you to bring your pet along.   

These wonderful local pubs are all close to Waterside Holiday Parks and offer a warm welcome to dogs:
