Campervan Hire And Holidaying With Your Four-Legged Friend – The Perfect Holiday
Britain is renowned as a country of dog owners, but we are also prone to enjoying a holiday as well, but sometimes these two passions do not always work well together. However, with a little ingenuity and some research, it is possible to have the best holiday ever whilst including your dog rather than leaving him or her in a kennel.

The Next Step Is To Plan Your Dog Focused Trip
If you plan on taking your dog with you on your holiday, then we are going to assume that you want to get out in nature and make the trip enjoyable for everyone. So we thought we would put together a list of some of the best destinations in the United Kingdom to walk your dog.
The Lake District
The Lake District is one of the most beautiful locations in the United Kingdom, and with stunning views, endless walks, lakes, valleys and hills, you and your dog will be spoilt with options.
In addition to endless walks, you can also step back in time to experience the wonderful Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway. The once-in-a-lifetime experience is dog-friendly, ensuring that both you and your four-legged friends will have an amazing experience.
The Northumberland Coast
Staying in the northern part of the country, but moving from greenery to beaches the Northumberland Coast has miles and miles of the most beautiful beaches. You can let your dog off the leash to experience the thrill of running along those beautiful beaches or splashing in the refreshing sea. Many dog walkers enjoy a walk from Bamburgh Castle to the beautiful little village of Seahouses.
With lots of interesting trails, and smells your dog is bound to have a wonderful time, and for us humans the scenery is breathtaking. Another advantage of visiting this area is that there are plenty of places to park your campervan for the night, to experience the true freedom of the campervan lifestyle.
The Peak District
It would be remiss of us to discuss the best places to take your dog in a campervan without mentioning the Peak District. Another area of natural beauty that is conducive to long relaxing walks that are perfect for your family and dog to enjoy. Feel the wind cleansing your mind, and washing all of your stress away. At the end of every walk whether it is to visit Kinder Scout, Chatsworth House, or Dovedale, you will end the day feeling tired but refreshed, exhilarated, and alive.
And of course an added advantage is the plethora of little country pubs you can visit as the day draws to a close, either for a drink or to experience the beautiful local fayre.
The Brecon Beacons
Continuing our theme of places to visit in a campervan, its time to change countries and look at what Wales has to offer. The Brecon Beacons is the place to visit if you love to enjoy the mesmerising effects of a waterfall. There is one particular walk, known as the Four Falls Trail, which encompasses a five mile circular route, which allows you to visit four of the most stunning waterfalls the country has to offer.
From the breathtaking plunge of the Henrhyd Falls which holds the honour of being the highest waterfall in Wales, to the slightly gentler but equally as beautiful Sgwd-y-Eira if water falls are your or your dogs thing, then this is the perfect option for you. In addition, to the beauties of the waterfalls, should any member of your family enjoy DC and Marvel, then another benefit of visiting Henrhyd Falls is that it was used as the exterior of the Batcave in The Dark Knight Rises.
The Scottish Highlands
Having mentioned both England and Wales, it’s time to pop north of the border and visit the Scottish Highlands. The Scottish Highlands offers hundreds of routes to explore and burn energy, with some of the most exhilarating climbs within the United Kingdom. The Highlands offer scenery and locations that cannot be matched by any other location in the United Kingdom. These include lush forests, moorlands and serene lochs. – You may even be lucky enough to see Nessie! although there is no telling what your dog would think of this if indeed that happened.
Scotland is also famous for its delicious food, and many of the places where you can experience this delicious food are also dog friendly. A good tip that we frequently hear from our customers who have visited Scotland is to visit the Crannog Seafood Restaurant which is located in Fort William, at the base of Ben Nevis. The food is fresh, and delicious and the staff are renowned for their friendly and welcoming demeanour.
Of course if you, your family and your dog are particularly energetic and sporty, you could always tackle Ben Nevis which is one of the most challenging but fun hikes within the United Kingdom.
