Dogs are family, and with a TentBox you never have to leave them behind. Whether they’re small enough to fit into your tent, or they happily sleep in the car, there’s loads of ways to travel with your pet.

And what great travel buddies they make! Dogs love exploring new places as much as we do, so taking them on your camping adventures is a great experience. If you’re looking for some of the best places to travel with your dog, here’s our pick of the top dog-friendly places to camp in the UK.

Old Oaks, Somerset

    Complete with a fenced off dog park and poo bags available at regular intervals, this camp site is ideal for dogs. If you’re looking for a 5* camping experience that offers a little bit of luxury, this is a great place to pitch up.

    Old Oaks is situated close to the town of Glastonbury, Old Oaks is ideally located for you to explore all that this magical region has to offer.

    Holland’s Wood, Brockenhurst

      Nestled amongst the exquisite oak wood forest, this campsite feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere. With so many amazing walks all around the New Forest, you’ll be spoilt for choice as you go exploring with your pup.

      The only thing to watch out for with this location is the amount of native New Forest ponies that roam freely. While most of them are very friendly and used to people, it’s recommended to keep your dog on a lead if you encounter them.

      The Meadows, Cornwall

        Cornwall is one of the most beautiful spots to explore with your dog. With lots of open space and plenty of ocean swim spots, your dog will love this part of the world.

        The Meadows is an adult-only, dog-friendly campsite that is located close to Mevagissey. The location itself is well secluded, set in the middle of a valley with woods on one side and a stream on the other. Blissful!

          If you want to enjoy dog-friendly camping in Scotland, this is a great location to immerse yourself in nature. Set beside the coast, this campsite is close to a bustling fishing village, which has a sandy beach, golf course and excellent pubs.

          The park is family run and good for golf fans, with fishing and boat trips available off the coast.
