The park primarily caters for touring and tents with a large variety of pitches available to suit all sizes of vehicle and also offers Caravan Holiday Homes, Wigwams and even ‘bijou’ Shepherd Huts to hire with a minimum 2 night stay and is ideal for city breaks or just passing through. Pets and groups are also welcome. 

Dogs Go Glamping!

Dogs Go Glamping!

Brits love dogs - it’s a fact. Now four-legged friends are being invited on dog-friendly glamping breaks with their owners at Dog Days Holidays in South Wales for their own little bit of luxury.

Sue and Roger Edwards set up Raven’s Retreat, a glamping shepherd hut retreat for people with dogs, two years ago as their Dog Days Holidays accommodation.

Sue says: ‘Glamping was an option to give everyone, dogs included, an outdoor break with a great deal of comfort, which is why we decided to have dog-friendly facilities both inside and attached to the accommodation. Living in Powys, where there are more sheep than people, it seemed appropriate to choose a shepherd’s hut!’

NORTH Devon’s Heritage Coast has yet to receive the recognition it deserves according to Chris Hall co-owner of the family-run Golden Bay Holiday Village in the heart of Westward Ho!* (February, 2018).

Following 15 years in stationery in Leicestershire, Chris and his wife, Mary and their two children, Amy and Alex settled by the breath-taking North Devon coastline and took on the holiday village in 2015. 

Chris says: “This area of Devon and its amazing seascape is often overlooked by visitors preferring to go on into Cornwall, but it’s a great place full of hidden gems and somewhere off the beaten track to explore.
