    Taking Your Dog on Your Camping Holiday To Brean

    • You don’t have to go to the expense and have the worry of leaving your dog in kennels or with someone to look after while you’re away.
    • Your dog can be part of the happy memories you make together.
    • If you’re on holiday with the kids, they can have their beloved pet with them, which can make the holiday all the more enjoyable.

    Dog-Friendly Campsite In Somerset – With An Important Difference

    Not only do we welcome dogs here at our Brean Sands holiday park, but we’ve even laid-on something a bit special to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible for our guests to take their dogs on really enjoyable scenic walks, taking in the beauty of the Somerset countryside, and being able to enjoy a rest along the way.

    We have a dedicated dog walk adjacent to the pond and yellow field (dogs must be kept on a lead). This walk continues on towards that most prominent local landmark and beauty spot, Brent Knoll, by crossing the small road through town and picking up the bridleway.
    As a welcome rest stop for you and your dog, we also have a dog-friendly café (Coast Café) situated at Brean Leisure Park.

    Understanding Campsite Policies

    Before you book, familiarise yourself with the campsite's dog policies to ensure they match your needs. Some of our policies include lead policies, waste disposal protocols, any additional charges for pets and restrictions on dog breeds.
    We are committed to ensuring a safe environment for all our guests and pets. We also have a fair policy regarding the number of dogs permitted per pitch to maintain a balanced and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone. For specific details on our pet policies, we encourage you to visit our website or contact our team directly.
