Glamping With Dogs

Glamping with Dogs in the UK


Written by: Sarah Burgess

Exploring the wild with your dog at your side is an absolute joy, but finding a place where they’re welcome to stay can often be tricky. Unique Hideaways, the specialist glamping holiday provider, have personally inspected incredible shepherd huts, cabins, yurts, safari tents and more across the UK, making sure that you and your dog will both have an amazing adventure in the great outdoors.

Unique Hideaways will be joining us for a Facebook live talking dog friendly glamping and staycations in the UK. Tune in to the Orvis UK Facebook page at 12pm on Wednesday 4th August.

Here’s the Orvis pick of the best glamping staycations for you and your pup: 

The Little Cider House, Near Fowey

Simply perfect in every way, The Little Cider House has been lovingly hand-crafted to combine comfort, style and quality, all wrapped up in the most idyllic of hideaways. Whether you are looking for a family getaway or romantic retreat, your search ends here – and of course your dog is welcome to join you.

Syddyn Cowshed, Near Burry Port

Get away from it all and escape the bustle of the everyday at the truly wonderful rustic retreat, Syddyn Fach. A charming, dog-friendly barn conversion sleeping two, this glamping holiday will certainly be a memorable one. As a former milking parlour, Syddyn Fach has a fascinating history and has been lovingly restored.

Bearfoot Woody, Near Mullion Cornwall

Ever wanted to live your life as though you were in a magazine shoot? Well, a stay at Woody will make you feel as though you were glamping it up in the pages of your favourite interiors glossy. So cool it’s practically frozen (except that it’s actually roasty-toasty warm inside all year round), this to-die-for luxury camping destination has it all: old-meets new furnishings, fur throws, luxury bedding, designer chairs, distressed timber, hide rugs, corrugated metal, even a wood-burning range for your pup to curl up in front of… It’s an eclectic mash-up of vintage-meets-industrial-chic with a bit of Scandi-rustic thrown in for good measure.

Hayley’s Hut, Near Bideford

Beautiful views of the rolling fields of north Devon are just the start of a glorious getaway at Hayley’s Hut. Its sheltered location, in a copse of trees by a serene lake, ensures privacy and quiet – a place for you to unwind and recharge, miles away from day-to-day concerns. Add to that an awesome hot tub, where you can relax with a glass of bubbly while gazing up at the night sky (no light pollution here!), an outdoor kitchen – lovingly built by the owner using reclaimed wood from the farm and complete with a sofa, solid fuel Rayburn (for cooking, toasting marshmallows and warmth) and bar stools looking out onto the rural surroundings – and a fab fire-pit for cooking al fresco – and you’ve got yourself a heavenly setting. Hayley’s Hut is set on a working dairy farm, so pull on your wellies and enjoy the experience of the muck and mud of the barns, the farm and the surrounding areas, especially in the winter. Driving to the hut leads you through the heart of the farm, so you’ll meet Bruce, the cute little farm dog and see the cows up close and personal when they’re waiting to be milked.

Mount Lookout, Near Penzance

From a perch high above Mounts Bay, Mount Lookout enjoys a unique vista, sweeping from the Lizard peninsula in the east to the pretty fishing village of Mousehole in the west, via the jewel in the crown: St Michael’s Mount, a unique tidal island that’s the stuff of myth and legend. Picture yourself enjoying a lazy breakfast on the deck while watching seagulls wheel and boats bob, or sipping a sundowner as the stars appear one by one in the huge night sky. The dog walks in this area are breath taking and guaranteed to tire out even the most energetic of dogs!

Make sure you tune in to the Unique Hideaways Facebook Live at 12pm on 4th August to find out even more about dog friendly glamping stays in the UK.
