I'm looking for somewhere for Easter that will take 2 dogs and that isn't too pricey, AND where dogs can swim (our youngest dog loves the water).

We have a campervan, 2 adults + awning and would like EHU.

Areas we'd consider:
Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Forest of Dean/Gloucestershire, Hereford, Oxfordshire.

Thank you

Try West End Farm in WEston or campsites near Brean. Not far to the beach however due to the very sloping beach it will be more of a paddle than a swim. Probably better a site with a river nearby, but rivers could be fast flowing so not something we would entertain.

Not in the South, however, Fforest Fields has a man-made lake which is great for dogs that love water - my old dog loved it there!

Fforest Fields, Builth Wells

The Salcombe (South Devon) area is lovely and your dog could swim at Thurleston Sands, but not sure about summer beach dog bans, so near a river may be better?

Yes, I've been looking at Fforest Fields but probably not for the Easter break though.

Thank you.

Brean and WSM have one of the highest tidal ranges and often gets very muddy. And for those reasons I wouldn't let her swim there. I'm sure we'll find something.

Thank you, I'll take a look to see if anything suitable pops up.

I'll have to check that out. We've always stayed at Isle of Avalon if going to Glastonbury as they're quite a bit cheaper. But if it's just for a weekend that would be ideal once the warmer weather arrives ....

There’s a list on line of 76 beaches in Devon where dogs are allowed. Choose campsites nearby.
