Dog Friendly Holidays in Essex

Dog Friendly Holidays in Essex

Dog friendly holiday parks in Essex

One of the first counties that springs to mind when you think of a Great British holiday is Essex, and it’s one of the counties we couldn’t recommend highly enough for a dog friendly holiday. Want to feast on fish and chips? Are you craving candyfloss? This is the place to be. 

Our park at The Orchards is a fantastic addition to a region packed with bastions of British leisure. Within a very short walking distance you and your dog can experience the windswept coastline, the lush countryside and a quintessentially English village in the form of Brightlingsea. It’s so easy to forget you’re only an hour or so from London.

A dog friendly experience made complete by Haven

Bringing the dog to Essex with you is stress-free with Haven’s dog friendly guarantees. The county is full of places to bring your dog along to, with a huge variety of attractions both close to our park at The Orchards and further afield. A short hop across the regatta with your dog takes you to Brightlingsea, a picturesque coastal village epitomising the beauty this corner of England offers. Further inland, Colchester is a short ride away, a town that holds the title of Britain’s oldest. Before you leave, you must check out the dog friendly pier at Walton, an ideal place to pick up a seaside souvenir!
