Why You Should Take Your Dog Glamping
There are loads of great reasons to go glamping with your dog. For starters, of course, there's the simple fact that no one likes leaving man's (or woman's) best friend at home – especially when you take into account the faff of finding kennels or someone to look after your pet for you. Then there's the joy of having the company of your dog while you're actually on your holiday. Waking up to your pooch beside you, spending the day walking on local footpaths or roaming on open beaches, while your dog runs wild. It's all part of the fun. It's for this reason that, sometimes, glamping in winter is just as appealing as glamping in the summer months. During peak school holiday season, popular locations like cornwall will often have lots of restrictions, which mean you cannot take your dog to the beach. Come winter time, however, and the rules become more relaxed. There's more space and no body's lying around sunbathing, so dogs can rule the roost once more. Hooray!
Dog-Friendly Glamping Accommodation: What's Right For You?
A dog’s joy at being let loose to play in a field is unparalleled, with exciting, places to discover and a chance to run themselves ragged. But when it comes to settling down for the night, there's no one single form of accommodation that is better than any other. In fact, when it comes to glamping, there is a wide range of accommodation out there, with the choices growing and growing every single year. Not all glamping sites will actually allow your dog inside your accommodation. Some will provide a small kennel alongside. However, at most it will be a proper sleep-at-the-foot-of-the-bed job, where your pooch is very much a part of the proverbial furniture. Here at Cool Camping we've found bell tents to bark from and paw-friendly pods that are open all year round. So, whatever you're after, there'll be a glamping site to suit. Generally speaking, it's best to begin by considering how much you are willing to spend on your glamping holiday and also the time of year you expect to be travelling. If you're glamping in summer, large, family-sized safari tents are always a popular option, with different rooms and a veranda outside where you and your pet can soak up the sun. In winter, however, it's best to look for something better insulated. Shepherd's huts are a wonderfully romantic option – your mutt can play sheepdog for the weekend, while you enjoy evenings huddled around the wood-burner – and gypsy caravans also have a similar feel. Not every form of accommodation can be pin-holed under a specific title however. We've found converted London buses, ingeniously up-cycled shipping containers and leafy treehouses that'll have your dog howling at the moon. Whatever accommodation gets your tail wagging, you'll find it here on the Cool Camping website.

Dog-friendly Glamping in France & Europe
Thinking of going glamping in France? We don't put down our chew toy and curl up in bed when exploring the UK is over. Oh no. We've also been out on the road – head out the window, panting in the breeze – exploring the rest of Europe, with heaps of options across the channel where your dog is also allowed. Flights, ferries, high-speed passenger trains and tunnels for your car, there are more ways than ever to get across the water to France and mainland Europe and nowadays taking your pet with you is super easy too. Provided you have a pet passport and the required vaccinations, you can now travel to mainland Europe with a minimal amount of hassle and the upshot is easy holidays abroad with your dog. We love it and our pets love it too. We've been to France plenty of times before and members of the Cool Camping team have also been glamping in Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Austria and more.

So take a browse and find the location that you and your four-legged friend will love. Who knows what glamping adventure awaits?
Dog Breeds: Which Breeds Are Allowed?
The vast majority of dog-friendly glamping sites we recommend will allow all legal UK breeds of dog. There is, however, the occasional exception, as some glamping site owners choose to restrict certain breeds such as rottweilers, bull dogs and other short-noses breeds. Where possible we have always specified that this is the case under the Who's In? heading but, if you have any doubts about whether your breed of dog is accepted, then we recommend contacting the glamping business directly and asking for further details. All the glamping sites we recommend have had our personal approval and we know that the folks there are friendly and helpful. So just give them a shout and ask them for further information if it's required, they'll always be happy to let you know.
Final Things To Remember
Don't forget to pack...
– Collar (with your contact details clearly printed)
– Lead (especially at glamping sites where dogs must be kept on leads at all times)
– Dog-waste bags (you can dispose of these in the specific bins that glamping sites provide)
– Dog bowl
– An old towel
– A dog tent (if needed), travel cage or your dog's favourite old blanket
– Extra energy for all those walks!
