Frequently Asked Questions
Can’t see your question answered here?
Am I allowed to leave my dog(s) unattended in my unit?
Unfortunately, we do not allow dogs to be left unattended in your unit as it can cause disturbance to other campers.
Also, due to the heat that can be generated in the unit, it is also unfair to the dog. But it is worth noting that Woolacombe Bay is a dog friendly beach and at certain times of the year has some restrictions. We have attached a list of some of the dog friendly beaches in North Devon.
