The most blissful experience for the dog owner can be to relax on your holidays knowing your pooch is having the time of his life and what better way to do it as to be right by your side!
One of our truly pawtastic weekends was spent at "Oskada park" campsite in Malton, UK or as my furry friends would call it "doggy heaven".
Fully enclosed (and I really mean it, I have beagles!), secure campsite with room for caravans, motorhomes, tourers and tents of all sizes with easy access for even the largest vans - dedicated to all kinds of dogs - fluffy, tiny, enormous, spotted, goofy and playful - all have a warm welcome from campsite`s owner Gem and her human mum Penny.
Although advertised as an `adults only` this campsite has not only an agility course, but also a slide and two trampolines including one for those "I`m not fat, I`m fluffy" ones and even their humans! If it gets too hot your dog will be thrilled for splashing in the stream which runs through the campsite and a pool for the bravest tail-waggers never mind the extensive field to exercise and sniff all the messages left by other four legged buddies.
For people and their companions who are not keen on those rainy days (just like our posh pooches) and don`t want to wet their precious coats can enjoy a cup of tea at the indoor area with ball pen, comfortable sofas and that unsurprisingly high counter where you can buy some delicious sweets. There you can also find showers and WC cubicles where your pupper can stuck his nose under the doors to let you know - he`s right by your side no matter what and don`t worry if your fido decided to put a fresh perfume on - there are also a dog washing facilities on site.
Lovely landlady Gem thought her human well as she is truly prepared to suggest plenty of dog-friendly activities near the campsite including our favourite Filey beach walk only 20min drive away.
As the only place in United Kingdom designed especially for dogs and their human companions I must admit - it has reached my expectations - sat in a camping chair, drinking hot chocolate and watching my dogs playing and having a better social life than myself was the highlight of my week. Camping can`t get any better from here so here`s to many more weekends spent at the "Oskada park"!
