Dog Friendly Holidays

We know that dogs are an important part of the family, that’s why we welcome four legged friends, free of charge, to our Swanage holiday park. There’s no need to leave your canine companion at home, when you can bring them for a holiday to remember at Ulwell Holiday park!

Dorset is a fantastic destination, if you’re planning to holiday with dogs. There’s an abundance of dog friendly attractions, pubs, bars and restaurants, as well as some of the most scenic walks and dog friendly beaches in the country.

Our immaculately maintained holiday park is fast becoming the dog friendly holiday park of choice for guests visiting Swanage, with many returning year on year. We’re committed to providing all our guests an enjoyable stay with well-maintained facilities and high levels of customer service and care.

Our friendly reception team will be more than happy to point you in the right direction or offer helpful suggestions of pet friendly places to visit. Some of our favourite walks are accessible from the grounds of the park, offering picturesque views of the Purbeck Hills and the spectacular Dorset Coastline.

We personally recommend taking some time to explore Kimmeridge, Worbarrow Bay and iconic Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door during your stay.

What our guests say

  • A lovely quiet site

    Andy Blackwell

    A lovely quiet site, nice warm amenities with good sized shower cubicles, shop not open yet as it’s too early but the local pub is ideal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you’re reasonably fit you can walk into Swanage but the bus service is great so why would you want to. Overall a very nice break, we will be back.

  • Super swimming pool

    We have just returned after a brilliant Easter break. Couldn’t fault anything at all and we didn’t want to leave. We didn’t visit the pub but the shop is stocked with local produce and essentials. The facilities are great and the location convenient. Our van was spotless and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back
