Dog Friendly Holidays in Wales
We truly believe that the beautiful rolling valleys and picturesque setting of Rockbridge Park is perfect holiday location for you and your dog.
At Rockbridge there is plenty of space to exercise your dog(s). We have a safe, enclosed off-lead dog field that is great for letting your dog run off some energy or even for some training and socialising, and there is access to public footpaths right from the park into the surrounding countryside.
If you are visiting us in your touring caravan / motorhome, maybe a relaxing camping holiday or staying in our self-catering properties, you may even want to own your own private holiday lodge, whichever it is we truly believe that Rockbridge Country Holiday Park is the perfect dog friendly caravan site.
Dog Wash - spoil your pooch
We think it's that important to make your holiday with your best friend as nice and easy as possible. So we think we have gone the extra mile and built a dog wash! That's right, a dedicated space just to pamper your pooch during your stay at Rockbridge. So, should it rain, there is no need to worry about that unique wet dog smell, about those mucky paws messing up the caravan, or the weather spoiling your day.
The space has a warm shower over a raised shower base so you don't have to bend over or strain your back (we have even built steps up to help your dog get in and out). We have a hair dryer especially for the hound to get them dry and comfortable - and smelling of roses!
We think our dog wash is the bees knees, we hope (and Fido) you like it too.
Visiting Dog Groomer
Maybe you just want to put your feet up - you are on holiday after all - we have a visiting dog groomer. We are proud to offer this service. Just call the number and arrange a time to pamper your pooch while you are on holiday (information in your welcome pack).

Ok, I guess you think there is some catch? So everyone can enjoy the parks we try to keep some guidelines in place, so here we go:
We go to great lengths to ensure that everyone who stays with us enjoys a clean, fresh environment, and we always clean our accommodation and public areas thoroughly after pets have visited. There are obvious challenges to this, and we ask that pet owners help us to maintain our high standards for the next guest by following our guidelines:
You may only have 2 dogs (other than any of the breeds subject to the Dangerous Dog Act 1991).
We understand dogs bark, particularly in the presence of other dogs. We would prefer dogs who are particularly agitated or excitable to be taken outside to burn off some energy, so that other customers are not unduly disturbed (we will trust your judgement as dog owners on this). Obviously it is very difficult to stop dogs barking but we'd like to keep it from spoiling the relaxed atmosphere in the park.
For those staying in our self-catering accommodation, we request that pet owners bring pet bedding to protect our bedroom carpets and soft furnishings. Please do not allow pets to sleep on the beds.
All the usual rules around dogs in the countryside apply - please observe the countryside code, keep dogs on a lead around livestock, and please ensure waste is removed from public areas and disposed of safely. There are a number of waste bins around the park.
All pets must be supervised by and under the control of you, or of a responsible adult in your party, at all times. This means you may not leave any pet or animal unsupervised in the caravan or anywhere on the park at any time. Nor may you leave any pet or animal under the supervision of any person aged under 18. These rules apply even if the pet or animal knows the park well and you believe them to be well-behaved.
If you do not supervise and control any pet or animal, we are likely to ask you to remove it from the park straight away. This is because we cannot allow the safety of others to be put at risk.
If you see another pet or animal anywhere on the park which does not appear to be supervised by and under the control of a responsible adult, or whose behaviour gives a cause for concern, please let us know.
Please keep dogs under control at all times on the park.
Nothing in these Pet Rules prevents you or any member of your party from bringing an assistance dog to the park, or from using the dog exactly as at home.
We thank you for your co-operation and look forward to seeing you and your dogs at Rockbridge Park soon.
