Top dog award

Not much matters more to us Brits than our four-legged friends, and we need their company on holiday just as much as when we're snuggled at home.

These pooch-pampering sites know that dogs are a part of the family, and make sure that they feel like it! From dedicated dog walks, to on-site groomers and pet friendly pods, man's best friend has never been made more welcome!

National winner

Sandy Balls Holiday Village, Hampshire

A site where pets are recognised as members of the family, with a wide selection of pet friendly accommodation from camping and touring to pods and lodges. Yet, what really sets the holiday village apart, is its attention to detail.

Dogs can run like the wind in the on-site exercise field, or scamper through woodland trails without a care in the world. When you get peckish and head to the site's restaurant, your four-legged friend is welcome too. And even if you decide to explore on two wheels, you can rent a doggy trailer locally and bring your pooch along for the ride. Talk about a dog's life!
