Camping at Masons Campsite with your dog

Bringing your dog camping is a lot of fun, especially when you have all the right tools. After all, Wet pups, muddy paws, and tents don’t always mix. However, here at Masons Campsite, we’re proud to offer everything you need to make sure you and your furry friend have an equally amazing time!

This blog shares the best way you can bring your four-legged companion to the great outdoors for a weekend to remember.

We do the best walkies

We’re so lucky to be surrounded by nothing but the rolling Yorkshire landscape – the view on arrival always sets tails wagging! Here are a few walks as a ‘starter-for-ten’, although there are many, many, many more!

Exploring Appletreewick

Welcome to Yorkshire featured one of our favourite strolls alongside the river. If your pooch is a water baby, this walk works wonders on a hot day.

Trekking across the three Yorkshire peaks

Experienced adventurers and their four-legged companions are often tempted by this highly challenging route, which can be found an hour away from our campsite. If your pup never seems to tire, this walk is sure to be followed by a well-rested night. You’ll need all the essentials and luxuries in tow, and don’t be too hard on yourself if you only manage one or two peaks!

What about a pet-friendly pub lunch?

We’re not short of traditional country inns here, and lucky for us, plenty of them are dog-friendly too. Our local is the Craven Arms, which represents exactly how a pub should be: open fires, great drinks, and local food – where muddy boots and paws are equally welcome.

Further along the river you can find the picturesque village of Bolton Abbey, which has a few eateries such as the Cavendish Pavilion and Devonshire Arms Brasserie & Bar. Four-legged friends are welcome outside, and on a warm summer’s day, there’s nowhere else you’d rather be than soaking up those views.

A short drive to Skipton will take you to the heart of dog-friendly territory. Artisan shops, coffee nooks and local eateries are in abundance, and we definitely recommend stopping by the town so your pooch can get nose to nose with Yorkshire natives.

To camp or glamp?

Whichever option you choose, you’re guaranteed a great time. But there are some fundamental differences between camping and glamping when you’re taking your pooch which might sway your decision here. As your yurts and safari tents are pre-built, you will immediately save a lot of time and fuss from arrival, putting your trip on the best foot.

What’s more, glamping at Masons Campsite ensures you have a private outdoor tap to keep water bowls full, as well as an outside table and chairs to keep your pup’s routines in check. Often, guests with dogs choose glamping as an option to maximise their time together and have a stress-free trip.

All the extras

Our on-site facilities for campers and glampers alike are built with dogs in mind, including the Squarestream shop, which has all the goodies a dog could ever dream of. If anything gets left in the house, we’ve got your back!

There’s no ‘ruffin it’ here
