While you may not be able to bring your furry little friends along to a hotel, there are plenty of dog friendly caravans in Skegness, as well as some amazing campsites! Some sites may allow dogs to stay for free and others require a small fee that can vary from place to place. Being close to the beach and a short distance away from the Lincolnshire Wolds makes it a great holiday destination for all the family.
Between the beginning of May and the end of September dogs are banned from the busiest parts of Skegness beach. But if you head down to the southern part of the beach known as South Bracing, you and your dogs can visit all year round, as well as the sandy beaches of Ingoldmells. Make the most of your time in the seaside resort and enjoy the lovely weather on the many walking trails.
