As you know we always welcome well behaved dogs on our campsite, but they must be on leads or tethered at all times, but there are plenty of places off site where they can be let off to have a run. Regulars, Matt and Jason were out enjoying the beautiful countryside and rivers around the campsite this weekend with their dogs, Harvey (brown) and Dexter and Matt sent us a few pictures.
