Brits have spent the last several years perfecting their staycations and finding their favourite UK locations.

But, we think we’ve found one destination that might just blow your top pick out of the water – if you’re a dog lover that is.

There’s now a miniature camping experience available for your four-legged best friend.

The Canine Campsite has been unveiled by camping experts, Camping in the Forest, featuring pup-sized tents, doggy camping chairs and even tiny sleeping bags for pampered pooches to enjoy the great outdoors.

The site expands across 40-acres so dogs and they families can enjoy strolls and incredible views of the forest and glens.

Dogs staying at the Sherwood Pines campsite in Nottinghamshire recently dove into a host of activities available at the site including strolls through the leafy forest, complimentary chew toys and relaxing uni-mutt canine accommodation.

We're howling at the hilarious photos!

After filling their day exploring the local area, pups were treated to a “doggy spa” with their paws and fur washed and dried.

They could also be spotted relaxing in doggy deck chairs and enjoying the scenery in style with sunglasses and mini bandanas to help get them into the holiday spirit.

The pooch holiday camp has been described as an “ideal way for pampered pooches to unwind and get back to nature” – and owners can now book to take their pooch on the holiday of a lifetime.

You'd have to be barking to miss out!

Though, furry friends must stay on the lead in the campsite grounds for safety reasons.

We can’t imagine anything better than camping surrounded by dozens of dogs – so the booking site is sure to be hounded.

And, to help British mutts get into the mood Camping in the Forest is giving away mini tents for stays this summer but pet owners will need to be ready to dash for one for their pooch, as there are only a limited number available.

Rebecca Phipps, marketing manager at Camping in the Forest, said: “Camping holidays are a great way to spend time with loved ones and enjoy the great outdoors, and that goes for our four-legged friends too!

“Our Canine Campsite is the ideal way for pampered pooches to unwind and get back to nature and provided the perfect opportunity for pets to experience all the excitement of a summer staycation, with their very own miniature versions of everything you might expect on a camping trip, from tiny tents to pup-sized sleeping bags."
