Dog-Friendly Travel | Hayling Island

Hi all!

We've just arrived home from a lovely long weekend in Hayling, and I thought I'd share a few photos from our trip with you. I spent so much time on the island as a child, it feels almost like a home away from home for my family, and my parents own a fab caravan on one of the sites. Whenever possible we go on little visits to the coast, and it's no different now that Will and I have the dogs. We packed so much into the weekend that I'm going to split it up into a few posts... here's a peek at our Saturday!

We headed to the van on Friday evening, so it was too late to do anything other than pick up a chinese takeaway for tea, and head off to bed. On Saturday, we decided to stay on the island and take the dogs for a long walk; I had found a new route during a recent dachshund meet-up, so I knew some fairly quiet spots that would be a good place for Archie to have a run. The dogs had such a lovely time, it was so heart-warming to see Archie in particular sprinting along and really burning off some energy. Winnie had a mix and match of accessories on bless her, find them here: bow, collar, lead, bandana.

We had a lovely leisurely stroll for about an hour, before stopping at the Inn on the Beach for a drink. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and it was just blissful to sit and enjoy a lemonade in the sun... especially with the sea views! You can see in the photo above how much Archie has changed since his first visit there 8 months ago, I can't believe how little he was. Look at his little floppy ears! There always lots of dogs relaxing at the Inn on the Beach with their humans, and our two appreciated the numerous water bowls that are dotted around on the terrace.

After the looooong walk back to the car, we were all in need of a nap! We relaxed at the van for a little while before heading out to dinner at the Barley Mow with my brother and his girlfriend, who were also staying in Hayling for the weekend. All in all, it was a lovely day! Pretty much everywhere in Hayling is reasonably dog-friendly, and I love bringing the pooches along with us. 

Have you been to Hayling Island? Let us know, and keep an eye out for the next installment of the weekend!
