A real holiday with dogs

If you are looking to get away with your dogs, i've found the perfect place!

Out in the Open campsite don't just tolerate dogs, they welcome them making sure they have plenty of space to run off lead in their own designated field which is mown regularly to reduce the risk of ticks.   A truely dog friendly campsite, they can even help arrange local doggy daycare for days you don't want to take them with you.  There are numerous footpaths and bridleways which lead past the campsite so the car can stay parked.

Jester, the resident dog host, gives every dog a warm welcome and is happy to show them (or chase them) around the field.


This campsite is truly out in the open, surrounded by nothing but rolling hills and and open moorland.  There are no dodgy pitches and definitely no road noise, the nearest country lane being over 400 yards away.  Set inbetween Falmouth and Helston you won't be short of places to visit, that is if you can manage to tear yourself away from your ideallic surrounding.


Cath and Dee are fantastic hosts who make you feel very welcome and still have a great sense of humour despite running a campsite for many years!  They pride themselves on providing modern clean showers, toilets and washing facilites and even have a large covered barn with picnic benches and chairs should be unlucky enough to encounter some unfriendly Cornish weather.

If you don't own your own tent or don't like traditional camping they have a very stylish solution in the form of their Shepherd's Huts.  These 2 beautifully restored huts have been decorated in a country house style, with wood burning stoves, antique double bed, country kitchen and big pine table.  You get to use both shepherds huts on your stay (one as bedroom the other kitchen diner) and you get your own private field with uninterupted views of the beautiful moorland.


Altenatively they have a traditional tipi (along with indoor open fire) which is comfortably kitted out for a luxurious camping stay.


Having been to many campsites, i can honestly say, Out In the Open is superior to anything I have ever stayed at.  Uncrowded, large pitches, clean hot showers, breathtaking views, wet weather provision, space for dogs (as many as you like), fantastic walks and genuinely friendly hosts with ample local knowledge of the best locations.

Out In the Open is a perfect campsite where everyone is welcome, i just might regret telling you all about this well kept secret in case i can't get booked in!!

These are genuine pictures taken at Out In the Open campsite, no photo library shots here, just the real thing, and it's even more awe inspiring when you get there.

And they stock a good supply of Dicky Bags too, incase you forget to buy one before you leave.

Just what I needed!

"Wow! The Dicky Bag is exactly what I needed! The clip saves me carrying the bag in my hand, the seal stops it from smelling, and it looks great!"

"I love my Dicky Bag! It's so much nicer than having to carry a plastic bag around, plus the neoprene design means it doubles as my stubby holder! Awesome!"

Great for carrying... anything!

Just wanted to say thank you for my Camo style Dicky Bag - as well as being ideal for walking Muttley, it's perfect for carrying extra paintballing ammo!

Top Rated Product!

I recently purchased a dicky bag (dog poo bag!) online as it seemed the answer to all of my poop scooping problems (no bins on walks, clutching a tesco carrier bag blatantly full of crap - you know how it is! )

Excellent product

We love these messages - even the professionals are using our dog walking bags! Smile

"To the Dicky bag team.  I am a professional dog walker and  have bought products before which you use to carry your dogs No2's in and have given up with them with in a couple of days as they have always been so impractical to use.  I must say I have been using my Dicky bag for 3 weeks now and love it!

I like the idea of carrying spare bags in the top although I take them off the roll before hand and push them in to the slot.  The bag is discreet and so much better than when I had pooh bags swinging from my hip! Read more
It's hard to stop people borrowing it! I won a Dicky bag at alocal dog show, having never heard of the company before I didn't know just how great this product was. We take our bag to every show,walk and journey and it really is brilliant. You wouldn't know what it contained and I honestly couldn't live without our now! My mum and sister are having one each for christmas they are amazed. I keep having to ask for my bag back from my sister who tries stealing it on a regular basis!
Thanks to all at Dicky Bags for making our life easier, less embarrasing and more convient. Dicky bags make being a responsible dog owner stylish and cool!
