Posted on: August 29 2013
We’ve whipped up the walking spots that our Facebook fans told us they love – if there’s a walk you’d recommend to other dog walkers then let us know on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or in the comments below!
In no particular order, here they are…
Farley Mount Country Park, Winchester
There are stunning views from the monument, not bad for a picnic with your pooch! This walking spot was recommended by Ellie Luckett. Image source: Herry Lawford, Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/herry/4326689855/in/set-72157623215786381
Anglesey Coastal Footpath
This is one of Jacky Roberts’ favourite places, the footpath runs all the way round the island and her dogs have grown up loving this place! Just be careful when walking near the edge of the path. Thanks for the photo Jacky!
Sometimes described as a miniature mountain range, Malvern Hills is for the adventurous walkers! This is Sarah Hill’s recommendation, she says ‘just beautiful for both us and our dogs’. Sarah kindly shared this lovely photo with us, stunning!
The Warren in Folkestone, Kent
Donna and Allan’s favourite place to take their woofers is the Warren. They say it’s a beautiful 4 mile walk through forest then back along the beach. Great pictures, with a very happy looking pooch.
Yorkshire Dales - West Burton Waterfalls
This is Doris T Doggy’s favourite place, perfect for splashing around in! This was a lovely photo shared on Twitter.
Chevin Forest Park, Otley (Leeds) & High Royds Park, Menston (West Yorkshire)
Doris T Doggy also loves these two parks, which have plenty of mud. Be ready for a mucky pup after visiting these two walking spots! Image source: mylifeinleeds.co.uk.
Elland Wood, Halifax
Paul Bentley’s recommended destination is Elland Wood which is rich in nature and very pleasant for a walk with your dog. He very kindly sent us these images on Twitter.
Dunnet Bay, Scotland
Margaret Goulden’s favourite place for dog walking is Dunnet Bay in Scotland. A lovely wide open beach, ideal if your dog loves swimming, or just a good long walk along the sand. There’s a car park next to the caravan park and just across the road is a lovely forest walk (which isn’t too strenuous)! Thanks Margaret for the photos.
Dunwich Woods and Minsmere, Suffolk
If you live in Suffolk, or are visiting then Dunwich Woods and Minsmere are excellent spots for taking your dog, as recommended by Denise Moyse. Great even in the winter months! Image courtesy of wildlifetrusts.org.
Carlton Marshes, Suffolk
Marian Reeder’s recommended destination is Carlton Marshes, near Lowestoft in Suffolk. It’s a nature reserve with lots of wildlife to enjoy. There is marsh and woodland to explore with your pooch. Image courtesy of geography.org.uk.
Diana Curtis-Ellerby recommends Hayling Island beach, great for a breath of fresh air for you and your dog. She takes her spaniels there and they love it! Great pics Diana.
Sutton Park, West Midlands
Anne Colin’s dogs always love a stroll in Sutton Park, it’s a city park including the millennium woodland, perfect for a stroll with your canine companion! Cracking pictures.
