You and your dog will be made very welcome at this homely and traditional pub just off the Harborough Road. Its kerb appeal isn't great, but once inside it's spacious, clean and friendly. And the dog walk is ideal for giving travelling pooches a real workout.
Parking: car park at the Bull's Head. Also some parking at the start of the off-lead dog walk. The Bulls Head also has dog-friendly B&B rooms.
Excellent dog walk here, with the slight downside that you need to walk for nearly 10 minutes to get to the start point. On a baking hot day, I drove to the start and found easy parking without offending the residents. Don't block the farmer's access gate.
Turn left out of the pub car park, and then immediately left again on Oxendon Road. Carry on until the end of the road. The next section is on foot only:
Go straight on, passing the dog bin and continuing on the hard surface track. You'll see footpath signs pointing off in all directions, but ignore these for now. Carry on until you reach a multi-user path (Midshires Way) and turn left. Then take the first turn on your left, just after a pond, and this will bring you back to your start point.
This walk is around 3-miles. For a shorter doggie break, turn around at your own halfway point.
The first part of the walk is fully accessible.
