A country park with plenty of nature and history to look out for. The beacon hill is one of the highest points in Leicestershire, and gives a big view on a clear day. There are sections where dogs should be on leads, but plenty of romping ground outside these.
Getting there: several car parks available and we went to the one signed for the Farm Trail. Car park is pay on exit. Picnic tables. Adventure playground. Cafe
For a first visit, head for the beacon from the car park, and then continue on the marked circular walk. It passes 'Frying Pan pond' and 'Frank's Pit'.

Fabulous circular walk, now with tearoom!
A new addition to Beacon Hill Lower Car Park is a dog friendly cafe. I didn’t try it, as the owner of 4 young dogs I’m just not that brave yet! But we did enjoy a fabulous walk up to the beacon, where, with it being the highest point in Leicestershire, you can see for miles and miles. Lots of other dogs and their humans, wide smooth paths, and plenty of opportunities to wander in woods. My photo is a bit blurry, but it was rather windy!
