Find the perfect dog walk on your journey - Driving with Dogs

Edited: 12th April 2020

Laxton dog walk, Nottinghamshire


Laxton is reputed to be the only village left in England that still maintains the 'rotating' medieval field system. It's all explained in the tiny visitor centre (in the pub car park), and makes for a really interesting dog walk.


Refreshments at the Dovecote Inn. Visitor Centre, including display about open field farming system, information boards. Public WCs and car park adjoining the pub for non-patrons. There's a short video to watch, and a selection of informative leaflets - nice for kids of all ages.

The visitor centre has details of a number of different trails around the village and its fields, and it's worth following one of these as it's surprisingly easy to lose a sense of direction here (we've made more wrong turns here than on any other walk on the site!).

There are several stiles to navigate whichever way you go and large dogs with short legs, like Basset Hounds, will find these tricky. On a dry day this is a grand spot for blowing away the cobwebs. On a wet day, unless you have wellies on board this is one to avoid. Walk lengths vary, and you'll need several hours for the longer trails.
