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

M5 Junction 4 dog walk from The Hobbit, Worcestershire


Fabulous dog walking in Middle Earth. Yup, the real thing! The dog won't care but kids can look for hobbits.


Free car park, closes at dusk. WC, visitor centre, shop, café with outdoor seating, large childrens' play area and fascinating child-friendly displays about the park. Dog poo bins throughout the park.


The Lickeys are worth visiting in their own right, as well as being a fantastic place to break a journey.  The charm of the Lickeys was immortalised by JRR Tolkien, and this really is Middle Earth.  The area hasn't been turned into a hobbit theme park, but if you return to your car at dusk, it isn't hard to imagine the Ents behind you preparing for a solemn gathering.   There are three trails here, the Squirrel Trail is the shortest at just under a mile, the Bluebell Trail is 1.5 miles, and the Woodpecker Trail an enthusiastic 7 miles. All the trails are clearly marked and very easy to follow.

Lovely woodland walkies

Had a lovely walk here through the quiet woods, a perfect place to walk our doggie and stretch our legs too! Nice well maintained paths and views from the hill top. Will definitely stop here again for sure!

A Great Place For Dog Walking.

A large area, mainly wooded and not only are there the marked walks but plenty of scope to make your own trail. Lovely views of the surrounding area. My dog loves it here especially as there are lots of squirrels! Just be aware that it can be very muddy even after a dry spell but there is a tap near to the Visitors Centre for dog washing.
