The woodland here is perfect for dogs to really let off steam and thunder through the trees at speed. Even on the hottest of days, the cooling canopy of branches provides shade and the leaf strewn tracks are kind to car-tired travelling paws.

Lovely woodland dog walk - with picnic benches
We stopped for a break here en route to the Lake District and it was great. A lovely woodland which is easy to find your way around even though the markers are a bit worn. We had a picnic on a hot day underneath the trees, and there are rubbish bins to get rid of your rubbish which helps on a long journey. Top tip is not to park immediately off the road, but to keep driving up until you see the water tower. Will stop here again.

M6 Jct 15
One of our regular stopping places when travelling between Northamptonshire and Scotland. A lovely bit of woodland with lots for the dogs to explore. We have never actually managed to find the route markers but it is easy enough to navigate your way around a short loop. Free parking and a bit of open space for a picnic lunch too.

Beautiful Autumn Walk
Just finished this walk today. Our doggy absolutely loved it! Beautiful woodland walk with lots of things for him to sniff and explore. The signposts for the different routes could be a little better but even without following a specific route it was still easy to find your way around.

A brilliant place to have a break from M6 traffic (although lacks toilets). We started to follow the red route, lost the signs and made up our own route through the woods. Fun for dogs and teenagers.

This is one of my favourite places to walk our dog, she loves running through the trees and playing in the leaves in the winter!
