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

Melton Woods dog walk, Yorkshire



A great place for a dog walk, and the woods are also full of local history. Records of human activity here go back as far as the Bronze Age - and after that the Saxons, Romans and everybody else made their mark on the forest. Thumbs up to Doncaster Council for rescuing the woods in the 1990s, when the Forestry Comission were forced to sell them off, and doing a really good conservation job since then.

Large space for off lead walks

Great wood, plenty of tracks, both wide open ones which would be good in any weather and more off pieste winding ones. Beautiful for wild flowers in spring. Although the car park was full we only saw 3 other sets of walkers at a distace and passed one on a path. Be prepared for horse riders as there is a bridleway. If you want food try Reeds Restaurant at the Best Western Hotel, 3 miles away.

Great Walk

Lovely well defined paths round this well maintained wood, with lots of off piste patch you can also follow, plenty for the dogs to explore. Beautiful when the bluebells are out, a carpet of blue on the wood floor, the snow drops are also as impressive. Parking for about 12 cars at the entrance. My dogs know we are going there from a mile away and bark till we get there with excitement.
