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

Edited: 21st January 2022

Rural dog walk and dog-friendly pub near Henley, Oxfordshire


A rural country pub surrounded by tracks and paths, so perfect for a dog walk.  This walk is a 3.5 mile circular route, with a shorter option for little legs or elderly dogs.


The pub has recently (December 2021) been bought by the Laithwaite wine family and is being upgraded and renovated. We're not sure when it will re-open - updates very welcome if you have them. The car park is still available for use.


With your back to the pub, turn right and walk the length of Peppard Common. For small/older dogs a sedate trot on the common may be enough to keep them happy. More demanding dogs will need the 3.5 mile extension.  Reach Colliers Lane and turn right, and then turn right onto a woodland track/bridleway (about 5 minutes walking to here). Then walk ahead on the track for a mile until you reach a crossroads of paths. Go straight on here and then turn left after a quarter of a mile/10 minutes. Reach a point (a third of a mile on) where a number of paths radiate off, and turn left onto Colmore Lane. It's used by vehicles but is just as muddy as all the other tracks. Pass a couple of houses and keep going past one more single house, and then turn left onto a signed bridleway. This brings you back to the start of your walk. So turn right at the path crossroads and return to Colliers Lane. Turn left and then retrace your route along the common to the Red Lion.
