This is a great walk for blowing the travel cobwebs away. There are two colour coded trails running through the forest, and most dogs will be very safe off-lead here.
This walk follows the course of a river, and ducks underneath the M6 to emerge at the site of an ancient motte and bailey fortress in the middle of the water.
Lovely easy walk on gravelled paths around a very large country park. Lots of access to the River Lostock running through which the dog loved.
The woodland here is perfect for dogs to really let off steam and thunder through the trees at speed.
A pair of adjoining parks, both with Green Flag status and very popular with Solihull dog walkers. There is a small cafe, and it's also possible to walk from here to the town centre.
It would be impossible to guess that Tibshelf Services has immediate access to over 9 miles of countryside walking on the Five Pits Trail.
This is such a relaxing and gentle place to take a break from the A1M, and dogs will love the parkland here. It's a great place for a dog walk.
The paths here meander through a fine mix of woodland, meadow and waterside. The area is evidently a popular spot for local dog walkers, and we didn't see anyone without a dog!
A handy 2-mile (35 mins) circular dog walk on tidy grassland that keeps dogs reasonably clean in all weathers.
Fantastic walk along the river bank, with a lovely dog-friendly hotel bar to return to.
Relaxing 150 acres of parkland that seems to please dog walkers of all ages. Once part of a family estate, Worden's gardens were designed by Andrew Nesfield - of Alton Towers and Kew Gardens fame.
One of the entrances to the National Forest is right in the middle of the Donington Park motorway services area with all the usual facilities.
