This is a 'there and back' Public Footpath walk through some charming countryside, starting in a village with a ford, ducks and working water mill that looks more like a film set than a real life...
A small park with a creek running along the edge of it. There is a rough field which is great for chase and fetch and then a nice clear creek to cool off in afterwards.
Very much dog-walking country, with two popular walking routes passing by the village. And two dog-friendly village pubs too.
Combination of a safe and tranquil park for dog walkers, and a fabulous museum that is a joy for kids of all ages to visit. The cafe and facilities are squeaky lovely too.
This is a fabulous dog walk on an ancient track that was once the pre-Roman highway between the Ivinghoe Beacon in Hertfordshire and far away Norfolk.
This walks starts at one of the highest points in Bedfordshire, within the Chilterns' Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are stunning views over the county and the Sharpenhoe Clappers.
A chance to take a break at an historic thatched pub, and take a walk with the pooch on the ancient Icknield Way.
Lovely pub with a dog walk, close to the M1 and also the A5 but you'd never guess this wasn't deep countryside. Family friendly and dog-friendly.
An alternative to motorway services, and somewhere useful to know about in case there's a serious delay on the motorway.
Welcoming dog-friendly village inn serving food just about all day. It's easy to spot, with a thatched roof and distinctive black and white timbers.
Close to the M1 Junction 13 and 14 this is a good off-lead dog walk, and the dog-friendly pub is just a few minutes drive away.
Country pub, right on the Grand Union canal towpath. Log fires in winter, and plenty of outside seating in summer.
