A relaxing woodland dog walk and a lovely pub to come back to. This is a regenerating village local and well worth a visit.
Pick a warm sunny day for this dog walk with views, and relaxing refreshment afterwards.
If you're stressed out from driving, a short leg stretch on an easy to navigate bridleway is just the answer. While the dog takes care of the sniffing, this is a relaxing spot to get some headspace.
This is the pub that the Prancing Pony in Lord of the Rings is said to be based on. A regular stopping point for Tolkien on his regular journey between Oxford and Birmingham.
Jem adored his walk here, on a section of the Oxfordshire Way. By the time we returned we were both smelling sweetly of Cow Parsley.
Sun-kissed Cotswold stone and a picture perfect dog-friendly coaching inn makes this tiny village a lovely spot to take a break.
Friendly little pub in a village where everyone seems obsessed with cars. Expect to see some lovely classic cars parked near the pub, and definitely avoid during the Grand Prix.
One of those moments when you think time must have stood still.
Busy, popular and thriving pub on the Grand Union canal. In summer it's a delight to sit in the garden and relax, after the dog walk of course.
A 15th century pub tucked under Windgather Rocks. That's over 500 years of traveller hospitality, which sounds amazing.
Very easy to find on the Daventry Road, and ideal for a doggie pitstop.
Village pub in a lovely location overlooking the village pond. Dogs get a good welcome.
