An easy 4 mile dog walk, starting from the very atmospheric ruins of Kenilworth Castle.
Coarse sand beach, 2 miles south of Sutton-on-sea. Concrete parking terrace facing sea next to beach. Dog access all year.

Forestry Commission woodland where you least expect to find it. Great for dogs, and Jem loves coming here.
After the rocks, 3 miles of beautiful sand. Zones for dog access in summer and these are well-signed.
