The focus here is on good value and filling food, and it's family and dog-friendly. The carvery has a loyal local following and it's easy to see why.
This small park is quiet and intimate with calming views over the river. Dogs have to be on leads in some parts of the park, especially near buildings.
An unexpected treat for Portsmouth. The opportunity to romp on a common or enjoy a seaside walk. Brilliant.
One of our favourite places for kestrel spotting, and lots of space for dogs to charge around.
Roker beach is a beautiful beach! It's a great walk out rain or shine! My ESS loves the beach, she loves running on the sand and jumping through the sea! Great fun for all of the family too.
A tree filled 70 acre park at the beginning of the A1. Once inside the trees, there's almost no trace of the surrounding traffic and there are plenty of tweeting birds instead.
Ancient semi-natural woodland believed to be more than 400 years old. With many ancient trees, the wood has remained relatively unchanged for centuries and is home to a wide variety of wildlife.
A gentle canalside stroll along a popular stretch of the waterway.
Head here if you're looking for a multi-activity day or afternoon out - there's a massive choice of kids' stuff (from 8 to 80), and some lovely quiet dog trails as well.
A blast of fresh air from the site of the beacon, and a fab view over the Chilterns. Wrap up warm!
If your legs are in need of a good uphill stretch, this is the walk for you. The views from the top on a clear day make it all worthwhile, especially over the Lynn of Lorn to Mull.
Gracious woodland walking for dogs. Even if you're not fascinated by trees, this is an entrancing space to enjoy and well worth a visit.
