Poigny-le-Foret has a resort-like atmosphere, and does attract Parisians in need of fresh air at weekends. We found the prices here higher than in the towns just a little more distant from the N10.
Very easy to reach dog walk off the A1 near St Neots. A series of lakes with well marked paths and an attractive mix of water and wildflowers. Lovely walking for people and dogs.
An atmospheric walk in the footsteps of the outlaw 'Wild Humphrey Kynaston' - sometimes, and rather oddly, called the 'Shropshire Robin Hood'.
Pub with an astonishingly long history of looking after visitors - since 1295? If that's true it's really amazing! Dogs welcome in the bar, and there's good walking in the area.
A lovely varied dog walk off the A14, combining lush woodland with the estuary of the River Orwell. Totally perfect for dogs.
There's good gentle walking here over a pleasant mix of grass and woodland with plenty of space for dogs to really enjoy themselves. A handy walk to know about if you're visiting Manchester.
As a dog walking destination this isn't always perfect, but if you are trying to juggle the demands and interests of friends and family there is a lot here to occupy everyone happily, not least the...
This is a gem of a walk, for dogs and people alike and well worth visiting regularly for those who are lucky enough to live nearby.
This Country Park between Manchester and Bolton is a haven of calm even though it's so close to the motorway. On the day we visited the air was pungent with the scent of wild flowers.
A short walk on hard-surfaced paths to reach a fabulous view over the Itchen Valley. It's close to the M3 too.
This easy-to-find park is a popular local dog walking place, and it's nice to watch the bobbing sails of dinghies on the way around the lake.
Award-winning and dog-friendly gastro-pub just off the A12. A tip-top doggiestop for very lucky dogs and drivers.
