With more than 200 acres of woodland and formal gardens here, there are many options to choose from, all starting from the central courtyard.
This is a great place to stop for a piece of real rural quiet.
Warm and extremely welcoming dog-friendly pub. We called in on a mid-week lunchtime and found a busy and thriving atmosphere. For a village inn, this one definitely punches above its weight.
Roaring log fires in winter, and wall-to-wall dogs - this is the place to live the canine dream! Update: new management now in place and significant work is planned for 2019/20 so currently food isn't...
This walk is an idyllic linear stroll through one of the most scenic of the White Peak dales, with dog-friendly pubs at either end of the walk! It's 4 miles each way, 8 in total which is a bit longer...
Another monumental moment of early community building, popular with local dog walkers. This is one of the best historic places in the country, well up there with Stonehenge.
Based around an Edwardian reservoir, this country park makes a perfect journey break. There's a mixture of meadows and woodland to wander around as well as a circular reservoir walk.
A great little pub famous for having no bar! You can take your dog for a lovely walk along the canal and pit stop for a fresh cob or pork pie with a refreshing beverage of choice.
Large and popular 1,400 acre country park just off the A3. There are plenty of facilities to satisfy everyone, off-lead dog walking can be restricted in some areas as there are sheep and deer.
Small woodland near Farnham where dogs can really enjoy an off-lead scamper through the trees. It was pouring with rain when we were here and Jem was a bit miserable about his walkies.
An enormous Forestry Commission run forest park, with plenty for dogs, kids and walkers to enjoy.
There are three signed trails for dogs to enjoy, all well signed from the visitor centre and easy to reach from the car park.
