Plenty of outdoor stuff going on here, with enough space for everything. But don't stray onto the mountain bike circuits!
This is a 4 mile circular walk I done for my blog, its also really good for geocachers.
A remote rocky beach. Take a picnic and take all day over the walk!
Dogs allowed on this small and lovely sandy beach all year round.
Another dog-pleaser of a walk dog starting at the motorway services, but well-hidden from public view. This is a dry, summer walk and gets well muddy after rain.
A glorious 4 mile walk alongside the River Dove. Unlike the popular Dove Dale a bit further upstream, here you'll have the dale to yourself and every opportunity for a top class mooch with the pooch.
It seems a bit unfair to pay just a short visit to this very gracious chateau and the surrounding dog-friendly park - and if you're staying in the area then an afternoon visit is likely to be much...
Romantic woodland, with clearly marked paths to guide you around walks of varying lengths. Don't expect company in this secluded spot - apart from the gently twittering birds.
Shell and sandy beach with no restrictions for dogs.
Biggest park in the area, with a mix of scrubland, an ancient moated manor house and trees. It's dogs on leads only (see the comment below) so don't forget the long lead if you're planning to visit.
This is a delightful rural break in the grounds of a former stately house. The park itself is quite large and the network of paths takes you through varied aspects of the grounds.
This is a delightful dog walk alongside the River Loire and then a stroll through the atmospheric village of Rochefort.
