A dog-welcoming country hotel and restaurant, just 4 miles away from the M6 Junction 17 and Sandbach.
This is a fabulous walking spot, with not just one good walk but several. No dog with any manners could possibly complain about a doggiestop here.
Genuinely nice and dog-friendly inn with plenty of history behind it. We thought the meals were great value, and definitely recommend their Fish Fridays. Easy to get to from the M6/20 and the A56 too
This is a park that has seen some history, and yet survived to be an incredibly quiet and peaceful dog walking venue.
This is a gem of a dog walk as well as an inspired piece of urban regeneration. The park is linear because it used to be a railway line serving Wigan and Glazebrook.
There's plenty of space here for a good long dog walk, either on the signed trails or just rambling around the 200 hectares of the park.
This is ideal dog walking country and there is plenty of space for doggy romping around the copses and grassland.
When walking on a Beacon it's clear that the walking won't be flat, and that good views are guaranteed.
Lovely easy walk on gravelled paths around a very large country park. Lots of access to the River Lostock running through which the dog loved.
Relaxing 150 acres of parkland that seems to please dog walkers of all ages. Once part of a family estate, Worden's gardens were designed by Andrew Nesfield - of Alton Towers and Kew Gardens fame.
Cuerden Valley Park is hugely popular with dog walkers, and the bright-eyed, waggy tailed dogs Jem met made it clear that this is a piece of canine heaven.
Witton Park is a large recreation park with plenty of amenities, and is fortunate to have the Weaver's Way footpath starting in the park as well.
