With all this amazing weather over the last few weeks, no doubt many of you have already been out and about exploring the beautiful Great British countryside with your four-legged friends.
The even better news is that the summer has really only just begun, so there are scores of opportunities to be grabbed with both hands (and all four paws!) for beautiful dog-friendly walks, hikes and strolls.
Can’t decide where to go? Here are just a few of our top picks of destinations for dog walks. Which will you pick first?
One of the greatest walks to be found absolutely has to be The Roaches, a rocky ridge that towers above Leek and Tittesworth Reservoir in the Staffordshire Peaks. No matter whether you’re an experienced hiker, a keen wildlife enthusiast or just someone who loves a bit of fresh air, you’ll find all you need and more on this amazing walk.
Make sure you keep a lookout for Hanging Rock and Lud’s Church which, incidentally, is where some of the filming for the recent Green Knight movie took place. Fun fact!
For a different sort of adventure, whisk your pooches off north of the border and make your way to Steal Falls, the second-highest waterfall in Scotland. This amazing waterfall was formed by two different glaciers that melted and eroded the rock face more than 10,000 years ago!
The walk itself is only 2.5 miles from start to finish so perfect if your dog has little legs or is getting on a bit. ANother one for the film buffs out there as well, since it was used as the setting for some of the Quidditch matches in the Harry Potter franchise.
Looking for a coastal stroll? Then you’ve got to put Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire at the very top of your list, a stunning little fishing village that is impressive in all sorts of ways.
Marvel at the higgledy-piggledy houses and winding streets, check out the beautiful beach and have a dip in the sea, and learn all about the village’s rich smuggling history. You’ve got it all right here!
