The British weather might be unpredictable, but thanks to its rolling hills, sandy beaches and colourful countryside, you can enjoy exploring the UK whatever the weather. Whether you’re looking to spend a day in the countryside or an hour by the sea, there’s no greater way to uncover Britain’s beauty than on foot – with your trusty dog by your side.
From Northumberland’s unspoilt coastline to the breath-taking Gloucestershire countryside, Great Britain is brimming with scenic walking routes – and in today’s post, we’re bringing you some of the best trails for you and your furry friend to try out.
Northumberland is home to one of the largest stretches of dog friendly beaches in the UK, popular all year round. If you’re on the hunt for a seaside stroll, Beadnell Beach is the perfect route for you and your dog. The walk takes around half an hour and with the tempting water close by, your dog won’t be able to resist a splash around in the surf – so don’t forget to bring a towel! With miles of sand for your pet to explore and a range of exciting activities nearby, you won’t want to leave!
If you’re searching for a more secluded route, Druridge Bay Country Park is a popular spot for dog walkers – offering a beautiful lake side walk or a gentle wander along the beach. After your walk, pop into the on-site café, where you and your dog can enjoy a refreshing drink and rest!
After a day spent exploring, you’ll both be ready for a well-earned break – and thanks to a wide range of dog friendly cottages in the region, you needn’t worry about finding a place for you and your pooch to rest your heads!
If you’re looking for a walk with a view, the lush landscape of Haresfield Beacon won’t disappoint. Once you arrive on site, there are a number of routes to choose from. For a fairly easy, flatter route, head across the fields and drink in the sights. If you’re looking for a more challenging route, venture into the woods. Here you’ll be met with more walking paths which vary in difficulty – and dogs are allowed off the lead here, meaning your pooch is as free to explore as you are.
For a hike by the sea in Cornwall, a visit to Seaton Beach is a must. This walk will take around an hour and a half, depending on your pace, and provides beautiful panoramic views. Parking here is free but you might want to take some money for a refreshment at the end of your walk.
If you’d prefer to venture inland and are happy to get a little muddy, head for Chapel Cliff. Located on the edge of the fishing village of Polperro, this picturesque route offers something for everyone. From wandering along flat footpaths to hiking up uneven terrain, your dog will love the challenge!
If you find yourself in the South of England, Canada Common in Hampshire is the ideal walking spot for enthusiastic nature lovers. Whether you fancy a gentle stroll or are ready to take on a bigger rural route, you and your canine pal will be right at home in the wild. Be aware that other animals inhabit this area of Hampshire, so keeping your dog on its lead it recommended. With free parking, toilets and a picnic area, if you’re looking for a day out with the family – including your pooch – this is the perfect spot.
With 700 acres of land ripe for the exploring, Shipley Country Park is guaranteed to impress both you and your pooch! You can reach the park by car, bus or train and entry is free – but if you arrive by car, be sure to bring some charge for parking.
The beautiful hamlet of Stenson is also high on the list of must-see places in Derbyshire. With plenty of scenic walking trails and a charming canal, it’s the perfect place for a day out or even an extended break. From an 8 mile trek to a leisurely stroll past the barges, you can tailor an afternoon along the canal to suit you both.
So whether you’re on the hunt for a challenging hike or searching for a countryside stroll, thanks to an amazing array of dog friendly walking routes, Great Britain promises the perfect day out for you and your four legged friend.
