There are so many great places to walk a dog in Kent, here are just a few of our favourites.
Filled with stunning natural beauty, Ightham Mote is a lovely place to enjoy as a dog walker in Kent. Offering extensive woodland trails and plenty of open space perfect for enjoying a stroll and a breath of fresh air, with miles of paths to explore, your four-legged friend won't get bored. After a good walk, you and your dog might need a drink. There's outdoor seating on the patio of the Mote Café, where you will find dog water bowls and pawsibly even a treat!
Another great place to visit, if you’re borrowing a dog in Kent is Dumpton Gap. The lovely Dumpton Gap beach is situated on the Kent coastline between the maritime towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs. Dogs are welcome on Dumpton Gap beach all year round, making it a popular coastal route for dog walkers. Best visited at low tide, Dumpton Gap is also perfect for families as it offers something for everyone – not just your pooch! When the tide is out, you can walk along the quiet sandy beach itself as you take in the seaside scenery with an ice cream in hand.
Riverside Country Park, Rainham
Your four-legged friend will love running around Riverside Country Park’s 250 acres of open space. This lovely nature reserve is situated alongside the Medway River Estuary and is very popular with dog walkers for its wide variety of different walks for you and your pooch to enjoy, many of which are flat and easy.
If you’re still looking for dog walks in Kent this stunning dog friendly walk covers two miles through a natural haven. Strolling through the nature reserve with your pooch in tow, you’ll come across beautiful woodland that will keep your four legged friend intrigued for some time. If you head out in spring, this walk will reveal woodland glades carpeted with bluebells and wood anemones and the sound of Nightingales high above in the woodland canopy. Along the way you can stop and enjoy striking views across the marshes and the farmland towards the Royal Military Canal, before heading back towards Hamstreet.
Faversham Two Creeks
Following the course of Faversham Creek and joining the Saxon Shore Way, you and your four legged friend will pass all the busy boatyards servicing the boats that take shelter and moor here. The path runs across the marshes, famed for their distinct wildlife and the flocks of migrating, overwintering and breeding wetland birds that gather along the coast. You can take in the beautiful sights while your pooch sniffs his way along the paths and hunts for squirrels.
