Filled with a variety of woodland trails - there is lots here to keep an energetic pup entertained. Follow the river where your dog can have a cool down or a drink and take in the beautiful scenery. Most routes are flat so this is a good walk for a Sunday afternoon, don’t forget to stop off at the dog friendly cafe near the car park for a well earnt coffee and slice of cake.
