Home to Palladian House, tour furry friends will have lots of fun running around the grounds, following their nose with all the exciting new smells. There is even a dog friendly children’s area play area if you bring the kids!
If you are happy to travel a bit further afield to walk a dog in Swindon, Barbury Castle is the place to go. A good 2 hour walk of chalk grassland and the iron-age hillfort, why not make a day of it and find a country pub to stop off at after. Dogs can be walked off-lead up until the last field where there is grazing cattle!
