Today’s blog is all about our favourite dog walks in Gloucestershire, including our favourite — Westonbirt Arboretum.
Westonbirt Arboretum is a beautiful place and is a popular dog walking spot. Westonbirt has a range of trees from around the world, making it a unique place to enjoy a dog walk. When you arrive at Westonbirt you will be greeted by the friendly staff and you will be required to pay for entry. Prices can be found here.
The park itself is very scenic with various routes to take. Some are shorter and others are longer. In the winter, the routes can get quite muddy so bring wellies and prepare for your dog to get very muddy! This dog walk is also great in the autumn when the weather is calmer and the trees show an array of colourful leaves. There are numerous amounts of dog bins on site and water bowls. After the walk, there is a café to get a refreshment before heading home.
Broadway Tower is a circular dog walk in the Cotswolds. However, the walk starts in Broadway village so there is an incline before reaching the Broadway Tower. Broadway Tower stands on Beacon Hill, which is the second highest point in the Cotswolds. The tower itself is 65 feet (20 metres) high and has spectacular views of the Cotswolds. This dog walk is definitely worth the view and has an incline for a more challenging walk.
Side note: Near the carpark are a couple of ice cream vans so perhaps consider buying yourself and your dog(s) a vanilla ice cream cone.
This park is very beautiful and is in the Forest of Dean. It is primarily a woodland area but does have an area for your dog to take a dip and swim. If your dog is a water dog this is a walk to try. After the walk, there is a café nearby to grab a snack.
