best british dog walks

As you know I love my dogs and am always looking for new adventures with them.
I have asked my favourite bloggers to tell us about there favourite places to walk their fur baby.

First up Chris from morelifeinyourdays.com
Dartmouth is a pretty little town on the River Dart in South Devon. It must be one of the most charming towns in the UK and makes a great place for a holiday or day trip.
If you visit with your dog you will be spoilt for choice when looking for somewhere to walk with your furry friend.
Our top recommendation in Dartmouth would be to head out from the town towards the castle at the mouth of the river. It is about half an hours walk and you will pass plenty of interesting sites along the way like Bayards Cove, Warfleet Creek and the old pottery.
Once you reach the castle you can soak in the views out to sea whilst your dog soaks in the sea at the tiny, dog-friendly, Castle Cove beach.  
If you fancy a longer walk then keep going along the coast path for a more rugged walking experience with even better views of the rocky coastline. You can loop back to the town or continue on to Stoke Fleming for a tasty lunch in the Green Dragon.

Snowdonia is home to many beautiful walks to enjoy with your pup, but none is more tantalising than hiking to the summit of Mt Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales. It’s a great adventure to undertake with your dog, and on the day I hiked to the summit many others had joined their owners. Although none of the other dogs had legs quite as short as my own, my Miniature Dachshund, Schnitzel. Not that his determination was lacking, and there were just a handful of spots where I gave him a handy lift up large steps.

There are multiple routes that you can choose to use to ascend to the summit of Mt Snowdon. We hiked up the Pyg trail, then returned by the Miner's Track, one of the shorter routes on offer. However, it was quite rough underfoot, and I’d recommend considering the Llanberis Path, which is longer but easier going.

At the summit, dogs are not unfortunately allowed inside of the cafe. Instead, we had to make to with sheltering in the doorway, while we went in one at a time to buy a warm pie. And feel proud that we’d gotten to the top with our own two or four feet, rather than on the train!

Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire. What more could I say?
The over 3,800 acres of beautiful natural woodland beckons me and my Collie every weekend.  I enjoy taking relaxing walks through the fields and woodlands of the historic country park. The views over the lake are breathtaking and my collie seems to get it too!
In some areas of the park, dogs are allowed off the lead.
After a few hours of exploring the park, we usually stop by Central Bark, the dog-friendly cafĂ© in Clumber Park.  I love sitting outside as my collie keeps busy with the water bowls.
If your dog is tired from all the walking, you can go indoors to let him rest or nap in designated areas. There’s also plenty of toys for the dog to play with if he’s still got some energy.

Hengistbury Head in Dorset is a great place to walk with your dog. The big attraction for us is the year round dog friendly beach, but if that’s not your idea of a good walk then you can also walk along the shady forest paths between Hengistbury Head visitor centre and Mudeford Spit.

There is ample parking which is great value out of peak season, a cafe as you arrive at Hengistbury and also a lovely cafe at Mudeford Spit, both of which are friendly towards dogs.

The scenery alone is worth the visit, with views of Christchurch Priory in the distance, and if you walk to the top of the head you can see for miles across the English Channel.
