Dog walking in the Midlands

We know your four legged friends are part of the family, so why not bring them along on your family day out? We love seeing them enjoying outdoor places across the Midlands. The houses and some gardens in our care are only for humans, however we look after acres and acres of space where well behaved dogs are very welcome, and we'll even supply your dogs with a well deserved drink. Assistance dogs are more widely admitted, so please check with individual places for more details.
