Walking the dog at West Runton and Beeston Regis Heath

Dog on lead

If you’re planning on visiting West Runton and Beeston Regis Heath with your dog, you’ll be pleased to know it’s very welcome! Whatever the weather, whatever the time of year, this is a great place to take you dog for a walk.

Follow our lead

We are currently asking for all dogs to remain on leads throughout the heaths and woodland. This is to help ensure social distancing and to protect our wildlife.

Please be aware that there is a possibility of adders being present between February and November.

Whether you walk on the heaths or in the woods, you and your dog will have a teriffic time exploring and finding new things to see and (paricularly in the case of your dog) smell!

But we do ask for your help to keep this place special by following our canine code.

Our canine code

We’ve teamed up with Forthglade to create this canine code, so you and your four-legged friend can help care for the places you love:

Take the lead: help reduce the chance of your pup disturbing wildlife by keeping them on a lead.

Scoop that poop: bag it and bin it to keep your favourite places beautiful. 

Paws for thought: look out for information signs and take extra care on cliff paths.

Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by.

Everyone knows how unpleasant dog mess is, so please help ensure West Runton and Beeston Regis Heath​ remains a beautiful place by bagging it and binning it. You’ll find bins sited along the main path and in the main car park, or feel free to take any waste home with you and dispose of it there.

But most of all, make sure that you and your dog have a wonderful time. Drink in the anazing views and enjoy the wildlife and the wild flowers.
