Is there anything better than spending time in the great outdoors with your dog? There aren’t many things we can think of that beat it! To celebrate our brand new TV advert, we asked our Harringtons Facebook fans to share the best views they’ve uncovered while out walking their dog, and they didn’t disappoint! You can check them out here.
For even more inspiration, we’ve listed five of the top dog friendly spots across the UK where you can spend quality time with your pet and enjoy amazing, picturesque views perfect for sharing with your fellow dog-loving friends.
1. North York Moors, Yorkshire
Covering an area of over 500 square miles, the North York Moors is a huge national park containing numerous walks across moorland, forests and the coast. For stunning views across the Cleveland plain, the Clay Bank and Greenhow Plantation walk is a dog-friendly trail without stiles and a low chance of encountering livestock.
2. Studland Beach, Dorset
Nestled on the Dorset coast, Studland Beach is a National Trust managed beach that welcomes dogs all year round, but allows lead-free roaming between October and April. Discover stunning coastal views and treat yourself to a stop at the dog-friendly Knoll Beach Café which has shelters, water bowls, dog ties and plenty of shade for sunnier days.
3. Low Force To High Force, Durham
Be wowed by not one but two waterfalls on the walk along the river Tees near Durham. Starting from the Bowlees Visitor Centre, the walk along the river takes in both the High and Low Force waterfalls, as well as plenty of countryside views. Don’t forget to take some change with you to access the walk down to the bottom of the High Force waterfall (Admission is £1.50 per adult).
4. Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire
Proving you don’t need to go up high or to the water’s edge to enjoy breathtaking views on your next dog walk, the Westonbirt Arboretum offers beautiful scenery through the forest. Try visiting in autumn when the trees are at their most colourful. The Silk Wood covers two thirds of the park and is a doggy-welcome zone.
5. Eglinton Country Park, Ayrshire
Eglinton Country Park near the coast of Ayrshire is a gorgeous setting for walking your dog if you live north of the Scottish border. The park features garden walks and has plenty of grassy areas for dogs to run around freely. Enjoy the views of the loch from the top of Belvedere Hill or climb Cairnmount Hill for an alternative vista.
