Although restrictions have eased and we are allowed to go out and enjoy life again with our family and loved ones, many of us still enjoy a simple walk in the countryside, wandering around your local area or even venturing to some of your local attractions, especially if you have limited mobility and rely on aids like stair lifts. A recent article by News Motability explains a little more about why many of us love a day out and they reveal 5 of the best dog-friendly days out in the UK.

Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire

Situated in Gloucestershire, there is no better place for a dog walk than Westonbirt Arboretum. Home to 15,000 plant specimens and 2,500 species from across the globe, the Westonbirt Arboretum also offers easily accessible walks, sights and sounds.

Landmark Forest Adventure Park, Inverness-shire

Home to a great selection of dog-friendly and accessible trails for the whole family, Landmark Forest Adventure Park is also home to enormous animatronic dinosaurs, log cabins, exotic flowers and animals. Dogs must be kept on leads but are more than welcome into the park.

Blists Hill Victorian Town, Shropshire

As it explains in the name, Blists Hill Victorian Town is a recreation town and will allow you a sneak peek back to times gone by and experience the 19th century with your dog by your side. Explore the foundry, local pharmacy, sweet shop and much more, a real day out for the whole family.

Scarborough Castle, North Yorkshire

Heading back a little further in history, Scarborough Castle has a huge 3,000 year history and is located in North Yorkshire. The castle and its grounds are the perfect location for a day out with your four-legged friends.

Chawton House, Hampshire

Another historical location, Chawton House is a 19th-century manor and is known for being one of the favourite locations of novelist Jane Austen. A day out here can include peaceful walks through the tranquil flower gardens, a meander through the house and a look at some of the historical features of the location.

If you’re looking for a local walk that is perfect for you and the dog, then hopefully some of these have given you a little inspiration.
