Dog Walks In Hampshire

Dog Walks In Hampshire

Highcliffe Castle

2) Sea Point, Bournemouth.  Sea Point is one of the best Dog Friendly beaches in Bournemouth, it's handy to lots of hotels and restaurants where you can stop for refreshments or even have a meal with your dog by your side! The beach is sandy with pebbles on the shore. Dogs must be kept on a lead when walking near the shoreline. There are two designated Poop bag dispensers which are both well used and supplied daily with poop bags.

I love taking Zali on walks at the castle, it is really good exercise for both of us and we get to explore all areas of the castle grounds, it feels like we are away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, This Is Hampshire ( I also really enjoy just having a cup of coffee in the little cafe, Zali always manages to find people willing to talk to her. Although it was historically a small market town noted for its boat building, fine 18th century architecture, and water frontage along the river, Lymington's greatest asset is its beauty.

New Forest

New Forest is a land of rolling hills and quiet bluebell woods in Hampshire. This National Park has wide open spaces perfect for exploring on foot. Throughout the year New Forest holds numerous events and activities like its horse trials, butterfly exhibitions and live music festivals. There are many walking trails for visitors to take advantage of including the Cycle New Forest Events which include rides along the trails. At the mouth of the river there is a suspension bridge which was built in 1834.

Hawley Woods

Hawley Woods is one of the greatest birding locations in Connecticut, but it is also a great place to watch wildlife. It's an area with long standing forests and wetlands along the Pequabuck River and a number of different animals live near there, including bears and coyotes. This makes it a great place for hiking. The trails that you can hike are some of the least crowded in the state, and they're not marked as well as some other places (like Sleeping Giant), which makes them less crowded.

The first time I visited Hawley Woods, I was with my girlfriend. She had grown up there and brought me along on a visit. As we were driving into the grounds, she made a comment that it wasn’t too much to look at from the outside, that it was a lot smaller than I probably expected.  I told her that it didn’t matter.  She knew the place well; she knew why I had wanted to go there.

 The only thing that mattered was inside those trees, what the place had been before everything else. Hawley Woods has been a special place to visit for the past 100 years. Surrounding the campgrounds are miles of hiking trails, 18-mile Little River, the Black River and the Broad River. It is also home to one of the largest families of black bears in North America as well as over 20 types of mammals, 200 types of birds and 25 species of fish.

Old Winchester Hill

Marian, who has been a regular there for quite some time, said: ‘It’s the best place to walk our dogs. It’s really safe for us as it’s not far from our homes but feels like we are in the countryside. ‘There is always something going on at Old Winchester Hill, whether it is a training session with the fire service or police dogs, or seeing groups of people running or playing football. It’s great that the Hampshire Scouts use this space too on a Sunday and it’s all free.

It’s a great addition to the city. Credit: JES. At 500ft above sea level, Winchester Hill offers expansive views of other notable areas such as the cathedral and river Itchen. There is a circular path that runs around the park where dog walkers can allow their animals to run free. The grass is made up of long lush swathes that are not dangerous for the dog to run on. Along with this there are lamp posts and benches where visitors can sit and enjoy the open space.

Old Winchester Hill is a public space in the city of Winchester that is popular with dog walkers and dog owners. It was once an Iron Age fortress, and as such has many interesting historic features and views of its surroundings. The land is now protected as a Nature Reserve, and there are a 150 miles of footpaths to wander along. Old Winchester Hill has a history that is over 1,000 years old. It was once the site of an important battle between Alfred the Great and the Danes where the latter were defeated.

Royal Victoria Country Park

The beautiful Royal Victoria Country Park (RVCP) has it all. Not only is RVCP a popular dog walking and picnic area, it’s also a dog friendly park filled with gorgeous scenery, a varied out door playground for the dogs (indoor and outdoor dog enclosures which can also be hired) and even the occasional celebrity spotting! RVCP has recently hosted stars such as The Vamps, Louise Redknapp, Billie piper etc. Royal Victoria Country Park has so much to offer; it is ideal to visit any time of year, thanks to the park’s sheltered location, with beaches and ponds situated around beautiful lakes.

From spring through summer this is a fantastic spot for fishing and walking, whilst heading over the autumn and winter months you can enjoy ice skating and tobogganing on the park’s lakeside slopes. Since then there have been many skirmishes on the same route and in the area surrounding it as well. Hiking, canoeing, swimming and fishing are all popular activities that help make Hawley Woods State Park so unique. Three major motorways pass through the county.

Hinton Ampner (Dutton Estate Walk)

Hinton Ampner offers a variety of routes around the estate, which ever season you visit you can see the most magnificent colours from the trees and flowers. This walk around Dutton estate is a 4 mile circular trail that takes you on down land with scenic views over the south downs take a moment to appreciate the Hampshire countryside. When you walk around Dutton estate it is totally your choice about which routes which ever season you visit you can see the most magnificent colours from the trees and flowers.

The route is a 4 mile circular trail that takes you on down land with scenic views over the south downs take a moment to appreciate the Hampshire countryside. Hinton Ampner was first recorded in the Domesday Book, and has been home to the Dutton family for over 900 years. The current house, seen here, dates back from 1500 although there is evidence of even earlier manor buildings within the grounds. The site boasts many superb old estate buildings that are listed Grade I or II.

In the summer months the estate boasts wonderful carpets of bluebells and in the winter months a variety of colourful trees are planted. Visit in the spring to admire the rhododendrons or try and catch one of Dutts days in spring when they hold walks that allow you too walk around some of the beautiful gardens. If you are a keen walker you are sure to appreciate Dutton Estate, the former seat of the Knightley family that is now in the hands of National Trust.

This was my favourite walk in Hampshire, and our family walked it on several occasions, taking in spectacular views of both Portsmouth and Southampton. Walkers will be able to enjoy the spectacular scenery at Ludshott Commons, some of it is even common land and part of it is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). This circular woodland walk starts from the Waggoners well car park (grid reference SU914739) you can drive to or a bus and cycle from Guildford.

Farley Mount Country Park

Farely Mount Country park which is also known as Kingswood country Park  is located on Farely Hill. This location has been used for many years with this being the first period being way back in the 14th century with trees, woodland and charcoal being provided to Farnham Castle. It was also used as a site to collect taxes from the people that passed on the road below. The area during the early 19th century was pretty much farmland and had a number of farms that were situated here but these were later demolished to make way for a barracks.

The barracks were built in 1873 during an expansion by the British army. The title of the land was passed on to Hovehill House, St Peter's Church Farely Hill and Cap. Ah yes, the beautiful English countryside. Traditionally used as a backdrop in films to display the intense drama of all sorts of situations, I often wonder how those dramatic scenes would look in real life if not for the help of a Hollywood budget and director.

Cheesefoot Head

When you combine a great coastal walking area with history, you get the Cheesefoot Head Country Park. Unique views that date back hundreds of years ago, plus stunning views out to sea and a fantastic cliff top walk make this one of Kent’s best walking destinations. The headland reaches out into the English Channel at Whitstable Gap and offers an impressive range of landscapes and sights. What is so good about this park is that it is accessed by a narrow road, offering residents easy access to the beaches, while visitors can find on and off-road parking facilities there too.

Head and foot. It’s a kind of rhyme used to remember the order in which you might find things on the human body (by word association), and it works just as well for finding your way around the West Country. In this case, ‘head’ is presumably the headland at Cheesefoot near Box, and ‘foot’ is Chalkfoot a little cove at the foot of Cheesefoot Head. And ‘toe?’ That would be Topsham, where the River Exe converges with tidal water before heading off into the Bristol Channel.

This makes Tuckingmill a sort of middle ground – half way between Topsham and Cheesefoot Head. 9) East Dean Mere Country Park Situated near Chichester in West Sussex, this is a wonderful 37 acre site which offers an ideal picnic spot, fishing lake and bird sanctuary. This is a very relaxing walk as it meanders around the edge of the lake which can be described as 'country park meets tourist potential'(my words not theirs).

Magdalen Hill Down

This is amazing place to visit during the summer especially if the suns out. Not only do you have a butterfly sanctuary but it’s also just simply beautiful. You can walk to the top but there are some steep hills so be prepared to take a lot of breaks. But it’s worth it at the end because at the end you have a great view of Oxford and all it has too offer (it’s another excuse to go into town).

The walk down from the nature reserve can be quite rough on your knees but that is expected due to all the steep hills so I would suggest bring in good shoes because doing it in flip flops will definitely hit your knees hard (bad metaphor but you get what I mean). For anyone interested in butterflies and wildlife then this is a good place to go. it also offers history to WWII and shows interesting facts about the area.

The park is good at helping with conservation of other wildlife as well. It includes a nature trail to walk which goes around the hill. the area is fairly open just be careful for the Butterflies as they are very slow and can fly [for miles]. If you're lucky you might see some wildlife or butterflies on the trail. A nature reserve has so many uses, to name a few it provides education to children and adults, it gives people somewhere quiet and nice to walk through, a place for conservation and wildlife monitoring, a place for local wildlife that needs homes, a place for research for various topics.

The most important thing that this area does is provide everyone peace of mind from the stress of city life. If you're interested in butterflies, this is the place to go. It's situated in the heart of Oxford and it's a nature reserve so it gives you an insight into how nature works. There's also history behind the site as well as during the war it was an American camp. I think it's the best place to visit if you want to see butterflies in abundance.

Magdalen Hill is a nature reserve that has several miles of butterfly conservation. Not only butterflies it has a wide variety of wildlife to look out for such as moths and plants too. It also provides some history as well as in the Second World War it was an American camp. The site also has two five-a-side football pitches if youre wanting to get busy with your loved one or just fancy introducing them to your local team.
