Dog Walks In Nottingham, Our 5 Favourites
One thing we love here at Pretty Pup is taking the hassle out of finding great places to walk your dog and with Nottinghamshire being so close to our headquarters, it only seems fair to list our 5 favourite dog walks in Nottingham. We have tried to pick dog walks which we think will suit everybody within the area whether this means it does or doesn’t end up in a pub.
Wollaton Hall Dog Walking (No 5)
Wollaton Hall is based at the following postcode NG8 2AE in Wollaton, Nottingham, you can park here for a daily fee of £5.00.
The grounds of Wollaton Hall are vast and allow for plenty of room which you can walk your dog on or off the lead (bare in mind you can’t let your dog off in the fenced area as this is where the deer graze). Adding to the bonus of Wollaton Hall there is also a lake where your dogs can benefit from a swim should this be their bag! Just try and avoid the areas with water Fowl.
Dogs aren’t welcome in the house (for obvious reasons) however you can also benefit from a wander through their stunning greenhouse which we definitely love.
Car Colston Dog Walks (No 4)
Car Colston offers a great 3 and a half mile countryside circular walk which starts and ends at the 18th Century Royal Oak Pub which benefits from one of the largest greens which the country has to offer.
Soak in the ambience of the beautiful country side and escape the hustle and bustle offered from the centre of Nottingham. We recommend keeping your dog on a lead for this walk as it is close to the road side however don’t let this put you off as the surroundings are truly beautiful.
Attenborough Nature Reserve (No 3)
The Attenborough Nature Reserve is one of our favourite dog walks in Nottingham. It offers miles upon miles of good paths for you to walk your dog along while taking in the beauty of the reserve. They have on site facilities such as a tea room however you aren’t permitted to bring your dog into here.
As far as we are aware, dogs are required to be on a lead but we aren’t certain towards whether this is within the whole reserve or just parts of it. You can find the Attenborough nature reserve at Nottingham, NG9 6DY.
Grantham Canal Dog Walking (No 2)
Spanning through 33 miles of canal side and 18 locks Grantham Canal stretches all the way from West Bridgeford right through to the town of Grantham in Lincolnshire. This place really is amazing for dog walkers of all breeds as you can go as little or as far as you like.
There are pubs available on the walk, the main one being The Dirty Duck which is around 9 miles out of Grantham and is also dog friendly making it a perfect stop of if you were looking at making a day of your walk.
Boat trips are also available down the Canal and it boasts multiple entrances allowing you to split up your dog walk should you not be willing to tackle 33 miles in one sitting (that being most of us!).
Sherwood Pines, Edwinstowe (No 1)
This beautiful park in the heart of Sherwood Forest really is not only a beautiful place to walk your dog, but also to take your family. Boasting over 3300 acres of forest you really can return to this destination and not cover the same tracks you did on the previous occasions.
Walks to give a try would be their popular waymarked walks however if you are willing to go off the beaten track you can venture deeper into the forest and make your own way with your dog.
The park is easily accessible with loads of parking readily available. They also have a cafe with a terrace, Snack Kiosk & Picnic area making it the perfect location for a full day not only for a dog walk.
The above concludes of our list of top 5 dog walks in Nottingham, we hope you have enjoyed reading and would love to know your thoughts! We welcome reviews from everybody and are always open to adding to our list.
