Despite the barren landscape there may be sheep around, but otherwise it's ideal for dogs.
Alderley Edge, Cheshire
Spot and take a breather here, with a view fest across Cheshire and to the Peak District. Pick your day carefully for best results.It's a National Trust site, so parking charges apply for non-members.

A coastal path walk with fine views over Aberffraw beach, and access to one side of the beach for swimming too.
Alvaston Park, Derbyshire
Fabulous forest walking for dogs, and a cheerful community of dog walkers too.

Barnwell Country Park, Cambridgeshire
One of several country parks along the route of the River Nene, where everyone can find something pleasurable to do.

A Stratford Canal walk, Warwickshire
A there and back walk along the rural Stratford canal with the chance to visit the craft centre at Wootton at the turn around point.

The park has been made out of dozens of quarries, now filled with water and joined by footpaths, rivers and canals.
Some consideration needed to keep dogs on leads in the bird nesting areas, but loads of space for off lead bounding as well.

A gloriously sheep and stile-free walk in an ancient forest that's now part of the Pembrokeshire national park.
