Earlier this year we published a post about dog walks in Oxfordshire. It’s been so popular we’ve decided to share with you some more of our favourite doggy hangouts for best walks in Oxfordshire
- The Wittenham Clumps are one of South Oxfordshire’s well-loved landmarks. Steeped in history and brimming with wildlife, these hilltops are great to explore with your dog as long as they’re kept on a lead. You can also stroll down to nearby Little Wittenham Wood.
- Foxburrow Wood in Witney is the Wychwood Forest’s largest community woodland. Over 10,000 trees and shrubs have been planted to help benefit local wildlife and the landscape. Dogs are welcome as long as you keep them under close control for one of our best walks in Oxfordshire
- Radley Lakes has lots of different areas you can walk around. A great wildlife haven; kingfishers have been spotted here by some. Beware, it can get pretty muddy if it’s been raining so wellies and a big towel for your four-legged friend will be needed!
- If you fancy a walk by the canal, Thrupp has a circular walk starting at Annie’s tea room. The walk does take you over quite a number of stiles and through fields with livestock but it’s a lovely way to explore the River Cherwell and see some beautiful narrowboats, many of which are also occupied by dogs!
- So technically this one is in Buckinghamshire but only just! Bernwood Meadows, owned and managed by BBOWT, is a wonderful nature reserve. The Forestry Commission has a butterfly trail signposted from the far end of the reserve. The trail takes you around the forest and is a fantastic opportunity for your dog to really burn off some energy!
Don’t forget, after a long countryside best walk in Oxfordshire, you can give yourself (or your furry friend!) a little pampering to help with any dry hands, sore feet or chapped lips (or sore paws!) – check out our natural beeswax skincare here (and for each product you buy, we donate to BBOWT (the Bucks, Berks and Oxon Wildlife Trust – With your help, we’ve planted a wildflower meadow and have donated a further £500 this year already 🙂 )
