We recently visited Woodchester park with our dog, it's a lovely location with various trails to follow from easy to challenging. Your dog can be off the lead as long as you can control it, but must be on the lead when near livestock.

Lovely family walks. Well maintained tracks. Some very muddy parts. Springs close to the paths. The longest route (purple) includes some long steep slopes. There are some junctions missing signage which is a shame. We didn't realise the mansion and tea rooms would be shut...More

Choice of 3 marked trails of different lengths in and around a beautiful wooded valley with lakes at the bottom. Went at lambing time and the Jacobs sheep lambs bleating in the spring sunshine was a great accompaniment to the bird song in the woods....More
