Some great dog walks around Frome, Radstock and Warminster.  

1.Heavens Gate

A great walk with wonderful views over the Longleat Estate and Frome. There are nice shady parts in the forest for the warmer days. It’s quite a flat, pathed walk so not to stretching if you want an easier route which is also good for wheelchairs and buggies. It’s fairly popular with dog owners and walkers on nice weekends. There is free parking as well

2.Shearwater Lake

Beautiful lakeside walk which can be extended into woods and hills if you would like. The walk around the lake is mostly flat and wheelchair and buggy friendly. Dogs should be kept on the lead and any mess (as in all the listed places!) taken home or disposed off in an appropriate bin.

3. Colliers Way

A gorgeous 25 mile disused railway link between Radstock and Frome suitable for walking with buggies and wheelchairs as well. It can get very popular with cyclists and horse riders too so keep doggies close by to ensure their safety. There are plenty of attractions along the route and some lovely places for a refreshment or two!

4. Mells

There are plenty of fields and woodland in the area suitable for some beautiful walks. A popular one follows a river. The walks are mostly flat so not too strenuous. 

5. Harridge Woods

Is a beautiful nature reserve close to Nettlebridge. The reserve is made up for five sections so there are plenty of different walks within the Woods to choose from. There are pleasant streams for dogs to cool off in on warmer days and stunning views from the higher parts of the walks. There are a variety of species of wildlife here including threatened species such as Dormice so it is really important to keep dogs under control at all times when visiting. 

We are very lucky to have such beautiful countryside for us and our dogs to enjoy!
