Travelling a little further up north to the land of Derbyshire, the canal is considered by far to be one of England’s most scenic waterways, which makes it also a great place to walk your four legged friend! With establishments such as pubs and cafe’s along the way, there are various chances to pause and refuel the tanks for another leg of the beautiful journey.

Planted just a few miles from Sheffield, in the heart of South Yorkshire, Worsbrough is an idyllic place to visit if you are wanting to walk your dog amongst some of the best natural scenery that nature can provide. With a palate of water life, the reservoir is also teeming with fish that are ready to be caught if you remember to take your rod with you. Also home to the Worsbrough Mill Museum, the park is a great base for the Trans Pennine Trail if you think of straying elsewhere into the Yorkshire countryside.
Nestled just to the South East of Aberystwyth, Black Covert Woods offers a spectacular mix of woodland, streams and fields; not to mention the odd otter. Starting from the picnic area you will find two walkways leading out that will take you to some of the most stunning woodland in the whole of Wales. If you fancy a walk in late spring, the riverside walk offers a palate of bluebells that are in bloom during late April and early June.
