3 Amazing places to enjoy a dog walk around Bournemouth

With the beach and a variety of stunning woodland on our doorstep, Bournemouth and the surrounding areas are the ideal places for a dog walk. Treat your pup to a walking weekend away in Dorset by staying at Brooklands Hotel, a dog friendly hotel in Bournemouth and exploring these beautiful locations:

Branksome Dene Chine, Poolebranksome-dene-chine-poole-brooklands

Perfect for the cross-country doggy, the walk along the hill of dog–friendly Branksome Dene beach is full of rough ground, slopes and steps. The stunning area encompasses narrow, wooded valleys with steep sides and amazing views across the sea and beach. Take the steps down to the seafront promenade and let your pup roam free thanks to the all year round dog exercise area. Relax at the end of an active day out by staying at our dog friendly hotel in Bournemouth and wake up to a delicious cooked breakfast.

Canford Heath Nature Reserve, Poole

With 850 acres of beautiful woodland (the equivalent of 532 Wembley Stadiums), Canford Heath is one Dorset’s largest areas of heath. Walk up to the ridge of the heath for panoramic views across Poole Harbour or spy Shetland cattle grazing in the nature reserve. Ideal for bigger pups who never tire of long walks, grab your walking boots from your dog friendly hotel in Bournemouth like Brooklands Hotel and set off in the morning to watch the sun rise.

Delph Woods

If you’ve got a furry friend who’s an avid explorer, Delph Woods is the ideal dog walk with unsurfaced woodland paths, shallow streams, quaint footbridges and large grassy areas. Dogs are allowed off the lead most days, and can roam amongst the remarkable trees and wildlife. 2 minutes walk from the woodland car park is the dog activity area with weaving poles, hurdles and a ramp – and if that isn’t enough, the trail leads onto Castleman Trailway to extend the walk further.
