Get out with your dog this Easter bank holiday


Written by: Jodie Lindop

Going out for a walk with your dog is that special time of day to bond and explore with your favourite companion. It’s a chance to step away from the daily chores and everything else that is going on in the world, as well as getting in that all important exercise. It’s just you, your dog and the great outdoors.

With Easter on the way brings the addition of a long weekend. Here are some of our Orvis Dogs’ favourite walks for you and your dog to try out this Easter weekend.

Salisbury Plain

This fivesome’s favourite walk is Salisbury Plain. It is located approximately 12 miles north of Salisbury, sitting within the heart of Wiltshire.

Salisbury Plain provides wide access for walking (it’s bigger than the whole of the Isle of Wight!) It also provides stunning views for dog walkers to enjoy.

Micheldever Wood

One of Cherry’s favourite walks is Micheldever Wood. It is located approximately 6 miles north of the city of Winchester, Hampshire.

According to Forestry Commission England:
“Micheldever Wood is a large maturing beech wood with some areas of mature conifer and a stunning bluebell display in the spring.”

Samphire Hoe Country Park

One of Dalton’s favourite walks is Samphire Hoe Country Park in Kent.

According to Eurotunnel “Samphire Hoe covers a 30-hectare site at the foot of the famous Shakespeare Cliff, between Dover and Folkestone (Kent).”

Samphire Hoe is a country park which runs along the seafront. There’s about a mile of sea wall to walk along, which is fantastic when it’s really stormy. Walkers can enjoy the impact of the sea waves as they crash really high. At the end of the sea wall there is a beautiful pebbled beach with some bigger black rocks and beautiful white chalk cliffs behind them.

Chesil Beach and Studland Heath

Mount Snowdon
