1. Ross-on-Wye Circular Walks

The historic town of Ross-on-Wye is a short 10 minute walk from Broadmeadow and from here you and your pooch can set off on a variety of fabulous circular walks. The town is edged by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the ancient Forest of Dean as a back drop and the beautiful River Wye running through it. As such, we guarantee whichever walk you choose, it will be full of natural wonders including kingfishers, majestic trees and winding riverbanks.

You can find some circular routes in the area here.

2. Symonds Yat

Symonds Yat is a sleepy little village in the Wye Valley from where you can set off and enjoy numerous walks through woodlands, along the River Wye as well as up the steep hill from where you can marvel at the incredible views. We have suggested a circular walk which is mainly flat, ideal for those walking with dogs and children, and follows the River Wye starting from and ending at Symonds Yat East. The village itself is home to a couple of dog-friendly pubs, perfect for refreshing and putting tired feet and paws up at the end of your walk.

3. Walk along the River Wye

No visit to the area would be complete without a dog walk in Ross-on-Wye focused on the River Wye. Aside from being incredibly pretty, the river boasts a rich history which can be admired even whilst strolling the river banks. Set off from Ross-on-Wye when the river level is low and you’ll be well rewarded with beautiful scenery! Dog-friendly cafes, pubs and restaurants are plentiful so this particular walk makes for a leisurely few hours out.

4. Coppett Hill

Offering some of the best views in the local area, the prominent Coppett Hill is set in 98 hectares of a local nature reserve, one of the largest in Herefordshire. Spring sees scores of bluebells cover the hillsides whilst autumn is a magical kaleidoscope of oranges, browns and reds. There are ancient woodlands, lime kilns, rocky sandstone outcrops, the river and hillsides to roam which makes it one of our top dog walks in Ross-on-Wye.
