Somerset - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

Somerset - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

by: Roger Evans
On a fine day there is nothing quite so enjoyable for dog owners than getting out into the countryside with your pet for a leisurely walk. Once you get off your home patch though, it is hard to know where you can walk safely with your dog and which pubs and cafes will welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 circular walks, varying in length between 1.75 and 5.5 miles, in Somerset's beautiful countryside. There are walks the open moorland of Exmoor and the Quantocks; over the Mendip and Blackdown Hills; through quiet valleys and ancient woodland; beside rivers, lakes and canals; and along wide sandy beaches.

All the walks include details of how to get to the start; distance and terrain, dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog-friendly refreshment stops, numbered route directions plus clear sketch maps, points of interest along the way and nearest veterinary practice. There are numerous colour photographs.
