Dog Days Out - Parks, Gardens and Grounds
Walkies in the Woods: a ruff guide! 

All you need to know about walking your dog on Forestry Commission Land: Walkies in the Woods focuses on the physical and mental health benefits of dog walking as part of the Active Woods campaign to promote the healthy living opportunities offered by woodlands.

It is estimated that a dog accompanies at least one third of visitors to the countryside. Through the Walkies in the Woods promotion, Forestry Commission England, supported by the Kennel Club, wants to ensure that dogs and their owners experience healthy, responsible and above all enjoyable woodland visits.

Dog Days Out - Something Different! - Somerset
West Somerset Railway, Mnehead 

The West Somerset Railway recognises that dogs are an important part of family life for many people and that they do not wish their pet(s) to miss out on a day trip to the seaside or into the beautiful Somerset countryside.

The West Somerset Railway welcomes dogs on our trains. We charge a flat rate of £2 for them but if you buy your tickets at the booking offices a special ticket is issued cunningly marked "Dog" so that the four-legged members of the outing know they are not being left out.

We ask that dogs do not travel on seats and must be seated on the carriage floor and that they do not go into the buffet car. We also hope that they bring well-behaved owners!

We are unable to accept dogs on our catering specials.
