Doggy days out
Every dog-friendly holiday starts with the same question: where should you take the pup for a walk? We round up our favourite trails


Known for: A naturelover’s paradise

Nestled in the picturesque market town of Conwy, the historic Bodnant Gardens are home to hundreds of native and exotic trees, which burn bright with scarlets and oranges during the autumn.

Collect a Champion Tree leaflet for a self-led trail or join a guided autumn colour walk, where you’ll pass towering conifers from America and cherries from Asia. With 80 acres to explore, from formal gardens to wild meadows, this is a special way to spend a day, however able you are.

Pets are very welcome year-round, with ‘Wag Wednesday’ evening walkies taking place in high season (from April through to late September). In fact, short leads and poo bags are available to borrow free-of-charge from the visitor welcome centre, just in case you forget anything.

For wilder walks, you can also visit neighbouring Parc Farm on the Great Orme in Llandudno with your dog. The footpaths are open from June to December, with a polite request to keep pooches on leads for the safety of the livestock.
