Tewkesbury Area

The Paws4Rest chief editor at work

The Editor Says: Although the fantastic Cotswold Way passes just to the west of Stroud, there’s much more to this neck-of-the-woods than just the famous National Trail. After all, the National Trust have several dog friendly sites in the vicinity including Woodchester Park, Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons, Haresfield Beacon and Standish Wood. In fact, there are hundreds of paths and tracks all over the area so you’ll only be a biscuit’s throw from somewhere great to have a snuffle about wherever you stay.
