Three Scenic Dog Walking Spots in Wiltshire

If you’re planning on bringing your four-legged friend away with you, then you’re in the right place. Our dog-friendly Wiltshire accommodation has everything you need to enjoy a getaway – read on for some great suggestions of the best places to soak up the Wiltshire countryside with your furry companion.

Heaven’s Gate

From the Nockatt Coppice car park the footpath leads up through a picturesque woodland to the aptly-named Heaven’s Gate, which boasts magnificent views over Longleat Estate and the surrounding Wiltshire landscape. For those looking to extend their walk, slightly east is the gorgeous Shearwater Lake – a lovely place for a picnic.

Cherhill Downs

A circular walk up and around the Cherhill downs will reward you with great views over the valleys and hills. You’ll also get the chance to see the iconic Cherhill White Horse which is the second oldest in Wiltshire, having been cut in 1780.

Old Sarum

This prestigious iron-age fort was the original location of Salisbury, 2 miles from where the city now stands. Dogs are welcome inside the castle on leads and the outer bailey is a very popular dog-walking area too with fantastic views of Salisbury and surrounding areas.
