Batsford, Gloucestershire, England
Fantastic in the autumn
This 59 acre arboretum is a must visit place at this time of year. Dogs are allowed on short leads and it is great to spend a couple of hours wandering around and marvelling at the trees which are amazing at this time of year. Excellent exercise for both us and the dog and stunning views over the countryside. Lots of parking. Could have done with slightly better catering options (takeaway in the car park) but that’s the (Covid) times we live in I guess.
Pershore, Worcestershire, England
A gem in the heart of Pershore
At the top of Pershore high street, a very dog friendly pub where our dog enjoyed a a large dog biscuit and a cuddle from one of the staff. Dogs are allowed in the bar area where there was plenty of room for him (helped no doubt by the Covid restrictions). Service was very friendly and the food excellent. There was a large menu with daily specials and the curry was particularly good. The dog enjoyed some of the fish from my fish and chips too!
