Can’t bear those sad puppy dog eyes and the tail between the legs? Then bring your pet pooch to the House on the Hill – he’s more than welcome, as long as he’s well behaved and doesn’t jump all over the furniture! And oh boy, what a great time he’ll have! Walks galore, right from the doorstep, on footpaths, bridleways and narrow lanes, with the whole of the beautiful Chalke Valley (AONB) to explore. You can go down to the village and walk from the The Horseshoe Inn to Bowerchalke, or go over to Broadchalke and walk from The Queen’s Head to Fifield Bavant; there in the field is the second smallest church in England, dating back to the 13th century.
Of course, there’s nothing to stop you taking your furry friend out with you for the day – perhaps to the Jurassic coast where he can enjoy a walk on the cliffs and play on the shingle beach at Durdle Door or Lulworth Cove. You could even venture over to the New Forest where you’ll find woodland tracks to walk and miles and miles of open heathland to explore.
