The owners of Pitmaston House understand that your pet pooch is an important part of the family so they’re happy to accept two well behaved dogs. That’s good news because it means you don’t have the bother of arranging dogsitters or taking your furry friend to kennels whilst you’re away. You can bring him along and he can be part of the fun; the chances are that little tail just won’t stop wagging! There’s plenty of room in the garden for you to have a game of catch and to run about with your pet, and right behind the house is Pitmaston Park, handy for those early morning strolls. In fact, there’s no shortage of great places for walkies in Worcester; you’ll find several dog friendly parks and gardens, like Gheluvelt, Cripplegate, and Fort Royal Park. There are also eight Local Nature Reserves, peaceful green spaces within the city where you can have a good amble and enjoy the scenery; Perry Wood, Gorse Hill and Elbury Mount, and Ronkswood Hill Meadows are all good for a stroll and whilst you’re at it, you might want to stop for a picnic too.
Enjoy a strutt with your mutt along the river or canal, taking in views of the city and cathedral, and the Malvern Hills beyond. If you find yourselves in need of refreshments, panic not! There are plenty of places to eat where dogs are positively welcomed, including The Anchor Inn & Boathouse, The Cardinal’s Hat and the Clockwatchers Coffee House and Bistro.
If you want to venture out for the afternoon, put your pooch in the car and head to those beautiful Malvern Hills where you’ll have miles and miles of glorious countryside to explore, with footpaths, bridleways and lanes to walk. Croome Park is good too, with lots of routes to follow in typically English parkland that has a big lake, temples and follies. If you’re at Pitmaston House in the autumn no doubt a walk in the woods will appeal, so go to Worcester Woods Country Park. It’s a good one for families as there are two play areas and a café, and of course, in the springtime when the bluebells are out, it’s a sight to behold.
