Don’t just take your dog for a walk, take your dog for one of Britain’s 100 best dog walks thanks to a newly-published book which lists the top routes for you and your pooch.

Supported by the National Trust, Great British Walkies includes the NT’s ‘pawprint rating’ system for dog-friendly places.

It features some of the best dog walks with breath-taking views that aren’t too challenging, from two to six miles in length, with suggested stops along the way.

The range of country routes covers the whole of the UK, including some of our most beautiful woods, coast, rolling hills and fields, not to mention fascinating and inspiring historic sites.

For each of the best dog walks, there’s a map and comprehensive directions, plus information on whether and where a lead is needed and suggestions for dog-friendly refreshment stops and accommodation nearby.

Jen and Sim Benson are outdoor specialists who are joined by their two children and a spaniel in their adventures. Their previous books include Amazing Family Adventures, Short Runs in Beautiful Places and Wild Running.

Great British Walkies, by Jen and Sim Benson, is published by National Trust Books in hardback, priced £14.99.
