Doggie Paradise walks right on our doorstep…
Only a few miles from Cardiff situated within the beautiful Victorian town of Penarth where Woodland Walkies is based is Cosmeston lakes.
Cosmeston Lakes is one of the finest country parks in South Wales and has recently been designated with local nature reserve status. We are lucky enough to walk straight out of our front door into the beauty of Cossy ( as the locals call it )
With a number of beautiful rural walks to choose from within our catchment area, we will often vary where we go to provide as stimulating a walk as possible for our regular walkees. The choice of route is also dependent on the weather and on hot, dry days we will always seek out the shade and cool of a woodland or river walk.
The fantastic doggie walks with stunning tranquility set in more than 200 acres of unspoilt Countryside centered around a series of lakes , ancient woodland walks and natural beauty is simply the perfect place for dogs to enjoy themselves
With so many excellent local walking routes, Woodland Walkies in Penarth is the perfect location for your dog to explore the beauty of nature and enjoy the outdoors within a safe environment.
No one likes being cooped up at home all day least of all dogs. A dog needs mental and physical play stimulation and loves to socialise with other dogs.
