Great Walks For Dogs & Kids Around Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire
We are lucky to live in the countryside so there are plenty of woodlands, river walks and bridleways to explore nearby. One popular walk is along parts of the Nene Way – follow the river across three counties of Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire (over 100 miles in total). Full list of our favourite walks is below.
During the Summer months, after picking up the girls from school, we can often squeeze a quick trip to the river and let the dogs cool down in the late afternoon sun. At this time of the year we are all adjusting to the dark nights and colder temperatures yet Family T like nothing better than to close the curtains, light a fire and snuggle up with our furry companions. A fireplace without a couple of dogs stretched out in front of the hearth just wouldn’t seem right.
