Bunbury's largest park is a must-see for those looking to get out with the family or dog. This is a great place for the kids to play games in the open space or to kill some energy on the playground. In the meantime, the fields are perfect for a game of fetch, or you and your pup can enjoy a quieter stroll along the riverbank or canal. If you're by the river, you can even give your pup a quick dip.

You can easily take short walks with ball games and doggy paddles, or take a lap around the great park and extend your trail along the canal towpath. Spiceball Country Park is in the heart of Banbury, so it's easily accessible on foot from the station or by local bus. You are also just a few steps away from the town's many cafés. Cafe Nero, Cafe Venato and Pinto Lounge are all dog-friendly and ideal for drinks and cakes.

A pleasant walk through the countryside surrounding Cropready is perfect for blowing away the cobwebs and enjoying a few hours outdoors with your furry friend. You'll start at the Red Lion Inn, so if you park your car there, be sure to step in as a patron before or after your walk.

Canals and country lanes stretch along rolling open countryside and farmland. There are two historical battle areas on this trail, so the historians among you will have a lot to discover. You can also catch a glimpse among the trees of the stately Edgcote House, restored after a fire a few years ago.

On your walk you pass Waddington and Chipping Woden, another charming market town, where you can stop to see the local amenities. Obviously you'll need to let your dog get ahead along driveways and in the countryside, but there are plenty of opportunities to run free in the fields.

banbury edge

No, this is not an arts festival, but a circular walk around the city fringes of Bunbury and some nearby countryside. It's an easy walk, but we'd class it as moderate due to the length of the route. However, you can easily choose smaller sections to explore to better suit your abilities.

Looking inward from this walk, you'll have stunning views of Banbury, but looking in the other direction, you'll see the Oxfordshire countryside. You should start at the Spiceball Park Sports Center or Castle Quay car park and follow the signposted path clockwise, but there are other starting points available.

You'll pass the Barley Mow Pub halfway through the route, but you have to sit outside with the dog. Plus, in Bunbury town center you can visit more dog-friendly places to visit before or after your walk, such as the Pinto Lounge, Dog and Gun or Ye Olde Reindeer.

Swalcliffe to Tadmarton Heath

15 Blissful Dog Walks in Banbury (11)15 Blissful Dog Walks in Banbury (12)

You and your pup will enjoy relaxing walks in the Oxfordshire countryside. You'll enjoy beautiful views of the open fields, where bright yellow flaxseeds bloom in summer. Part of the walk follows the old Roman road and the Swalcliffe Lea, with its ponds and streams. You can let your pup have a paddle, but that's close to the start of the walk, so if your dog decides to go for a swim, make sure your dog doesn't get cold the rest of the way.

You certainly won't mind passing through villages on this walk, as they are all pretty little villages made mostly of local stone. Otherwise, this gem of a walk is in lush Oxfordshire pastures, with views across fields to some small hills beyond. Stags Head in Swalcliffe, just opposite the church, serves good food including some Greek specialties and is well worth a visit.

rolling stone

It takes around 25 minutes by car to reach the stones, but it's well worth the visit to these ancient monuments and the walk through the Chiltern Hills AONB. Your pup will love playing on the rolling pastures while you sniff out the Rollright Stones. (We accidentally called it the Rolling Stones at least once!)

Three ancient stone features can be found on this trail. The King's Rock, a standing stone thought to mark a Bronze Age burial ground, you can see barrows and cairns nearby. Then there is the older King's Men Stone Circle. Finally, a few hundred yards away, 1,000 years old, are the Order of Whispering Knights. Knights mark an ancient burial chamber and one of the oldest burial monuments in Britain. They add a touch of mystery to this beautiful walk through the countryside.

For those who require accessible walking, there are two shorter routes on short lawns around all the stones. The Salford Inn near the start and end of the track is child- and pet-friendly, so you and your dog are welcome to stop in for a snack.

There are also a few points that allow you to take a shortcut back to the village should you need to.

This is a puppy place for people and dogs for a dog walk in Banbury. Stroll across the floodplains, past three distinct water features: the Oxford Canal, the Cherwell River and the lochs as part of the flood defenses. Pups will undoubtedly be thrilled to be dog paddling here, just make sure they don't dive into the canal. Instead, keep swimming in rivers or lakes.

In warmer weather, be aware that blue-green algae, which can be poisonous, were found in the lake last summer. If the lake blooms again, there will be clear warning signs. Otherwise, fast dog paddling is safe.

You can park near the retail park and take a footpath to Chacombe from the side of the M&S. Once you reach the river, just follow it. If it has been raining heavily, this trail may be avoided as it is prone to flooding. There are several food stores in the retail park, but your pup will need to stay outside.

King’s Sutton and its surrounds are great for dog walking, with beautiful countryside and good work from local landowners and council footpath rangers. One of the prettiest walks is the slow walk along the Oxford Canals, where you follow the waterways through peaceful fields.

The route starts at Twyford Wharf, but we thought it would be easier to start at King's Sutton and take the route in reverse. It's easy to follow, and the start in the village means you can easily catch the train here and enjoy hours of easy walking in the quintessential English countryside.

A visit to Kings Sutton isn't just for walking, it's also about visiting the stunning White Horse. As welcoming as ever, this traditional country pub will be happy to welcome you and your pooch. Just a short walk from the station, this pub is an ideal pit stop before and after your walk along the canal or River Cherwell. There are many other walking routes to choose from, and the village is very walkable.

Then, you and your dog can simply hop on the train and return to the starting point. Some towpaths in the country can be overgrown with weeds. For the most part, though, the trail is clear and easy, often with fields beside it, so your pooch can enjoy plenty of lead-free exploration. This trail is also a great opportunity for wildlife viewing.

As stated in the guidebook, this route couldn't be better as you should see the canal all around you the entire walk.

Burton Dassett Hills Country Park

Admittedly, the hills aren't the tallest, but when the rest of the land is so low, it means you can enjoy stunning views of the surrounding countryside from this country park vantage point. Burton Dassett is the ideal place in Banbury for dog walks and is also popular with families, as the lush green grass is perfect for kite flying and picnics, and the paws are perfect for a game of catch. The only caveat is to watch out for the sheep, but you should be able to find a few acres of space to play and walk yourself.

This is Warwickshire's 'Jurassic Park', a land that was once covered by subtropical seas millions of years ago. If you're lucky, you might find a fossil or two in some picnic areas, where the remains of sea creatures such as oysters and squid are often present.

Later in history, some 150 million years later, a church and lighthouse were built in the 12th century, which you can visit on foot across the gentle hills.

Parking is charged, but entry to the park is free. You'll find toilets and plenty of picnic spots on site, it's worth bringing a lunch as you won't be able to believe the stunning views. We think they are the best around Bunbury. If you do want a heartier, warmer meal, the Village Red Lion is dog- and kid-friendly.
