Here goes, saw this heading and thought we are always looking for new days out,pubs etc. I know we all live flung far and wide but that can be important when visiting new places. Any body in the South East may remember Leonardslee Gardens from a few years ago,beautiful place,unfortunately it was bought up and they closed it to the public. Well it has been sold again and i am pleased to announce it is reopening this spring,dogs allowed on leads,Iwill be fitting in a visit,it is just south of Horsham West Sussex. Watch this space for a review. H and D

This is a great topic! Could be very useful indeed for doggy days out.
Down here in Cornwall it's all about knowing the best beaches for when the "Dog ban" comes in at Easter til 1st October. My absolute top tip for all year fabulousness is Porth Kidney- just around from Carbis bay( which has the dog ban) Porth Kidney is a beautiful golden sandy beach perfect for ball games and spacious enough to never feel crowded. And it's dog friendly everyday! Dude says it's paradise :D

Hi Pollydoodle, yes Dude is actually managing village walks again! He takes a bit of persuading out of the gate and prefers it if both Paul and I walk him but it’s a huge improvement. Hope you manage to get to Porth Kidney sometime :D
Re Leonardslee gardens I remember going there with my school for an art trip,I grew up in Brighton. Leonardslee was lovely then so it’d be great to have an update. We were up in E Sussex in September and really enjoyed Scotney Castle which is dog friendly. We also had lovely walks on the Downs which took me back to walking with my Mum and her dogs.

We had a lovely holiday last September in East Sussex. It was our first visit to that area as it is quite a long journey for us.We had a lovely dog friendly cottage near Lewes. We had some great walks on the South Downs and even managed a trip to Brighton. Avoided the town centre with dog but did the Undercliff walk there. We started at the Marina and walked to Rottingdean. Found several dog friendly cafes via Trip advisor on the way! West Sussex looks an interesting area so very interested to learn of dog friendly walks and places to visit there.

Hi Marymuffin, as it is near us (Hove) I remember with sadness when it was sold I hope all the beautiful Rhododendrons are still there. It was spectacular, will defiantly visit when they are in bloom. We moved to West Sussex 3 years ago and find this area great for dog friendly walks and cafes, wonderful seafront walks along Goring and ferring, the bluebird cafe is completely dog friendly and has great food, whilst right on the beach always a welcome break after a long walk.

We are off to Westward Ho in April staying at a lovely dog friendly cottage, I am hoping there are plenty of places to eat at with Holly. It looks a really lovely area for walking. Never visited this area of Devon so lots of exploring to do.

For those visiting South Devon this Spring/Summer.

With the beach ban starting from April 1st the bathing side of Dawlish Warren will be off limits to dogs until October 1st but for anyone visiting the area you can still take your dog's onto the beach from groin three to groin nine.(access via the sand track at the end of the promenade)
The Boathouse pub/restaurant on the sea front welcomes dogs too .
There is a further walk towards Red Rock (to the right of the boathouse) that leads to another beach where dogs are also welcome..
