Cherry is making this the best summer holidays ever, we had her last year but sshe was too young for proper adventures. everyday we have been out for hours with her, finding rivers to play in, rope swings in the woods, a million adventures to be had, the kids are desperate to take her out all the time and no matter hw much they are bickering at home the minute we are in the countryside with our trusty pooch the world is like that of a famous five novel. Also saved u a fortune on structured 'safe' play we are having proper innocent muddy fun.
Just wanted to share keep reading so many negative things about dogs on here at the moment.

same here. we spent 2 days last week at the lakes. ralphs splashing in rivers, kids exploring and fishing, me sunbathing.

its a good walk to the lakes. but i want more areas to explore, so might see if i can get the kids to walk to the mimram river next week. its a lot further out, but not as popular as stanborough.

yes, its great to have free entertainment healthy outdoors lifestyle for the family

dogs add so much enjoyment to walking. we love going to the woods, making dens, river swimming. we do so much more outdoors than we would if we weren't taking the dogs for a walk

That's fab. If we leave London one day we'll get a family dog and do the same.
