What we're about

You don't need your own dog but you probably need to like them! We are a people and dog-friendly group, typically taking a 2-3 hour walk with 25-30 people (and 25-30 dogs!) every other weekend in Gloucestershire or nearby. We also have evening walks in the summer, activities like canoeing and weekends away.

Gloucestershire Walking with Dogs is run as a voluntary, amateur social group (your Meetup membership terms (https://www.meetup.com/terms/) include a release of liability for group organisers). Think of it as joining a group of friends for a walk, where you are responsible for the safety and actions of yourself and your dogs.

Like any responsible walker, we expect everyone to close gates, put dogs on leads around livestock, and take other reasonable steps to stay safe and be courteous to landowners and other users of the areas we visit.

We ask for 50p on walks towards the Meetup subscription fee, with any remaining money kept in a kitty for other group activities (organisers do not receive any income or reimbursement of costs). If paid activities are organised, these are charged at the cost of the third party without markup.

Please get in touch with any questions via the site or call Ben on 07968 211023.

Pittville Park 1 hour walk

Albemarle Gate

I’m going to try a staggered start in 2 groups, so once 6 people have arrived they will set off with Neil, then the rest 10 minutes later. This is a short walk around Pittville Park, there are a couple of bits near the road but should be mostly offlead depending on your dog, although they do need to stay out of the water and away from the swans and ducks (there is a separate bit where the dogs can jump in the river). Meet at the car park off Albemarle Gate and we’ll walk around the lakes and past the pump rooms. I think they’re serving drinks outside at the pump rooms so will make this near the end of the walk as an option. ** Unfortunately we are back to 6 walkers so please only come if you're on the "going" list, make sure your guest is included, and cancel if you can't come so that someone else can. Thanks. ** We ask for a voluntary donation of 50p per walk towards the Meetup subscription (unused money goes to a kitty for group activities). We're a friendly social group run on an amateur and voluntary basis where you are responsible for the safety and actions of yourself and your dogs, please let me know if you have any medical issues I should be aware of.

Cleeve Hill 5 miles

Cleeve Hill Common car park

Meet at the pylons on Cleeve Hill for a circular walk around the top, all offroad and without stiles. There will be some sheep, cows and golfers! It’s about 5 miles so should take around 2.5 hours once we set off. One or two short climbs. The pylons are on the south side of the common (not the golf club or Rising Sun pub side), up Aggs Hill and left at the scorched tree, then all the way to the end. ** Unfortunately we are back to 6 walkers so please only come if you're on the "going" list, make sure your guest is included, and cancel if you can't come so that someone else can.

Gower weekend!

Location visible to members

** MOVED TO JULY 2021 ** With the current restrictions I've moved this camping weekend to next year, when we'll hopefully all be back to normal and looking back on the madness! If you've already made your booking, the campsite will give you a credit for any future booking (you should have received an email from them - if not get in touch via www.threecliffsbay.com). I have booked 9th-12th July 2021. Make sure you also choose TENT NON ELECTRIC, and in the notes field mention the dog group, Ben Jeffery and my booking ref 63743. If you can't make next year, I would suggest waiting until they cancel the booking this year as they would presumably have to offer a refund. If you have any trouble with this, please let me know as I or someone else could buy your credit to use for next year's final balance or campsite/shop extras when we get there. ************* There are also options for electric and campervan pitches, glamping and holiday cottages (not dog friendly), or other accommodation in the area if you want to meet the rest of us in the day. Friday check in from 12pm (I’ll try to get there for mid-afternoon). I’ll arrange a walk and pub lunch Saturday, then a shorter walk on the Sunday (11am check out but they may allow us to leave tents up longer, or at least leave the cars there). Barbecues in the evening! I'm guessing the Swansea Air Show will be the same weekend so there may be traffic and road closures. This is a stunning location with a beautiful dog-friendly beach a few minutes walk away, and lots of local walk and pub options. The campsite is very well equipped with individual bathrooms and a shop including fresh coffee and pretty much anything else you want to buy, but may be cheaper to stop at a supermarket on the way for barbecue food etc. The site has a strict policy of dogs on leads at all times which we need to follow, although there is a walking area nearby where you can let them off, and of course the beach! 10pm noise cut off.
