DOG FRIENDLY

What can be better than a walk with your best friend where you can stop off at a welcoming pub or café? But what if that best friend has four legs and muddy feet? In the Maldon district we have a wide range of dog friendly pubs, cafes and accommodation providers who look forward to welcoming you and your canine.

In the Maldon District we have many miles of beautiful footpaths and seawalls for you to explore with your canine buddy, whether you want woodland, countryside, picturesque villages or the open skies of the estuary landscape.

Why not try one of our downloadable guided walks by Chris Harvey, many of which coincide with a dog friendly refreshment stop, or make your way along the whole 75 miles of the Saltmarsh coast.

Whether you want a town walk or somewhere 'off the beaten track' you will find plenty of walks and open spaces to take your furry friend.

A short stroll or a longer walk, our diverse landscape has everything you could need and more.
