    We've just got back from an enjoyable week away. We stayed in the Dunnock lodge, four adults and a 7 month old dog. The woodland around the lodges made it an ideal place to walk a little dog, and the ducks and resident dog made...More

    Hi, we would recommend Talkin Tarn Park ... it's not too far from the Tranquil Otter, and it's a nice, round, flat walk. We take our greyhound there whenever we visit the Tranquil Otter! Hope this helps!
