Beautiful views of Llandegla 

What did I learn this weekend? Not to go to Wales on a Saturday especially if it’s sunny or in the midst of the summer holidays.

 After looking for another dog friendly location Llandegla seemed like the perfect place, walking trails, lovely views and a lake for the dog to swim in. Shortly after setting off we were quickly stopped by traffic heading into North Wales, which wasn’t the best start. After a quick change on the Sat Nav, we rerouted and took the long way round through the Cheshire countryside which ended up taking us over 2 hours, not the best way to complete a journey that should have taken us about an hour.

 On arrival we took a look at all the routes available around Llandegla which were a mixture of walking and biking routes. Due to having no idea which way was best we attempted to follow the route that looked like it went straight to the lake, which somehow we actually managed to do without getting lost. After wandering around and taking lots of photos we eventually removed the dog from the lake and set off home to roads with no traffic.

Weekend walk around Delamere

Due to English weather being unpredictable you make the most out of weekends when the weather is dry or if lucky enough has a hint of sun. Last weekend I spent my time dog sitting so my days out needed to be somewhere that didn’t include too much traveling and also allowed dogs. After hemming and hawing on where would be best to go I settled with a trip to Delamere forest. Delamere is a local woodland area which has multiple walking and cycles routes, along with different outdoor activities such as Goape and segwaying.  

The views around Delamere are beautiful and depending on how much time you have, or in my case how far you 10 year old dog can walk, there are many different view points.
