Surrounded by rolling countryside as far as the eye can see, Honiton is the perfect destination for walkers of all ages and abilities, whether you’re looking for a gentle stroll or something more challenging.

It is also a great place for dog walking, so if you’re staying nearby and are looking for places to visit while on a dog friendly break, check out some of these walks.

Roundball Wood

Easily accessed from those of you in Honiton, Roundball Wood is a great place for a dog or family friendly route, it’s fairly easy to navigate and the paths are clearly marked. It can get pretty muddy depending on the weather, so make sure to wear appropriate clothing and shoes and to keep a towel on hand for the dog, as no doubt they will find the muddiest place possible!

Dumpdon Hill Fort

On the outskirts of Honiton, you’ll find Dumpdon Hill Fort, a very picturesque place for a stroll with the dog. This former hill fort has been here since the Iron Age and is over 200 meters above sea level, so there are some incredible views and on a clear day, you can see countryside for miles.

We recommend taking the dog around the circular walk which follows the lower level of the hill fort, you can access this from the car park and is sign posted, but if you want to enjoy endless views and have a more athletic pup, head up hill following the path.

Combe Woods

This National Trust managed section of woodland is a little way out of Honiton but is a lovely place for a walk. It’s a fairly easy route, with generally flat terrain throughout, you can access the walking route from the Combe Wood lay by and then follow the waymarked signs, which will bring you back to the lay by. To get here, use the postcode, EX14 4TG.
