Hell Wath, a nature reserve in the middle of Ripon allows you and your dog to walk for miles safely. It’s heaven for dogs, there are fields and woodlands and lots of rivers for the dogs to play in.
Lots of people walk their dogs off lead here, it’s a lovely peaceful place for a few hours pottering and obviously quieter after 9am and on weekdays.
It’s just 5 mins drive from the house and is roughly the area with the blue line.
Refreshments: Lottie’s Coffee Van is open: Tues - Fri, near Hell Wath dog walk (nice cakes).
