Best places for dog walking in Barry and surrounding areas.

Getting out and walking the dog is not only great for your physical health, but great for your mental health too. The fresh air and beautiful views we are blessed with here in Barry and The Vale of Glamorgan are the perfect way to get out and about. We have some of the best areas for dog walking in Barry and surrounding areas, so I thought I would share some of my favourite spots:

Porthkerry Park, Barry

If you love extensive fields, woodland walks and nature trails Porthkerry Park is perfect for dog walking. With its cliff-top pathways and pebble beach plus an on-site café, it makes for a perfect dog walk.

Cosmeston Lakes, Penarth

I regularly visit Cosmeston with some of the dogs I walk. With beautiful views walking around the lake and woodland area, the dogs really love it there, come rain or shine!

The Knap, Barry

Another favourite of mine, the Knap not only has great walks with green space and pebble beach, but also has some of my favourite cafes in Barry to stop off for a coffee and a cheeky slice of cake!

Coast and Pier Dog Friendly Walk, Penarth

If you have recently added a dog to your family, the Coast and Pier dog friendly walk in Penarth is a great way to start your dog walking adventures. It is an easy walk with stunning views, no livestock or stiles and plenty of dog litter bins along the trail.

Jacksons Bay, Barry Island

A firm favourite with dog walkers in Barry, Jacksons Bay’s sandy beach is loved by all my dogs I walk! There are some flat rocks and a green area behind the cliffs too, but who doesn’t love a walk along the beach?! Also what’s really good is that dogs are allowed on Jackson’s Bay all year round!
