How to Add a Walk

If you have a walk you would like to add simply click ‘View all Discussions’, and then ‘Create New Topic’.

Fill in all the details of your walk, location, type of terrain, is it subtle for all or only experienced walkers? Is it mostly off lead walking? Are there any lakes where your dog could go for a swim? Make sure you give as much detail as possible.

You can even map out your favourite route, and of course don’t forget to post a photograph of your pooch enjoying itself. 

Leaving a reply: Have you got something to add? The North East Dog Directory allows you to interact with other users all over the site; so if you have been on this walk, or similar, let us know!. What was your favourite thing about it? Would you recommend it? Have you got an amazing photograph, then leave a reply by clicking on 'View all replies' and then click 'Leave a reply'.

Coatham Woods, Nr. Longnewton

Woodland walk with a purpose built dog activity trail. 

Look out for obstacles such as hurdles, woody weaves and the log walk and let your dog cool off with a well earned swim!

Activity trail is 1.5 miles long, but there are also two waymarked walks that take in a lot more land - you could easily spend hours here!

Dogs can be off lead the whole time as once you're away from the road and carpark, it's just miles of fields and woodland. However, there are gaps in the fence that runs alongside the road which you have to be aware of if you head to the left after walking down the path from the carpark and crossing the bridge. 

There is a carpark, as it's situated between Longnewton and Yarm. Operates a 'stick & flick' policy on dog mess. Be aware that there can be livestock in neighbouring fields (although I've only ever heard and not seen them), and occasionally you may meet horse riders. It's a good place to meet other dog walkers, but there is equal opportunity to walk alone due to the variety of routes that can be taken. There are several ponds, although dogs must be kept out of some as they're nature ponds. There are two at the end of the activity trail that dogs can swim in to their hearts content - my Springer loves these the most!
