  • The Burrows are quite extensive - something around three square miles. The ground can become a little waterlogged in winter and some selfish drivers park on the grass, turning it into a mud bath. It i...  more »

  • Lovely walk here this morning. The tide was in so I had fun with my mum's dogs making them swim for a ball. It was clean and tidy. Also. Dog mess bins are right there at all the car parks.
  • Very exposed to the elements but a great place to do bird watching. If you like walking? You'll love the Burrows. Do take a sturdy pair of walking shoes or wellingtons as it gets very wet and muddy underfoot during the winter and springtime. This is also a great place to walk your dog but please be aware that the Burrows is also the home of the Westward Ho! golf course. One end of it is also farm land. Sheep, ponies and horses roam freely there. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have your dog under control at all times. Unfortunately the Burrows only has toilets in its visitors centre and this is more often closed than it is open.
  • Cracking site for walking or birding. Unfortunately, it lacks a loo and, if you are a birder, a hide. Between March and October there are quite expensive parking fees but outside these times it's free. Worth a visit.
  • Fantastic place to walk the dog. Scenery is fantastic.
  • Plenty of open space, horses and sheep roaming around. A real chilled out open space.
