Lion's Den - A short car journey (approx. 3.5 miles) will allow your pooch to find themselves in Lion's Den, one of the only fields in the country with access to woodland as well as grass. Not only does this provide shade in the warmer weather, and a more realistic training environment, but it means your dog will have a more enriched walk. This exercise area includes play equipment that is enriching for all the canine senses, and is also well drained, so don't worry about booking during wet periods. Lions den must be booked in advance for one family of dogs at a time, so you can have a relaxed walk with the peace of mind that you have the field to yourself with no other people or dogs around. Time slots book up quickly so it is advisable to book your time before you arrive at your lodge.

Fraisthorpe is actually part of Bridlington Bay, but unlike that part of the beach, Fraisthorpe is open to dogs all year. At Cowshed cafe you can even treat your pet to a doggie lolly if they are in stock. If you want to go paddling, Fraisthorpe is a great option too, as the beach slopes very gently.
Fabulous dog friendly beach with miles of walking, Great dog friendly cafe too and toilets, car park £3 all day in summer: Fraisthorpe ticks all the boxes for a fund day out at the beach with your dog.
If your dog enjoys a long trek, they will be welcome on any of the walks listed below.
However, if they’re getting on a bit or just plain lazy there is an ‘on the doorstep’ walk where they can stretch their legs and do their business (don’t forget to clean up behind them!)
Walk 1 – at the main entrance turn left and walk past the farm entrance and houses on the main road. A few hundred yards further, on the opposite side of the road you will find the entrance road to Rowley Manor. Head down this road (lots of open countryside and our local church to see) until just before you reach the hotel then head back the way you came. This walk will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes, depending on how fast you walk.
