Castle Acre walk was looking good when we checked it out at the weekend, grass was damp along by the river but apart from that it was fairly dry. The pub are happy to have dogs in the garden or inside if it's chilly. Look forward to seeing you there, it's a really nice walk along side the river, around the castle and through this very pretty village.
Thank you to all who came along to Castle Acre today, it was a really lovely, relaxed walk and the weather was perfect Will post some pics soon and hopefully others will post some better ones We had 23 dogs with us today.
