The Top 6 Pet Friendly Walks on the Isle of Wight According to manaboutadogblog

The Island is a beautiful place. Don’t take my word for it. Ask Queen Victoria, ask Alfred Lord Tennyson, ask Alan Titchmarsh! It is truly walking heaven and now Wight Locations have asked us to pick out the 6 best walks for you and your dog. So we pulled on our boots and came up with the following.

Chilli garlic dressing

Visit the Garlic Farm Shop & Restaurant for a truly unique experience. The beautiful site is at the foot of the Mersley downs overlooking the Arreton Valley. Sip a coffee and admire the view whilst enjoying a visit from the red squirrels. An array of gourmet, garlicky food is on offer in the restaurant and after you've tasted the products in the taste experience, you might want to browse in the shop which is brimming with garlicky gift ideas and fine produce from the Island. There's also free access to the farm walks and they welcome dogs on the patio and in the Allium Café.
