Weston WoodsGet directions
Weston Woods is a 130 hectares (321 acres) woodland between Sand Bay and Weston-super-Mare Beach. It is a surprisingly large woodland, and you could easily spend about 2-3 hours here and cover most the area. Alternatively, for a shorter dog walk, you and your pup could walk straight from the car park main entrance to Worlebury Hillfort which would take about 30 minutes (1.5 miles).
Once you set foot and paw in the woods, there is a gravel mobility path, built to cater for parents with pushchairs or wheelchair users. You can follow this path, which will take you to the Worlebury Hillfort, as will many of the good side paths.
Weston Woods is quite a popular place to walk doggies, so you will definitely meet some on your way around. But there are so many paths to choose from, you can choose the quieter side paths if you want.
If you venture to the iron age remnants of Worlebury Hillfort on the western side of the wood, you will find some stunning views over the Bristol Channel towards Wales. This ancient monument was built over 2300 years ago, although overgrown and damaged, many of the storage pits and parts of the defensive walls are still visible. From the flat area, you can admire the views and appreciate the reasons why the fort was built here! There is a cliff edge in this area, so please make sure your dog is safe.
