Southwick Country Park
Southwick Country Park is a popular place for walkers with a series of well laid out walking paths linking a series of fields. It is located on the edge of Trowbridge in Wiltshire. This walk takes you through the 100 acre site and into the surrounding countryside where you can see woodpeckers, buzzards and water voles. There is also a nature centre where you can feed the animals. See the video below for more details of this.
To continue your walking in the area you could try our Trowbridge Park and River Walk which visits the lovely sensory garden in the park. Biss Meadows Country Park is also nearby and has some good riverside trails to try.
The park is also located close to the town of Bradford on Avon where you can extend your walking along the Kennet and Avon Canal and the River Avon.

There's a nice on site cafe where you can enjoy refreshments after your walk. If you fancy a pub lunch then head into nearby Southwick and you could visit The Farmhouse. It's an historic pub full of character, being housed in a 17th century building. They do great home cooked food and have a nice garden area for warmer days. They can be found on Frome Road at postcode BA14 9QD for your sat navs.
The large fields and woodland areas are ideal for dog walking. It's a popular place so you're likely to see other owners on your visit. The Farmhouse pub mentioned above is also dog friendly.
