Introducing Tara

Tara is a young Collie cross who loves her walks in the Wiltshire countryside of which there are lots to be discovered within a short distance of the Swindon town. Tara was rescued from the Diana Brimblecombe Animal Rescue Centre - please support them
If you don't have a dog, no matter, theres nothing to stop you from equally enjoying them


Looking for Short walks in Swindon?

Tara's Trails was started when we found it almost impossible to find walks in and around Swindon that weren't half day or whole day treks. We are building up a website of short walks that can be completed in about 2 hours and less than 3.5 miles. So don't worry if you are not a rambler these walks should be suitable for that Sunday afternoon stroll.


Some of our Swindon walks

Ashbury, Barbury Castle, Bincknoll, Broad Blunsdon, Buscot, Coleshill, Draycot Foliat, Great Coxwell, Hannington Wick, Hodson, Moulden Hill, Stratton Wood, Stanton Park, Swanborough, Templars Firs, Webbs Wood, Webbs Wood 2, Clouts Wood, Salthrop, Shaw Forest & Peatmore Lagoon, Nightingale Wood, Coatewater, Old Town Rail Path, Wanborough, Seven Fields

Keep it Safe!

We don't like thinking about it but it's a fact of life that car thieves operate in rural areas and we have contacted by one walker who was an unfortunate victim recently. So make sure that you follow our quick guide to protect your car and valuables so it doesn't happen to you.

Lock it - Always lock your car including sunroofs and windows, don't leave them an invitation

Remove it - Take your possessions with you and don't leave valuables in your glove box

Hide it - Never leave anything on view. If you can't take your possessions with you lock them in the boot
