Dogs must be kept on a short lead at all times and bins are provided for owners to use when clearing up after their dogs.
“This new initiative has proved very popular and we have received some great feedback from visitors”, said owner Edward Barham, “The pathways around the gardens and woodland make for a perfect dog walk, with plenty to explore throughout the seasons.”
Dogs are allowed in the courtyard by the Coach House on leads but not allowed in the Rolls Room or Coach House. Water is also available for dogs in the outdoor seating area next to the Coach House.
Opens daily from 1 April. From 5 July, open Wednesdays and Thursdays only from 11am – 6pm. From October, open on Sundays only 11am – 6pm
