Bring your dog to enjoy our acres of parkland

Exploring our acres of parkland with your four-legged friend is a great way to enjoy the beautiful landscape, and we welcome well-behaved dogs. Attingham attracts thousands of dog walkers a year, so to ensure that everyone can enjoy their visit we've put together a dog policy to give you more information on bringing your cuddly canine here for a day trip.

Shaping our dog policy

We'll be collecting feedback until the end of June, so share your thoughts

Attingham has changed a lot since we last asked visitors to help us shape our Dog Policy in 2007. We're proud to welcome responsible dog walkers and want to make sure that our Dog Policy continues to balance the needs of all our visitors, so we've come up with some ways we might revise it. To find out more and give us your feedback, please fill out a consultation card on your visit or complete our online survey before the end of June 2014.

The ins and outs

We welcome assistance dogs only in our indoor spaces, including the mansion and our indoor catering outlets - all paws are very welcome to explore our grounds.

Letting loose

We’ve got some great paths for paws, and our dog policy shows you where you can let your dog off the lead to stretch their legs. Please enjoy running free in these areas and keep the lead on in the rest of our grounds and car park.

Paws-ing for snacks

After a good walk, you and your dog might need a drink. You can find outdoor catering at the Greedy Pig in our orchard, open at weekends (weather dependent). There’s outdoor seating for dog walkers at our mansion tea-room and stables café, and dog bowls of water around the site.
